Found October 03, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did well to create some classic bulletin board material for the Denver Broncos ahead of their clash in Texas on Sunday.Romo, who has thrown eight touchdowns and only one interception this season, called out the Broncos secondary for what he believed to be extremely physical play using "little tricks." “They grab, they hold, they’ve almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they’re going to call the game close or not,”Romo said, via USA Today. “If they get called once or twice, that’s a good thing. But they’re all over guys as far as using the little tricks, I guess you could say, that good linebackers and good secondaries use when they’re playing man coverage.” For the record, the Broncos secondary has been called for defensive pass interference five times, defensive holding four times, and for illegal contact once so far in 2013. So, Romo may be on to something here. Nonetheless, don't expect this comments to be received well by the Broncos. Via Sports Illustrated

If Jerry Jones was telling the truth when he said Tony Romo would have a lot more say in the game-planning process this season, then it's time for the quarterback to get a little greedy.

Decoding Callahan - The Troubling Evolution Of The Road Game Plan

From an offensive point of view, Sunday was an odd game to evaluate. On one hand, they protected the ball relatively well (until the fumble into the end zone), protected the QB reasonably well, and ran the ball impressively. On the other hand, they only accumulated 317 yards of total offense, converted very poorly on 3rd Downs (3-9), and barely spent 25 minutes on the field. None...
