Tony Romo on Jason Witten: Best teammate
|Cowboys TE Jason Witten pulls back the curtain on the decision process of playing against the Giants after injuring his spleen. |
Said linebacker Sean Lee, “Witten is the ultimate warrior. He’s the ultimate teammate. He’s the ultimate tight end. He’s the ultimate leader. He really is the leader of our team in a lot of ways, and to see him come out here when we thought there was a high probability of him not playing, he went to every last effort to play in this game. That just shows the type of commitment he has. He’s the leader we all look up to.”
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones did not want to get overly dramatic, but brought up the movie El Cid from 1961.
“He was inspirational,” Jones said. “He was more than that. He was tactically a major part of what we were able to do.”
