Let that marinate.
Actually it was Julius Jones in 2006. But this is what the team needs to be successful on offense. Romo is more than capable and he would excel if he had the Seahawks, Redskins, 49ers, Vikings running games. Can you imagine if we had a good running game?
But is Garrett really committed to doing this? Even in the game against the Skins, Romo threw it 40 times.
