The Dallas Cowboys have their guy in Tony Romo, despite the belief that the Cowboys wanted to draft a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft. Although there are concerns over his back injuries and his overall health, Romo is a warrior and he is in for a huge 2014 season. Here’s what Romo had to say for the Cowboys’ future prospects over the next few years.
“I’m excited. I think the next four or five years are going to be our best team. I like to think that we’re going to be much improved next year, but I also know that over the course of the next couple seasons we’re going to be a much, much better football team than we’ve been in the last few years.
With that being said, it’s easy to see why Romo believes that. The offensive line in front of him is one of the bests in the league led by Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick, and Zack Martin. The talent at the skill positions around him are also top-notch. Dez Bryant is one of the best receivers in the NFL and Terrance Williams will be looking to improve on his successful rookie season. You can’t forget about Jason Witten, Romo’s best friend, as he will be in Dallas until he retires.
New offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has said that he wants to run the football a ton in 2014. At first glance, that doesn’t sound good for Romo’s production, but it will end up helping him as running the football will open up the passing game for Romo.
This offensive line will keep Romo upright and that means he will have a huge season. To be honest, Romo has never had consistent time in the pocket and when he has, Romo has been unbelievable. It wouldn’t surprise me at all to see Romo in the Pro Bowl by the end of the 2014 season.
