The play was on 4th and 1 on the 9 yard line with 1:19 left in the 4th quarter, with the Dallas Cowboys about to go up 23-21 with a Martin Gramatica chip shot. Tony Romo was the backup at the beginning of the season and was the place holder for Gramatica for that season and that game. The snap went off to Romo’s hands, but the ball seemed to slip, causing Gramatica to back off and Romo had to run the ball into the end zone or reach a first down. As Romo desperately tried reaching the end zone after his mistake, Jordan Babineaux, a Seattle Seahawks' cornerback came behind Romo, tripping him up and Romo fumbled the ball. The ball was recovered by the Seahawks as Romo continued to sit on the ground, grasping his helmet in shame.

  • For me, this is Romo's last chance. If he can't lead the Cowboys into the playoffs this year, he's gotta go.
  • He should have already been gone - years ago. With him on the team, they will never reach the playoffs much less a Super Bowl.
  • Agreed, except I knew this fact 4 years ago.

    Hopefully Jerry can pull his head out of the(his) sand(a*s) long enough to realize his golden boy can't make mustard.

    Sorry Tony, you are not qualified to be a leader of the
    pathetic Cowboys. Unless, of course, Jerry wishes to remain as pathetic as he's been the last several years.

  • Romo is ok it is that idiot General Manager we have Jerry jones who is like a crow. Jones see's something shiny and goes for it example a useless Deion Sanders, Roy Williams, and let us not forget T.O. Jerry wont spend the money correctly in the O line. He thinks he can make chicken salad out of chickencrap. As long as Jerry is around we could have Rodgers or Brady for QB and still suck.
  • I finally have to accept the fact that Tony will never be the clutch qback we wanted. Time and time again he misses open receivers, throws interceptions, and fumbles. All of the problems are not all Tony. Receivers dropping passes, penalties,bad time management, and injuries don't help. And I agree with Slufoot, Jerry as gen mgr will always hurt this team.
  • I didn't see Romo fumble and allow the Giants to score again and again. He didn't drop perfectly thrown passes or run the wrong routes. If he should go then Dez Bryant should as well. The over rated Bryant is nothing but trouble and would be more use to the team if traded for a few good draft choices. /That is if Jones could ever make any good choices. Oh and by the way he can't block for himself either.
  • I think all the Cowboys fans calling for Romo to be sent packing should think about the QB's that the team has had since Troy Aikman retired. Drew Bledsoe, Vinny Testaverde, Drew Henson, Quincy Carter, Chad Hutchinson, Anthony Wright, Ryan Leaf, and Clint Stoerner. Tony is by far the best of the bunch(at least for the time they were here). Be careful what you wish for.
  • he may be the best of the bunch, but would Robert Kraft have any of these guys on his team? NO! the problem isn't the quarterback...it's the general manager who can't seem to find a quarterback that has a small enough ego.
  • If insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again, why would you throw three straight passes when you have 2nd and 1? Wouldn't it make more sense to try at lease one running play? There was still like a minute forty-something in the game. It's not all Romo; you have to fault an offensive line that cannot even contain a three-man rush, you have to fault receivers who can't make the catches when needed, etc. There's enough blame for everyone to go around.
  • Does't matter what we think! Just look at he results, the fumbles; the interceptions; the errors errors errors! It all speaks for itself.
  • Well, Tony cannot blame Jessica on that game yesterday! But I agree with Slufoot, Jerry is a total idiot with a bad facelift and no common sense when it comes to picking players. If I was Jason, I would walk like Jimmy Johnson. Thank GOD, Tom is not around to see what has happened to his Cowboys, it will never be the same .....so sad GET RID OF ROMO!
  • romo can't blame jessica on this game!! jerry needs to be deported back to arkansas, i am glad tom is not here to see this ...run jason run.....romo should be traded, i have some high school football players who could definitely replace romo. jerry is a total idiot with a bad face lift....
  • What this Cowboys team needs is whatever the Atlanta Falcons have!!!!!
  • of course it's time for romo to go. but then again, it's time for a lot of this team to go including the head coach, most assistants and ultimately...the GM.
  • Trade while we still have some market value - make a move Uncle Jed, new QB and Coach!
  • Trade him Uncle Jed and cut your coach who sounds like a robot...
  • I agree that Tony is not the qb we had hoped he would become. But consider that he has been running for his live for almost two years. How many time has he had to overcome so many false starts.With our running game, we can't run on first and 15. So Tony has to throw, the defenses know this, and he is running for his life. May be with 3 second to throw the ball with out pressure would eliminate alot of those interceptions. Just a thought.
  • It is time for Tony Romo to go before Jerry Jones gets him killed.
  • stupid fans are stupid...lol

It’s the same old Dallas Cowboys, the same old Tony Romo

The more things change, the more they stay the same for Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys. Drops by Dez Bryant, plenty of INTs by Romo, and stout defense by the Bears all equal a scathing 34-18 Dallas Cowboys loss to the Chicago Bears.
