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.
The way it needs to be looked at, is that no matter what happened before, the game is tied with 2 minutes left. Whether it's 48 all or 0-0, it's a starting point, and any team or quarterback would kill to have the ball in that situation. Romo's choking episodes are legendary. This is merely another one, but this one likely stings a bit more. Any other quarterback, you give him a pass and a mulligan. But Romo is the king of that kind of gag. Joe Montana never had the best regular season numbers, far from it, in fact. But crunch time is where you make or break your name in sport.
