Mat McBriar has to be prepare for one of the most electric return men in the game this weekend.
Jones supports Romo
Of course that was before he had two fourth-quarter turnovers that ultimately led to the Cowboys' demise.
Jones said the Cowboys remain firmly behind Romo and will be for the foreseeable future.
"He's a winner," Jones said. "We are going to rise and fall based on what Tony Romo's about over the next several years, and I'm excited about that. We've got someone here that can, if we can get some other things together, we can have a team that gets us in position to have a shot. This isn't to pat him on the back or make him try to play better. I just want everyone to know how much confidence we have in his ability to win ballgames for us. He's one of the two or three best assets that we've got to get where we want to go."
He admitted that Romo's confidence can be his undoing sometimes, causing him to take a risk like he did in throwing the game-turning interception rather than settling for the safe play.
But Jones said the Cowboys remain confident on Romo's ability to win games because of his increased knowledge and command of the game.
"I want everybody to know how much confidence we have in his ability to win games for us," Jones said. "He is one of the best assets we have to get us where we want to go.
"He has outstanding command of the game. He is very involved in what we do on offense. When you got somebody that can master it you got something special. He is close. Don't drop Romo, he's going to be our ticket."
