Receivers are dropping balls on other teams, olines are horrible on other teams, RB's are horrible on other teams, defenses aren't getting stops on third downs on other teams...yet, these teams are and can be successful. Romo doesn't deserve all the blame but people constantly make excuses for him as if he's untouchable and one of the main culprits are the oline. Our o-line is not that bad and has actually gotten alot better since the beginning of the season.
Lemme 'splain it. You put Arizona's QB behind our offensive line, and we'd have 10x more sacks. Romo is masterful at eluding pressure, and taking any play and making it into a school yard ad lib to make something out of nothing.
For example, look at our line in 2006 with Bledsoe behind it versus the elusive Romo. Our sacks per attempts were very different.
Romo makes our crappy line look average. Someone like Eli, Peyton, or Brady would be on IR behind our line.
