    I agree. I like Romo as much as the next guy, but outside of the Denver game, he hasn't done much of anything.

    You guys continue to ignore the facts. Romo was under heavy pressure, and Dez was double covered. No picture is going to change those facts.

    I really think the offense as a whole has taken a step back this year. I really don't understand the playcalling (how often they run, the types of route combos they use, etc...). It doesn't make sense most of the time. I'm not liking Callahan as the playcaller.

    Im hesitant to be overly critical of Romo. For anyone who watched that Denver game, it should be obvious to them that Romo can still be a heck of a QB. Whats been going on the last two games? No idea. Somethings gotta give. He can make the throws. He's not letting the ball fly for some reason. And dont blame the O line. It hasnt been great but he's had time.

    Romo has struggled a bit here lately, but so has the OL. Early in the season the OL was completely shutting people down, but lately they've been allowing a lot of pressure up the middle (which IMO rattles a QB more than blind side hits).

    Now with Waters out? Be ready to watch Romo taking a BEATING from hits up the middle.

    yea, with waters out, we're talking about a whole new ball game here. But i still dont buy that romo has 0 time to complete passes out there. That's some what of an excuse for him

    They had a saftey over the top on his TD passes to. Some times you have to let it fly.

    Dooley- hated that hire.
    I disliked him in Tennessee...
    I like him less in Dallas.
    I was truly sad to see Robinson retire.

    I think that's only part of it. He should have been targeted more, but Romo was also under a bit of pressure. That Fairely had at least 2 clean shots at Romo, saw a few others where a blitzer came quick. I saw DET playing Dallas the way KC did where they go w/ a bit of man coverage, let their LBs drop to take away the intermediate passes and let their Dline and maybe one blitzer put pressure on the QB.

    It worked for them. It's still no excuse for 6targets. If Romo's getting pressured the you roll him out of the pocket...we dont' see much of that anymore.

    Everyone is talking about romo's progressions and reads. Now i never played football so i may be putting my foot in my mouth here, but how is Dez Bryant not your FIRST OPTION?

    That's the difference between stafford and romo. We seen it in the game. Romo barely targeted dez instead we tried to get cute and go to twill. Stafford went at CJ all day and just let him make play after play. Especially since we did nothing to stop it.

    The pictures show dez was not doubled. Romo flat out missed him. Why go to such lengths to defend him? The eye in the sky don't lie.

    It comes down to play design and how long it takes a certain route to develop

    Stafford threw almost twice as many passes with no pressure as Romo did in that game, for almost twice as many yards.

    Stafford
    Pressured (29%): 4 of 12 88 yd 0 td 1 int 25.7 (2 runs, 1 sack)
    No pressure (71%): 29 of 36 400 yd 1 td 1 int 110.6

    Romo
    Pressured (41%): 1 of 11 1 yd 0 td 0 int 39.6 (2 runs, 0 sacks)
    No pressure (59%): 13 of 19 205 yd 3 td 0 int 143.6

    We because we run our offense thru the TE so we run our offense inside out instead of outside in.

    You're right, it's called being pressured almost half of the time you throw the ball.
