I mean, I get it, I laugh at Romo too, but if my QB threw for 5 TDs and 500 yards, I'd say he's done more than enough for a team to win. If my D can get a decent stop in there.
Well that's the thing. Tony Romo was the team's best player, and should never lose a game where he puts up 48 points. But whether it's 48-48 or 3-3, a QB simply can't get picked off in his own red zone with two minutes left in a tied game. It just can't happen. But Romo has shown that it does happen, time and again. Is it harsh to say he blew it? Probably. But it's like a goaltender that shuts the door for 59 minutes then gives up a weak goal and loses 1-0. Is it his fault the team lost? No. Did he blow it? Yeah.
