I agree with the Tony Romo-Jake Plummer comparisons and have used it here many times. Romo really is Jake with a slightly better arm.
Romo's INT was worse because of when it was thrown, and where his team was on the field. You just cant do what he did. Take the sack, throw it away, whatever, but you dont give Peyton half the field with 2 minutes to go in a tie game.

Another factor that plays into this is the team Romo plays on.
How many owners of NFL teams had a presser right after their game yesterday?
How many wives of QBs on other teams were shown by cameramen reacting to every other play in the stands yesterday?
The Cowboys are the Kardashians of the NFL. Its pathetic.

Agreed. What can one do though? Apparently they are America's team. I don't remember registering for that. Don't question the NFL though.

I absolutely detest the Cowboys but I've never had a problem with Romo. He's had a good year and yesterday was remarkable. But I have to admit, I, along with I'm sure many other Bronco fans was sitting there thinking, why can't Romo be Romo.....and he was. Thank you!

Um... I didn't say it was a "great pass" -- I said it was placed where the TE could have had a chance at catching it had Trevathan not been quite so quick with his dive for the ball. The point was that -- IMHO -- the INT was more due to a very good defensive play than a boneheaded throw by the QB. Sure, there was room for better decision-making and a better throw by Romo. That's by no means an easy INT for the defense, however. Trevathan deserves a lot of credit for making it happen. The outcome of the game was determined by that single play.

I don't think that the throw or decision were bad so much as it was an epic play by Trevathan.

Watching it again in slow motion, it would have been a perfect pass against probably 95% of the LBs in the league.

The rest of your post I agree with wholeheartedly.

Where should he have thrown it? That's a perfect pass against a vast majority of LBs in the league. He leads his receiver any more and Duke destroys him.

Absolutely CORRECT. When Romo released Trev was still turned AWAY from the receiver. He made a spectacular play to turn and dive that fast. It would have been a good play just to knock it down. to also intercept it was the Best.

Romo played his ass off, so what we didn't have Von, Champ, Harris and Woodyard playing.

tony romo has always been good. I've said that forever. if he didn't play for a team like Dallas, which is inundated in media coverage and tends to think it should win the super bowl every year no matter who suits up, we would be singing the praises of an undrafted QB who does what he does.

and do you know what he led the NFL in last year?

fourth quarter comebacks.

Check down to the RB. Take the yards and play 3rd down.

Also, they are the team that gave him a huge extension.
