    No, bottom line is he was never as good as fans thought he was and we should have never given him that huge contract.

    If you look through my post history, I have been a huge supporter of Romo, but you can't excuse this. Yeah, he made bonehead mistakes, throwing into triple and double coverage, but that isn't exactly what concerns me. What concerns me is that he has no zip on any of his passes. He was really inaccurate on DUMP OFF passes. He can't generate power from his hips to fire the ball.

    Andrew Luck just threw his second pick. What a bum. He's got to be done. Get rid of him. We want Painter!

    so lets see that 101 ints

    an 23 fumbles lost

    in 10 years

    Plus he can not throw the deep ball any more plus no zip on it either - that one to Harris was Harris's doing

    the back must be worse than we know

    YES HE DOES LOOK LIKE 34 YEAR OLD OLD MAN

    And I am no Manziel fan by any stretch, and I am glad saner heads prevailed, but we have been very delinquent in drafting his replacement coming off back problems at this age. He looked old today.

    Off tipped passes to wide open receivers. If you can't see the difference between this and randomly chucking it up off your back foot to Witten in triple coverage in the end zone, you should probably just quit watching football.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger Romo homer than me, but today was pretty worrisome. If it doesn't get better pretty fast, I'm thinking it may never get better.

    Ugh. I sure hope that's not the case though.

    That had nothing to do with it. He pressed and he didn't have his usual magic. I fault him more for pushing than for the actual throws. They could have won the game had they called a better game and he didn't make some really stupid stupid mistakes. Why in the hell they insisted on throwing the ball inside the five yard line with their run game mystifies me. They got behind and Romo pressed more and failed even worse. It happens on occasion even with the best of them. He sucked and really bad. It's not the first time he has looked that bad and it won't be the last. Fortunately it hasn't happened often.

    What's the story on Church and the other walking wounded?

    You're right. He under threw a lot of passes today and was off the mark. He looked better at first. Was there some point when he could've been injured via a sack?

    What's more stupid - drafting Johnny Manziel in the first round, or giving a 34-year-old Tony Romo with a bad back $100 million?

    I don't know. Do you think the Witten end zone pick was a failed throw away attempt that he couldn't get enough power on? It seemed so odd to throw into triple coverage on that play.

    What a crock, the line was awesome until Romo over and over, put them into one dimensional no win situations with all of his ill conceived throws. Murray averaged over 5 yds a carry and his single turnover was forced by the pressure of 3-4 guys colliding with him. He made amends and got tough yardage nearly every down thereafter. Tony on the other hand, made devastating un-forced errors series after series, serving up his top receivers in the process.

    Tony singlehandedly lost a winnable game.

    6 one way, half dozen the other.

    However, completely stupid is giving Romo $100M and THEN drafting Manziel.

    I could see us winning 0-5 games. 5 is being generous. I would hope
    Agreed. Whatever is wrong with him they will have to adjust the play calling to that. He needs to throw safe passes and let Dez and company get YAC, and run the ball, a lot.

    This. He lost the mobility that made him successful. This is the beginning of the end. We saw it with Aikman in 1999, and White in 1986. Yes both came back the following year but they were never the same. Romo was very good at improvising and playing street ball. He's now a pocket passer and he doesn't have the arm strength to pull it off.

    I guess it could be a bad pass for other reasons not bringing the decision to throw into the picture at all. That's a whole different problem. He had a bad day with his decisions. I suppose maybe the throws would have been better assuming no injury or other problem if indeed there's a physical problem.

    You think he looks ok? Physically ok? Cause I don't.
