Some are trying to say that. I mentioned Romo's 3rd int vs Washington with just over 3 minutes to play in the season finale and you immediately pointed to the defense for a roughing the passer penalty when they were stuck trying to defend a short field with time running down. You could have admitted Romo made a critical mistake but instead pointed to the defense for committing a penalty and not being able to make a stop. This is what FANS do if someone points to an obvious mistake by Romo they'll immediately start pointing the finger at another player or the defense. Romo AND the defense were at fault vs Washington and it cost the Cowboys the game. A lot of FANS try and take most of the blame off of Romo by pointing the finger at others when he deserves as much of the blame as everyone else. If the QB is playing well the play of their team usually elevates. This is why Denver was so successful with Tebow in 2011 his leadership got players to step up. Romo's leadership has always been in question even former players like Emmitt have questioned the leadership on the team. Although Emmitt never pointed the finger at Romo it was a knock on him because he asked where's the leadership on the team. It all comes down to a team believing in their QB especially during crunch time and some have questioned including a few experts and players around the league if the players around Romo believe in him. All facets do have to play well for a team to have success but it does start with the QB playing well. If the QB starts going bad and turning the ball over it can have a big impact on the performance of a team. You can't keep putting your defense on the field due to repeated turnovers and expect them to hold up. No question the Cowboys defense has been a big issue but having to defend 22 turnovers by their QB last season didn't help their cause.
