    The thing I noticed last night is that with Romo, the Cowboys actually had 3rd and long plays called and they were successful. With Bledsoe, anything beyond 3rd and ten, it was a dump off pass for minimal yards or a sack.

    I noticed the same thing. With Bledsoe it was normally just a draw that would get us about half the yardage needed, but with Romo we actually went for the 1st down.

    Like the crew on DallasCowboys.com pointed out, it was a key 3rd and 16 in the fourth quarter where Tony Romo side stepped the rush and threw a dart the Jason Witten for a first down, that saved the game and possibly our season!

    I agree. I think that was Romo's best play of the night.

    That was a bullet to Witten. Romo actually scanned the field and launched.

    Stepping up in the pocket litterally gives him 3-4 extra seconds to scan, pick a target and chunk. It is like having two pass plays on a single down!

    Bledsoe - 3 seconds and BAAAK Baaak Bak Bak .... lays egg

    Romo - 3 seconds - step up in pocket, receivers juking and jiving, launch - 1st down!!!
