Tony Romo has guaranteed a 2016 Super Bowl win. Romo said the Dallas Cowboys will “win a Super Bowl next year” during a recent award ceremony. The prediction is pretty bold, especially with the two-time defending NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks still standing in his way. As reported by ESPN, Romo was receiving the Nancy Lieberman Lifetime Achievement Award at the Dream Ball Gala in Dallas when he made the proclamation.
“I literally want to win it so bad for them, for the people around me who have helped me. They’ve allowed me to achieve my dreams and my goals. Without them, I’m not there, I promise you. I’m not where I’m at right now and I’m not going where I’m going. This award is very meaningful to me, mostly because I get to be associated with this and to be associated with Nancy. It’s incredible and I really appreciate you, and we’re going to win a Super Bowl next year. Thank you.”
During the 2014 NFL season, Tony Romo led the Dallas Cowboys to a 12-4 record, and an NFC East title. Dallas would beat the Detroit Lions in the first-round of the postseason, but lose to the Green Bay Packers in divisional playoffs. The loss was a bit controversial, with officials overturning a completion to Dez Bryant, and giving the Packers the ball toward the end of the game. Romo and his teammates were sent home with a lot to think about during the offseason.
As previously reported on the Inquisitr, the offseason has had Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys on the front of the sports page quite often. First the team had to figure out a contract with Dez Bryant, then they lost DeMarco Murray to the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency, and most recently, the team has been linked to Adrian Peterson. Cowboys trade rumors indicate that owner Jerry Jones would love to put Peterson in the backfield behind Romo. It might take a lot to convince the Minnesota Vikings to make that deal, but the interest seems genuine.
Most 2016 Super Bowl odds have the Dallas Cowboys ranked behind the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers (by a wide margin) to take home the trophy. It means, that even with a bold prediction by quarterback Tony Romo, the Cowboys have a lot of work to do during the upcoming NFL season. That includes playing two really tough games against an improved Philadelphia Eagles team before the postseason even rolls around.
