I wanted Red dead because of that call and it turned out to be Romo ???!!!!
I've had sympathy for Romo till this point with our o-line and dumb receivers. But to have a veteran quarterback make that decision in that situation makes Romo a huge part of the problem. Moronic idiot decision that probably cost us the game.
Again, there is nothing wrong with passing on 3rd and 1...there were plenty of guys in the pattern, and I'm sure at least someone ran a 1-2 yard pattern...Romo is the one who saw man-press coverage with Prince and decided without looking anywhere else to throw to the end zone. The calls from the sideline don't dictate where the QB decides to look and throw. They are plays designed to get the yardage needed. After that, it is up to the players on the field.
