    The starting O-line looked really good out there, Romo had all the time in the world and they made running the ball very productive. Its very obvious we have better production with T-Fred at center vs him playing guard. I hope that is an emergency last resort option that we never have to use..

    Romo Highlights vs Oakland: "A tipped ball on a screen pass was followed by a sack. Romo had enough time but seemingly didn’t see wide open receivers Dez Bryant and Miles Austin, setting up third-and-25."

    It's pretty sad when your franchise QB still can't execute a freaking screen pass or hit WIDE OPEN receivers while having all the time in the world!!! Can't blame the O-line anymore.... :mad:

    And we still sputter and stall in the redzone, poor clock management, false starts, and holding all while Romo is at the helm yet our second teamers and third teamers seem to have flow..:mad:

    I'm gonna be nice here and call it rust but if this continues all the way up till game 3 then once again I'll be calling for Orton to start because he sure looks a whole lot better out there throwing the ball to scrubs. Imagine what he could do with Dez and company....:confused:

    Tony was 6 of 8 for, what, 88 yards, in two series last night? We should struggle this much in the regular season.

    He executed 6 of 8 passes that's what matters. So he can't execute a screen pass IN YOUR OPINION means he struggled. Just stop.

    The Romo haters are so tiring. Must be a bummer to hate someone so much. Romo had a good game.

    I totally agree, we should bring in Orton to play. Romo has been holding us back for the past couple years now and it needs to stop. OMG did you see that sack he took? Even M.Sanchez would've made a check down there, our QB Is just horrible. :rolleyes:

    Man was that hard typing with a straight face ... Also I thought there wasn't any people calling for Orton to start ... Or that's at least what I was told. :confused:

    Seriously has there ever been a grossly overpaid franchise qb with more detractors than Romo in the history of the game? If he's so special why are so many divided over his, "Performance" on the field? Weird....

    Paging stat cops, lol

    I saw the game. And I think anyone who has a significant problem with the play of Tony Romo that night, or in general, doesn't know what they're talking about when it comes to the play of NFL QBs. That's just my opinion, of course.

    Keep in mind, these are the same bunch who were Quincy Carter fans too.

    Never considered Carter a franchise QB. I saw him as a developmental player who was very erractic with his throws.

    That'd be an awesome point if it had the benefit of being true. Good stuff.

    On a positive take from all the Romo haters out there is that it points out to me who knows what they're talking about and who doesn't. The haters are just negative Nancy types not realizing that their hate shows their lack of knowledge.

    It's not Romo's play, it's still his decision making. I'm going to refer back to the play where he got sacked. For now, I'll dismiss it as rust, but why is Romo holding onto the ball so long in a pre-season game?

    It's a bad decision and was underwhelming from a fan perspective because he had targets, he just didn't pull the trigger.

    Again, probably just rust... but I've also seen Romo go completely gun shy before in early 2009 after that abomination of a Giants game (at least until Austin broke out against KC). Hope he's not rattled and over thinking things because of his last play against the Redskins/expectations/ a mountain of other possible things.

    It really is entertaining, when you look at it that way....in a very sad sort of way.

    I think the point is that if a QB plays a quarter and looks mostly sharp according to 90% of objective viewers, 1 or 2 plays that did not work out does not make it a "bad" performance.
    I mean, 6-8 for 88, 110 rating while not dinking and dunking.
    Yet there is a thread created to say how poorly he played. Good grief.

    It just really comes off as if some want total perfection both physically and mentally, when that is basically impossible. As if they are digging very deep to find any miscue or flaw and wrapping the entire performance around that.
    I agree, there could be a tiny bit of rust...maybe.
    But it just seems extremely agenda-driven (and I don't see how else could be described) to call the overall performance "struggling" and so bad it warrants its own thread.
