12:21 PM ET 10.09 | The Dallas Cowboys' greatest former quarterbacks have always publicly supported current quarterback Tony "Oh no" Romo. Roger Staubach, in particular, has been one of Tony Romo's strongest supporters. Following the loss to the Denver Broncos, Romo has been the subject of a lot if ire. He threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns, but that one interception that cost them the game has been what everyone points to as "typical Romo." Staubach doesn't understand it. "He played one of the most sensational games I've ever seen," Staubach said. "It makes no sense. Those people who blame him, I don't know, they ought to take a look at their lives."

Well..it's kinda like this. Fans would rather see shiny new hardware in the trophy case than look at who is listed at the top of a team's passing records, or touchdown records.

506 yards, 5 TDs...

Denver scored 51 points. Last time I checked, Tony Romo does not play defense. I think Roger might have a point there.

Tony "Oh No" Romo should team up with Yoko Ono...enough with comedy, correct Tony Romo doesn't play defense, all "Boys" needed was time to kill clock, have defensive team step up, THEY should bare the blame more than Tony, but it was sad to witness another melt down, but as Larry (3 Stooges) Fine once said..."Sorry Ma, it was a great fight, but I lost!" Beat DC, all good :)

Roger's not stupid. He understands it. I agree it's not Romo's fault per se...........but it was his fault that he threw that interception at the worst possible moment in the game and it is his fault that he amazingly is in the middle of clutch failures over and over and over and over again in the biggest of games.

Well, if the defense had played with any semblance of competency, the pick would have meant little...

And it's been lost in the fog of battle, but the Cowboys went toe to toe with one of, if not the best team in the league right now. And lost on the last play of the game.

I'm just wondering how many of the people out there blasting Romo actually picked Dallas to beat Denver.

roger makes some good points.

Romo has shouldered his share of blame and criticism over the years but I wouldn't put this loss squarely on him.

So you choose to blame Romo for the Cowboys defense allowing 51 points to be scored on them.

Romo was amazing in that game, but I think everyone was just waiting for the critical INT at the wrong time. He didn't disappoint (this Bronco fan).

That game was a heartbreaker for sure. Defense let them down.

I haven't seen any defense this year slowdown Manning and his offense. The defense did get an INT on Manning and none of the defensive players threw a crucial INT when all he had to do was manage the game and be patient as the game was tied with 2 mins left.

Time for a change Jerry.

Excellent!

"Those people who blame him, I don't know, they ought to take a look at their lives." What is this? Bromo-ance? As earlier stated, Romo did on Sunday what he always does: lose games. For what that means, see V. Lombardi on what's most important in professional football.

I suppose you are an expert at managing games.
