The Cowboys have an uphill climb on their playoff push, but quarterback Tony Romo does not have a bad feeling.
Not as long as they have a chance.
“This time of year, we’re in a position to where we have a chance. That's something that not every team can say at this point,” Romo said during his weekly session with reporters at Valley Ranch. “Obviously, we would like to be in a better position. But I like the feeling that at least your team has a chance to do something special at the end of this season. It's going to take great effort and great commitment and everybody doing their job a little better than what we've done at this point. I think our team can do that, and we just need to start that off this week.”
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said earlier in the week that the team is running out of time to make the playoffs, although there is still time for improvement.
Romo said he doesn’t think about running out of time.
“I do know this game right now, we have a chance,” he said. “Leading up to this football game, knowing that, I know it’s not the record we want at this point. But I also know that we can change that from this point forward. It’s what we do now that matters. I’ve tried to instill that with the different guys. I think they understand that. We have to do some things better to change the outcome, the record of what it’s been so far.
“Hopefully we’ll get a few guys back healthy and some things can shift a little.”
