    Romo's Best Season Yet Goes To Waste
    Josh Ellis

    IRVING, Texas - It's nothing new. The quarterback is the only player on the team for whom the win-loss record is an accepted standard of judgment.

    In that respect, Tony Romo had an average year. Combine all the other measures of success for the position, though, and it was one of the greatest seasons by a quarterback in Cowboys history. Romo threw for 4,184 yards, tossing 31 touchdowns against 10 interceptions while completing over 66 percent of his passes. His passer rating of 102.5 was fourth best in the league, behind only Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Tom Brady.

    In the end, what did it matter?...

    Here is some focused direction in the article:

    Part of the building process was revamping the offensive line in 2011, with the team moving on from three high-priced veterans, and inserting two rookies into starting roles to begin the year, along with a second-year pro. The result was a slight uptick in the running game, but 39 sacks, eight more than last season. The 36 sacks taken by Romo were the most of his career.

    While head coach and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett made sure to point out the challenge of such turnover on the offensive line, he also signaled on Monday that the front five wasn't set in stone moving forward.

    "They did some good things," Garrett said. "They did grow throughout the season. But we want to get better in that area as well."
