Romo is the new holder



Wow.   Let the jokes begin!!

IRVING -- A player who is still remembered for botching a hold for the Cowboys in a playoff game will get another chance in that role. After several missed field goals by Nick Folk, holder-punter Mat McBriar has been demoted and he'll be replaced by none other than Tony Romo


McBriar has admitted to "lunging" while trying to spot the ball for folk. I'm not sure that's why Folk has missed so many field goals in the 40-49-yard range but the Cowboys are willing to try anything at this point. 

Coach Wade Phillips stopped short of confirming the change Wednesday but strongly hinted that it would happen. And don't feel sorry for McBriar. I think he's thrilled with the change. He's never felt comfortable as the holder. Now he can focus on booting the ball 60 yards.
