Josh Johnson = Tony Romo

October 2nd, 2009

The troops are rallying around Josh Johnson, so reports Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. In fact, Johnson’s teammates suggest the Bucs won’t miss a beat with Johnson, though that may not be such a good thing.

“I don’t feel like this was a move made out of desperation, and I don’t feel like it was a move that abandons anything, because I’ve been here with Josh and I feel he’s capable of doing anything,” receiver Antonio Bryant said.

“I was watching some film from last year and I was looking at some highlights of the Cowboys game and I thought to myself, ‘Josh Johnson reminds me a lot of Tony Romo.’

“What I mean is that, just like Romo, he always had quarterbacks ahead of him and he had to wait his turn. He had to sit there and master that system, and so he learned how to be a professional.”

Of course, Joe is confident that if Johnson could pull some of the top shelf talent that Romo has, Johnson would be quite content with such an analogy.

Joe certainly would.
