    Tony Romo wasn’t the only Cowboy who had to overcome a shaky start Thursday.

    Laurent Robinson said Romo’s second interception actually wasn’t the quarterback’s fault. Although it appeared that Romo underthrew Robinson on the sideline route, the receiver took full responsibility.

    “I was supposed to stop right there, but I was reading something on the run, and I thought I was supposed to go deep,” Robinson said. “I made a bad play. I’ve got to watch the film to see what happened and do better than that.”

    It didn’t stop Romo from looking his way. Robinson was targeted 12 times, twice as much as any Cowboys receiver, and he responded by catching seven passes for 79 yards with two touchdowns.

    Love that Robinson admits his mistakes. I wish that all our receivers would say, "That's on me," when an interception results from a misread or bad route.

    I think this is the second time Robinson has done that this season.

    No worries Laurent, someone will claim it was a bad play call and you are exonerated.

    even if it wasnt really his fault, i like how he didnt throw Tony under the bus. I like how he took full responsibility for the play, as Tony most likely did.

    I guess he was supposed to stop, but he was open deep. I don't know what read or what play would be designed to not blow past your guy with no safety over top :laugh2:

    A well thrown ball on the route he did run might have gone to the house.

    Romo to Robinson has been a blessing... You can tell Romo really like him. I think Jerry Jones will be paying this 26 year-old WR very soon.

    Go re-watch the play.

    There was a safety over the top.

    Robinson should be commended for this loyalty, but frankly I think he was fibbing. As Future mentioned, why would that play be designed to stop when his man was beat and the safety seemed late coming over?

    Why would he lie? Romo has always lived up to his mistakes. Now Robinson lives up to his. That's good stuff.

    All of our players do nothing but lie if you believe the posters here.

    Pure class to own up to a bad read. I'll bet Romo won't forget it. I love this player. He's the "anti-Roy."

    Are you kidding me? Do you know anything about playing football? Timing? How is Tony Romo supposed to read a route properly based on coverage, release the ball to a spot and then... pull it back in mid air because the receiver mis-read the coverage and decided to take off? Exactly how does a QB do that?

    Good grief people. Good grief.

    Tony Romo is NOT the problem with the Dallas Cowboy's. He is actually incredibe.

    Chill. I'm not blaming Tony. I know it was Robinson's mistake...I'm just saying if he was right it might have been a big play.

    Hey, Future. Re-read my post - didn't mean to offend by suggesting you don't know anything about playing football. Poor choice of words, combined with a quick trigger.

    You're right, if Tony had the time to recognize Robinson taking it to the house - it would have probably gone yard...

    I agree with what you said before. It's certainly not the first time the receiver made the "wrong" read on a route resulting in an interception where the "wrong" read looked to be much better than the "right" read. It makes me question how they are being taught to read, and what their reactions to those reads are sometimes.
