Romo: Cowboys have to cut out the turnovers

Tony Romo's two fourth-quarter turnovers against the Jets cost the Cowboys in the season opener. His three second-half interceptions against the Lions were the difference in the Cowboys' loss to the Lions in Week 4. In between, Romo won the Cowboys games against the 49ers and Redskins.

On a conference call with New England reporters Wednesday, Romo was asked about learning from his losses and the ability to move on.

"You never want that to happen," Romo said. "We were also fortunate to have all the things go right against Washington and against San Francisco. For every game that’s the other way, there’s another one the other side. Everyone is good in this league. You have to minimize turnovers in key situations. We did that for two of the games and two of the games we didn’t. That’s really what it comes down to."

The Cowboys should have a chance to make plays against a Patriots defense ranked last in the league. They have given up 28 pass plays of at least 20 yards.

"It’s early in the year,” Romo said. “I think in the off-season, there are some things of that nature that probably took a little time for schematically to get a lot of stuff in. They played really well last week. In stretches, they’ve played really good ball. I don’t know that that’s who they are. I think really, they’re a good defensive unit that’s just coming into their own lately. I think they’re going to be pretty good the rest of the way.”

If Brady takes the time to MAKE those reads you just took to TYPE it; he PROBABLY WILL take the sack against the Cowboys; WANT TO or NOT!

Brady HAS a RB that can CLOSE OUT A GAME !!

Brady HAS an OC that can CALL A BALANCED GAME !!

Brady HAS a GM that can SURROUND BRADY WITH TALENT !!

Brady HAS a SB WINNING HC !!

*** WHAT DOES ROMO HAVE ???? ***

I REST MY CASE

BETTER YET WHAT HAS ROMO EVER HAD IN HIS CAREER ???

Ditto

@ Alexander Stavros

Look at the Jets/Cowboys game again and let me know what happened to the Cowboys defense when Scandrick and Jenkins went out - Burris scored a TD and this was before Romo threw the interception.

Also, look at the 10 minute mark of the 4th Quarter, the more I look at this play Witten should have leaned into the defensive player and Witten's momentum would have carried him into the end zone for the touchdown! Instead, Witten allowed the defensive player to use Witten's momentum to push him out of bounds. A smart, big player like Witten should have fought more for that TD, so I hope Witten learns from this as well!!!

So, yes, Romo said it correctly, "we" versus "I" after all it is a team sport!!

Cowboys? Don't you mean "I"? If you watch films, Romo has a real issue when linebackers drop back into coverage. Tony, please watch Tom Brady. He looks at his first read, second read, Wes Welker and then if they are all covered, he throws the ball away or takes a sack. He doesn't throw into triple coverage. WTF.

No Romo...YOU have to cut down on the turnovers!!
