But as we've seen time and time again, this is now a passing league. And you do have a rookie QB, playing in his first really high-pressure game (unless the Bears and Vikings lose of course!). Yes, we all know Romo is a total choker (heavy sarcasm), but he does have skins on the wall (no pun intended). You cannot understate the value of that in a game like this.
Basically, it comes down to this. In a game where defenses are going to be stretched to the limit, in Romo I trust. I mean, 20 tds and just 2 interceptions in the last two Decembers combined. The guy is at his best this time of year, despite what the idiot media types would have you believe.
Good points...I know RGIII is still a rookie but he's stepped up during this 6 game win streak, too. 5 INTs for the whole season.
As for our pass defense, no comment lol. I almost want Haslett to just say **** it and play lots of man press coverage and zone blitzes from different LBs and members of the secondary. I know Romo would burn us but at least we'd have a chance for some sacks, and the damage would be done faster and we could get the ball back on offense.
If we force any punts on defense I'm going to celebrate each time...lol
