One thing consistent with Tony Romo throughout his entire NFL career is his horrible results in the clutch and in the most important games of his life.
I can think of just as many were he came up big, but you guys only recall the failures. The fact that you included that game back in the Jurrassic Period vs Seattle as a game where he choked as a QB
tells me all I need to know.
Even just last year in the do-or-die vs New York--we lost and were outclassed..had no chance really-- but he actually played well. What about the end of season win vs Philly? Or the playoff win vs Philly?
He deserves to take heat, but I just think people only choose to remember the bad stuff.
As for getting fooled during the blitz on that terrible pick vs Washington. That exact result , sadly, would have happened in week 3 just as it happened then. It had ZERO to do with the what game it was. It was just a bad decision where he got blitzed and instead of trying to throw it out of bounds, he thought he had his outlet to Murray in place...but he got fooled.
His flaw is he tries to do to much...almost the oppostie of choking, btw. He loves those situations and looked very confident in that drive and the preceeding TD drive.
