    Romo also has a good rhythm going with Austin. Got to work on one with Williams.

    Since it's always been that why should it change now?

    He still missed an easy touchdown to Williams by overthrowing him.

    So, guys, Stinger's trying to point out that Tony Romo was not, in fact, perfect. For those of you who thought that's what 'sharp today' meant.

    He left 7 pts on the field last week and 7 more today. Unacceptable from the 100M dollar man.
    true I like what I've seen from Austin.

    It doesn't matter what you're paying them, they're going to leave points on the field, so you might as well accept it. What you should hope for, and expect, is that he plays at a level at or above the level his salary dictates relative to other QBs. And even then, not in the preseason when they're really not running their offense, anyway.

    An overthrow is not a good thing. But to isolate plays and not accept them is pointless. You need to evaluate his play for an entire game. Like any other human to play the game, he's going to have picks and overthrows from time to time.

    Romo left 7pts on the field in a PRESEASON PRACTICE GAME and its called unacceptable. Wow!!! That's just unbelievable. ITS A PRACTICE GAME, that's what they're for so he doesn't leave those pts on the field during the regular season. His salary has JACK to do with it. They are PRACTICING in a PRACTICE GAME. Smh!!!

    The second to last preseason game is usually the warm up for the regular season so I would like to see the first offense put it together next game.

    Tony Romo is the most overly-scrutinized quarterback in NFL history. He's far from perfect, as is true from most quarterbacks in the NFL, yet he's held to a different standard. Imagine if he missed on the throws that Palmer missed on yesterday. He missed on one throw to Williams and I've read about it on 8 different threads. Fact is he looked sharp yesterday, in a game where many others weren't. I'll take it. People who are wasting their breath on that overthrow to Williams need to have a coke and a smile....

    Romo looked good, i don't care that he over threw him on that one play. I understand that T.Will is a rookie and its going to take some time for Romo to get his timing down. Also, there were 7 other plays he looked very good on. To me though, what's "unacceptable" is our team giving up 3 fumbles from our 1st team players. We will not beat anyone playing that kind of football, even if Romo has a stellar performance.

    Romo played fine. I think people are obsessing a bit too much on his pre-season performance.

    So you "don't care" about the overthrow.

    Yet everyone elses errors are "unacceptable".

    This is why I call yall Romo Stans. The realists on this board are bashing both sides, Romo and the turnover guys, but you guys "don't care", "it's just preseason", "he was 7/10" in response to Romo's errors. It's unbelievable how biased some of you guys are towards him.

    And this is why I call you a Romo hater. You obviously have some sort of distaste for Romo, I've seen you multiple times now make 100 million dollar man comments. Like really dude? Are those necessary? And anyone knowledgable of football knows that T.Will is just a rookie and Romo will start to connect on those plays more as they play together.

    They lean to the extreme one way because the people on the other side are leaning to the extreme in the other direction. It is human nature. If the people criticizing Romo would be more even keeled in their criticism of him, the people defending him would likely be less fanatical in their approach.

    I'm sure the reverse is true as well.

    I always try to remember that the person defending Romo has had year's of over-analysis and criticism thrown at them about him, and so their response might be a little overkill for that particular conversation. It is cumulative.

    Same goes for the people who criticize Romo. They've heard what they feel like are excuses for years now, and they too overreact.

    Like I said, it is simple human nature, and really no surprise for those of us who have lived through the last six seasons.

    But what does T. Will being a rookie have to do with that play? Is it possible for you stans to place blame on Romo SOLELY?

    My whole focus this offseason was on Red Zone Offense and Quick Starts in games. I keep repeating myself about this b/c I truly believe this will determine our season.

    Last season we ranked 30th in the league at 2.8 pts/per 1st Q. 28th in the league in avg pts for the 1st half (7.8 pts).

    So far this preseason we're seeing a repeat of last season. Countless pts being left on the field early in games, penalties in the red zone, wide open receivers being missed. 1st team offense has 3 pts so far this preseason.

    Now there is only one side that continues to ignore this and instead would rather focus on Romo's yards and completions. Has Romo ever had issues passing btw the 20s? What is the big deal about him doing it this preseason? I'd gladly give back half the completions and half the yards for those 14 pts he's left on the field the past two weeks.
