It’s Not all Romo’s Fault in Dallas

Another year, another bad December for the Dallas Cowboys.

Another year, another dose of bad play from QB Tony Romo.

However, in his defense, it is not all his fault.  I could point to a lot of things that are wrong with the Cowboys, from the defense and injuries to coaching – in this case, BAD coaching.

I understand why coach Jason Garrett still has a job – he’s only been on the job for a season and a half.  But his dubious in-game coaching decisions have cost him at least one game this season.  Who could have forgotten the time when Garrett iced HIS OWN KICKER in Arizona?  Win that game and there would not have been a need to win the last game of the season.

Also, what happened to that “vaunted” Rob Ryan defense?  The D was so porous, I along with 10 random cats could have hung 20 points on Dallas.  Granted there was no offseason workouts and minicamps thanks to that stupid lockout, but Ryan did not get the job done.

Can Romo play better?  Sure.

I’m just saying there are more problems in Dallas that supersedes Romo.  So it’s time to lay off the Romo criticism – for now…

  1. I agree, and I still think Romo is overrated/lame.

  2. Romo screwed up a couple of games for them, but he saved them in more. He came back with broken ribs and took down San Francisco on their field. Not many other QBs can say that. No, Romo’s not the problem. Their secondary is AWFUL, every bit as bad as the Giants made them look Sunday night. Their offensive line is young and old, and if they could run block or protect Romo for any extended period, this team would put up points with anyone.

    If there is a brain to be found in the Cowboys’ management (a big if) there will be a HUGE emphasis on defense.
