Analysis of Tony Romo’s Audibles
I’ve been tracking Tony Romo’s audibles for over three years. Today, I compared the quarterback’s 2012 audibles to those since 2009. . .
Whereas almost every audible Romo made in past years was a “Kill” call, only half of his 16 checks in 2012 have been of that variety. On the other audibles, Romo has changed the play himself at the line of scrimmage.
Interestingly, it is the “Kill” calls that have been the most fruitful for Dallas through three games. While it’s a small sample size, three of Romo’s eight “Kill” calls have resulted in touchdowns (DeMarco Murray’s 11-yard score last week was on a “Kill” call). Of Romo’s eight manual checks, two have been runs good for 19 total yards. Romo is 4-for-6 for 34 yards and an interception on the six passes.
