as well as blame it on the coaching staff. Which, since you brought it up, I guess I missed when Garrett and Phillips were the ones who threw that pass that led to the fumble and had it returned for a touchdown. It's obvious that the play calling sucked in that game, but the coaches can't make the players make the decisions that they make on the field.
That's asinine. How was the fumble Romo's fault? Was he the one that fumbled the ball? I didn't think so. Ultimately, it all comes down to Choice, Garrett, and Wade.
Don't let your hate blind you to facts. It was a no win situation for Romo. Yes, a QB can audible, but would have caught hell from the coaching staff for doing so. Audibles are reserved for when the coverage is not liked. Not when the play call by Garrett was fucking retarded. Let's run through this since you don't seem to understand.
Dallas gets the ball on the Dallas 30, with :27 left on the clock. They decide to try and get some points on the board before half. No big deal.
1st down (DAL 46) -2 yd pass to Choice (checkdown option).
Incomplete to Bryant
14 yard pass to Bryant
1st down - incomplete pass, 10 yard hold penalty called.
RIGHT then and there, Garrett should have told him to take a knee. Period. End of story. At this point, there was only a matter of seconds on the clock. Nothing was going to materialize here. No good could have come from running ANY play. Instead, Red Jesus, in his infinite wisdom, decides to line up 4 wide, and send them all down the field for a hail mary. The play wasn't there. Everyone but Choice was covered. And IIRC, a Redskin defender was closing in on Romo. So it's take the sack, or toss to Choice and let him get tackled and the clock run out.
The blame lies on...
a) Choice, who was the one that fumbled the ball
b) Garrett, for not making the smart call by telling Romo to take a knee
c) Wade, for not overriding Garrett and telling Romo to take a knee
In NO way was Romo responsible for what happened. Saying he was, or trying to place blame on him is flat out ignorant, or hatred. Take your pick. So far, you're the only one I've seen that has even attempted to blame Romo for this, or say it was ultimately his fault. I watch Sportscenter, Fox Sports, and listen to the Ticket. Out of all the callers and discussion, and trust me, there has been a lot, you're the only one I've noticed that has drawn this conclusion. Think about that. Romo did the best he could, with what he was given. He can't be held accountable for terrible play calling. He can't be held for all dropped balls. Sure, he made a FEW bad passes, but what QB doesn't? I don't know if I've ever seen a 100% completion rating in a game. He even marched his team down the field, and managed the clock to PERFECTION, and threw what would have been a game winning TD had Barron not decided to play piggy back since he couldn't keep up.
