BACKUP QUARTERBACK

The Dallas offense looks amazing on paper.  Young Pro-Bowlers at the running back, wide receiver and offensive line positions.  Youth and talent along the line, a Hall of Fame worthy tight end and a top ten quarterback all might lead to something really special on offense this year.  That is, of course, unless the quarterback gets hurt.  Look, if Dez Bryant, Tyron Smith, DeMarco Murray or Jason Witten goes down for any length of time it would certainly be detrimental to the success of this team but if Tony Romo gets hurt again, you can forget about it.  If (and it’s looking more and more likely that “if” will turn into a “when”) Kyle Orton does not return as Romo’s caddie, the next two men up for filling in are a combined 7-19 as starters in this league with more career interceptions (35) than touchdowns (26).  If either Brandon Weeden or Caleb Hanie see any action from September to whenever the Cowboys season is done, fans better hope it’s nothing more than on one knee holding a ball for Dan Bailey to kick.  While neither has had the luxury of playing with the kind of talent the Cowboys have, please believe that Jason Garrett‘s future as the head coach of this franchise is riding on the arm (and back) of Antonio Ramiro Romo.  Any significant time that Romo misses in 2014 will almost certainly provide Garrett with equal time to update his resume for his next job.
