When Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo went down in a Week 2 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, it was painfully obvious how badly he wanted to get back on the field and give his team a chance to make a playoff push. When he finally got that chance, bad luck struck again, and he once again injured his shoulder.
Now, Romo comes out in 2016 looking to silence doubters by putting up big numbers and getting Dallas back in the postseason. So, should Cowboys fans be confident that he can stay healthy and produce at a high level. If you ask former Cowboy Darren Woodson, apparently so.
“That is not an overreaction. The one thing about the Cowboys right now, they all know the chips are all in on this offense. They brought in Ezekiel Elliott, they want to run the ball consistently. Dez Bryant is going to have some one-on-one opportunities on the outside. I look to see Romo throw the ball down the field, make big plays for this offense. I think this may be his best… and he’s biting at the bit, he’s been wanting to get back on the field since what happened last year. I think this will be one of his best seasons.”
Well, if you believe in what Woodson is putting out, then as a Cowboys fan, you’re probably pretty excited about 2016. Let’s be honest though, with running back Ezekiel Elliott now in town, and a healthy Dez Bryant, the Cowboys have plenty of reasons to be optimistic this season.
