A question about Cowboys QB Tony Romo's mechanics was asked on the team's Web site:

Q - It seemed that a bunch of Romo's passes on Sunday were lofted and lacked the zip of his past years. He was not setting his feet before these throws, are his mechanics are back yet?

Bryan Broaddus: The best example of that was the third down throw across the middle to Cole Beasley late in the game. It’s a throw that Romo has made a hundred times, but in this case his left foot was wide open, as were his hips. His momentum was all going to the left trying to make a throw that required him to be square to the target. He tried to throw the ball by flipping it and it was way too high. What was strange about his game is that if you look at the early throws to Williams and Bryant on the slants he was right where he needed to be.

David Helman: Jerry Jones talked about this a bit on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday. He pointed out that Romo’s longest gain of the day, a 57-yarder to Dwayne Harris, came on a “duck” of a throw. This raises some pretty obvious questions about whether Romo is rusty after a limited preseason, or if he is still feeling the effects of his back injury. He made accurate throws during training camp. But it’s something to keep an eye on.

Fantasy Impact: 

Romo did struggle at times but it was a tough start going against the 49ers defense. Dallas gets another tough test against the Titans defense that looked good against the Chiefs. Romo has a lot of talent to work with but he may be a classic wait-and-see QB candidate at this point until he shakes off what many hope is just rust.
