Garrett: Cowboys are fortunate to have Romo

IRVING, Texas – Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett hasn’t lost any faith in Tony Romo.

Romo’s two interceptions in the final minutes during Sunday’s 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers just showed that Romo isn’t perfect, according to Garrett.

“I have great faith in Tony because I’ve been around him when he’s done so many great things for us in all quarters of the game to help us win a lot of ballgames around here,” Garrett said Wednesday. “There’s a tremendous amount of evidence of that. He’s not perfect. Nobody’s perfect.”

Romo is such a polarizing figure because of his critical mistakes in big moments. But the other side of the argument is that the Cowboys quarterback has led the team to a franchise-best 19 come-from-behind victories in the fourth quarter or overtime.

“I think you look at how he stacks up with a lot of other players in this league at that position and he stacks up very favorably,” Garrett said. “We’re fortunate to have him as our quarterback and excited to see him play this week.”
