no, but I think the point is Romo wouldn't feel so much pressure to force throws where a QB shouldn't have to because of the deficiencies in other areas of the team and the game plan.
Romo obviously makes his share of mistakes just like all the QBs out there do. You do have to admit there are a lot of times when he looks like a "chicken with his head cut off" (so to speak) trying to win the game and make something happen midst oline difficulties etc....
If we would finally build a team that doesn't lack in leadership and talent, Romo could very easily win it all. I would bet anything on that. It is just that this team for over 15 years has not had it all together in one way or another - no cohesiveness nor players (notice plural) who could pull this team together and work together to win games with conviction. I do not know how many games I have watched over the last 17 years where this team just looked like it just didn't care or they just felt they would win it without trying. Very Aggravating!
Anyways, we need to fix team deficiencies, and contrary to popular belief there is many deficiencies. This team does not have only but a few stars, I usually challenge fellow Cowboy fans to name more than 5 stars. After that it is a bunch of potential players and mediocrity. Could a coach like Bill Belichek get these players to the big game, possibly yeah, but under the current coaching staff (and I do like the changes we made assuming we also free Garrett of his playcalling duties) I think we definitely upgrade quite a few player / positions.
