The LB had a great angle on a direct pass, but his momentum would have left him far behind Murray if the ball had gone a little further upfield. I know Romo didn't have time to consider how to throw it, but it would have worked for a big gain. Just my way of saying that this game was lost on a matter of inches. (Ogletree forgetting to raise both arms to catch a pass also comes to mind as a cause, not to mention that high school coaches could have adapted better to the blitz).
yeah its really unfortunate that wasn't thrown better.
but if you look at his ints. Its a physical deficiency. Pressure in his face needs to be prevented so he can step up. Stronger qbs like roethlisberger and Eli can strong arm it. Romo can't.
it happened to brees, where having a solid pocket despite bad Ts let him move around. When Brady had pressure up the middle he failed too.
that's why the Steelers double a gap blitz is so effective.
