Have we been too hard on Romo? Maybe just a little?

    Give me a break. Wilson has 800 pass attempts the last 2 years, Romo has 1185. You don't think throwing 200 more times a year is going to affect his QB rating?

    Plus Romo has hit 97 3 times and 95 twice, despite playing behind some awful OLs during his career, so its not like 100 is some far off magical number he's never come close to.

    Perhaps he is talking about the game where Alfred Morris rushed for almost 200 yards. You do know that is lights out defense....right? I think that is the same game where DeMarcus (he gets no blame) Ware looked like a blindfolded kid at a birthday party trying to hit a pinata. I lost count how many times they ran the QB read run option at him and he hugged the air.

    Romo had a 102.5 in 2011....with well over 500 attempts.
    Pretty astounding, actually.

    I wonder how good Wilson would look playing with the offensive cast Romo has...

    Dez Bryant, Jason Witten, Demarco Murray, a top 5 OL...

    His best target in Seattle is....... Doug Baldwin?

    4. Dallas Cowboys (22nd)PB: 9th, RB: 2nd, PEN: 24th

    Stud: They got good play out of both tackles butTyron Smith (+28.3)was the pick of the bunch. The 23-year-old is already one of the best left tackles in a league filled with good ones.

    Dud: No player earned a lower grade than Ronald Leary (-9.4). The former undrafted free agent was largely decent but had a tricky middle spell to his season where he gave too much ground in pass protection.

    Analysis: When things go wrong in Dallas they get magnified. But the truth is their line was a pleasant surprise as they opened up some big holes for DeMarco Murray and gave Tony Romo ample time to work with. While the tackles were the stars of the show but Travis Frederick came in and really added something to the run game.

    WTH is "Pro Football Focus?" Why is their word "fact?"

    We had one of the worst lines in the league last year, added a rookie center and not much else and suddenly we're top 5? Yeah, no, not buying.

    BTW they also have the Denver OL listed as #1. Didn't seem to help help Manning much, he was getting crushed all night..

    Dallas was arguably a top 5 OL in the league this year. Definitely within top 10.

    Yeah, we had a putrid OL in 2012, but the beginning of 2013 saw an entirely new interior line. So 3/5s of the starters were overhauled. Tyron had more experience under his belt at LT which allowed the Cowboys to put him on "Tyron Island" and help Free more. And the combination lack of job security and just flat out getting healthy caused Big Mack to actually be better than Waters.

    But most importantly, they had another year in Callahan's ZBS.

    It's not incredibly hard to imagine why they improved significantly.

    But I'll let Ryan Pickett reiterate just in case:

    There is probably some truth to this.

    Part of it is the overselling of the team as a contender when truly..they have not been.

    Next has been the revolving door of HCs and assistants at VR.

    I'm going to be watching with great interest how Linehan makes changes and what results.

    If Garrett isn't very careful, he just may have signed his own replacement for HC\OC with Linehan as play caller.

    "Nope, Peyton's a choker like Romo. We all know that last night's game was merely a product of Russell Wilson being far superior to Peyton. It's a passing league so it makes sense to put a win or loss all on the QB, even though they spend more than half the game on the bench in the ultimate team sport."

    Wilson also ran for 500 yards. Romo ran for 30ish.

    i don't think so. manning wasn't moving at all. romo makes a nifty sidestep or spin to get away from a lot of that pressure and give his receivers another second or two.

    There is only one standard around here to judge Romo by:

    what last night real for and is jordan not going to win big game is

    Granted Seattle's D was outstanding last night but no way does Denver suffer the complete beat down they did had their offense played decently. They entered the game with an offense and QB that set several NFL records in 2013 and they couldn't even gain a first down until the second quarter. They couldn't generate any offense while the game was still in the balance due to several poor throws by Manning who took his usual crap in the SB. The Broncos had 5 turnovers including a bad snap on their very first play that cost them points. There was no excuse for a performance like that from a team that won 13 games and was competing in the SB.
