Only Jerry Jones: Owner says Tony Romo is best QB for Cowboys because of his Hispanic heritage

 Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a way with words and a unique perspective.

He is admittedly prone to hyperbole. It's always why his radio show on 105.3 The Fan is must-listen radio. 

On Tuesday, he had a couple of doozies, starting off with a story about drinking beer and betting on rats racing across the room with quarterback Tony Romo.

Then, in a continued effort to laud his quarterback and cater to a growing Hispanic and Latino fan base, Jones said Romo is the perfect quarterback for the Cowboys because of his Hispanic heritage -- never mind that Jones initially thought Romo was Italian.

“We couldn’t have a better quarterback,” Jones said. “We just couldn’t. Bill Parcells and I thought he was Italian. Then we found out that his grandparents were from Mexico. We couldn’t have a better quarterback with a background of Hispanic for the Dallas Cowboys.”

Only Jerry Jones.
