Aikman's Take on Romo

Interesting to hear what he said on Irvin's show today.

He had clearly decided that the biggest issue with the current Cowboys group is the team chemistry. He said he believes the "team does not enjoy playing football together" and that is what is keeping them from reaching their full potential.  

He was also surprised at the allegations about Romo's work habits (or lack thereof), but would not dismiss them because he suggested that where there is smoke, there is fire. He praised Romo's skills and competitive fire, but says the Cowboys' failures in December are partly his fault and that he hasn't fully grasped what being the QB of the Dallas Cowboys is all about, citing the Cabo trip as a big gaffe. He suggested that Tony START worrying about perception, rather than always brushing it off.

He suggested that Romo's teammates might not be so happy with his apparent nonchalance about losing the Philly game in epic fashion. Aikman wondered if Tony is getting a bit cynical and hardened from the adversity he has faced, but that things may have happened too quickly for Romo in that his rise from obscurity to superstardom left him mentally unprepared.

Aikman, in his usual humble style, said he too made mistakes in terms of high profile dating. But he said Romo has taken a different angle on this stuff, which led him to reaffirm what we all know; WINNING CURES EVERYTHING.

And, in the end, isn't that the yardstick that Tony will be measured by? If the team can't progress next year on offense, Romo will bear much more of the blame than he has thus far. And, as I have said, THIS is the critical off season for Romo. If he falters next year, the wheels will come off and the Jones boys will go looking to supplant him. I hope he delivers.
