Last Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys offense put together quite an impressive performance, keeping up with the historic offense of Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos.
Tony Romo outplayed Manning up to the final and tragic series. He was on pace to have the best game EVER by a quarterback in the National Football League.
And then he was intercepted.
I know the interception was heart breaking, and I know that’s the history of Tony Romo. I can’t help but feel bad for the guy. He was so close to shut up everybody…
Anyway, tomorrow come the Washington Redskins to town and the Cowboys just can’t let this one slip from their hands like the last two games against the Chargers and the Broncos.
It’s time to let Tony Romo do what he knows best. Let him to do what he did against Denver. Let him take risks, try deep passes, and spread the field.
We all saw it last week. For a couple of hours, the Cowboys offense was reminiscent of the “Greatest Show On Turf” run by some guy called Kurt Warner a decade ago. It also reminded me of the “Brady Bunch” by the ‘almost undefeated’ Patriots of 2007.
It maybe had something to do with the pathetic level of play of the Broncos defense, but Romo was looking every bit like a re-incarnation of Dan Fouts and Dan Marino put together into one hell of a quarterback.
He has the talent to do it. For sure, we’ll see many more interceptions. But if you reach the 40-point mark every game, then interceptions become manageable.
It’s the 6th week of the season and the Cowboys are still looking for their identity. Every game they try something different. It’s time to give Romo the ball.
In Tony we trust.
There’s actually no choice!
We all know these Cowboys will go as far as Romo takes them. They can’t depend on their defense, that’s for sure.
So, it’s time to air it out!
