We can say with confidence that Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo hasn’t been bad this season, per se. His passer rating is a pretty good 93.6; he’s thrown ten touchdowns; he’s compiled more than 1,500 yards passing. That’s the good; the bad is that he has also thrown seven interceptions.
Not all of the interceptions have really been Romo’s fault--several of them were tipped--but that matters little when you’re the quarterback of a 1-4, last place, almost-hopeless team.
Romo knows he must be better, but he’s not ready to panic just yet.
"The only thing you look at is if there's a trend that comes up,'' Romo said, per the Dallas Morning News. "The good news is there's not a trend in making poor decisions.
"Now, the ball is getting intercepted and we have to correct that. I have to do a better job. I have to correct that, and I will. But you have to throw it in there. When the guy's open, you can't hold the ball because it's a farther down-the-field throw. Then you've got no chance. You've got to find the right mix. I know how important that is.''
