DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Cowboys offense is struggling to score points and their former quarterback has a suggestion as to why that's happening. 

Tony Romo joined The Ben and Skin Show on Wednesday and said the Cowboys need to find their identity because their offensive line isn't as good as it used to be.

"Offensively, you're just seeing a subtle drop-off from the offensive line. Through all the years, that's been a strength for the Cowboys for a while. When that isn't afforded to the football team you need to figure out what your strength is and how you're going to win football games and what's the formula," Romo said on 105.3 The Fan. "I feel like every team that's good in the NFL has something that separates them. This league is built for parity and if you don't have something that allows you to have an advantage, a significant one would be ideal, but if you don't, it's just really hard each and every week.

"One week, you're going against the best coach in the NFL. Another week it's Brady and then all of a sudden you're going against the number one ranked defense in the league... And so for Dallas, it's been that offensive line. And I feel like right now they still have very dynamic players there. But one guy who doesn't quite do his job makes everybody have to play faster. And right now Dallas is just having to play like the rest of the league and they have to do that for a while.

"It's been in a position where they were afforded four to six yards on first down running the ball, which is rare. And to just do that it can simplify the game and makes a lot of things easier. So I think right now you're finding that they're just their identity needs to almost be figured out."

Romo also talked about if he's healthy enough to play in the NFL, if he'll coach in the future, the Cowboys scheme and much more. Listen to the audio below.
