Romo: ‘We’re going to have a good offense, period’

“So we’re doing some good things,” he said. “But scoring touchdowns obviously helps a lot and matters. From a confidence standpoint, there’s no question we need to get in the end zone. And we will.”

Garrett was so upset with the offense Sunday that he made them go through an extra round of practice after their second session. They’ve been crisp in the two workouts since, including while in pads Tuesday.

Part of the problem Sunday might’ve been Romo playing through his illness.

“You need these days,” he said. “So you come out here and fight through it a little bit and you’ll be fine.”

Williams has been here 1 1/2 seasons without developing a strong on-field relationship. It’s a touchy subject because of how much money Williams makes and how much the Cowboys gave up to get him.

If Williams doesn’t have big numbers, he probably won’t be back next season. The clock could be ticking already because of the high hopes for Bryant, who is eager to return from a high ankle sprain but is being stalled by management concerned about the risk of a setback. Talk of him playing two preseason games has tilted toward the caution of keeping him out til the opener.

Whenever he’s back, Romo will be ready to continue breaking him in.

“He’s got good instincts,” Romo said. “He’s got a natural way about running the routes and being in position. He’s still got some stuff to learn that we’ve got to get through, but he’s coming along. … He had a lot of time, he had a lot of work in, and he corrected a lot of mistakes pretty quickly there. But there are still things we’re going to continue to work on.”

Romo came off the practice field having already heard the news of Brett Favre’s likely return to the Vikings. He jokingly said he was taking back all the nice things he said a few weeks ago when Favre was thought not to be returning.

“He’s terrible. I can’t believe he’s still playing. He’s got no ability left,” Romo said, laughing. “No, he’s a great player. It’s going to be fun to play those guys this year.”
