    Most interesting point was on Chaz Green.

    Garrett admitted they screwed up Green's development by moving him to LG.

    Think how consequential that was. Besides screwing the season, it screwed our presumed franchise QB in a lasting way.

    I wonder how early in Romo's career he was changing plays. We tend to compare 12 years to Prescott's 2.5 a lot around here.

    Yes. The kid has a internal clock of about 2 seconds now before he panics. Screwed up green and Dak in one game. I am not sure Dak will ever be the same.

    I am guessing he don’t change the play much. A fee times here and there. I notice he turns his back to the defense when he does it. I think Romo used to yell kill kill. Dak seemed to try it more last year.

    I wonder how Dak changed plays compared to the way Staubach changed plays?

    Changing plays at the line is why JG wanted Romo gone.. Dak was given a very limited playbook in 2016 and basically told to run the plays as called, with Romo and Sanchez calling out protection and wrinkles from sidelines.

    Dak is trying to change plays at the line but can't read a defence.. there were two occasions last week where he changed the play negatively straight into the D's plans.

    I wish he would of changed the 3rd and 1 in OT. There were 7 defenders in the box and only 5 blockers.

    Played had no shot before it was snapped.

    Romo actually had an uncanny knack for reading defenses, even relatively early in his career.

    Unfortunately, Dak doesn't recognize defenses very well yet and opts to avoid killing playcalls.

    Assuming Dak is permitted to continue his career much longer, he should improve that in time.

    I tend to believe Parcells when it comes to Romos Football intelligence as he was quoted as saying Romo was one of the smartest Qb’s he’s ever coached.....so yeah Romo is superior in football acumen to Dakota.

    Only a matter of time till Romo will be the Cowboys next head coach and find us a franchise quarterback

    That’s the good thing about being on the internet.
    We can just openly speculate and ask agenda driven rhetorical questions which says so much without having to say anything provable.

    Changing plays is a chess game. The key to changing the play is to do it late enough that the defense doesn't have time to react. Same for changing or disguising the defensive call. Many, many fans complained about Romo running the clock down, but that was by design.

    By the way, I read at the time that the 2015 play against Philly that Romo was injured on, he had changed the play and protection. The Philly D had a hot read that if Dallas was in a particular set, they would blitz. Changing the play led to Romo being hurt.

    Exactly. That's what most of CowboysZone is - pure speculation based on one's preconceived beliefs.
