Roger Staubach: Tony Romo isn't the problem

1/30/2012

Roger Staubach stands firm in his belief that the Cowboys have a Super Bowl-caliber quarterback.

“We have the quarterback that can do it in Tony Romo,” Staubach said during a Monday appearance on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd.

Staubach, who won two Super Bowls with the Cowboys in the 1970s, was asked whether he believes the Romo’s heavily scrutinized lack of postseason success affects the Cowboys’ current franchise quarterback.

“Tony’s a fierce competitor, but as a player, he’s done extremely well,” Staubach said. “It has to be a factor because you want to win, you want to get to the playoffs and you want to do everything you can to get to the Super Bowl and win the Super Bowl. It’s a team effort, though. I was very fortunate. We had two different kind of teams when we won the Super Bowls that we won, but we had strong defenses and good offenses.

“I think Tony definitely is more of the solution. He’s not the problem at all. He’s more of the solution. Part of the solution has to be on defense. That was an issue for the Cowboys this year, but you’re a game or two away. Look at the Giants.”
