Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said no one should question his trust in quarterback Tony Romo.
But the questions are there following the Cowboys’ running the ball three times before punting late in the game last week against the New England Patriots. The Patriots got the ball back and drove for the winning touchdown.
It was one game after Romo threw three second-half interceptions as the Cowboys lost a 24-point lead against the Detroit Lions.
“There is absolutely no issue with my trust level in Tony Romo,” Garrett said. “And anybody who’s followed our football team understands the kind of trust and belief I have in him and our football team has in him.”
Garrett said he puts a lot of responsibility on Romo in every game.
“He’s certainly responded to that really, really well over the last 4 1/2 years, and there’s no reason for us to think otherwise,” Garrett said. “I think if you look at his season so far, he’s really shown that he can play really, really well as a quarterback in this league, like he has over the last 4 1/2 years. We believe very strongly in him. I believe very strongly in him, and we’re just going to keep going forward.”
