Rise of Romo

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT

Ten years ago, Tony Romo was a wide-eyed free agent from Eastern Illinois. Hall of Fame offensive lineman Larry Allen took full advantage.

"Me and Witten were rookies, and Larry used to make us go get him the stuff he needed for different times," recalled Romo. "Whether it's a can of dip, or whatever it was. 'Hey Romo, you got that dip?' I'll go get it right now. He was great. He was always good to us."

My how times have changed. Now Romo is the seasoned vet. But instead of sending teammates on errands, he's helping them learn routes.

"I think there's a lot of detail stuff that I think is very important that I think you want to have the right way," said Romo. "So I'm just making sure that guys are doing that. Each day there's new stuff that comes up and we have to go over it and we make sure we get to it."

Romo is also making sure he gets in football shape after having cyst removal surgery in the offseason.

"Getting back into it and getting your body to stop, start, jolt quick and doing all that stuff football entails that's different than just working out and the conditioning aspect of it," Romo admitted. "It's been a great week."

And going up against a talented defense helps too.

"You can't duplicate that type of speed, competition," Romo said. "I mean there are special special players and that just allows you to have to work at a very fast level. And there will be a couple games like that, but not all 16. There will be three or four teams that can pass rush and have guys that can really give you trouble and those are the games you are going to have to play at that tempo to give your team a chance. And it's just nice to be able to do it  consistently out here."

As for Sunday night's Hall of Fame game vs. Miami, Romo is not sure if Jason Garrett will let him play, but he would sure love to.

"I still just want to play every time I suit up," Romo stated. "Every time I kinda step out there, your juices are flowing and you just want to compete. From that perspective, yes but I'll be - I'll be whatever the coaches want."
