Tony Romo and Jason Witten cannot seem to agree who cost the game today against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Romo, with reporters at the post-game press conference, said “this one’s on me” when asked about the loss. He threw three interceptions and never had great accuracy during the game. He also lost a fumble.
Meanwhile, according to the Dallas Morning News, Witten insisted that the game-ending interception was his fault.
“It’s totally on me, completely,” Witten said, who was the first player to talk in the locker room and repeated the message to a different group of reporters after getting dressed. “Tony trusted me on that, and I slipped coming out of the break. He threw it exactly where it was supposed to go, and I cost us the game.”
Does it really matter? The offense played very poorly. Offensive coordinator Jason Garrett’s job should be on the line, not Wade Phillips, who has managed to turn the Cowboys defense into one of the better ones in the NFL over the past two months. Garrett has not done squat this year. He has two of the best wide receivers in the game and he cannot find a way or a game plan to get these guys the ball. It’s unbelievable how bad the play calling is some times. Garrett should be allowed to find a new job as a head coach somewhere else and the Cowboys should seek a new offensive coordinator, one who has proven playoff wins and a solid game plan.
