    Well get used to it boys. Thats all hes going to see from here on out. And when you dumb *** coach allows the other team to dictate how you run your offense and be afraid to throw him the ball then why should we expect anything differently. The other part of the problem is the other "talent" on the team cant back the play when given sigle coverage.

    Dez can't get open. Yeah, Romo over threw him on one play but Dez was completely shutdown. Dez is not elite

    What was just as pathetic is we only threw the ball only 6 times in the first half. We're a passing team, if we're going to beat teams it's going to be by our passing offense, not by our defense and running game.

    He's a known clueless Romo basher, pretty much everything he says regarding Romo is just about gibberish.

    I don think Romo completely trusts him to throw into double coverage, I also think Romo is trying to be to cautious and not risk the turnover possibility. It's a damn shame the lame coaching staff didn't adjust to Ryan's defense and move Dez around

    Pathetic offense aside, looks to me if he throws more to the middle that's an easy pick. Not saying that wasn't a terrible throw, but think you have to throw it over the top. Dez doesn't have lift the top of the defense speed, you need to get it to him in the direction of the throw, but like 10 yards or so shorter.

    Man, this play design is so sad...think we've ruined or darn near ruined our qb, and I don't see our plays teaching Dez a thing other tha "out execute".

    No matter what play is called and no matter what route dez is running romo is still holding the ball and can throw to him.

    Given that Jerry said romo was drawing up sandlot plays in the huddle and that it has been stated that by romo and Callahan that romo changes run plays to pass plays during the game do u really think romo is deciding not to throw it to dez because Garrett told him don't force the ball. He forces it to witten at times. If romo thought he could complete a pass to dez he would throw it regardless of the coverage.

    He is elite, but our offense is predictable like so many have said. The opposing D knows exactly where Dez will be and what type of route he will run. If Dez was in another offense, he would shine. It would also be nice if Romo would just trust him to go get the ball by putting it where only Dez can catch it.

    After the Detroit game I posted a thread regarding this aspect......"AJ Green 19 targets"..I would say 50% of the replies were defending the "don't force it" to Dez.. maybe more than that.....I guess I only needed another week or so to convince the rest!!! Garret and Callahan a joke....Romo increasingly starting to get some blame also....

    Can y'all imagine Troy being afraid to throw the ball to Irvin because he was being double covered? Someone said it right earlier, PATHETIC

    There are only so many routes a receiver can run. The receiver has to get the defender to turn his hips the wrong way by selling one route and going a different way.

    You don't need too many route options to do this. Now it becomes more difficult when double covered. And nearly impossible if you don't have good technique in selling one thing and doing another.

    From watching the espn dez highlights it looks like dez was overwhelmed and frustrated and just not getting it done.

    Lol. Comparing dez to Irvin. Dez does not run routes or do fundamentals anywhere near the level that Irvin did

    Sad but true and as much as I rag on Romo I still support him. Who else is there anyways?

    It can be both, Romo has missed a lot more open throws this season then he has in the past. And I love Romo, when healthy...but his safe zone is definitely the middle of the field and JG doesn't even send a WR not named Beasley in the middle of the field?

    I knew someone would say this. As I've said before, there's a difference in a "Romo trying to give his guy a chance to make a play" INT and the typical "bonehead throw get up and chew the receiver out" INT. I will take the picks if the guy is throwing it up to a top 5
    receiver in this NFL, will not accept an idiotic heave hoping a ROOKIE TE makes a play. Carry on.
