Coty beat me to it (Interception talk)


As i was navigating over here to jot this down, I saw the front page story about the last interception. This article:

Got me miffed, so I wanted to take a look at all three interceptions from Sunday night.

First Quarter, 3rd and 8:

Tony throws a quick slant over he middle to where Ogletree is supposed to be. He's not there.

Anyone out there really love Kevin Ogletree? When I see Tony yelling at a guy who should be our 4th or 5th receiver about not running the route correctly, I believe Romo. Especially since this is no where near the first time Ogletree hadn't known what the hell he's doing. Not Romo's fault.

First quarter, 2nd and 5:

This, to me, looks like a poorly thrown ball. It looks like he had to short arm it a bit to make sure he didn't smash his hand on the helmet of the guy being backed up into him (like last year), but I would say he had a reasonable amount of time to make that throw (whether or not it was the right throw to make is another debate), but he under threw it. Romo's fault.

4th quarter, you know the one:

I'm with Coty on this one. I don't think there is a quarterback that would have played this one better. Now, if this was the beginning of the 3rd quarter, I might argue that he should have taken a sack. On top of what Coty explains, my initial reaction, and what I still think is "Why is there an unblocked man!" Even is it was a poor throw, which I don't think it was, there was an untouched defender heading right for Romo's grill. Not Romo's fault.

So, the way I see it, we can hang one INT on Romo. Yeah, we should probably trade him now.
