Cowboys hierarchy want Quarterback answers
The Dallas Cowboys can afford to live another day if they choose not to draft a quarterback. But should they?
Playing twelve games without your starting quarterback would be a struggle for any side in the NFL.
In a 4-12 season the Dallas Cowboys managed just one win without Tony Romo featuring.
It was a sorry state of affairs for a team without both their key play makers.
But when six of the twelve losses are by a touchdown or less it becomes that bit more infuriating.
The finger of blame for the 2015 struggles has been pointed everywhere.
But executive vice president Stephen Jones is adamant the team get answers and prevent this happening again.
"“I think the thing we still keep going back to is we’ve got to have a better solution and a better answer, if something happens to Tony, that’ll give us a chance to win football games and be more competitive than we were”"

Look at the names of the quarterbacks who took their teams to the playoffs this season – Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers; they’re already legends of the game that will go down as historically some of the greatest.
Then Cam Newton and Russell Wilson head up a list of young guns soon to take the baton from those old timers.
And Teddy Bridgewater experienced the Playoffs for what could potentially be the first of many in just his second year as an NFL quarterback.
A.J. McCarron and Brandon Weeden are the exception in the playoff brackets.
McCarron was playing in place of injured starter Andy Dalton and Weeden left the Cowboys under a cloud to join a team who made the playoffs.
What a strange state of affairs!
Nevertheless, the argument here is you don’t win big with your back up quarterback but you should be winning some games at the very least.
