Cowboys MNF Debacle: Does Tony Romo or Dez Bryant Deserve the Blame?

The Dallas Cowboys laid another egg on national television on Monday Night Football, this time suffering a humiliating defeat at home to the Chicago Bears, 34-18. The Cowboys (2-2) suffered through mental breakdowns at seemingly all positions, highlighted by the five interceptions thrown by quarterback Tony Romo

One could argue that those interceptions were tallies of circumstance and not necessarily of incompetence. One deflected off receiver Kevin Ogletree, one could have been ruled a fumble, and the last two were arguably throws Romo would not have made if he wasn't trying to dig his team out of a multi-score hole.

The first interception, however, was clearly not on Romo, as wide receiver Dez Bryant missed his hitch on a hot route, and Romo's pass sailed unimpeded into the hands of Bears defender Charles Tillman, who could have read 50 Shades Of Grey while jogging to the end zone. 

So, how much of the game's breakdowns could be blamed on Bryant? How much blame does Romo deserve?
