Lol you guys...deep balls result in simply more than INT's or completions. Do it consistently and it will change the way defenses play them...which in turn will also open up more intermediate routes and will also help the run game/oline...basically the ENTIRE offense. Throwing downfield can also draw a PI/holding/illegal contact call which you will see often every Sunday in the can change a drive compeletely...which can change a game. Good to hear Stephen Jones has taken notice of the lack of balls thrown downfield and basically said THROW THE BALL TO DEZ! Ohhhh the sand in the hour glass is dwindling on Romo...searching the room for more fingers to point...but everyone is all gone.

How can anyone realistically type we may have to go score to score against the Broncos to get the win. Lol...have you seen our offense the last 2 seasons?

Those that doubt this article, Romo hasn't thrown for 300 yards yet this season. (The longest stretch of his career!) That's not good! It was one thing against the Rams when the running game was going off. But last week, the running game was working, the passing game wasn't because we refuse to throw downfield. It's easy for the defense to just move up and continue to challenge the short stuff and the run game. A single high safety has been killing our defense, because they refuse to throw it deep. Dez and Austin (when he get's back) are both great at catching the ball in traffic. There should be 4-6 deep attempts per game, not 2. Keep the defense honest.

WHAT ARE YOU GUYS TALKING ABOUT????? Seriously was I the only one watching the game? So the deep ball to Witten down the middle of the field that was what a nice 50 yard throw? right in witten's hands?? Or the three balls in Dez's hands that he dropped that kept us from continuing drives? or how about the dropped ball from Williams that stalled another drive. Come on seriously? I love Dez but forcing the ball to Dez thinking he is going to make miracle catches every time is just going to leave you with more interceptions and more stalled drives. Seriously some how big plays are going to lead to 300 yard games by Romo. Rivers had 400 yards and how many big plays did he have? Think about it whether you dink and dunk or send the big play you still rack up yards if you sustain drives. I'd rather have a 20 play drive of 5 yard throws and runs that eats up 10 minutes on the clock than a 65 yard bomb that scores in under 2 minutes.

WIth a QB like Romo and a defense like ours you should be trying to run and take time off the clock, giving him less chances of having a huge mistake. also the defense can rest and isn't called upon to make 9 stops in a half.

With stats you have to be careful about correlation, causation, and coincidence.
