When you are consistently IN 3rd down situations you will occasionally fail to make them. Whether that is by drop, poor running or poor blocking it will happen.
This offense used to wear big boy pants and go pick up 10 yards a play.
But Garrett got scared of Romo making mistakes and dialed everything in. Only problem with that is we can't win that way. We aren't one of those execution teams that never trips up. No, we have penalties and drops and missed blocks. So we have to plan for that and go make plays to get on the board. The draws on 1 and 20 are supposed to be reserved for when we have big leads.
We didn't even average 2 points per possession. That is dreadful offense.
