Tony Romo backs Cowboys offensive line
|The original No. 88, Drew Pearson, shares his take on how Jason Witten's spleen injury has affected his play and the Cowboys' offensive woes. |
How confident is Romo?
“Give me a scale, 1 to 10?” he said.
“Let’s go with a 10,” Romo said. “I feel very confident.”
Romo has been sacked seven times so far and he was hit too often last week against Tampa Bay. He was sacked a career-high 36 times last year and has suffered rib, hand, collarbone and finger injuries in three of the last four years that have cost him games or limited him in games to a degree.
“You just go out and play,” Romo said. “At the end of the day, I have to control what I control. If someone gets beat, it’s my job to help them out every once in a while and do that. You don’t want to make a living at that just because at some point that’s going to catch you, but at the same time, it’s part of my job to do that. And they’re going to make me look better on other plays. It’s just everybody helping everybody.”
