[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Same as last year Patsy fans.... : Well, if anyone should, it should be the center, but that's not the point. You are assuming that it was Romo's fault and you do not know that. It could have been the center. You want to pretend that this play should not have happened becasue it was at a crucial point, but every other play should have happened, Sanchez' pick or his fumble, dropped passes, missed picks. It doesn't work like that. Both teams made great plays and made big mistakes. If it weren't for Romo's 350/ 2 Tds the Cowboys are not ahead where they can fumble or throw a pick to lose the game. It's a complete package, we don't get to pick and choose. You don't get to not include a missed tackle, a fumble, a blocked punt etc.

you do get to choose if you find a new QB
Romo is clearly flawed. he just gave you the lead AND blew the game
but right now he's masquerading as a guy who can be the center of your game plan for the ful 60 minutes when he goes 50 minutes and chokes
as Sanchez and the Jets have demonstrated, if you KNOW AND ACCEPT your QB's weaknesses, you can build your team and your game plans around them. Notice how Sanchez never throws further than 25 yards? Coincidence? But their cap space is spent on defense, big linemen, and runningbacks (and now a big receiver and a pass-tacthing tight end who Sanchez can just toss the ball up for)
But the Cowboys leaned on Romo for the full 60 minutes and he came up 5 minutes short. You can't adjust your whole team to the idea that your stat-sheet-filling QB is going to choke at the end of every key game in every big moment.
