Romo needs a running game and he would be very effective. Trying to ask him to do it himself won't get it done. I look at Romo like I look at Dan Fouts. A QB thats good enough to put up numbers and win some games but is a heart breaker come crunch time. If those late 70's/early 80's San Diego teams had somewhat of a defence and a halfway decent running game they would have won the big one.
BS. Rodgers, Brady, Manning, Roethlisberger, Warner with Arizona, Brees didn't need much of running game to be successful. You people are coming up with every excuse in the book for Romo right now. He needs a running game, he needs an oline, he needs a defense, he needs this he needs a punter that kicks it inside the 10, he needs that, he needs a everything freaking handed to him on a silver platter to not screwup. Got it.
