Default The forgotten hero in the Cowboys win

On just a 3-man rush he pushed back the LT Tyron Smith all the way back into Tony Romo and Romo tripped on his LT's foot which aided the interception by Danny.

#57 LB/DE Adrian Robinson



May be a nobody to most of us (even though he has been game activated the last 4 weeks) but let this thread at least show the appreciation for that 1 play he made.

Indeed. Props to Adrian Robinson. Without him collapsing the left side of that pocket, Romo never throws that pick.

...but it was a good read and a good throw.

Just an incredible break on the ball by Trev

He should have thrown it to the check down RB. He was not covered. Plus it was only 2nd down.

Romo tried to force a throw to show his heroics and like allways, it cost his team a possible win.

Good for us though.

It actually was a good read. The Tight End has inside leverage on Trevathon and there is too much field between Escobar and the next defender for them to make a play on the pass. If Romo is able to step into that throw, the ball gets there before Trev can make a play on it.

I disagree. Romo was going through his progressions. Bryant was his first option, Escobar his second and the Running Back checkdown was his third. If you watch the video you see him check to his receivers first before he goes to the Tight End, who is open on the play. The irony is, if Trev has better coverage on Escobar, Romo probably does dump it off to the check down. But Robinson forces the LT into Romo during the pass which takes enough off of the throw for Trev to make a very athletic play on it.

Only Rev would say a game changing, game losing INT was a good read and a good throw

Not unlike the fact that Tony Carter played good defense on the long pass play. Sometimes the other guys simply do it better.

Possibly, but it's also likely if it's out in front that Duke or Rahim get there. Both aren't nearly as far out as it looks in that gif (watch the yard markers).

The bottomline: Trevathan made a great play with the game on the line and I'm thankful for it.

I think Unrein (or is it Wolfe?) made the appearance that he was about to get sacked. Romo made a good throw but Danny made an incredible play.

Sorry Rev, I just always assume you have your snark font active.

No doubt Trevathan makes an incredible athletic play to swing the game for us. I'm not trying to take anything away from him. But that pass is dying at the end like a vintage Pedro Martinez change-up. There is more than enough praise to go around to heap some on Robinson for his contributions to that play.

I still don't get why Romo makes that throw. Look to the left. Demarco is wide open for the dump off with what looks to be a lot of open field in front of him.

Romo is progressing through his reads, deep to shallow, which is the way the play was drawn up. If he had determined that Escobar was covered and progressed to his next read, or there had been a blitz on requiring him to hit the hot route, he probably would have dumped off to Demarco.

While it won't affect the full-scope of the roster, Bailey returning will necessitate clearing another ACTIVE roster spot which is a big deal in its own right.

I'd guess that Lenon gets cut and Jammer goes inactive. With injuries it's such murky water to try and predict.

Agreed. Murray was wide open, and would have gotten more yards.
Thanks, Tony.

There was time on the clock, our D was beat up and pourous... the better choice would have been the 4-5 yards on the check down.

It is always situational, to me, you go conservative on that drive and get into field goal position...

Thanks KevinJames for the Robinson acknowledgement. I had no idea he was even in on that play.

Like some have said, I credit Trevathan with a great play more than Romo for a bad INT. Yes, he could have checked it down, but Escobar was open after he broke right and most of the time that's a completed pass. But Trevathan, recovered much quicker than anyone expected and closed like a ****ing rocket. Even then he had to make a tremendous diving interception.

I think another unsung hero was Shaun Phillips. On the play prior to the intercept, Shaun sacked Romo, putting the cowpokers in the hole and giving Romo a case of the happy feet on the next play.

If I remember right, that was pretty much a coverage sack. Like most the sacks we're getting this year.
