Cowboys' Stephen Jones: It's our family's fault Romo hasn't won title
Dallas Cowboy executive vice president Stephen Jones said on KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan on Wednesday morning that his family is to blame for quarterback Tony Romo never winning a Super Bowl, according to Fox Sports' Mark Lane.
Romo, 34, has been the team's starter since 2006, but has won just one playoff game, a win over the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009.
Jones, the son of team owner and general manager Jerry Jones, said the front office needs to give Romo more talent to work with.
"You know, certainly that doesn't sit in Tony's lap," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said on KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan Wednesday morning.
"That sits in our lap: Jerry and our family's lap in terms of the organization. We have to, you know, do better at putting people around [Romo]."
In nine games this season, Romo has completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 2,244 yards, 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. He missed the team's Week 9 loss against the Arizona Cardinals after fracturing two small bones in his back. Romo returned in Week 10 to lead the Cowboys past the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.
The Cowboys offense is No. 6 in yards and No. 8 in points this season. Running back DeMarco Murray leads the league with 1,233 rushing yards and also has seven touchdowns on the ground.
Dallas is 7-3 on the season and in second place in the NFC East.
The Cowboys are idle this week. They play the New York Giants on Nov. 23.
