I'll say this... to be Tony Romo, you have to have a strong fortitude and no claustrophobic issues. I don't think I could truly describe the swarm around him when he talked this morning, but you could imagine. Anyway, here are some tidbits from his talk:
Should you be more of a leader? "I don't know if any year is any different from any other year. When you play the position that quarterbacks in the NFL play, here it's always all those things on the table. It's all part of playing the position. You either can handle all the stuff that goes along that's off the field and handle all the stuff off the field. Again, you're not going to last very long. Again, that's being good with what you do."
Better appreciation of public perception after this offseason? "I'm going to go through it again for the next two months, three months, six months, however many years. There's always something new around the corner. It's just part of playing the position. There's no secret way of getting around it or of doing anything. Like I said, you're just lucky enough to play a game, you work as hard as you can to try and achieve your goals and fight like heck to do it. That's part of it."
How did your dad rank among your receivers this off-season, catching balls from you? "He does a great job. His fingers are getting a little older now. I definitely wouldn’t be where I’m at without my dad, obviously for being a dad, but I think he’s caught way too many footballs in too much cold weather sometimes."
Were you hurt end of last season? Was that underplayed? And how hurt were you? "No. Not underplayed. It’s the season. Like a quarterback, it’s just part of playing the position, you get banged up and you’re either tough enough to keep going forward or you’re not. It’s part of playing football. You just have to keep fighting and overcome nicks, bruises, injuries, blah, blah, blah, whatever."
