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.
