Andre Gurode talked about the good and the bad that happened Sunday night in the 33-31 loss to the NY Giants, but he wasn't about to let QB Tony Romo heap all the blame on himself as he attempted to do after throwing three picks that resulted in 21 Giants points.
"That’s totally wrong and I actually was going to address that issue," Gurode said. "It’s not Tony’s fault at all. He cannot take complete blame for a game that a team plays. We have his back, he has our back. We’re not going to allow him to take the full blame for this game and we’re going to stand up for him, we’re going to go out there next week and play well and try to get a victory."
Clearly Romo was trying to display leadership qualities that critics have said he lacks.
"It says a lot about the guy," Gurode said. "He takes a lot of things personally. I know you guys don’t see it from our perspective, but he takes a lot of things that he does wrong very, very hard. I can just imagine how he felt last night when he went home. You see the guy today, pat him on the back and say, 'Hey, we're going to correct our mistakes and get better.'"
