    For the record, I actually agree with putting Romo back in, assuming he was healthy. I'm not arguing with that, but it should be the coach's decision. Not Dr. Jerry's.

    This actually makes me feel a little sorry for Garrett.

    TMI Jerry? If nothing else, why not just say "After discussing it with Tony Jason and I conferred and decided to put Tony back in the game."

    Jerry's a real jackass sometimes. But if Garrett can live with it, I suppose I can too.

    I was on the fence about it. It's the type of situation that kills Tony 90% of the time.
    If that had been Weeden in there the play calling would have been different and we might have rode Murray to a win.
    But we will never know for sure so..........

    It's mind boggling. I don't think anybody would argue that Tony is far superior to Weeden when all things are equal but the fact of that matter is that Tony scored 7 points as QB and Weeden scored 10 in a pinch hitting role.

    I thought it was a mistake to put Tony back in last night and I think it was a mistake to do it this morning. I've heard all the pundits say that if he was healthy, he should be playing but I don't see any way that you could look at Tony last night and come away thinking he was healthy. He struggled to drive the ball more then 20 yards downfield.

    IMO, we should have gone with Weeden and saved Tony to fight another day. It's done now.

    What he meant to say was I told Jason to put Romo back in.

    This is why in many instances it's hard to criticize Garett for some decisions because you honestly don't know when/if he's making the decision(s) in question.

    The way I read it, it seemed like Jerry was just relaying news. Like telling Garrett Romo would be able to play not forcing Garrett to put him back in. I'm not saying it's what happened or that the other way didn't.

    I agree 100%, he was too stiff to move and the way they were blitzing Weeden at the time was the better choice.
