Can Someone Translate for Me?

This is from Brett Favre. I get that he said something nice about Romo in the first part, but the second part totally confuses me. What is he saying? Is he criticizing the coaches? "As for Dallas' Tony Romo, perhaps the most similar to Favre in his tendency to improvise against the grain before and after a play has broken down, the future Hall-of-Famer sees a lot of the young Favre in Romo, of whom more is expected all the time. His comment on Romo was interesting in its seeming dismissal of the Cowboys' offensive coaching staff. "Romo is probably more like me than any of those guys," Favre said. "Way too much is cast upon him — good, bad. It's Dallas and much is expected. He's carried those guys. But I'm watching last year — and I like Tony, I like the way he plays, at times he's underrated — but I'm watching and right before the snap, he's telling guys [to get into position and they don't know what they're doing.] "How in the world are you going to have a positive play when the ball is coming and you're telling a guy [to get into position, the ball is snapped] and then he'll make something out of nothing. That's part of being a great quarterback is sometimes it's not going to go. As a coach, they would love to sit there and say, 'It's going to be five steps, you're going to hitch up into a perfect pocket, you're going to look at number one — no; you're going to go to number two — no.' It doesn't work that way."
