    Jerry told Romo he was a ingredient of the special sauce.

    Well at one point Romo was one of the deadliest QB out of the pocket. We used to run play action alot during the day when Garrett wasn't here. Romo's biggest plays also came from broken coverage.

    This offense has restricted Romo from what he does best. It has made him a pocket passer.

    That's a biggie but also som don't run routes as well as we'd like. Also Dez is more like TO than Irvin although he's a lot more like Irvin than TO was. Does that make sense?

    Yep. We have become a pass happy shotgun offense. I think over 70% of our plays came from shotgun last week. No threat of running and a severe lack of playaction. The draw that worked so well has disappeared as well.

    Callahan was just to convenient. For years most of us have said hell no to gruden/Callahan. If you have watched them they both have an offense that goes sideways. Now we have Callahan and the offense looks to be just like those gruden/Callahan offenses.

    The team had an opportunity to hire Pete Carmichael, they didn't.

    Carmichael made tons of sense, he is used to a vertical aggressive pass game with a power running game. It's the scenario romo played best in, think 06,07.

    Hiring a competent defensive staff has shown up immediately.

    The offensive staff was not upgraded. Giving the keys to Callahan, hiring frank pollack and promoting Wes frigging Phillips did not upgrade the staff.

    Putting Pete Carmichael in charge of the offense would have.

    Hopefully they turn it around and I think romo will adjust it himself when healthy and be more aggressive but if not its just another wasted season on a unit filled with talent.

    Marc columbo said on the radio pregame two weeks ago that against certain teams he would allow rushers to beat him inside intentionally and then push them past romo so romo would roll to his right because he was at his best on the move to the right.

    It seems like things are getting worse. Against the Giants we got three points from the first three turnovers.

    I mentioned that too the other day. I can't find the link but after the game he said he made adjustments during the game and when it came up again he handled it. It was encouraging to hear him adjusting and improving that quickly.

    Yeah, I'll give you that but that doesn't excuse the failure of the offense overall for several years.

    Romo will be fine, Garrets offense hasn't restricted Romo in 6 years, why all of a sudden does it? People forget the guy is taking pain killing injections for an injury right now and that may have something to do with it. Give them a chance to get in a rythm an let's see what happens, it's only been 2 games.

    Amen! We need to cut this QB who's playing with banged up ribs, it's obvious his ribs are making him play even better then his usual self, and he STILL stinks! Why couldn't we pick up a guy like Alex Smith! The only thing Alex Smith needs is great coaching, great running backs, great defense, and overall a great team.

    Those things are really easy to come by as well, but no our front office wanted to sign a dude who's been carried by our team for his entire career. He only has one of the best QBR ever because of his elite defense, elite running game, elite defense, and his elite coaching staff.

    I've had this exact same thought. Bet you the main reason Callahan wasn't allowed to go full West Coast was that they didn't want a transition period with the players, especially Dez. Maybe there was some factor in Garrett not thinking in that "language", too, though he doesn't seem to ever insert himself and make play calls himself.

    But funny, Andy Reid put in the West Coast in one offseason and the Chiefs seem to be doing fine.

    Andy Reid is who I wanted this offseason.

    A lot of Cowboy fans didnt want him. I can understand not wanting him if you just don't like him because he was a Eagle but I really do think some people didn't want him because they actually think Jason is a better coach.

    I'm talking about the passing game. Obviously, nothing about a two-week sample size and an injured QB in 2013 excuses being 20th in the red zone and 30th in rushing TD in other seasons, but the question then would be to what degree restrictions on Romo affect either of those.
