IRVING, Texas -- A few Cowboys players were still a bit wide-eyed when they walked off the field from organized team activities Monday afternoon. It's not every day that Hall of Famer Roger Staubach stops by for a little pep talk. No pressure, but Staubach drew comparisons to the '71 team that broke through to win a Super Bowl.
"This is a really, really good football team and they have the capability," Staubach said of the 2010 Cowboys. "There are probably five or six teams in the NFL that can win it all. This is one of them. They can do it.
"It's a matter of giving that little extra and fighting, and I think they have that attitude, too. The way it transpired at the end of the year in the Minnesota game was rough, but they really were a team at the end of the year, and I think they're even better this year."
Staubach also took some time to discuss U.S. Open hopeful Tony Romo.
"I'm a big Tony Romo fan," Staubach said. "You've got that feeling. There's a few quarterbacks that when they hit the field, you know something good is going to happen. When Troy was here, I knew it. I just felt it. I feel the same way about Tony. When he's on that field, good things are going to happen."
