Cowboys' season hinges on QB's ability to find another gear during brutal stretch
By Calvin Watkins |
Forget about last Monday's five-interception game and the stagnant offense for a moment. The Dallas Cowboys' next five weeks rest on the shoulders of quarterback Tony Romo.
Tony Romo needs to put his last performance behind him and focus on a difficult five-week stretch that begins next Sunday in Baltimore.
It's not about Romo trying to do too much, because he is and should be given credit for trying to make plays within a struggling offense. But the NFL is about results, and Romo's are not good right now.
Starting Sunday in Baltimore, Romo has to play better than his counterpart at quarterback. He can't afford to be outplayed again, as he was by the Chicago Bears' Jay Cutler that Monday night in Arlington.
If he is, then this season for the Cowboys will become lost.
