Romo buzz continues

New, comments

Profootballtalk.com is saying that the league is really buzzing about our backup qb. They even suggest that Bledsoe will be on short lease with Parcells and Romo just might be the man by season's end.

In the wake of the unusual decision of Cowboys coach Bill Parcells to use quarterback Tony Romo for the entire preseason game on Saturday night at Seattle, the league is buzzing with positive comments regarding the fourth-year signal-caller from Eastern Illinois.

Some are saying that Romo reminds them of a young Brett Favre.  The players in Dallas, we're told, love Romo, who is far more mobile than starter Drew Bledsoe.

One scout has predicted that Bledsoe will be on a short leash this year, and that if/when Bledsoe struggles Romo will get the job and Bledsoe will be done.

I guess I'm not the only Romo fan out there. While there certainly is not a qb controversy right now, there could be if Romo continues to play well this preseason and Bledsoe struggles into the season. I say this because if our line cannot protect Drew, Parcells might feel that a more mobile Romo might give our offense a better chance to succeed. I have a feeling this story has only begun.
