There was some bickering between the two. And it looked as though Romo was pissed.

I'm pretty sure they are on pace to surpass the New Orleans defense from last year.

Brees' game wasn't centered around him making plays with his feet and running around. Also Brees was a far superior passer coming out than Manziel.

His stats are worse in October but no one talks about that. Barnwell makes some good points in his column today...

It's the sequel that only Packers fans, Eagles fans, and Cowboys masochists could have wanted: Tony Romo Screws Things Up at the End XXVII. Sequels always need to go bigger and badder to top the previous edition, though, and while Romo only threw one pick in Dallas's heartbreaking loss to Denver in Week 5, he upped the ante by throwing two interceptions in the fourth quarter of Dallas's stunning loss at home to Green Bay on Sunday afternoon. It's a loss that leaves Cowboys fans reeling, not only by its nature, but by the fact that the Eagles had lost earlier in the day; a Cowboys win could have put Dallas in the driver's seat to win the NFC East. Now, the Cowboys will need to win out or spend January on the golf course for the fifth time in six seasons.

Even by Cowboys standards, this game was a case of defeat being snatched from the jaws of victory. Dallas had a 23-point lead at halftime; since 1990, teams with a lead between 21 and 24 points at halftime were a combined 277-12 (.958).1 Dallas allowed a touchdown quickly after halftime, but it still had a 96 percent chance of winning the contest with five minutes to go and managed to blow the game so badly that Matt Flynn actually got to take snaps in the victory formation. Oh, did I mention that Matt Flynn cut by the Raiders and Bills already this year was the guy who led this comeback?

There are three parties that get blamed for every late Cowboys failure, and it's no different this time around. Let's review their relative culpability.

1. It's Tony Romo's fault. Nobody's going to enjoy the "Is Tony Romo clutch?" debate, so let's just skip past that for now. Briefly, though, let's run a table and talk about the whole "Tony Romo can't win in December and January" thing. These are Romo's numbers, split by month, over the course of his career. The win-loss records are his records as a starter and include both Romo's regular-season and playoff performance. The only game that's not included in his win-loss record is a December loss to the Eagles when Romo threw two passes before injuring his hand.

Problem (as many others have pointed out) is Jones. Until he cedes control (whether voluntarily or through death), Dallas will continue as it has.

Well the HC comes out and throws Romo under the bus and says he was supposed to run it but threw an interception.

Romo is a problem and has been just as much a problem as Jerry Jones.

They don't have their franchise guy. They've had 2....Staubach and Aikman. This is every team's dilemma...except for a few that have their guy.

QBs...Steelers: Bradshaw and Rothlesberger.
Not sure some teams have had any marque type QBs...Bucs? Bengals? Certainly not the Jags.
There are a lot of interesting QBs in the league right now that may be the first special QB for some....Falcons/Ryan, Ravens/Flacco, Seahawks/Wilson...of course people expect them to win some kind of title to be really special....Flacco won this past year.
The Cowboys and Skins are both a long ways from that.

Similar to Donovan McNabb...had multiple opportunities to do something great and just didn't make enough good plays when needed.
That fine line between being a very good QB and great...then again, it's incredibly hard to be a great QB in that league.

Romo has nothing to be ashamed of all things considered...he's been somewhat of an overachiever most of his career.
