Sorry, that's not it. Your quarterback has a history of getting the yips at the worst possible time. Plays an amazing game, and when it comes time to cash the check, he blows it EVERY SINGLE TIME.

no dog in the hunt, but that was an AWESOME game.  well, as a Raiders fan i kind have a dog in the hunt and was pulling for Dallas, but still......great game.

IN the second quarter, George Selvie grabbed Peyton Manning by the facemask and turned his head 180 degrees.  Before the next play Manning turned his uniform around and played backwards for the rest of the game.  He threw 3 more touchdown passes and ran a naked reverse backwards bootleg for another.  Simply amazing.

The fact that the George Selvie was on the field trying to stop Peyton Manning might be part of the Cowboys' problem

No he doesn't.  He actually comes through often in those situations - typically 6 of the Cowboy's wins each year.  The problem is he's put in that situation nearly every week.  His offense scored 48 points, he threw for 500 yards and a 5/1 TD-INT ratio.  His interception cost the Cowboys 3 points.  The defense allowed 51 points (48 if you put those last three on Romo), and didn't force a single punt in 60 minutes of football.

It's the height of irrationality to blame him for this one.  I don't defend Romo often, but if your offense scores 48 in the modern NFL, you've done your job and then some.  No equivocations.

If it was an NFL conspiracy, then the Dallas defense must be on the take.  How else do you explain allowing a 147 year old man run a naked bootleg into the endzone.

Yeah he makes his share of mistakes but he also makes broken plays work that most guys couldn't.  For some reason people remember all the late mistakes and forget the drives to take the lead, and arbitrarily assign "big game" status to games like this one that barely actually matter.  It's week 5 and the NFC East is historically terrible as a whole, so all they did is lose to a team that will go 4-0 against their division anyway.

He's Favre lite, with fewer dick pics (that we know of).

I think it would have been a completion if he hadn't stepped on someone's foot as he was trying to throw. either he didn't have the awareness to see that he wasn't going to have room or he should have known he wouldn't be able to make the throw. It was a dumb throw in a tie game that directly led to the winning score. Would it have even been close if he wasn't playing out of his mind the rest of the game? No. But he still can't make that throw there.
 
2013-10-09 11:19:15 AM  
Romo is the anti-Manning Jr.

Seriously, Eli plays like shiat for 48 minutes, but if the defense can manage to keep it close he's going to pull something out of his ass in the last 2 and win the game.

Romo on the other hand plays amazing for 48 minutes, but if the defense allows the game to remain close he's going to figure out a way to go FUBAR in those same 2 minutes.

If you could combine the two you'd have a great QB.   As it is you have 2 that make people scratch their head in how one has 2 SBs and SB MVPs and the other has 1 playoff win.

He was thinking "If I throw it away, it is 3rd and 16, and we are screwed.  If I take a sack, it is 3rd and 25 and we are screwed.  Let me try to zip it in.  Damn, I stumbled right when I threw."

Yes but he should have been thinking "let me dump it off to the RB on a much easier throw who doesn't have a defender in his hip pocket." Yes, the LB made a hell of a play to get the INT but it would have been fairly routine to get a deflection.

I couldn't make it through more than 45 seconds of this video due to his yelling at the camera, but I see he has other YouTube hits such as "Dallas Cowboys to end Syrian War!", "TSA Agent Grabbed My Nutts!!!!!", "Micheal Jordan's Secret Son Speaks Out", and "Top Ten Reasons to Move to Texas".

Agree. Look at the crap Cowboys defenses over the last 7-8 years and you could argue he does his job well and does it often, he's just routinely put in sysiphean situations. The late-game INTs? Yeah, they're high-profile, but always happen? Romo has the best passer rating in the fourth quarter among active quarterbacks(five points better than the #2 guy, Aaron Rodgers).

The one year Dallas had a decent defense was 2009, and he won a playoff game. Go figure.

All true. Can't argue with facts.

But c'mon. Don't tell me that 90% of people watching that game saw Tony Romo take the ball on that drive and go "Well, here comes a pick".

You can try to fight perceptions, but you usually lose.
 
2013-10-09 12:22:13 PM  
Romo threw for 506 yards and got them 48 points while tearing apart the Broncos secondary. Against ANY other team in the league, that would have been a win, by a handy margin, and the pic would have been irrelevant.

Dallas's D needed to make *A* stop, and they didn't. You cannot fault someone who was playing at a level higher than the arguably best QB in the game this year. 

Romo has his faults, but while this is common to what he normally does, the loss was not his fault.

2013-10-09 12:39:54 PM  
Plus, take a close look at the route that the rookie TE ran. He rainbowed up in an arc.

Had he come down the the line, flat, his body would have blocked out the LB and, at least, made it a not-INT.

It wasn't JUST Tony on that play.

It was also the footwork of one of his linemen at the same time he threw.

There's plenty of blame to go around for that giveaway, it wasn't only Romo.
 
2013-10-09 12:45:24 PM  
In the thread during that game about six people either called it directly before it happened or said something like "this is your chance to prove them all wrong" depending upon their rooting interests I suppose. But right or wrong it IS enough of a "thing" that everyone everywhere including the broadcast booth and FARK recognized the conditions were just right before it actually happened.

You know New Orleans is about 500 miles from Dallas.  It is 520 driving per google, but is almost exactly 500 "as the crow flys".

When Brees farks up a game, and this does happen, he farks it up from the start with missed passes and interceptions. Then next game he is back to being Brees.

Totally fair, but to be fair across the board the defense is also culpable. Particularly one that allows 48 points up to the pick as the Cowboys were making Romo put the ball up almost 40 times.  At that point they were begging for the statistical probability of an eventual INT -- especially when the opposing D is playing pass and the O-line was starting to break down (Romo was sacked the play before the interception). I don't have the numbers in front of me but I'm led to believe that this scenario is usually the case in all the other games where Romo throws late picks.

That being said, as a Bronco fan it didn't suck when that INT happened. If Di Atribe is reading this, sorry about that.

/well, not too sorry.

RG3 is too early, though he had 3 4th quarter combacks and 2 GW drives last year.

Rivers I agree with, Cam Newton I agree with, but Matt Ryan?  Dude as 2 less 4th quarter comebacks and 4 more GW drives than Romo in 4 less years of work.   Game on the line the stats say Ryan over Romo.

Tony Romo has six interceptions during the past three seasons that have dropped Dallas' win probability by at least 20 percent. Matt Schaub and Eli Manning (seven) have the most.
