'Boys Hail Mary duo praise Romo-Austin

By Matt Mosley - NFC East - Blog

If you somehow missed it earlier, take some time to read reporter Tim MacMahon's excellent story about how Roger Staubach and Drew Pearson admire the Cowboys' Tony Romo and Miles Austin. I hate to bring it up since Vikings fans have been stopping by the blog this week, but Staubach and Pearson teamed up for one of the most famous plays in NFL history 35 years ago. (And no, Pearson did not push off!) Here's a great quote from Staubach about Romo:

"Through thick and thin, he's still been one heck of a quarterback," Staubach said. "When he's out there on the field, I just always feel that he's going to find a way to win the game. This is the first time I've felt that way about a Cowboy quarterback since Troy Aikman."

With all apologies to Quincy Carter and Drew Bledsoe, I think Staubach might be onto something.
