A Breakdown of Tony Romo’s 2012 Preseason

My latest Running the Numbers post is a breakdown of Tony Romo’s preseason.

Through three preseason games, Romo has passed the ball on 64.7 percent of the first-team’s snaps. That’s a high rate, but a good one, and one I’d love to see continue into the regular season.

Romo was again excellent against the blitz on Saturday night. I tracked the Rams as sending five or more rushers after Romo on five occasions. The Cowboys passed each time, and while Romo completed only two of those throws, a pair of them were dropped (one by Kevin Ogletree on third down, and the other by John Phillips, although I’ll never admit he really dropped the pass that was reviewed and overturned).

Cowboys Poll: Should Tony Romo be benched this preseason?

The Cowboys have experienced a plethora of injuries already this preseason, particularly along the offensive line.  Right tackle Marc Colombo will be questionable for the season-opener in Washington, while left guard Kyle Kosier is out 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL.  Robert Brewster and Montrae Holland will be starting in their respective places for what will likely be the remainder of the preseason.

With both players struggling in the first two games, the questions arises:  should Dallas bench Romo?  Sure, he wants to play and could probably benefit a bit from doing so, but is the small reward worth the major risk?  You tell us. . .
