At Dallas News, I posted analysis of a single aspect of Tony Romo’s game that, if changed, will result in a better record for Dallas.

I’ve been writing a lot on the Cowboys’ red zone offense of late, offering three ways to fix it: run more inside the 10-yard linetarget Dez Bryant over Jason Witten, and get the rookies involved. Two of those solutions actively involve the quarterback, and Tony Romo wasn’t very good in the red zone in 2012.

Using STATSPass, I researched Romo’s red zone success relative to others around the league. Amazingly, Romo recorded a passer rating of just 82.7 despite throwing 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions in the red zone. The main reason for that was because Romo completed just 34 of his 73 red zone passes—46.6 percent. Romo ended up 25th in the NFL in red zone passer rating and one spot lower in completion percentage.
