He threw a bad pass to a wide open Dez. Dez still caught it for 55 yards, but it should have been an easy TD since he was so wide open. On the very next play, he misses Witten by a mile and Witten was open and that would have been another first down. Instead of making a TD on that drive, we come away with a FG.
He misses Hanna who was wide open, by a mile underneath. He missed Austin by a mile a few times and as Aikman said 'those weren't even close.'
I think his confidence is shaken a little. If he throws a TD like the one to Charles Tillman, he gets blamed for it. If JPP gets lucky and makes a great play, Romo gets the blame. But he has not been very accurate this year. He needs help, but I think we are making a bad move if we think that:
a) he'll stay perfectly healthy in the next 3 years
b) his skills won't decline in the next 3 years.
I think we have a possibly good situation here.
We could draft a QB in the 2nd round next year. Change up the offense scheme and get a different O-Coordinator. Romo should be able to pick up the new offense rather quickly, he's smart and a veteran. The rookie QB will be in an offense that should be suited for him and he can learn under one O-Coordinator.
Give the rookie 2-3 years to learn and then he can be ready for when we are done with Romo.
My issue here is I just get the feeling that we'll never look ahead and we will blow the opportunity to make a fairly seamless transition to a new offense and a new QB.
