The Dallas Cowboys haven’t won a Super Bowl in quite a while now, and they went from being one of the most dominant teams in the league to a running joke for their rivals.
Notably, a lot of that happened during the Tony Romo era, as the team often fell short of their goals for multiple reasons.
Some blame Jason Garrett’s terrible decision-making and clock management, others pointed the finger at Jerry Jones for the way he handled the team, and plenty of people also put the blame on Romo.
So, now that he’s been away from the league for several years, the retired quarterback told The Athletic that he’ll always regret not being able to deliver a Super Bowl for the city (via Ed Werder).
Tony Romo: “I wish I could have brought a Super Bowl to the Cowboys. That’s always going to be a regret that I wasn’t able to do that. But these things harden you.” https://t.co/KirkuvgnvT

Romo was a four-time Pro Bowler during his 13-year career.
The Cowboys gave him a chance after going undrafted out of Eastern Illinois, and he eventually worked his way up within the organization.
He was often a subject of debate, as some claimed he was much better than the numbers pointed out, while others believed the Cowboys would never be a serious contender with him on the team.
A back injury eventually left the door open for Dak Prescott to take over, and Romo had no choice but to walk away from the league without a championship ring.
Even so, he was only able to lead the Cowboys to the playoffs four times, posting a 2-4 postseason record with eight scores and two interceptions.NEXT: Analyst Says Jerry Jones Sent A Message To Dak Prescott With Lance Trade
