Cowboys believe they can win Super Bowl with Tony Romo

National Football Post

Some may question the $108 million, six-year contract the Dallas Cowboys have given Tony Romo.

But the Cowboys believe in the quarterback – that is why he got the deal that includes $55 million guaranteed. Ultimately, they are the only ones that matter.

Absolutely, we feel that we can win a championship with Tony," Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones told Jarrett Bell of USA . “We wouldn't be doing all of this if we didn't think we could win with him.”

Romo has won just one playoff game since becoming the team’s quarterback midway through the 2006 season. But he has a 55-38 record even though he is 17-21 over the past three seasons. Dallas needs to rebuild its offensive line to improve Romo’s chances for success. Th3 32-year-old – and he turns 33 next month – believes the team is on the verge of turning the corner.

“This is an organization that always gives us a chance to win, and that is always the main focus here," Romo said in a statement, according to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We haven't had the type of success that we have all wanted the last few years, but I do know that we are on the verge of doing that. I have been around good teams and bad teams and our team is about to take that next step with a lot of things that are taking shape around Valley Ranch. Today just further instills that and I am excited about our team and the direction we are headed.
 

"This football team that we have is a good team and with all the people we have coming back and the things we are doing behind the scenes, it will make us a very difficult ball club to beat. I am excited that ownership and the organization believes in me to get this job done. Our goal is the Super Bowl, and I am determined and honored to be the guy in this position to help our team do that."

Only time will tell if the Cowboys are going to get what they expect out of their investment.
