Caleb Hanie Looking “Romoesqe” In Mini-Camp
Caleb Hanie was looking a bit heavier, but moved like a starting QB in the huddle today. According to ESPN, that’s when Jason Garret took the faux-Hanie out of the huddle and made him put on his own jersey, #9.
Tony Romo is reportedly “miles ahead of last year” and isn’t looking at all like the wincing warrior he was through training camp in 2013. The Cowboys brain trust has a game plan, and letting Romo go full tilt in mini-camp is not on the agenda as Jason Garrett made clear.
I watched Romo sit during team stretches, barely able to touch his toes in the 2013 camp. Romo was fragile. A gamer, he seemed to approach each practice with a wary eye. That (obviously) doesn’t seem to be the case in 2014. Romo answered questions on ESPN with a glint in his eye, a rakish grin and conspiratorial giggle with Jason Garrett not far off that description when responding to questions on the subject during his press conference.
Romo wants in now. The Cowboys want him to be fully healed and are using the extra snaps to increase their knowledge of backup QB Weeden’s skill set. It’s a win-win situation for Dallas and Jerry Jones seems well aware of this as he echoed previous sentiment with his own acknowledgments and wry humor.
Romo will be ready for 2014. He will be playing behind the best offensive line in years and possibly of his career. Arrow is pointing up. It needs to.
