Romo and the FADE

Aaron's post on being happy about Romo got me thinking about his 'achilles heel' in the red zone - The Fade pass.

 

Don't get me wrong.  Love me some Romo.  But it seems like this is missing from our arsenal down close.

Any thoughts?  Am I way off on this?

 

here's my comment on Aaron's post:

 

great write-up but I do take exception with this statement--

Romo “can make any throw.”

It seems to me that he does not do well with the fade.

Other than that one game this season- the back-to-back unsuccessful attempts to Roy, I can’t think of any other time they called the play.

The last time I remember the Cowboys hitting a successful fade…… last year against Tampa. Roy caught it.

Guess who threw it……. (drum roll)…… Brad Johnson.

Either way, I hope Romo/Garret/Roy/Bennet can figure this one out because it would sure help us in the red zone.
