    To be honest, I don't think it's the fact that it was a miss on a single pass out of a relatively strong performance. What I think the issue is, is most of us just remember all the little mistakes that have kept this team behind in one way or another. No, they're not all Romo, but a set of them have been because of him. He's now paid like a SB winning QB and I don't like seeing easy throws like that being overthrown.

    Hey did anyone know, that even players like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Drew Brees overthrow receivers. Or are they like gods in your eyes? I watched some games last year when Tom Brady had a lot of bad overthrows. **** happens.

    You continue to exhibit your ignorance of the game of football.

    Well, I can't find much to argue with you about that. We definitely need to put the ball in the endzone more than we did last year.

    However, while his pass to Williams would have been a touchdown, it wouldn't have been Dallas scoring in the red zone and wouldn't have been viewed as an improvement in that area.

    I view it like this: Romo missed on that throw, plain and simple. However, give Romo 10 shots like that and he will hit Williams 8 or 9 out of those 10. It isn't a concern. Because of the turnovers, we didn't get a chance to see Romo and the first team in the red zone to know if they are getting any better of not. However, looking at what they've done this preseason, it is pretty evident that the OL is much improved and the running lanes are going to be way, way better than they were last year. The team has been better on short yardage situations, and overall has been pretty sharp. I don't think they will be as inept in the redzone, in running the ball, or in first half scoring as they were last year.

    Plus, I think there is a whole lot the team isn't using right now. Things will look different from last year on offense and they are keeping all of that under wraps.

    I just think it is pretty clear that Dallas will be more efficient and effective on offense this year.

    We probably score more points in the first half if 4 things had not happened.

    1) Romo overs throws T. Will
    2) Dumbar doesn't fumble on the 7 yard line.
    3) Dez fumble on the 30 (guessing approximate line there).
    4) Harris turns the ball over so we have one less offensive series to move the ball.

    Three turnovers and you focus on one in-completion. It's really not a wonder most disregard what you have to say due to you anti Romo agenda.

    You're joking right? Him being a rookie has a lot to do with that play. Those plays are all about timing and it takes years to develop that chemistry. Not just one camp which is what you probably think. Like I said, anyone somewhat knowledgable of football knows this. It's obvious Romo made a mistake on that play, but I said "I don't care" because it was only a timing problem. It wasn't a mental mistake or anything like that, just timing.

    Do you want to compare the salaries of those 4 players?

    FYI I was calling them idiots too in the Game Thread (w/ the exception of Dez who looked like he was trying to cover up the ball but the corner just made a good play.

    There are posters in the other thread literally saying Romo's play is not a big deal, then in the very next sentence criticize the turnovers. Yet you have no problem with that stanley.

    Agree that Romo looks sharp. I expect him to have a monster season. There is no doubt watching him play that he is in the upper echelon of NFL qbs.

    Fair enough. I understand the importance of timing with a receiver. But lets not forget that T-Will was tearing it up in practice all week. So lets not act like he was coming off the street. They've had a good amount of time to get acclimated with each other and have proven in practice that they can clique easily. Romo just didn't do it on that play.

    Lol...I have problems with all of the mistakes, including the two interceptions I did not even mention, since we were talking the first quarter in your original post. It's your 100 million dollar comment and focusing only on Romo that turns people off. When a player is on the field and an error is made, I immediately look at what went wrong, I don't scramble to look at their salary cap number.

    A) Tom Brady - 3 Super Bowl wins
    B) Peyton Manning - 1 Super Bowl win
    C) Drew Brees - 1 Super Bowl win
    D) Tony Romo - 1 Playoff win

    Which one is not like the others?

    And Romo is paid relatively the same as each of them.

    LOL at drawing any conclusions from the preseason.

    I guess the Broncos are terrible. They did get beat 40-10 afterall. Might as well not play. See how ridiculous that sounds?

    Again LOL @ drawing overarching conclusions about the efficacy of this offense from preseason games.

    I mean....is this your first time following football?
