Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is not only finally agreeing with owner Jerry Jones that there is a sense of urgency in organization to make a long playoff and possible Super Bowl run.
He also believes the talent and environment is finally right in the organization for the Cowboys to finally do so after winning just two playoff games since 1996.
It has him more excited about the 2012 season than any in recent memory.
“There is a sense of urgency every year that we have success and do some things that we are excited about,” said Romo, during an appearance for Starter and its new line of products at Walmart in Arlington. “I agree I haven’t been this excited about a football season in a while. I think that is exciting.”
Never miss a local story.
What has Romo excited is the infusion of talent the Cowboys have added in the off-season through free agency and the draft, the improvement of the defense in the second year under coordinator Rob Ryan, the young talent the Cowboys have on both sides of the ball and the continued leadership of coach Jason Garrett.
“For a lot those reasons I think we are going to have the opportunity to be a good ball club this year,” Romo said.
