Oh, the Cowboys score 17 points in the fourth quarter with the lead and still lose? I'm sure it's Romo's fault somehow. Seriously Monte Kiffin needs to go.
His completion percentage was under 50% for the game. Certainly, the defense deserves a significant amount of the blame, but the quarterback always bares a disproportionate share of the blame in any loss.
That's the thing with Romo though. He statistically has always had a very high QBR and completion percentage but nobody cares. All anyone wants to talk about is his fourth quarter performance. Well this time he actually didn't have the stats early but walked into the fourth quarter with a three point lead and then threw two more TD passes. Keep in mind he had a lot of drops and was also forced to throw the ball away often due to the beating he was taking at the hands of Fairley and Suh. Unfortunately, the defense turned into spectators as soon as they took a two possession lead. No matter what he does the team always seems to find a way to put the entire game on his shoulders. They simply can't hold a lead.
He is currently sitting at 18 TD's to 5 Int's with a completion percentage of 66.1% and a QBR of 101.7 but they are still 4-4. Romo may be on pace to have the best season of his career. Unfortunately, he is partnered with the worst running support and defense he has ever had in his career. Very frustrating to watch his window closing while the supporting cast withers away.
There is this sick part of me that wants to see what would happen if he ended up on a team like this year's Chiefs team.
