Romo is underrated. He's a very good QB that everyone says sucks. Manning's interception was worse. The receiver ran a bad route for Romo and Trevathan sold out for a big play. It wasn't that bad of a throw. Really if you throw for four TD's or more and lose, it wasn't your fault.

Don't forget the fact that even if the TE makes the catch he's likely sidelined for the game with a concussion after Being lead into the Nacho. I'm just glad Duke let up on the play, and didn't nacho Danny.

This is crap in my opinion. He was crazy hot yesterday, hitting small windows and making great decisions.

Most of the day they were WIDE open but, yes the few times we actually covered he made great throws. I'm just saying give an NFL QB that much time and free release on WR's TE's you'll get carved up and we did. Dallas should win NFC east by 4 games

Yes he's had the game of his life, but at the end of the day, it's still Tony Romo

I'll definitely see when I watch it again, but my memory isn't that there were wide open receivers all day. Sure there were a number of them, but many drives were sustained by Romo making GREAT throws.

Yes. We even had the Good Jake/Bad Jake thing. Obviously I don't mean they are exactly identical, but I think Jake's a good comp for Romo (as I said, BOTH good and bad)

If Romo would've checked down to his RB, Trevethan would've been an idiot (for not covering the right guy. He barely was covering the wrong guy, too. We came up very lucky.

Many of the throws were like these:

Good coverage, better throws.

Looks like the lineman tripped him as he was throwing.

Someone compared his game to a pitcher giving up a homerun to lose a no hitter with two outs in the 9th.

Apt.

Romo's performance yesterday was impressive. However, any time that an individual player does something that directly results in the other team winning the game (such as throwing an INT deep in your own territory with 2 minutes left in the game), it doesn't matter much to the fans what he did the rest of the day, he's still going to be blamed for the loss. It isn't fair, but that's how it is.

That said, everyone (well perhaps everyone other than Cowboys homers) can acknowledge the INT was the result of a great play by Trevathan and really wasn't Romo's fault. The ball was placed where the TE had a chance at catching it if Trevathan had not been quite so fast with his dive.

Well Romo has always been a guy who has showcased elite level talent at the QB position. Why most have dissed him over the years is because he's inconsistent. He'll look lights out one week and then look ordinary the next week. I'll give him props for being on target yesterday. Ask me again in a few weeks when he has a game where he has 3 picks and has 1 TD. It will happen. That's just who he is.

Yep, left tackle pushed backed into Romo's foot as he tried to step into that throw. Probably took some zip off the ball.

That's BS. It was a great play by Trev but it still wasn't a great pass. If the coverage is tight enough to where a defender can intercept the pass, either by cutting in front of the guy or diving for it, none the less that coverage was tight enough to where it's a risky pass. But I will say Romo wasn't the reason they lost the game. Their D gave up 50+ points. You can't look at your QB who threw for 500+ yards and 5 TD's with only 1 pick and say he was the reason we lost the game. The game is 60 minutes long. It all counts, not just the last 2 minutes.

Romo played lights out until an INT at the worst possible time.
He was running for his life, scrambling, seeing the field incredibly well.

Passing like a man possessed, putting the ball in exactly the right spots.

The best he will ever play.


Also he lost. lulz.
