What would cause an here-we-go-again reaction in Dallas? Try more clutch mistakes by QB Tony Romo. Or another 0-2 start.
Or, perhaps, both.
Romo, and if he’ll bounce back against the 49ers, is the big story in Dallas this week. Cowboys beat writer Clarence E. Hill of The Star Telegram told NFL Network on Thursday that Romo has said all the right things this week and also has the universal support from his teammates.
“His problems are in big games, his problems are in the playoffs,” Hill said. “But he will bounce back. He’s done it in the past. I don’t see any reason why he won’t do it now.”
This conversation certainly isn’t new, regardless of whether or not you own membership in Cowboys Nation. As far as Hill is concerned, there’s only one way for Romo to put an end to all the criticism.
“He won’t live down this reputation,” Hill said. “This will be his legacy until he wins it all.”
