Cowboys QB Tony Romo exceeding expectations at OTAs
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/11/15) Cowboys quarterbacks Tony Romo has been a full participant during organized team activities, which the team was not anticipating, reports The Dallas Morning News.
"He has way exceeded expectations," Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. "We really didn't anticipate him to practice three days in a row and he hasn't missed anything. He's taking the amount of reps he's supposed to take and he's throwing the ball with a lot of authority and really engaged with the guys."
Romo has undergone back surgeries during the last two years, but he said the back is no longer an issue.
"It's been good," Romo said. "I've been building the base up, continuing to get stronger each week. I've just been excited about how it has been going and the progression."
Cowboys' Tony Romo felt like Fred Flintstone with injured back
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is thrilled to be at a stage where he feels like he has full control over his body.
While dealing with a nerve issue in his back over the past couple of years, that wasn't the case. As Romo described during an interview on Dallas radio station KTCK-AM, via the Dallas Morning News, the nerve injury made things incredibly difficult.
"So, what happens is you just lose strength – you’re almost like Fred Flinstone in that you’re trying to run and get the car going, but it’s really not going," Romo said. "You say go and the nerve doesn’t send the signal to tell you to go ... It’s like starting over, like when you’re a child and you just want to say go, push off, fire, and you’re legs won’t. And that just comes from working day in and day out, over and over and over again. And now, it happens a lot faster, it’s a lot longer periods of time I’m able to maintain the strength before you get fatigued, and that wasn’t the case at the start of last football season."
Early last season it seemed Romo played a bit cautious. As the season played out, he looked the part of a healed quarterback, outside of dealing with a pair of broken ribs later in the year. He finished the 2014 regular season with 3,705 yards and 34 touchdowns in 15 starts. Of course, passing numbers weren't where they normally are due to the dominant running game the Cowboys possessed.
Romo's back will likely never be 100 percent, he said. But from where it was, progress has been made.
"I think when you have back surgery you’ll always have something," Romo said. "It’s not like other injuries where you rehab, and then it’s, ‘Hey, that part’s stronger than it used to be.’"
Cowboys QB Tony Romo getting stronger after back surgeries
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/5/15) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn't a regular participant during offseason organized team activities. He's usually taking it slow because of his past history with back surgeries.
This offseason, though, Romo has been present for all practices as he says he continues to improve and get stronger, per The Dallas Morning News.
“The further I get away from the surgery the stronger I get in a lot of areas,’’ Romo said. “Now I need to continue. I’m working as hard as I can to ensure that I’m strengthening the areas that I need to be at my best and right now.
“It’s just been a good start in the offseason. I’ve been able to continue to build and grow. I’ll give credit to the training staff and the weight room staff . We’ve had a great process of figuring out how to continue to get stronger in the offseason, which I haven’t been able to do in the last few years, and that’s been as exciting as anything just to be able to get back into building that and the football stuff is just showing that on the other end.’’
Romo passed for 3,705 yards and 34 touchdowns last season.
Healthy QB Tony Romo providing optimism for Cowboys
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) A Tony Romo ahead of the game is a rather scary thought for NFL defenses. But such is the case for the Cowboys quarterback, who for the first time in three years is healthy at this point in the offseason.
In 2013, he was recovering from the removal of cyst. Last year he was battling back from a discectomy. But he's fine now and is performing quite well.
"It's been great," Romo told ESPN. "I think just to be able to kind of have an offseason. You're always rehabbing, but at the same time, I'm kind of able to build during this offseason. It's exciting really."
It's more exciting considering he is coming off his finest year, which featured a league-best completion percentage (69.9) and passer rating (113.2) with 34 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.
In training camp he never practiced more than two straight days, then sat out every Wednesday during the regular season. It remains to be seen if a healthy offseason translates into even better production for the 35-year-old Romo in 2015. The team will be careful in regard to his health.
"Tony's obviously further along," Jason Garrett said. "He didn't have an offseason surgery, so he was able to get a lot more things in our offseason program up to this point. ... You want to make sure you monitor him. ... He's handled everything we've asked him to do to this point really well."
Cowboys' Tony Romo says offensive line can extend his career
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/9/15) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo didn't need back surgery this offseason, the first time in three years he's avoided a procedure.
The 35-year-old Romo credits the team's improved defensive line, which limited the number of hits on him last year and could help prolong his career.
"When you have a good offensive line like we do, the thought definitely crosses your mind to ensure you do everything possible to play longer than maybe what you had envisioned," Romo said, per NFL.com. "We’ll reassess that in a few years. My wife will tell you, I’m talking a little more long term than I maybe had been. So we’ll see."
|Even though DeMarco Murray helped carry the Cowboys offense in 2014, quarterback Tony Romo was still an excellent Fantasy quarterback. He finished as the No. 9 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues, and he's been a top-10 option each of the past four years. He passed for 3,705 yards, 34 touchdowns and nine interceptions, and his passing touchdowns were the second-best total of his career and the interceptions matched his career low. The Cowboys don't have Murray this season since he signed as a free agent with Philadelphia, so more responsibility could belong to Romo. He has a dominant receiving corps led by Dez Bryant, and Romo continues to prove his ability with at least 20 Fantasy points in 10 games in 2014. We like him as a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback, and he should again finish as a Top 10 option when healthy. He's a great quarterback to wait on with a mid-round pick in all leagues.
