    Forcing the opponent to punt isn't asking much is it? The defense was HORRIBLE that game.

    And it wasn't triple coverage. We had an entire thread about the play from the 22 film.

    It would certainly be a sight to see if a team decided to triple cover a backup TE...

    So if he threw that INT in the 1st Qtr and thus the game was never tied in the first place he WOULDN'T be responsible? That makes no sense. You guys with your timing arguments are laughable. An INT hurts whenever it occurs.

    Perfect results with any pass aren't guaranteed. A number of passes have to be fit in tight spaces at times to be successful. Romo was accomplishing that that day. People like you who complain when any aggression is used and fails once during a game is the reason we now usually play so freaking conservative and our offense plays scared.

    There was a massive thread which detailed all of the arguments / counterarguments made about that throw and if it was the right thing to do. You obviously do not take into account the foot being stepped on, being jostled or any of the other "excuses" of why that pass was off. But those things do happen. It was the right play if you wanted to play aggressive, which we had to considering our defense.

    A dump off to Murray might or might not have gotten the first down. If they didn't get it, you'd be ragging on Romo for playing it safe. If Romo can't be perfect and go 35/35 for 350 yards 5 Tds no INTs, you think he failed.

    Silliness I say, just silliness.

    As the actual event gets further and further behind, these silly little details keep getting forgotten or ignored by some, sometimes accidentally, sometimes on purpose.

    If someone keeps repeating something over and over and as others memories become less clear on it, sometimes a false idea becomes internet fact, lol.

    3rd and 12? What are you talking about? Had he thrown to Murray, he could have racked up some decent yards there. Possible he even gets the first down.

    In regards to the Denver game, I wonder what Cowboy fans would be saying about Romo if the roles were reversed? Instead let's say Romo had produced an all time low offensive production. Let's call it his Philly 2007 game. 13 of 36 for 214 yards 0 TDs and 3 INTs for a QB rating of 22.2. Let's say that means Dallas has put 10 points on the board but the Dallas defense has held Denver to 3 FGs. So with 2 minutes remaining Dallas leading 10-9 is forced to punt, Denver gets the ball and goes 40 yards for a game winning FG. Game over. Denver wins 12-10.

    Who should take the lion share of the blame? Anybody want to guess who takes the blame in this scenario? Sure, the defense "played a part" in the loss, but I can guarantee you weeks and months and years removed from that game, the person taking blame for that loss will be Romo and rightfully so.

    Let's quit playing games. You should win most games with 500 yards, 6 TD drives, 2 FG drives, and an INT. You should lose most games that your defense allows 48 points.

    Great post and I agree. There are other games where you can say Romo is mostly responsible for having lost the game, but to bring up the Denver game as one of them is silly.

    Go back and look at the play. Nobody even remotely close to Murray. He would have easily picked up several yards and the game wouldn't have been over.

    It does not change the result in your mind! Just say it like it is. smh

    The defense giving up 51 points is Romo's fault. You should write fiction for a living.

    Go back and look at the game! If the defense does not give up 48 points, Romo is not in a position to make a bad play.

    But, keep the hate loyal...you are sooooo good at it!

    Maybe twodeep is cross-eyed and he thought he saw triple coverage?

    He was wide open but a few stills showed two defenders that may or may not have closed in on him. I can see it now.....Romo goes to Murray and he gets stopped short for a first then all we hear about is check-down Tony and why he didn't throw it past the markers.

    He can't win for losing sometimes.

    So 100 other plays are completely meaningless because Romo threw a pick?

    WTH kind of logic is that? All the other points are moot because the game was tied? What, the game is a coin flip now?

    The defense gave up 48 points. That happened. It matters. It counts. Yes, Romo threw a bad pick, and he shares some blame for the loss, but if he wasn't perfect the rest of the day they wouldn't even be tied. Why is that moot because he was and they were? Because you say so?

    Got that right.

    If you had to pick a game that says "Romo can't get it done", the Denver game and his 5 TDs and 500 yards (and the team's 48 points) would not be the one to use.
    That was one of the very best games played all year in the NFL by any QB.

    What is even more embarrassing is that the OP wants to bring up a game from a few months ago! I mean, come on now! Get out of the past and try living in the here and now for a change!

    Yeah, check down Tony when he threw for 500 yards in the game. That really makes sense. it wasn't 3rd down on that play, throwing to Murray would have gotten them close to a first down if not the first down and they could then run or throw it again. Instead Tony throws an interception. Just deal with it.
