    Tony Romo calls preseason "invaluable"

    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks the NFL should a shorten the preseason and lengthen the regular season.

    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, however, has a different perspective.

    "It's really invaluable," Romo says of the preseason. "It's where you grow as a player; you learn what your weaknesses and strengths are. You can use those as a tool to get better."

    Romo's perspective is an important one to consider. Romo signed with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2003, and he didn't throw a pass in a regular-season game until 2006. The experience Romo got through four years of preseasons was a big part of what allowed him to eventually become a star, and if the preseason is cut in half, players like him will have fewer opportunities.

    And even now that he's a proven veteran, Romo says that in the preseason, "I'm always up for playing a lot." That's not a viewpoint we usually hear from NFL veterans about preseason games. But it's a viewpoint worth considering as the league moves toward cutting the preseason short.

    With a similar path as our current franchise QB, Philip Rivers may share similar sentiments. I'd love to hear from him.
