SAN DIEGO -- The Cowboys head home Wednesday after spending almost a month in training camp.
For quarterback Tony Romo, things went well. Check that: really, really good.
"I think in a lot of ways camp is over, (but) we’re going back and we’re going to work," Romo said after Tuesday's practice. "We still got some stuff to get better at but it was a great start to the season with the effort and commitment the guys made. I know we got some guys banged up so we got to get a lot of guys healthy, but we laid the foundation. It was a really, really good camp for the Dallas Cowboys."
The Cowboys (1-1) make their 2012 home debut Saturday against St. Louis at Cowboys Stadium.
Romo will not have his starting wide receivers, center and tight end for that game. Yet, Romo said he was pleased with the intensity level of training camp, especially the last two days as the Cowboys practiced with the San Diego Chargers.
Sometimes with the end of training camp in sight, players tend to relax.
Romo said that wasn't the case.
"Our team doesn't take that approach. We don’t look past the day," he said. "That's one of the best things about this team, they've done a great job of handling adversity and handling just the ability to focus in on the task at hand. If you can do that, it's mental toughness. We say it all the time. I think mental toughness is being your best regardless of the circumstance, and that’s what our approach is out here."
