One thing consistent with Tony Romo throughout his entire NFL career is his horrible results in the clutch and in the most important games of his life.
It's fun to read this stuff and then try to understand how reality is forgotten.
Against the giants in 07 he never had a turnover.
In fact on the second to last play of the game he made what should have been an incredible game winning Td in the same spot that staubach hit tony bill in 1979.
Only it wasn't a Td, know why?
Because Patrick crayton for no reason, and to this day he has no answer for this mistake, stopped running his route after misreading the defense.
Romo read it correctly and threw the ball to a perfect spot, crayton wasn't there because he gave up on the play. We lost. We should not have. The fans and the media never ever talk about this play but love to point out the final desperation throw on 4th down. Sad.
As far as the Seattle game goes, that is the toughest atmosphere in the league and he led his team right down the field trailing in the 4th qtr of his first playoff game.
The odd overturning of witten's first down was a bummer.
He made the mistake on the hold, they then changed the rule on the kicking balls.
