Romo says Cowboys' offense only "a play or two" away from clicking in most games

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said the team’s lack of consistent offensive punch this season has come down “to a play or two” in most games, with execution errors at the top of the list of things that need to be corrected. In a conference call today with New York writers, Romo laid out some of the Cowboys’ most notable gaffes.

“We’ve had some passes that we either dropped, or I missed a guy on a throw, or we just didn’t block one guy when a guy was open,” Romo said. “When you look at it closely, sometimes it’s just coming down with the ball. Other times, when you’re putting it there, it’s just close.”

Romo referenced two examples from last week’s 19-14 victory over Carolina.

“Dez (Bryant) has a fade route, and if he goes up and catches it, you score 25 points. It’s a different feeling,” Romo said. “I missed Miles (Austin) earlier in the game, on a throw that I would make nine out of (10) times. Each game, it comes down to a play or two. Those are what it comes down to, in order to score points in the National Football League. We’ve been doing that well at different times this year, and we just have to go out there and do a better job of it.”

yeah those 1, 2, 3 , err 7 ints that you have thrown, those count too.

I can count about three TD passes that Romo has left on the field when he missed wide open receivers. Receivers will drop an occassional pass even though we wished they'd catch every pass coming their way. But to continue to miss wide open receivers on pass plays that could go for touchdowns? That's on Romo.
