Could he have thrown to someone else, yep.. but I also bet that the D was bracketing both Miles and Witten.. cuz they know they have been killing them all day too. The best match up for us was on the outside, Romo took the shoot. I don't think it is a bad decision to try and take advantage of the best match up we have. You base your argument on the results. Just because the play didn't work out, doesn't make it a bad call or decision.
Disagree, that is the exact situation when you do not take your shot, you don't leave time for Eli to possibly win the game with a FG. That is beyond dumb.
A good coach thinks about those things.
