I think that is hyperbole. Average, yes. But there seems to be a collective imagination involved with Romo in that he is running for his life every down, with a jailbreak in his face each time he goes back to pass. Untrue. The OL is inconsistent and very spotty, but we should not pretend it has been unable to pass protect on every down. It is better than last season IMO. Now the run blocking seems the same. Granted, Waters is missed.
