The main thing I'm seeing is that the offense is out of sync. Romo is seeing the field differently from the receivers. The receivers aren't making the most of their opportunities (ie: Drops). And the penalties... All the f'ing penalties.
Yes, the line could give romo more time. Yes, romo is getting hit all the time.
That said, the penalties & drops are killing drives, and the miscues on offense where Romo expects receivers to go one way and they actually go another way, those are what are killing drives.
In spite of our woes on the offensive line, we still have tons of opportunities to move the chains & score touchdowns. This team just isn't executing, and THAT is the problem.
I rewatched the game and most of our inconsistencies and pre snap penalties was because Romo was doing an audible and changing the plays before the snap.
This to me IMO is because the defense knows what were going to run thus Romo having to change the play to counter the defense. Know if our offense wasn't so predictable and we carried on with a play that Romo was comfortable with, there would be no audible or switch and we can run the play smoothly.
