Doesn't anyone remember how hard the entire Cowboys team except Romo tried to lose this game? Hatcher's penalty on what could have been a fourth down, the multiple penalties that almost put them out of FG range before Romo connected with Austin, Witten's holding call that could've resulted in the Giants getting the ball back with more than 2 minutes to go - I could go on and on. Even the Giants' last TD had a number of botched tackles by the Cowboys.
I was constantly thinking back to last year's season opener for the Cowboys when the played the Jets. I was sure they had that game closed out before a series of brutal plays. I was just waiting for them to self-combust before Romo made those clutch plays (the Austin TD on 1st-and-30, the last pass on 3rd down to seal the game). I am not a Dallas fan (although I do root for Romo) and I find it hard to watch them give away games in the end. How do all you Cowboys fans manage to do it season after season?
I believe Romo gets unfairly judged only because he plays for the Cowboys. I can't help but wonder how things would have been had Payton taken Romo with him to NO. Here is hoping he shuts up some critics this year.
