But Dallas needs to improve on offense too. Since option plays are things defenses are struggling to defend why isn't Dallas prioritizing these plays when they play offense? After all, Romo has scrambling ability.
whoa whoa whoa, Romo is a WONDERFUL scrambling quarterback, his ability to make guys miss **IN THE POCKET** is some of the most magical stuff I've ever seen. but he is NOT, nor has he ever been, a RUNNING quarterback. to be a running quarterback running an option at NFL speed, you need dominant athletes playing quarterback. The Mike Vick, RG3, Cam Newton guys.
In summary, Romo can ole a half blocked lumbering Defensive lineman, but he wont EVER be outrunning linebackers and safeties down the sideline.
Additionally. Romo is in his 30s, has already suffered multiple broken bones, and Kyle Orton is his backup. No bueno, mi amigo.
