I wanted Red dead because of that call and it turned out to be Romo ???!!!!
I've had sympathy for Romo till this point with our o-line and dumb receivers. But to have a veteran quarterback make that decision in that situation makes Romo a huge part of the problem. Moronic idiot decision that probably cost us the game.
You know why he went to KO? Because KO was the first read, Miles Austin was way down the line. If you notice, like I stated in another thread, the WR right to the left of KO draws the safety over to the middle. Romo also looks over the middle to draw the safety away from KO.
KO was the very first option in the play. They got the single man coverage and Romo put the ball in a pretty good place, i.e. where KO could get a hand on it. But KO can't beat my grandmother in single coverage, besides the fact the CB played it pretty well.
The fact that the pass play given to Romo to call, with KO running that route is stupid. The fact that there were 2 other times to run, and they didn't that was stupid.
Yes, Romo can check out of a run play, but the pass play he is given is also from the coach.
