Romo Preaches Same Message About Stats

Every year it seems Tony Romo gets asks similar questions. Every year he gives the same answers.

Romo knows only quarterbacks and head coaches have records next to their names. He knows he is judged by the success on the field, and at this point, it's all about the postseason success.

Sure, Romo is 47-30 in the regular season, but he's only 1-3 in the playoffs. And with that, it's easy for his critics to wonder how he performs in the clutch.

Now, Romo did enjoy one of his best statistical season of his career last season, with a career-best 102.5 QB rating, with 31 touchdowns and only 10 interceptions.

But Romo knows the 8-8 record and missing the playoffs, is the biggest factor of last season, or any season.

"Well, it's not about statistics. It's about winning," Romo said. "That's what he story is going to be written when it's all said and done. It's going to come down to whether we won or lost. That's why you practice the way we do. That's why you're out there doing the stuff we're doing, so that we can put our best foot forward and try to win. The articles are going to always be about winning and losing and that's what the fans and players and all of us want to see. It doesn't matter about any of the other stuff."
