IRVING Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the No. 1 challenge he faces when it comes to the future of his team is finding a replacement for quarterback Tony Romo.
However, that time is not now _ at least not according to Jones, nor his injured franchise quarterback, who adds that he will help the Cowboys find a new quarterback when the time comes.
Jones knows this because of a recent four-hour conversation he had with Romo about quarterbacks.
"You’ll appreciate this, Romo, Tony, in real genuineness said we’re not ready for the quarterback," Jones said on his radio show on 105.3 FM Friday morning. "And he doesn’t look sheepish when he says it, but when we are don’t worry about it, I’ll find him for you. And by the way, he’ll give you, and I’ve spent in one case recently about four hours with him going over all the things he’d look for in a college quarterback as far as one for the future. So I give him a lot of credence, I really do, unbelievable as to how he’s studied it."
Romo fractured his left collarbone in Week 2 against Philadelphia. The Cowboys (2-5) have lost all five games without him.
