Garrett, Jones marvel at Romo's escapability on throw to Austin

Head coach Jason Garrett marveled at quarterback Tony Romo’s scramble and throw to Miles Austin for a 25-yard gain on the drive that tied the game 17-17 in the third quarter.

“I think something that is so important is to be able to allow him to have that freedom to make those Romo-type plays, and that certainly was a great example of that,” Garrett said. “He’s got great vision. He’s got great feel for people around him. He always keeps his eyes up. He seems to be able to make a lot of those plays at critical moments.”

Romo finished with a quarterback rating of 122.1, extending his club record of such games to 46, two more than Troy Aikman.

“It’s just an amazing thing how Tony plays football out there and how he can make those plays and be aware of it,” owner Jerry Jones said.

Romo is pretty good at free lancing when he's in trouble in the pocket. The way to beat him is to keep him in the pocket with pressure and make him go thru his reads. Do that...he can't get past his favorite three step drop. Five or seven step drop..with pressure in his face..the defense has him. In the fourth quarter..don't know why the Eagles got away from the up the middle pressure they had on Romo in the third quarter. They had him on the ropes..and they let him off the hooks.
