“The crazy thing is those guys want to talk about football after football,” Romo said in a radio interview Friday on 1310-AM The Ticket. “You know, when we’re done, it’s a great thing. Me, Sean Lee, Dez, we’re after the game or the night before at dinner, wherever, you sit there just talking football.”
Romo said that has the Cowboys on a good start toward a good locker room.
“You just get a bunch of guys who love football and love to compete,” he said. “That alone is going to give you a great shot to have a great locker room. Because people are going to want to – basically, you want to hang out with people who have similar interests.”
Romo said it is one of the reasons he and tight end Jason Witten are close.
“I love hanging out with J just because he wants to be football, football 24/7,” Romo said. “I love that aspect about him. When you have a guy who is talented and as good as he is who also loves the game like that and doesn’t miss, I mean, the trickle down to the rest of your team ... I mean, you just can’t have enough guys like that.”
Romo continued, “It’s great. It’s a great thing to see from a quarterback, from a coach, whatever. It’s just guys love it. They love competing, they love trying to get better. That to me is what makes a great locker room, is a shared a commitment.”
