Tony Romo Says Cowboys Will Win Super Bowl in 2015
You can’t say Tony Romo isn’t bold. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback made waves recently upon receiving the Nancy Lieberman Lifetime Achievement award, saying, “We’re going to win a Super Bowl next year”.
Romo probably has reason to be a little confident, as Dallas is coming off of a strong 12-4 season and Romo himself had one of his most efficient seasons ever. The Cowboys even advanced to the second round after beating the Detroit Lions at home, and had it not been for a questionable “drop” call on a Dez Bryant catch, his ‘Boys may have upset the Green Bay Packers in round two. From there, who knows how far Dallas may have gone?
It’s clear Romo has an idea, and has stamped his approval on this year’s team making a run to the league’s final game of the year.
It’s not impossible for Romo to make good on his suggestion (or guarantee?), but the odds may have taken a bit of a hit in free agency, when the Cowboys opted not to hold onto stud running back, DeMarco Murray.
Dallas has Romo, a top flight passing attack and arguably the league’s top offensive line, but what they don’t have is a proven rusher for their offense or a defense they can truly trust just yet.
Instead of Murray, all they have is the often injured Darren McFadden and the hope that they’ll see the right running back prospect slide to them in the draft. Beyond the offense, there are also questions on an average defense that probably only looked mediocre a year ago due to the offense holding onto the ball so long.
It all could circle back to losing Murray. Then again, the Cowboys could have figured out they didn’t need Murray. With an offensive line as stout as theirs, what may be perceived as foolish could be smart, if they can just throw anyone behind their o-line and continue to be a dominant, run-based offense.
Regardless of whether or not the public buys Dallas as a legit Super Bowl contender isn’t the point. They may have been one a year ago and if they make the right moves before week one, they very well could be again in 2015. And if it means anything, Romo sure believes they already are.
