"I kind of got a taste of it at the OTAs [organized team activities], but it's a little bit different when you get to camp where the practices are longer", Elliott said. "I have played with him so much, it's really not if the mannerisms have changed". I feel that way again this year.
While Dallas has a great starting quarterback in Romo, arguably the best offensive line in football, and strong receiving targets like wide receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten, even as a rookie Elliott was supposedly going to be a huge part of the Cowboys' overall success this season. "You know what you expect out of yourself and then you have to go on and do it", said Romo. "It's why you do everything you can to be at your best", said Romo. There have been four days of practices with the last two being in full pads. Still, if we're going into the icky drudgery of judging a man's appearance and fitness based on one photo, there looks to be a hint of extra weight there.
In his career, Romo has thrown for 34,154 yards with 247 touchdowns and 117 interceptions and owns virtually every franchise passing record that matters. He loves this game.
Romo now has the third highest passer rating in National Football League history. The Dallas Cowboys player also denied living with the woman who alleged the case who was identified as Tiffany Thompson. "I'm just looking forward to (Monday), ready to get better".
NOTES: The Cowboys signed LB James Morris of Iowa after LB Darius Eubanks was released.
This situation hasn't seemed to bother Elliott in his first training camp, either. Each year, he adds something, whether it's a subtle hitch to make his pump fake more effective or widening his feet 2 inches when he sets to throw so he can generate more power. "He's so meticulous about the fundamentals".
