If you have a problem with the pass selection, that's fine, that's your opinion. But for the people who are complaining about if we would've scored we would've left Eli with too much time on the clock. Let me ask you this, isn't that a much better problem to have then to not score at all? Even if we pick up the first down there is NO guarantee that we end up scoring. If anything the play call is kind of smart. You have a situation where the defense is probably not expecting a ball in the end zone. They took a shot and missed. It happens. To blame anyone is trivial, and you guys really need to relax. Blaming Romo for this isn't gonna change anything. For all the throws he missed, he still stormed us back.

Good teams play situational football and consider everything involved at any given moment. Of course scoring is ultimately the most important thing, but at 2nd and 1 already at the 19, we were in the PERFECT situation to continue to burn clock and move more methodically down the field. If it had been 2nd and 12 or something, no one would be complaining.
Literally everything about that situation dictated run, and it wasn't called, by Garrett or Romo or whoever. It was bad football, and it cost us AGAIN.
