Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys Are Letting The Haters Win

All off-season we were hearing about the great things this offense was going to show.  Tony Romo was saying things like “just wait and see, its gonna be fun”.  The “12” personnel was going to be awesome and help out in the red-zone and all that jazz.  This is an absolute joke, and it’s actually making me mad.

I have seen and cheered on some frustrating Cowboys teams in my day but this one takes the cake.  It is beyond comprehension to try and understand the objective they are trying to obtain.  Are they now a nickel and dime team that is going to rely on lucky bounces to win games?  I don’t know and I am about to not care.  The offense as a whole has had one solid game and that was against the Rams.

The Chargers defense was giving up all kinds of big pass plays heading into last Sunday, and what do the Cowboys do?  They blow a lead by not scoring a point in the second half, and hitting one big pass play, the 34 yarder to Bryant.  I know the defence played really bad but it wouldn’t have been nearly as bad if the offense had been able to do something, anything.

I totally agree with Jerry Jones when he says that the Cowboys should throw the ball to Bryant if he is double-covered.  Give the guy a chance to make a play, this offense desperately needs some big plays.  The defence will never be good enough for them to mickey- mouse their way down the field.  Long dinky dunk drives are hard to maintain and the Cowboys almost have no inkling to take a shot.

I think all the crap that Romo has been hearing over the years about him not being clutch, and mistake prone have gotten into his head.  He figures if he doesn’t throw picks then they win, nope they don’t.  If this is Callahan’s doing then it is time he was interrupted from his High School game-plan.

Jason Garrett has to realize that his job is on the line and step in because this is not worth watching.  The Cowboys have been a big-play team for years.  It has kept them in games that they had no business being in.  Now this new rubbish is losing them games they had no business losing.

If Dallas does not realize the stupidity of this offense in a hurry, this lifelong fan is going to say adios.  I am tired of the anticipation before every season, the hopes and now this junk.  Too much emotional and financial investment and not enough return.  Good luck boys, we will see ya on Sunday.

    Good article. The Cowboys are confusing to say the least. They don’t have an identity. It seems they attempt to change philosophies year to year and are confused as a result. It is also apparent they have too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Otherwise they would at least show some consistency even if they are bad. Romo must be Romo for better or worse and not change from a big play quarterback to a dink it down the field quarterback. I have been a fan for over forty years and for most of those I have had hope for the Cowboys. However, it has become apparent that they will never be contenders again while Jerry Jones is involved with the team and a general manager with some football sense is hired.

    Seems to me to be the same offense as last year. Dallas needs a burner at wide out opposite Dez. Romo has had great protection but can’t find open personnel down field. I like Witten, but I believe he has lost a step. I don’t blame the defense to much last week because the offense could not sustain many drives. The defense was just to tired in the 4th quarter.

    And Dallas needs to cut ties with Miles Austin. Waste of a roster slot.

    Terrible piece. So silly. So ignorant. Nothing wrong with picking up 4 or 5 yards at a time. You have to play to where the yards are–not try to force the ball into the strength of the defense. What you run depends on what the defense shows.
