After watching last night's game I was trying to figure out how exactly they (Dallas) managed to lose that game and who was to blame. Trying to forget most, if not all, that disastrous finish is more difficult than I envisioned and left me wanting an answer and someone (some people) to be upset with.

Naturally (as you will learn) I have, so to say, a 'slight' dislike for Witten so wanted to find a way to blame him for not getting in when he had a clear cutback lane or for his OPI on the final 'drive' that was incredibly unecessary and obvious that it has to get called (even tho Cheddar Bob, aka Plaxico Burress got away with a clear push off on his TD).  Yet, I can't find it within to blame a guy who played as well as he did.

 Then, I wanted to blame Garrett for some of the play call, which to be honest was either pretty awful at times or receivers don't know their routes - because all night multiple receivers were running routes to the same area which is just nonsense. Add in the play call around the goal line after the Witten catch then I'm just baffled. But even then, Garrett did a great job against a top 3 defense in the NFL, putting up 24 points on them and passing how we did vs the rush and those corners is impressive.

Maybe Alan Ball for not intercepting that pass? Can't do it, he was forced into a starting role and played admirably, just beyong belief for what everyone assessed his talent level at (athletic and long corner needing some football skills)

 So when it boils down to it there really is no one to blame except Romo, not willing to say he played bad because you can't ignore the first 3 quarters, but Romo gave that game away point blank and owes the team, organization and fans an apology.

 

That said, if you told anyone they'd lose on a last second FG and it would be a 3 point game I think most people would have laughed at you.
