Jerry Jones thinks about how far Romo, franchise's new TD pass leader, has come since early days

The Cowboys downplayed Tony Romo’s new franchise record for touchdown passes, understandably focused in midseason on the idea of winning games.

But owner Jerry Jones put perspective on the accomplishment by remembering when Romo was an undrafted rookie, making plays and raising eyebrows.

“I can still picture when he would walk out there when he first got on the Cowboys and the defensive coaches would just pull their hair out with frustration because they couldn’t stop him on the field,” Jones said. “They would say, ‘Well, but he’s got to play right, because he can’t throw across the defense. He can’t be shoving that ball up in the middle of these defensive players. That won’t win in the NFL.’

“Glad to see him have the night he had and break the record. He certainly has worked hard to deserve it.”

Romo continues to set every single Cowboys team passing record conceivable. Yet the team he quarterbacks for continues to be a .500 team. Only Jerry and his band of followers continue to be satisfied with mediocrity. Unbelievable..in my eyes.
