Tony Romo nearly became just the fifth quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 5,000 yards in a season. He finished with 4,903, ranking him third in the NFL. He also completed 65.6 percent of his passes and threw 28 touchdowns. Some of the numbers look really good. But Romo wasn't one of the six NFC Pro Bowl quarterbacks for a reason. (Matt Ryan, Robert Griffin and Aaron Rodgers did not play in the game. Drew Brees, Russell Wilson and Eli Manning did.) Romo tied for the NFL lead in interceptions with 19, three of them coming in the win-or-go-home game against the Redskins in the regular-season finale. Romo also lost three fumbles last season, making him accountable for 22 of the team's 29 turnovers. Quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said some of Romo's turnovers can be traced directly to the quarterback trying to "do too much" to make up for, among other things, a non-existent running game and a porous offensive line. "I think that happened a lot this year, that he tried to do too much," Wilson said. "He tried to make up for mistakes and trying to convert third-and-longs. It leads to bad plays."
