    That's why the Cowboys beat the Saints Romo kept it together the entire game because the game wasn't tied and Romo wasn't in a come from behind situation. If he has a lead he's fine it's when he has to make a play that he folds in spotlighted games.

    According to Garrett he made the wrong decision. A dump to Murray that only gains 5-6 yards is a hell of a lot better than a turnover would you not agree?

    So was Eli when he made the play to Tyree in the SB. So was Montana when he made the play to Clark in the 81 title game. If it's going to take a clean pocket wit no pressure for Romo to get over the hump he'll never get over it. He made great plays under pressure all day but when the game was on the line he folded.

    When both teams are offering you a significant UDFA offer it's because they think highly of you and your chances to stick at either spot are pretty similar. You're always going to have long odds as an UDFA.

    Romo made a mistake. Unless he doesn't care about winning. Because right now he'll leave the league ringless and known as one of the biggest choke artists of his era. When in actuality he's been playing with a short deck his entire career because the dealer is too in love with himself.

    BTW, what you said there was probably pretty easy to say typing behind a computer.

    Not really, 3rd and eleven from our 20 would have been tough. Tony made the right choice, there was no time for the 3rd read or check down, he barely got it off as it was.

    The play to tyree was luck and Montana had 3 seconds plus time to roll out right and throw on the run. Romo had 1.2 seconds against the giants in cowboys best year. Take a step back and two ends are on you with heavy pressure in the A gap... Its's over. Joe Montana and Eli had great o-lines and defenses.

    We also can afford a ill timed missed tackle, offsides call, missed block or penalty, What's your point it's a team game. Putting the blame All on Romo= low football IQ.

    Romo succeeds an enormous amount of the time in late game situations while trailing.
    Jeez KJJ, what are you smoking?

    appeared, lol, you're really struggling to make this throw fit your mold. I would suggest that you 'give it up' but that's obviously not happening in anyone's lifetime.

    You and the rest are struggling to find excuses every time Romo folds. Maybe it's something in the Texas air that's affecting him and Matt Schaub.

    What am I smoking? I've made it crystal clear I'm talking about "spotlighted games" and although that was made clear in the quote you responded to some of you still haven't caught on. Romo's had a number of games where he's been clutch but they weren't "spotlighted games." He was clutch vs Detroit in 2007 bringing the Cowboys from behind in the final seconds but Detroit was a 2 win team that season and the Cowboys had already wrapped up a playoff spot. He was clutch vs SF in week 2 of the 2011 season. He made a great throw with cracked ribs and a punctured lung that helped put the Cowboys in a position to win in OT but again that wasn't a "spotlighted game."

    Those mistakes didn't cost the Cowboys the game in the end.

    Really? Smith getting bull rushed into Romo affected the throw, that's as good as a missed block to me, not to mention Escobar has to work the dig route toward Romo not the other way. It's a team game.
