    That Denver game is the one anomaly that I think is confusing people.

    Like I said, on the few plays where the stars aligned he didn't get the job done. I eagerly await the article of the remaining 35 plays where the offensive line gave him no chance or when the receivers (like Witten) drop the ball when it hits them in the hands.

    You only have to be able to get 4 yards on one play during the first two downs to make 3rd down managable.
    Even better if you can get six between two plays.

    This team needs to run the ball.
    Keep the opponents offense off of the field and run the clock.

    It just seems in all kinds of disarray when I watch the games.

    It's crazy because when they are clicking they look unstoppable...when they are not they look like Jacksonville.

    Redskins are in the pitiful situation because they did the same thing this season. You don't abandon the run when it is working.

    Stats are meaningless if they come in losses. Losses that have happen in part because the offense is struggling. That's on Romo as much as its on the head coach and oc.

    All 22 is pretty revealing, this is happening in every game multiple times

    Best draft for QB in a long time. They'd be dumb not to look into the future guy.

    Common sense says that.

    That is not how Jerry Jones' mind works. Drafting Manziel (if available) would be a risky stroke that could be genius. Gets the butts in the seats and keeps the same kind of QB around that he apparently likes. This overall roster is not in good enough shape for him to take that risk, not with the cap constraints as well. The Romo contract is also prohibiting an investment at the position.

    Blame whoever you want but this offense has been reluctant to throw the ball in the middle of the field. Wheter its Romo, play design, reads or whatever, those pictures show the recievers open in the middle of the field, and the throw goes to the outside of the hashes. This has been a problem since last year.

    Are you in denial ?

    That offensive performance in the passing game last week was one of the worst I have seen in years.

    So, are u trying to convince us that Romo has been in a bit of a slump the last 3-4 games? If so, fine, you have a point. I think, though, that what a lot of you are getting at is that it's time to move on from Romo. I can hear you saying now: "We never plan for the future. We keep guys on the roster when they show signs of decline while good teams get rid of them immediately". The problem is, this is purely agenda-driven. The same people who say this are the ones who say "X player is a bust" after 1 game or "That's it, we lost" after the other team scores a TD in the 2nd quarter. It's not like it exactly takes anything near a large enough sample size to convince you of anything except what you already want to hear. Tony Romo may be having a rough stretch, but these last few games are not his demise.

    Are you hate fueled sheep lost in another farmers flock masquerading as someone giving a fair and unbiased opinions? Yes, yes you are.

    Clearly you are lying, "worst I have seen in years"? Please you are a slurs fan, performances like that are par for the course.

    Now go try and stomach a Jags game.

    I agree with this statement, the Cowboys are going to go as far as Tony can take them.

    Interesting article. Though in play 5, at least from the still, I don't see how he gets that ball to Williams. From the image, looks like he would end up throwing off his back foot AND get lit up as well.

    It's been a problem for Garrett ever since he's been here. Even with TO, this offense attacked the sidelines. The middle has normally been reserved for the chec-down, once the long deeloping routes run right into the teeth of coverage.

    Some people will defend Romo to the very end. I can understand that but it doesnt change the fact that he is not playing like a 100 million dollar qb. Hes just not.

    http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2013...th-the-cowboys-offense-explained-in-two-plays

    "Ok, so you don't run the ball, and you don't use your best weapon when you have an open opportunity to audible to him on a quick slant, hitch, or whatever. You run the play as called. Then it falls on your quarterback to make the right throw. Tony Romo instead chose the worst of all options."

    It may have been he worst option, but Williams was behind the teeth of the defense. The only thing that was the problem was Romo's throw being a little behind him. So again, if Williams is the progression, and he is open, why wouldn't Romo throw it to him? Additionally, T Williams is ALSO single-covered, meaning they got the match-up they wanted on single coverage for T Will.

    Further, Romo can't simply audible into any play he wants. He has a set of plays to audible from. Why would he audible out of single coverage to go to Dez, in single coverage?

    Again, all of this analysis is predicated on Romo not being dictated by progressions.

    Additionally, there is a concepy of rhythm. An offense has to work to establish some sort of rhythm for it's QB, so that when he finally gets an opening, he won't have his timing off... Our offense is a mess...

    You're right, he's playing much better than Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco. Let's call him a $110 million QB.
