    why pick that play to say it counted most? could just as easy say Tony screwed up when it counted most on his audible

    Did I say Romo only had one bad series ? So don't act like that's what I said.

    I said Romo would play good for the majority of a game, then come 4th qtr he'd throw an interception or make a crucial mistake. What Dez did against KC was no different, he lit them up for the whole game, but come 4th qtr with the game on the line, he mad a crucial drop. The only difference here is you're giving Dez a pass, but whether you like it or not, they are very similar situations.

    As for the super man catch, Dez should make those catches, I remember just recently many here claimed he was an elite WR in the NFL. An elite WR makes that catch, and he did. It was a superb catch.

    Wrong, absolutely wrong. Since you don't understand football let me clue you in. NFL football is the ULTIMATE team sport. It takes all 46 players to come together to win a game. All teams are that closely matched. Romo wasn't perfect yesterday, but you can't put the blame soley on him. Only a hater, such as yourself, would do that. Dunbar fumbled also. Dez dropping a TD pass. Fred was responsible for 2 sacks. The running game was responsible for 36 yards. Even Hatcher blamed the defense for not stopping the Chiefs late in the 4th qtr. You're either ignorant or just trolling with your remark.

    I read your comment wrong my bad.

    But this is not similar to Romo getting criticism b/c Romo was bad for nearly the entire game. The bulk of the blame goes on him.

    And Dez shouldn't have to make those catches. The $100M should have laced that ball to him in stride, the way Aikman used to do.

    I mean seriously, what you've seen from him the first two games...does that look worthy of a $100M dollar contract? Be honest.

    What the heck are you talking about. We're talking about DEZ, out of all the targets towards DEZ, that play was the one that counted most. The game was on the like at the point in the game, and he dropped a perfectly thrown ball that he normally catches 9/10 times.

    I hope Dez's talent is not going to waste here in the Big D. So sad.

    Ok and if you add all that up...the bulk of the blame goes on romo. Still works the same.

    Nobody made more mistakes than tony

    The only mistake Romo made was picking the Cowboys over Denver. Then he wouldn't have to deal with idiot Cowboy fans who get their takes from ESPN.

    Dez has fantastic hands. All WR's drop balls from time to time.

    If anyone thinks Dez doesn't have great hands they need their eyes checked.

    He dropped one. It happens. He also made some terrific catches.

    There were enough mistakes to go around yesterday... there is no need to blame any one person.

    Even then in one of the most hostile environments in all of sports we almost won.

    Time to move on to St. Louis.

    One mistake that had big unexpected consequences was Leary's false start in the red zone. The Boys were backed up 5 yards from the penalty, and the play was changed to the infamous screen pass to Terrance Williams.

    Romo has gotten criticism "in the past" about making those crucial mistakes, even though he would play flawlessly for the majority of the game. I'll use the Giants game where he overthrew Miles as an example. He played good, but made a crucial mistake when the game was on the line by over throwing Miles. After that game, you had many blame Romo for that game. It's the same situation with Dez whether you acknowledge it or not, just Dez gets a pass.

    Well even the greatest of QBs make bad throws, even your boy Troy Aikman does. His 141 career interceptions proves that, so if Dez can't come up with those catches then he'll never be an elite WR.
    Are you seriously going to judge 2 games whether Tony Romo is worth his contract value? You're making your self sound foolish. I'm not as foolish as to judge a QB by 2 games, so I'll go by what he's done over his career.

    65% Completion Rate
    180 TDs
    95 QB Rating

    To answer your question being "honest", yes he's worth his contract value. SMH.

    you pay players based on what you think they'll do for you in the future not what they've done for you in the past. romo has not looked good the first two games. i don't care what he did before the contract.

    I made that point in the post game thread and someone responded with "all the great receivers make that catch"....which maybe true but all the great QB's hit him in stride there for six points.

    No, I understand that Romo is just starting off slow.

    You have to remember that Romo hasn't had his "normal" off season, actually it's been far from it. He had to deal with back surgery in the off season, that alone took him out a while and he lost quite a bit of time from it. He also came in over weight which further delayed the process. So one can conclude from what's happened this off season that he's going to have a slow start to the season, especially since he didn't have his normal amount of reps.

    Also, I'm sure his bruised ribs aren't helping him either, heck we're not even sure if that's really the case. He could easily have a busted rib, but the team wouldn't release information like that.

    Is that so? I guess Tom Brady and Peyton Manning aren't great then because when I watched them both I seen them each miss a WR for a WIDE OPEN touchdown.

    That's fine-we'll take Manning instead....no problem.

    Can we have a do-over??

    Is that so? because I've seen Calvin drop a ton of passes in his career and yes even some fairly wide open ones. Guess he isn't great in your eyes.

    Goes both ways...but the Romo lovers will always protect the saviour who has taken this team to a grand total of one playoff win in seven years.
