The Cowboys still haven’t announced who will call the plays this season. Coach Jason Garrett also doesn’t seem eager to acknowledge quarterback Tony Romo’s increased involvement in the offense, including game-planning.
“I think Tony Romo is a great leader for our football team,” Garrett said Wednesday. “He’s been a guy who’s always been very committed to what we’re doing, and it’s something that we have always wanted as coaches. You want your quarterback to be involved. We’ve always feel like he’s done that, and he’ll continue to do that going forward.”
The Cowboys committed their future to Romo with a six-year, $108 million extension this off-season. With that apparently comes more responsibility as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during the draft that he expected Romo to put in “Peyton Manning-type time” at Valley Ranch.
