You were just hired as a general manager and you have to choose one quarterback, so which one is it going to be?
Player A: 71.0 quarterback rating, 1391 yards, 4 touchdowns to 9 interceptions.
Player B: 99.2 quarterback rating, 1900 yards, 12 touchdowns to 6 interceptions.
Player B has clearly outperformed player A, so you would want to choose player B right?
I am not sure why the Dallas Cowboys don’t think the same way. Player A is Tony Romo’s numbers the first half of games while Player B is Tony Romo’s numbers in the second half of games. The reason Romo heats up in the second half is because the Cowboys move towards the no huddle offense. Romo is a better quarterback in the no huddle, so I am no sure why the Cowboys don’t move towards the no huddle earlier in the game.
The problem with staying in the ball control offense is that the Cowboys cannot sustain long drives. They are bound to make a mistake if they go 9-10 plays into the drive- whether that is because of a turnover or a penalty. They are not a team that is disciplined enough.
