Teams Drop Down

Writers Drop Down

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Will Dez Bryant and the rest of the Cowboys follow suit?

Tony Romo stepped up big time on Sunday, now will DezBryant and the rest of the Cowboys follow his lead?  Yes I’m well aware of the interception he threw which led to the Broncos kicking the game winning field goal as time expired.

What was also very clear on Sunday were the dropped passes in the end zone by Dez Bryant and Jason Witten in the first half.  That would’ve put them up by eight points instead of being tied when the 4th quarter INT was thrown.  Granted Romomakes mistakes in the clutch, but he is the Brett Farve of our era, so fans should expect things like that from him.

What I don’t expect but always seems to happen, is Dezmaking the most acrobatic grabs possible every game look easy and then losing focus on the simplest catches.  You could say he’s left about fourteen points off the board in the past three weeks if you wanted to.

Everyone knows the quarterback gets all the glory in wins and all the criticism in losses, but if you want to blame Romo for everything going wrong you obviously aren’t watching the game that closely.  He carries the teams on his back the whole game, because we abandon the game plan to run the ball the minute we get down.  The guy is at the top of almost every major statistical category this year, and in the active career leader numbers as well. I’ll end this with his last 5 years of stats and let you be the judge.
