Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo gave his assessment of the Denver Broncos secondary in anticipation of their matchup Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex.

Romo, who has thrown for 1,015 yards with eight touchdowns and one interception, said the Broncos’ secondary “do a great job with their hands.”

“They grab, they hold, they’ve almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they’re going to call the game close or not,” Romo said, via USA Today. “If they get called once or twice, that’s a good thing. But they’re all over guys as far as using the little tricks, I guess you could say, that good linebackers and good secondaries use when they’re playing man coverage.”

He's right, Broncos have the refs in their pockets. Don't be so judgmental, watch a game and see for yourself.

Does Romo always preemptively make excuses and whine before games?  That plus Jerry wants Bryant more involved, nothing like stating the obvious Jerry.

 Right, which is why they had 13 penalties for 132 yards in week 2... All part of their "master plan" and their ability to "buy" the refs....

Get real...
