What is Dallas’s problem now? The team’s latest loss on Monday night to the Bears was embarrassing to say the least and had many people asking this question. It seems like the team has all the pieces one would need to go the distance. They have a better-than-average quarterback, a good running game, good receivers, and a solid bunch of guys defensively. Despite this, even at home, they can not seem to play like a solidified team. They have gone a far way since their opening week win against the Giants, but have been going in the wrong direction.
Chicago was able to do whatever they wanted against a Rob Ryan defense that is supposed to apply pressure and give up few big plays. Instead though, Cutler looked like the best QB in the league last Monday as he shredded the Dallas secondary. Cutler was able to avoid any rare pressure that did come his way and made play after play.
Tony Rome, on the other hand, looked rattled and was not getting help from his receivers who dropped passes and were responsible for as many picks as Romo was. The majority of picks, that were Romo’s fault, came late in the game as Dallas was trying to make big plays to try and stay in the game. In the end, however, it is Romo who has to take all the blame. This has been the story of Tony’s life ever since Jessica Simpson and the bobbled field goal snap in the playoffs years ago. If you ask me, the only thing Romo needs to succeed is a change of scenery.
