Well I was so hoping to be able to write a glowing review of how Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo stood tall and fearless in the pocket against the blitzing Denver Broncos defense and won the game.
Sorry... that was just the dream I had last night.
Another lack-luster game with Romo having trouble connecting with his receivers. Again Romo underutilized his weapons, and again Romo looked lost and dazed, looking most of the game like even owner Jerry Jones couldn't buy Romo a completion.
The Cowboys lost to the Broncos 17-10.
For a team that is supposed to be in the hunt for a Super Bowl Championship it's not too early to say something is wrong in big "D." In my opinion it's not too early to worry about this season and where the Cowboys, now 2-2, are going to end up in the rankings.
Why did the Cowboys stop running?
Starting with the second drive, Dallas was developing a good run game, even with a hurt Marion Barber starting in today's game. In the second half, that run game seemed to disappear being shelved for the "Air-Romo" show.
Romo did make one late fourth-quarter completion that gave Cowboys fans a glimmer of hope that they just might pull it out by their shoestring... Not to be so as Romo and receiver failed to connect again.
Thus the theme for the passing game so far this season.
Alright for you Romo lovers out there I'll get off the Queen "B" bit and cut Romo some slack, after all, it is offensive coordinator Jason Garrett that is really calling the shots for Romo. So it's not all his fault.
Okay we'll all say it's Garrett fault that the Cowboys lost. Right?
Believe what you want to believe, I believe the Cowboys' season right now is in jeopardy. The way this team is playing, forget about any chance of seeing a postseason game, let alone winning one.
Next stop Kansas City to play the 0-4 Chiefs. Let's hope Garrett can get Romo on the same page with his receivers for this one. The Cowboys still have time to right the offensive game.
