Tony Romo met with reporters after throwing out the first pitch at Rangers Ballpark. He addressed a variety of topics, including playing for Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett wanting to get better and Terrell Owens getting released.
Romo on Jerry Jones wanting to win: "As badly as I want to win and I feel like sometimes I need to -- it’s hard because I’m so competitive -- feel like you want to do anything possible to get there. I love Jerry just for the fact he has the same approach. I think every owner wants to win, but Jerry’s decisions are going to do whatever gives us the best chance to win right now, right at this moment and I love that. That’s all that you play for, what’s going to happen right now? And this upcoming season is the most important season we’ve ever had, and that’s the approach that you take."
On Jerry Jones' passion: "I’ve always felt it from him and I love the passion that he has because usally the same stuff he feels or says is the exact same way I feel. That sense of urgency is absolutely there and I love having an owner like that who knows it’s about right now. To me, that makes it fun to know that our team is going to be better this year. And I really firmly believe that we’re going to be an improved ball club, and that’s exciting for me. The way the guys have come to work and way the OTAs and the offseason have gone, it’s been great to see."
On coach Jason Garrett wanting to improve: "If you’re not improving, you’re getting worse so I feel like that’s just part of being good at your job. You have to want to improve. If you think you’ve arrived or gotten there, then you’re just waiting to be obsolete and move on. ... Its’ exactly the approach that everyone should have on our football team. Everyone has to get better and I think guys have done a good job of that this year."
On Terrell Owens getting released: "No comment on that stuff."
On Rangers/ Mavericks success: "It’s great. I think it’s exciting. Hopefully we can follow suit with what the Mavericks and Rangers have been able to eaccomplished, continuing to raise the bar around here. Hopefully it’s our turn going forward."
On pressure to perform: "There’s always pressure to perform. That’s part of playing in the NFL and at the highest level. You’ve just got to go out and be committed to being the best you can be and you’ve just got to do it."
