Cowboys offense still evolving
Not yet, according to Romo.
“You have certain people at certain positions and you have to, not necessarily call plays for, but build off what you’re going to be good at,” Romo said. “I think you develop that in training camp and develop your core plays you know you’re going to have during the year each week.”
This is Romo’s sixth year with Jason Garrett calling the plays but he believes each year the offense has been a little different.
“One year you can have play action and take seven steps and have three hitches and another year you’ve got to get the ball out,” Romo said. “In other years you’re a drop-back team. You go with tour personnel a little bit. That’s what you need to do … The Patriots, they’re in two tight ends a lot of it now. For a while they were an empty type of team. Back in the early 2000s they were an I-formation, then they turned into a spread team. It just depends on who you have on your team.”
