    LOL!!!!

    so when you see 2 andd 3 players breaking free through the line without being blocked, whos fault is that if not the Oline?

    Thank you. You gave me a good laugh today where there wasnt one.

    Top two receivers out with injury. But hey, none of these things is a major factor. LOL And all of them together are even less important. Bwaaaa!!!!

    Garrett obviously has no problem with getting his QB killed. I dont see what was different yesterday than what occurred to his offense in 44-6, the Minnesota game a year later, or the Giants win and in from last season. All games where teams brought huge pressure, all games where nothing resembling an adjustment is made. This is the book on how you beat Jason and his offense.

    no excuse if he's still out there. Toughness is great but to use it as an excuse for poor play after a loss is weak. At least if he came out and Orton was in there in the second half, we couldn't blame Romo for losing the game.

    I agree that our backup should have been inserted. That was a coaching decision and not a very good one.

    I for one don't want to hear anymore excuses. His play in critical games is well documented even when 100% healthy.

    Surprised he survived the season the way he had to run for his life each game.

    Just in case people aren't keeping count.

    Between the hand, the collar bone and 2 seasons of cracked ribs.

    That is now 4 of the past 5 seasons where the QB has suffered a broken bone.

    Maybe if Jerry or Garrett were taking that kind of punishment they'd be a little more anxious to get the OL fixed.

    Yea real Important. We were on our way 2 the super bowl. Just needed to beat redskins.

    Give me a break. This team was alive cuz of Romo. R defense was a joke after injuries & the o line sucks. We were going anywhere anyways

    He just threw a TD pass the previous drive.

    But dropping back and throwing off your back foot with cracked ribs is a very stupid idea. He did that in the Detroit game last year (trying to hit Witten over the deep middle) and ended up with a pick as well.

    I'm 100% sure Romo is not a choker, in the sense that most use the word--as someone who cringes from pressure and is afraid to perform in the limelight. He is almost the opposite of that, he tries to do TOO MUCH is big situations. It can be frustrating and infuriating.

    We had no answer for all of those blitzes and the WRs had a hard time beating man-to-man coverage. Even then, I felt like we were going to at least tie that game in that drive that Romo threw the pick. He looked very confident after the 1st throw for a 1st down and it looked like it was gong to be like so many other late game drives that they have put together late this season i n crunch time. He has been extremely clutch for us this year.
    But not this time. Dumb play by Tony. The blitz got him and he underestimated how far he needed to throw that ball...and you can't get the heat on a ball on your back foot with cracked ribs. Throw it away please...if possible.
    He blew it there and the the Cowboy defense could not get the ball back.

    Right before the 6 minute mark, Dez catches a first down on a slant and is tackled by a slew of Skins and Hall is standing over Dez and hacking at his hands/broken finger trying to pull the ball out after the play is long over. Then Phillips walks over and shoves Hall on his back with barely a flick of his arm.

    Too funny.

    People are so gullible.

    A punctured lung is a life-threatening situation. To imagine that a player could ever get medical clearance to play in an NFL game with that injury is comical.

    With one more collosal collapse and boneheaded play Romo had to come up with something. It was just too much.

    How do we know he had "cracked ribs"? He told us after the game.

    How did he know? Does it matter?

    He needed SOMETHING.
