Rusher comes nearly unblocked straight up the middle in Romo's face as he throws the pass off his back foot for the pick.
And I like how you said Harris put us in position. LOL Romo threw two clutch passes. One on the TD and the other on the 2 point converstion.
And after the pick, the defense holds to a FG and hatcher jumps off sides thus giving Romo no other shot. needless to say, Romo should never have thrown that pick.
If Romo has a nice clean pocket, or has the ability to hand the ball off for 6 yards, that pick probably never happens. Just sayin.
You're CBR from AbsoluteCowboys, right?
If he has a clean pocket and the ability to hand the ball off for 6 yards, then what's the point? Some of the worst QBs in the league could win with that kind of support. How much help does Romo need?
And how realistic is that? How often does that happen? It's not impossible for a team to overcome their average QBs (Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, who else?), but parity is prevalent and building a team of that caliber isn't common.
On top of that, those guys didn't have the same knack for making the detrimental mistakes that Romo does. And that's Romo's biggest problem. And because it's his
biggest problem, it's quite possibly the biggest problem with the team.
That's not to say that I think the team is being held back by him at the moment. That's not true; we're just not that good right now. But if the team was a competitor I don't think we could go very far with Romo.
Because, no matter how good the team, Romo is going to eventually face adversity. It's going to happen in this parity filled league.
And to me nothing that he has done in his career indicates that he can overcome that his own internal issues.
Again, I'm not saying its impossible that it'll just click with him and those issues will go away. I'm just tired of wasting time waiting... hoping
that it will happen.
