Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten On Tony Romo: "He's An Elite Quarterback"

New, 1 comment

Jason Witten spoke to the media after an appearance at a local Dunkin Donuts, and unsurprisingly, went up to bat for his quarterback, Tony Romo.

Romo has opted not to play in a local U.S. Open qualifier, which has led some to believe that he's now more serious about football. Witten finds that a bit silly. Per Todd Archer:

"I don't think anybody ever doubted his dedication, but I do think there's a perception that goes along with that," Witten said. "That's never taken anything away from what he's done on the football field. He's the first one in. He's the last one to leave. He's been that way for a long time. I believe he puts us in position to be successful. He's an elite quarterback but until he wins a championship and we do that, the critics are going to come. But the best thing about him is he's so far past that that he knows he's got one goal and he's all in to do that."

Maybe this whole "elite" quarterback thing will work for Romo. After all, last year Eli Manning said that he was elite, and then went on to have a successful season.
