It's way early, but it looks to me like we are making a concerted effort to be more aggressive in the passing game so far this preseason. I've long maintained that the key for a Romo offense is attacking vertically in the passing game, and it's something we've gotten progressively worse at since Garrett took over. Here is Romo's net yards per pass attempt for every season in his career: 2006: 7.76 2007: 7.42 2008: 7.07 2009: 7.34 2010: 7.11 2011: 7.09 2012: 6.78 We made the playoffs in the three seasons with the highest net yards per attempt and missed the playoffs in the four seasons with the lowest average. in the first two preseason games, Romo has average 11.0 and 14.2 yards per attempt, much of it on vertical throws or crossing/slant patterns that are designed to pick up significant yards after the catch. That's the type of offense that made us so explosive in 2006 and 2007 but has been marginalized since. If what we have seen in the last two preseason games is a harbinger of what is to come, Dallas could have a very effective offense in 2013.
