Cowboys owner Jerry Jones talked to Tony Romo this weekbut not to reassure him of anything. Jones said Romo is fine and will bounce back from last week's two-turnover performance that cost the Cowboys in a 27-24 loss to the Jets.
"He doesn’t need a conversation from me to do what he needs to do to realize where he is," Jones said. "He doesn’t need that. But I have talked to him this week."
Romo completed 23 of 36 passes for 342 yards, two touchdowns and a 101.9 passer rating against the league’s third-ranked defense from a year ago. But his two turnovers in the final nine minutes cost the Cowboys. He had a fumble inside the 5 that cost the Cowboys a scoring opportunity and his interception led to the Jets' game-winning field goal.
It was the latest ammunition provided to Romo's critics, who argue he isn't a clutch quarterback. But Jones is confident he can win with Romo.
"I look at his preparation," Jones said. "I look at his dedication and his grasp of the game, and then I look at his skills. I weigh all of that. I’m certainly very sensitive about protecting the ball when I weigh that whole area of input. He’s good enough."
