08:02 AM ET 10.19 | In the eyes of his critics, Dez Bryant has an unfortunate new second-half act: disappearing. [Jerry Jones] said Bryant needs to work harder and run better routes, while hinting that his route running led to some of quarterback Tony Romo's interceptions. At least three of Romo's interceptions this season have come on passes attempted to Bryant, including one on Sunday against the Patriots. "Dez needs to concentrate," Jones said. "I'm not being critical of him, but he needs to continue to concentrate on his route running because there's a reason for harping on running correct routes even though you're a great receiver and that is it gets you open and it causes other people to get open as well if each receiver will run his route."

Can't blame Dez for everything

Last year the INT's were blamed on Roy Williams, now Dez...ahhh...maybe it's the QB? duh!!!

I don't picture him a good route runner. He's a beast when he catches the ball, but runs too wild.

Maybe GM Jerry should spend less time discussing his players in the media and more time putting together a team.

Maybe Jerry should spend all his time discussing his players in the media, and let someone else be GM.

It's always the receivers fault whenever Romo throws an interception. Ask T.O., he'll fall on the sword for his former qb.

You'd think he'd like that option. Gotta get his money's worth on all that plastic surgery.

This might be the beginning of the end for Romo. When you start throwing one of your best players under the bus in the Media.. You Are Gonna lose the team. Should've kept that in the locker room.

Bleat the Lambs.

This is a game where the Cowboys have a chance to get their mojo back, whatever that means.

Brady has 8 ints.
Brees 8 ints.

Romo 6

The moral to the story. Throw enough TDs and win more games and ints. are forgot.

Is jerry jones taking over for the late Al Davis?

When you say "I'm not being critical of him, but..."

You are being critical of him.
