The head coach of Dallas Cowboys, Jason Garrett has declared full faith in quarterback Tony Romo, who is showing no signs of slowing down his turbulent form. Garrett might be supporting Romo in front of the media but it is understood that this is just another way of injecting confidence into Romo.

Garrett told media in his press conference that although Romo had priced Cowboys with some costly turnovers resulting in two losses, he knew Romo could make amends when he picked back his form. Garrett also said that Romo has been under immense pressure this season, but despite it he has been impressive.

"There is absolutely no issue with my trust level with Tony Romo," Garrett said. "Anybody who has followed this team understands the trust I have in him. If you look at his season so far he has shown he can play really well in the NFL like he has shown over the last four and half years. We believe strongly in him. I believe strongly in him and we are going to keep going forward."

On the other hand Romo has also shown belief in Garrett and thanked him for all the support. Romo stated that winning and losing was part of the game but staying true to hope and belief is what turns game into history.

"That's just what happens after a game whether you win or lose," Romo said. "There has to be some storyline and you could ask Jason you could ask me. We study a lot of certain situations at the end of the games and anybody that was watching the game last week knew our defense played really outstanding football for the entire second half. I didn't envision their offense going down to score a touchdown either at the time. It's easy to second guess but not me and Jason, we're going to continue to go forward and have a great relationship. He's a great coach. We're lucky to have him."

Romo has once again been chosen to lead the Cowboys against the St. Louis Rams this Sunday. The fractured rib Romo suffered in Week 2 is still bothering the quarterback but Romo is intent on toughening it out. Romo is wearing a protective vest and taking a pain-killing injection before each game.

"They're getting better," Romo said. "Hopefully in a couple of weeks, they'll be all the way healed. I think we've got the shot one more week hopefully and then we're done. We'll see. That's what they're telling me."
