Default Tony Romo respect

Now that some time has passed and my a-hole has de-clenched, I'd like to say that I've never had much respect for Tony Romo, but he played a HELL of a game yesterday. I have not seen many QBs be as accurate, not to mention precise, as he was yesterday. I'll no longer be calling him Tony Homo.

But, in true Romo fashion, INT at a crucial moment of the game.

Yeah, that was pretty ill-timed. But Trevathan made a HELL of a play on that ball:

Well, yeah...but it's not entirely fair that he gets the lion's share of the blame here versus the defense.

If we lose that game, our defense is blamed.

Romo was ****ing awesome yesterday. He was houdini in the pocket and was hitting guys with pinpoint accuracy all day long. People hate on Tony Carter without mentioning that Romo threw an absolute perfect ball.

Aside from the pick, he played as close to perfect as you'll see a QB play.

And he still lost.

So many of those passes were just perfect. The defense had it's holes....but some of those huge plays were simply perfect passes, it's hard to defend the perfect pass. A few of the shorter ones were miraculous as well, running and falling away from defenders and right on the money to moving targets.

Wow. I was impressed with the play when I saw it - cut under, dive and catch is awesome - but check out Trevathan taking a step or 2 to the other side when the TE makes his cut and then he recovers and makes the play.

Not sure why people always hate on Romo. You'd think people who watch enough football would know better by now.

any qb who throws for 500+ yards and 5 TD's, yet still loses, cannot be blamed. late pick or not, the fact that he scored 48 pts and needed to come from behind to win is ridiculous. (same with our team, for that matter). if peyton didnt come back to win he wouldnt take ANY blame after his game, and his stats were not as good as romos.

I can't stand Dallas. Why couldn't Romo play this way against kc? Where was Dez Bryant then? Where was Witten? They are such an inconsistent team. They should be running away from the pack in the NFCE yet they just refuse to play consistently good football. They have an epic game agains the Broncos for absolutely no apparent reason other than they want to prove to everyone that they are better than the Broncos. All they have to do is have this attitude every single game and they'd be a force to be reckoned with.

A friend of mine is a Cowboy fan. He is sick of Romo and has for a few years now and doesn't see them ever going far with him at QB. He says he can look great for stretches of games, but makes the critical mistake in big games too often and right on cue, does it again yesterday. When one looks at his career, bad things seem to happen to him when all eyes are on him. He reminds me of Danny White, another Dallas QB who put up really good numbers, but never could get his team to the Super Bowl.

Living here in the DFW area, I HATE the Cowboys! I'm glad he tossed a pick to end their drive/chance to go ahead. Romo is consistent in his brain farts to cost him a chance to either win, or give his FG kicker a chance to win.

Prior to that, sure, he did great, but all it takes is one bad throw as we saw!

Romo completely reminds me of Plummer, both the good and the bad. Romo, I think, is a little more talented (or at least gives a crap in practice to account for the difference) and has much better weapons around him. Can play lights out or throw 4 picks. Plays great only to have a bone head late game mishap (though Jake's got the edge here).

A rich man's version but definitely. Perfect analogy.

Not a great throw, but a hell of a play by big Danny T. If he drops that pick, i doubt anyone holds it against him.

Looking at the gif today, it's not a bad read/throw by Romo at all. The TE catches Trevathan leaning/stepping the wrong way at the top of his break, most of the time that is a safe throw to make. He throws it low too. It is just a fantastic play by The Trevenator (yeah, that's awful, he does need a nickname though).

Romo shoulda tossed it to the back, he was not covered, but fewer yards. Looked like he had made his mind up before scanning the field better. Kinda locked in to him, he does that at times.

If Romo hits Murray instead, he goes for some decent yardage. Trevathan makes a great play, but Romo made a terrible decision.

This is where I blame Romo for that int. 2nd and 16, dump it to Murray and pick it up 8-10 yards. Then you have a 3rd 6-8. Instead, he steps up and throws that ball awkwardly to the TE with no zip. Just stupid decision making right there and careless with the ball.

You have respect for a guy who had 8 hrs to throw and WR and TE's open by 10 yds or more most of the day. He feasted on a bad D yesterday. Most QB's could have put up those numbers in that situation.

You're comparing him to THE Jake Plummer who holds the Broncos record for most consecutive passes without an interception? I agree Romo has better weapons around him. Jake did more with less.
