Despite some communication and timing errors that led to false starts, Cook held his own and helped the Cowboys go over 400 yards on offense in the 24-17 victory.
“That just shows you how someone must have studied and taken the game seriously even in a backup position leading into the game,” Romo said in a radio interview Friday on 1310-AM The Ticket. “That’s outstanding. Now that’s the kind of guy you want on your football eam. I was proud of him for what he did.”
Cook was acquired last week by the Cowboys in a trade with the Miami Dolphins. He took over at center when center Phil Costa went out with a back problem after three plays.
“A week ago, he was on a different team,” Romo said. “That really is incredible, when you look at it – the ability to come in and have poise and to kind of still communicate the way he did during the game.”
