I don't want to see Romo get back to the point where he's force-feeding the ball to Dez like he would T.O., as I agree that ball distribution is important. At the same time, don't you want the ball in your best player's hands? That stat Keyshawn referenced is, like you said, absolutely baffling.
My only takeaway is that Romo sees Dez as a source for touchdowns -- hence all the goal-line throws -- but not necessarily the engine that drives our offense down the field. Williams has been on the team for eight weeks and seems to get more targets.
"Start getting some blame?"
Do you even read these forums?
Romo got blamed after one of the greatest games ever quarterbacked in NFL history.
Hell you were one of the guys blaming him.
i've seen garrett receive a mountain of blame. romo is going under the radar.
i didn't blame him after the broncos game, you've mistaken me with someone else.
No issues with Dez. He is a baller that wants to win games.
Romo's going to go where the coverage dictates in those situations, and the coverage is going to roll heavily to Dez with the game on the line. On the surface, that number seems absurd, though.
Tell him he's wrong. It wasn't edited but refilmed. The whole piece was filmed last night after they got back to Dallas.
Near the grassy knoll. If you look close, you can even see Jimmy Hoffa as an extra dressed like a coach.
Dumbest non story I've seen in a while. Dez has nothing to apologize for, at all. If the Cowboys had more players with Dez' fire maybe we'd be above .500.
Dez is no better than an animal. I can't believe he would talk to his team mates like that. He should be clearing out his locker by the end of the week.
I deleted my original post I was going to post, it was a tad too harsh. So I'll tone it down. I hope that the lesson learned here is to NEVER jump to conclusions without knowing first. People in the game-day thread turned on Dez so quickly because they assumed he was going off on Romo and Garrett when I tried to remind them that we haven't the slightest clue as to what he was talking about. Please allow things to play out before you judge someone. That's all I'll say about that.
Did you see Romo trying to convince Garrett to get the first down at the end of the game? He was in his face asking to go for it. I wish Romo would have just audibled out of the run play to a play action pass and the seal the game.
And, it's because of this mindset and lack of passion on the team and in the fanbase that they are 144-145 since Super Bowl 30. The same lack of passion exists in that stadium as well.
Any real team would A) welcome that passion and B) know how to harness it.
If you have a problem with what Dez' did and what he represents, then you're no better than the rest of the robots we've had around here the last 10 years and we know where they got us.
You can't win in the NFL with good guys. Maybe Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett don't want thugish players on the team, however it hasn't won them anything.
Romo is not without blame in this Lions game. He didn't throw an INT, but he had a vital INC. 3rd to last drive that resulted in a punt, but...
(~2:38) 3rd and 12 at DAL 23(Shotgun) T.Romo pass incomplete short right to C.Beasley. Detroit had already taken one timeout. If Romo runs with the ball, plays it safe and slides, Detroit is forced to burn their 2nd timeout OR the clock runs down to the 2-Minute warning.
Vital because letting the clock run down to the 2minute warning or forcing the timeout ultimately kills about :24-:30. :24-:30 that Detroit wouldn't have had on their 50sec drive at the end. BIG difference. That INC pass was a boneheaded play by Romo. When he saw that Beasley was covered and decided to throw it out of bounds, he SHOULD have tucked it and run for whatever yards he could get (even 0yds would have been acceptable).
(also T.Smith's hold but that's a whole other thread).
I think it's only manufactured if your opinion was driven by the media. From my perspective, the audio just tells half the story since there were two instances.
So it doesn't change my opinion much about the distraction of the 2nd sideline instance. But as I stated on Sunday, I was cool with it as soon as Romo & Co. said they were cool with it.
I only watched it once, and was focusing on Dez, trying to hear what he said, ... but I didn't even notice Garrett was in the picture. LOL LOL!
I was surprised to see on ESPN that these guys defended Dez:
Surprised to see that CC did not, ... but not surprised at all to see that Tom Jackson did not get it.
Chris Carter actually said that what Romo said was a lie.
He is a schmuck.
So why did Dez refuse to take get with Romo and his teammates to design the final play? Like Witten said, "don't quit on us, Dez."
This isn't a big deal, but that tape doesn't explain the end of the game with Witten.
