I think Romo does sometimes fall short in close games due to the fact that he doesn't have a rocket arm to whistle the ball into tight coverage,,, couple that with the fact that he rarely has solid pass protection and you've got an offense that has had trouble mounting a comeback with time running out,,, until this year oddly enough. There seems to be some extra Romo-magic getting dialed up.
Fair enough. One would think the consistent failure, regardless of culpability, would have the potential to creep up on a QB but if Romo is as cool under pressure as you say he is then good for you guys.
