Romo lives and dies by trying to do too much , A couple of possessions back he took a 15 yard sack which was another dumb play , instead of running backwards and do some thing why can't he take a couple of steps to the side and throw away the ball ? I can't understand , may be by making big plays by evading would be sackers he has a foolish confidence .
I still can't overcome the fact , everyone knows that D is running on fumes and it can hold barely and to win this game offense had to fire on all cylinders , still the offense game plan was so bad and skins with their def game plan really out-coached us. No answer for their all-out blitzing all game long.
Offense had to play good that means Romo has to play good but he was off-game and was off in the throws and throwing interceptions. Such a shame, when you expect the Franchise QB to be the savior , he turns into a goat. I respect Romo's abilities , stats etc but he is not a SB winning QB , at least he won't be unless he has enough offense and defense talent around him and he didn't need to win games by himself , just manage the game, like RG3 did y'day.
