    This was posted beside Dallas' Power ranking this week on ESPN. I'm not knocking Romo by no means, just wanted to share since they must dig deep to come up with a stat like this....

    "Tony Romo has six interceptions during the past three seasons that have dropped Dallas' win probability by at least 20 percent. Matt Schaub and Eli Manning (seven) have the most."

    I don't think anyone can argue against Tony's ill-timed interceptions at this point. Not anyone.

    I won't argue against them but when Romo has to be flawless for the team to stand a chance, every INT is ill-timed.

    The timing of every INT is bad, though there is no denying Tony has had some late game gaffes.

    However, that stat is bogus. I dont even know how you come up with something like that.

    Yeah, like the Washington game. Romo was flawless, let me tell you.

    I'm sorry but when your QB goes 5 TD to 1 INT and 500+ yards with a 150 QB rating, you shouldn't lose the game, regardless of when the interception is thrown.

    When your team is in a contest of "whoever has the ball last wins", there's something wrong with the defense, not the quarterback who's in the middle of outplaying Peyton Manning.

    I have no idea what they mean by this stat. How on earth do they calculate that? Romo's choked a # of times, but he's an amatuer compared to Schaub when it comes to throwing away games. Seems like Schaub is throwing a crippling pick on a weekly basis. The interception he threw against Seattle might be a season killer for them. And they don't have the luxury of playing in the NFCE.

    They will defend Tony if the INT isn't his fault.

    Does anyone even know what this means? In general, every giveaway is bad and every takeaway is good. Even I, as a mere fan, understand this. But, what is a 20% loss in "win probability". It sounds like nonsense to me.

    Maybe, if this wasn't something that had plagued Tony's career for years. Not one game. Tony didn't lose the game. But his interception sealed it. Period. Now /thread

    So it wasn't an ill-timed interception? As opposed to say, an interception in the second quarter when you're leading by 14?

    There's plenty who do argue against it. There's a lot of FANS who are in denial.

    It was an ill-advised throw. What was ill-timed was two of his linemen taking him out on the throw and Escobar not running the route correctly. With those two things happening, there no telling what the result would have been otherwise. Those are pretty big parts of what happened on that play.

    Thankfully, we only have to deal with it for another season or two.

    Fact: Romo threw a pick at the worst possible time, regardless of your list of excuses.
    Fact: He has a history of doing so.

    That's all this thread is about and it is indisputable. This thread is not about how the rest of the team played. We aren't talking about the why or the how. Those things are pertinent in other discussions but not this one.

    I repeat: Tony's play didn't lose us the game, but his interception sealed it. Fact.
