    They should . I don't know of any other QB who could avoid the rush, throw off balance and still get it to the receiver in bounds. I think Tony's basketball skills really come into play on those types of situations.

    He looks like he is making a cut, pivot, and launches to a spot. Very similar to a good BB player

    I think its time we start to give some credit to the new receivers coach, and yes to JG for bringing him, and the other new coaches on board.

    Glad you posted it. It gave us another chance to offer perspectives on a developing star, and another fantastic play by Tony R

    I think the original route would have been for Witten but the pocket broke down and TWILL improvised moving to open space. In addition, if you look at it if ROMO throws that ball to Witten given where the CB guarding TWILL, in my opinion the CB possibly picks the ball off. Great play by TWILL and ROMO.

    How is this not a legitimate assumption? Romo had been fairly inaccurate all game, and Witten was within 5 yards of Williams.

    Also, Williams said that wasn't his original route.

    Don't let the sunshine blind ya.

    It looks like Witten was slanting towards the pylon a bit. I'm torn on it. I could see it both ways but I think Romo was laughing because he had just seen Twill breaking to the back corner of the end zone so it was a safe throw. I don't think he was telling him I meant to throw it to Witten

    Yeah i agree. I have no idea who Romo was actually throwing to. But the Romo defenders act like it is out of the realm of possibility that he was throwing the ball to witten.

    Yep, I thought it looked like he was throwing it away to. Guess he pulled a little Romo Magic (luck) out of the hat and with a great catch by TWILL they both became hero's for the day......In the end, it doesn't matter... if it was luck, magic or a gift, it ended up a great throw and great catch for 6pts. Thats all that matters...LOL

    If you look at the replay Witten really speeded up when the ball was in the air, then slowed when he saw Williams. Just a nice improvised play by Romo and WIlliams. Dont know if he was throwing ball away or not but it was a great play.

    That ball was thrown where only Williams could come down with it. Don't think it was meant for Witten.


    Furthermore, why do some people think that if it were meant for Witten instead of Williams, that somehow Romo therefore deserves less credit for the play?

    Yeah, it's not like Williams stepped in front of Witten and caught it. If he had stepped in front of Witten, he wouldn't have been anywhere near the ball.

    Its not that complicated, is it?

    Romo escaped, saw T Williams running toward back pylon, threw ball. Touchdown.

    Was it drawn up that way? No. Its just two guys on the same wavelength. Good stuff.

    Romo put that ball where ONLY TWill could get it, and the kid did his best Fred Astaire impression and came through...fantastic
