My man Curtis Crabtree at KJR compiled some stats regarding the team’s pressure situation in the Dallas game — since that is the game that the players complained about a lack of pressure, and subsequently backed off at the urging of … somebody.

Re-watching the game film, Curtis determined that when the Seahawks had only a four-man rush, Tony Romo was 11-for-13 for 167 yards and three touchdowns, compiling a perfect 158.3 passer rating.

When they blitzed, Romo was 11-for-21 for 158 yards and one interception, with a 57.2 passer rating.

According to Curtis, when Seattle rushed seven guys, Romo was 0-1. When they brought six, he was 3-6 for 52 yards and an interception. And when they rushed five, Romo was 8-14 for 106 yards.

Not until Dallas’ 21st offensive play did Seattle bring more than four men rushing, and when they started bringing a blitz consistently they were down 21-3.

Deon Grant may have backed off his statements immediately after the game, but he wasn’t wrong.
