Blame Tony Romo?

Yes! Tony Romo made his share of mistakes this season especially during Sunday’s loss to the Washington Redskins’ ending the Cowboys’ season at 8-8, but it is important to understand that he isn't the sole reason that they lost this very pivotal game at FedEx Field. Issues that affected this team during this season’s previous 15 games carried over into game 16.
The bottom line is Dallas needs an Offensive Coordinator and an effective O-Line that can protect Romo. This will allow them to get a consistent running game going. Romo was sacked 36 times this season and Dallas finished 31st overall (NFL) in rushing at 79 yards per game. Maybe former San Diego Charger Head football coach, Norv Turner, could be the answer to their offensive woes. Turner was the offensive coordinator with theDallas Cowboys on Jimmy Johnson's staff when Dallas won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1992 and 1993. Turner got much of the credit for not only their success, but for helping shape quarterback Troy Aikman into a hall of fame player. Whatever the direction they decide to go, they need to upgrade their offensive line period.
The Cowboy’s defense should also share some of the blame for Sunday’s loss. Running back Alfred Morris had 200 rushing yards and three touchdowns and RG3 had 63. Now some can use the excuse that they suffered some injuries to some key personnel on defense but Rob Ryan, the Cowboys' defensive coordinator, should be held more accountable to have his defense ready no matter who is in the game. The Cowboys’ defense finished 19th overall, opposition passing yards at 230 per game and 22nd opposition rushing yards allowing 125 per game. With the amount of money these athletes make, the fans and organization deserve to see more effort than excuses.
I am not here acting as an ambassador for Tony Romo, he is a good quarterback but will probably never be a great one. Teams like the Tampa Buccaneers (Brad Johnson XXXVII) and Baltimore Ravens (Trent Dilfer XXXV) won Super Bowls without great quarterbacks. My God even Rex Grossman led the Chicago Bears to Super Bowl XLI so it can be done. Although the Cowboys’ finished 3rd in passing overall in the NFL at 295 per game, it would be a good idea for Dallas to bring in a quality backup at the quarterback position. There is nothing wrong with a little competition during the preseason to get the best out of your starter during the season.
