My latest Running the Numbers piece is a look at each route Tony Romo has thrown in 2012:

One of the new aspects of the Cowboys’ offensive plays that I’ve begun to track in 2012 is the route run by each receiver. I decided to monitor routes for a few reasons, but primarily as a way to gaugeTony Romo’s efficiency when throwing to various areas of the field. Every quarterback excels on different types of throws, depending on their particular skill set and repertoire of receivers, and Romo is no different. Let’s take a look:

  • Angle: 0-for-1
  • Back Shoulder: 2-for-4 for 13 yards, 1 TD
  • Comeback: 11-for-16 for 129 yards
  • Corner: 2-for-6 for 41 yards
  • Dig: 15-for-24 for 195 yards, 1 TD, 4 INT
  • Drag: 11-for-16 for 124 yards
  • Check-Down: 15-for-15 for 112 yards
  • Fade: 0-for-4
  • Flat: 15-for-18 for 98 yards
  • Go: 8-for-21 for 294 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT
  • Hitch/Curl: 42-for-56 for 335 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Hitch-and-Go: 2-for-2 for 62 yards, 2 TD
  • Out: 33-for-42 for 300 yards, 1 INT
  • Out-and-Up: 1-for-3 for 66 yards
  • Post: 7-for-15 for 170 yards, 2 INT
  • Scramble Pass: 14-for-22 for 177 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT
  • Screen: 10-for-13 for 31 yards
  • Seam: 2-for-5 for 38 yards
  • Slant: 30-for-37 for 362 yards
  • Smash: 2-for-3 for 12 yards
  • Swing: 8-for-11 for 41 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Wheel: 0-for-3
