A Replacement Quarterback

I have been considering this for some time while lurking on this site and decided to just put it out there and take a beating. I personally don't feel that we will ever get anything worthwhile out of our man McGee, and would like to suggest that we consider drafting Brandon Weeden of Oklahoma State in the 5th or 6th round, assuming he is still available.

I am aware that Weeden is 28 years old, which in NFL years is almost geriatric, but the dude can play ball and that is what we need for a backup quarterback. I could bore you all to death with his stats and accomplishments, but instead, I will provide this link Brandon Weeden to try and persuade you that I am right. The more I watch McGee, the more I am convinced that he has reached the apex of his ability and we need to find someone better to back up Tony Romo. He seems to continually struggle to find someone that is more than 10 yards downfield to throw to, and simply has a bare minimal grasp of the entire Cowboy offense. You or I could make the type of drop-off passes that he is infamous for.

If Weeden were not so old, I would be promoting him as the next replacement for Romo, but alas, I am afraid that he will never be more than a really good back up quarterback in the NFL due to his age. Above all, I feel that we need to draft a quarterback prospect that is capable of taking Tony Romo's place in the next 2 or 3 years, and hope that we can accomplish that in this year's draft. However, I also feel it is equally important that we shore up our "other" players and replace McGee with someone who will be able to credibly fill in should it be required.
