Tony Romo Says 'Mental Toughness' Is Key For Cowboys' Season

Tony Romo isn't worried about the injuries that are piling up in Dallas, nor is he worried about the Cowboys' offensive line.

Romo said he believes "mental toughness" will be the key to Dallas' 2012 season, where expectations are pretty high.

"You got to have mental toughness," Romo said. "Everybody on the football team, at the end of the day, you have to be at your best, regardless of the circumstance, and that's your approach you got to take as a football team and as each individual."

Dallas' mental toughness has been questioned in the past, as has Romo's leadership and late-game performance,as the Cowboys gave away multiple games in the fourth quarter during a disappointing 2011 season.

As the season draws near, the Cowboys quarterback is certainly saying all the right things -- as he always has. It remains to be seen whether that will translate into success for the Cowboys in '12.
