Cowboys WR Cole Beasley takes blame for Tony Romo’s last pick


The Dallas Cowboys collapsed on Sunday and let their large lead dwindle away. Tony Romo threw a pair of fourth quarter interceptions, including one in the final two minutes of the game when the Cowboys were driving to get back into field goal range.

Second year wide receiver Cole Beasley, who Romo was trying to pass to on that final interception, took responsibility for the interception.

“I’ve got to keep running,” Beasley said, via ESPN Dallas. “That was on me. That’s all it was. … I stopped when I should have kept going. That’s about it.

“I saw the corner and I throttled down a little bit. I don’t have the option to do that on my play. That was my fault. We didn’t execute how we were supposed to. I take full responsibility for it. I’ve just got to keep running and catch the ball and take the hit.”

    This team, no, this franchise is terrible from top to bottom. There’s just no other way to put it. Every component of this team is damaged, from the mental mistakes that cause lost games, to the poor decision making processes and just, flat mismanagement of the assets.

    Jones’ ego-driven mismanagement and hubris, at every level, at every position, is legendary throughout the professional football ranks. The reasons for this team’s dismal performance time after time can be laid directly at Jones’ feet. Nothing will change until this man takes responsibility, hires a GM and backs away.

    Jason Garrett’s numerous boneheaded rookie mistakes and errors in judgment have now reached a point where they are a liability and are hurting this team’s potential to win games. He must go.

    All the assistant coaches haven’t coached well enough to remain in place, except, maybe Marinelli. These guys need to be carefully assessed at the end of this season to determine if they deserve a second chance to fix this mess. If not, they must go.

    Romo has been given too much power in the huddle. His physical abilities are dwindling before our eyes. He can’t run and he can’t throw the long ball. His repeated mental mistakes, namely, poor choices resulting in interceptions are now turning this team into a laughing stock. Romo should not be allowed to make changes in plays from the sidelines until he proves he can execute the game plan as it’s being called. He’s directly responsible for the Green Bay loss and should be held accountable for it in the media and in front of the team.

    The team is a mess on both sides of the ball. Every player on this team should be made aware that they are tradable. No one should be safe.

    Several big names on the defense, Ware, Claiborne, Carr, Church, Lee, etc. should have their season’s production severely assessed. It may be time for some of these guys to seek employment elsewhere.

    This offense needs several new linemen. Bryant should either be reigned in or told to leave.Terrance Williams should be benched. Austin should be traded along with several other so-called elite players.

    I could go on but I’m too frustrated to continue.

    It’s time this team stepped back and took a hard, cold look at just what it is. Then take steps to fix every component of it, from top to bottom.

    As Dallas Cowboys fans, we deserve better than this steaming heap of a team we’ve been stuck with far too long because of the owner’s unfulfilled desire to feel needed.

      All of this is just proof that you can’t run a football team the way Jerry has done since Jimmy left! I think fans might finally see the light, did y’all hear how loud the stadium was when Dallas had the ball? Things keep going like it has cowboys will have to practice with loud speakers to prepare to play in AT&T stadium

        I know that’s one thing I cant stand. Dallas being the home team is getting out-cheered in their own stadium..pitiful once a proud franchise
