    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was direct when asked whether Tony Romo has too much latitude regarding the offense.

    "No I don't," Jones said Tuesday morning during his twice-a-week radio show on 105.3 The Fan Dallas-Ft. Worth. "No, not at all."

    The question was posed to Jones because Romo threw two fourth-quarter interceptions in Sunday's 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers, who rallied from a 23-point halftime deficit.

    Jones maintained that Romo has to "take risks" with the ball in order to help Dallas (7-7) remain in the playoff hunt.

    "When it basically has to unfold for him out there, the defense gets out of their structure, we get out of our structure on pass routes," Jones said. "All of a sudden, you're into a little more sandlot-type football. In doing so, there's more risk that's involved. Make no mistake about it: With where we are with our personnel, we're going to have to take risks."
