Dave Boling of The News Tribune wasted little time in getting to the meat of the issue with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
His first question during the conference call was Romo’s bobbled snap on a field goal on short field goal late in the 2006 NFC wild card game, allowing Seattle to take over on downs and sneak away with a victory at home.
So how about that fumble Tony?
“Shoot, it feels like I was 10 years old back then,” he laughed.
“Football is a great game and it teaches you a lot of lessons,” Romo went on. “Your ability as a player to interact with other people, how to develop into a leadership role, how to work with others, and how to improve.
“There are million different things that you learn that are life lessons in a lot of ways and going through the adverse situations that you go through in football can help build character, help learn the process that it takes to get better and how to improve as a football team. I think that’s just one of those situations where you took it as it was, a disappointing loss, which was very tough at the time. What you do is you get better.”
