ROMO ONLY THINKS ABOUT THE CHAMPIONSHIP
Wed, 18 Apr 2012 05:33 PM EDT

Tony Romo, reconizing that quarterbacks are “defined” by Super Bowl titles, claimed he won’t be happy with his career till he wins one. And Romo thinks the Cowboys, fresh off signing the biggest free-agent class of Jerry Jones’ ownership tenure, have taken major steps to put the team in position to confront after missing the playoffs for the 2nd uninterrupted season.

Jones, also the team’s GM, considered the Cowboys to be contenders last season until they lost to the resultant Super Bowl champ NY Giants in the New Year’s Day season finale with the NFC East title at stake. Basketball scores

“It’s about time that we go to that next step and I believe our team will be prepared for that,” Romo recounted.

Romo, a 3-time Pro Bowler, had potentially the best individual season of his career last year, throwing for 4,184 yards and 31 touchdowns despite playing a few weeks with broken ribs. However, the Cowboys crumbled down the stretch after putting themselves in the driving seat of the division, losing 4 of their final 5 games, including 2 losses to the Giants.

Romo, who turns 32-year-old this month, is in a lot of ways one of the NFL’s real achievement stories. He was an undrafted free agent out of Division I-AA Eastern Illinois who established himself as the franchise quarterback for 1 of the top-profile teams in sports, following in the steps of Hall of Famers Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman.

Yet, at this point, Romo’s career is recognized as much, if not more, for his mess ups as his achievements. He has only 1 playoff victory, and Romo’s most memorable moments have been upsetting season finales: the playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks sealed by his botched hold on a field goal, losing to the Giants as a No. 1 seed in the 2007 playoffs, a 44-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008 with a playoff berth on the line and the loss to the Giants in last years finale.

Romo claimed he wants to be remembered as a player who reached each bit of his potential.

“And when I say that,” Romo recounted, “I would like to think that the bar is pretty high and I can get to a level that’s very high.”

The Super Bowl is the standard for an organization that has 5 Lombardi Trophies. Romo realizes that, asserting the opportunity to compete for a championship is the driving force that incentivizes him.

“The Super Bowl is definitely the most important team achievement, and also as a quarterback, it is what we’re defined as,” Romo said. “I believe for me that will be the one obvious (thing) that you play the game for. All the hours and the sweat and the time that you do and those tough moments when I’m alone doing what I do, that’s what you concentrate on.

“You don’t rest till you are feeling that achievement. For me, that’s always going to be there. That’s going to be a very singular-driven focus. That’s the way that I am, and that’s the way it’s going to be until that occurs. That is the way I would like to be remembered.”
