Simply put, Romo tries to do too much. Of course, Romo has dazzled all of us with plays where he did the miraculous. But trying to do too much is a symptom of not trusting the guys on your team. It's about putting yourself above the team.

It all leads to Jerry Jones. That's what Jerry does. He shoots for the moon. It has defined his drafts since Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcel left town. And so it just trickles down through the organization. Yes, Jerry can dazzle. Like winning those Super Bowls in the 90s. And building that stadium.
But it was that spot-light grabbing ego of his that drove Jimmy Johnson out of town and that temps Romo and too many other Cowboys to try to do the impossible.
