I don't get the feeling we'll see a response. lol
I'd need to see a replay but I don't think this was a three stop and throw like a slant would be. If I remember correctly, there was enough time for him to use Witten to look some coverage off beasley, Tanner was in blocking for a second or two before he came out and they were putting pressure up the middle.
I'm not saying Tanner did the right thing and I don't think that it's a big deal Romo threw the pass. Just saying I don't think it's out of the question for your QB to widen his vision a bit on a crossing route.
This. Every week in the NFL there are interceptions that bounce off hands, that involve a receiver running the wrong route, and yes, believe it or not, involve a QB making a poor decision or a poor throw.
That happens to Romo sometimes too, but not as often as some of his fans want to believe.
Personally, I am more proud of this season's performance by Romo than any season he has played for us. He is taking great care of the football. I don't give a rip whether he throws for 500 yards or 200, I don't care if he throws 5 TD's or 1.... I care that we WIN.
Winning isn't all on him, but winning is more on the QB than any other position because the ball is in his hands every play and he makes so many decisions for the offensive side of the ball.
I am excited to win a game like we did yesterday. It wasn't his best day. He wasn't flashy. But he made the plays that allowed us to win.
Except, Tanner did do the wrong thing. He and Romo both said so.
Sorry I mis-typed that. Meant to say I'm not saying Tanner did the right thing. It is absolutely clear that Tanner ran the wrong route. Fixed the post.
What's your point? Learn football.
The media has misrepresented Romo's ability and success to the point where other media and fans feel the need to defend him even as a knee jerk. Truth is, he is a damn good QB and does make mistakes but all of us who understand hat we have a good QB should actually just ignore the noise. Personally, it is not easy to do for me but I can keep the haters in the appropriate context which is..... ignorant. I do support criticism of Romo where it is warranted and do not want to be hypocritical about being able to express opinions but using the criticism to paint him as a choker or having issues in big games is just an embarrassing display of football IQ.
As a follow up. If we are going to make a note for every time a receiver messes up and Romo has to take the credit for it on his stats sheet, then will we also note every time a throw is not in the best place and a receiver makes a very good catch and Romo gets the credit for it? Because yesterday that was happening a lot also. I saw SEVERAL plays where the ball was behind receivers, or the throw was short, and receivers made good plays on the ball. Remember, he got the completion and the yardage for those plays too.
Romo has good vision hell he take many busted plays and make big plays out of them. Tanner ran the wrong rout and it cost them. Romo will take the hit from the critics after all that is what the critics do they go after Romo with a a fricken clue. Hell I'm shocked Romo is not getting ripped for throwing more ints than TD in the game even if one was a hail mary.
Like I said, he had time to adjust. Most Qb's do.
You also said you thought he was throwing to Tanner.
Surely you have to know that ball would have been completely behind Beasley with a defender right there? Again, Romo saw Tanner and threw to him, it was just late, not as late as the throw to Beasly would have been. I agree Tanner was in the wrong spot, but Romo was off as where a lot of his passes yesterday. Watch the 22 and get back to me, with you're football IQ.
Ya, he was throwing to Beasley who would have caught it.
This is your mulligan for the day
It ain't got nothing to do with learning football. Whether its a wrong route or whatever. Someone feels the need to explain it, and it bothers me.
No, he wasn't. He was throwing to Beasley. Tanner (and thus also the guy covering him) ran in front of the throw because he didn't run the route the correct direction.
So knowing what happened on a play bothers you? How do you go through life like that?
The play is over, don't really care about it. Just stop with the explanations. Is it a nit picking complaint? probably so.
Maybe you should just stop listening to post-game press conferences, as well as any and every interview conducted during the week...
