Stephen White @sgw94 3h For the record the Lions didnt do anything special to take Dez away unless you call cover 2 special. And....he was open a lot. Lions played some kind of zone coverage with two deep safeties AND the MLB covering short middle. Deep middle wide open a ton and Romo didnt go there but Once to Dez on a deep in route. Dez open deep middle Romo doesn't see him https://gamerewind.nfl.com pic.twitter.com/IoITNEnRcG Similar route combo later. Romo sees Dez and hits him for a nice gain https://gamerewind.nfl.com pic.twitter.com/55VJqYCCWq Blitz coming Dez has the whole middle to work Romo doesn't see him. https://gamerewind.nfl.com pic.twitter.com/MZ855dxoIV Go route and safety to Dez stops his peddle. Romo doesnt go to him. https://gamerewind.nfl.com pic.twitter.com/18Crldkf9x Joshua Cruz @thejcruz89 3h @sgw94 @sgw94 @espn_macmahon man under and a man over top you guys can't be serious right? Stephen White @sgw94 3h @thejcruz89 @espn_macmahon they hit the same route vs same coverage later for 17. That safety has no shot there. Other safety jumped a route If you doubt Dez was open this is the sideline view of him clearing zone LB https://gamerewind.nfl.com pic.twitter.com/dJWM9oMKMR Stephen White @sgw94 3h Theres a reason Tampa 2 was invented. Because if you run cover 2 and your MLB doesn't drop to deep middle that area is open. For the record Im not calling Romo out as much as im saying, yes Dez was open. I don't know Romo's progressions.
