Default Re: Which QB gets the bench first??

I think Favre may be benched by season end. I couldn't believe that guy was still trying to throw a pass from the seat of his pants yesterday. Although Bledsoe and Plummer will soon be looking over their shoulders as well.

I think Farve won't get benched per se. They might tell him they are planning on benching him and give him the option to retire to save face. Maybe even play up an injury or something.

My gut would tell me that Romo might get a crack at Bledsoe's spot sooner than later. He saw a lot of preseason action. He played the entire game against the Seahawks and showed a lot of potential. Parcells was not afraid to play Bledsoe a lot when he was really young. But that brings up a counter argument.... Does Parcell's long history with Bledsoe make him more likely to stick with him out of loyalty? And can a young quarterback be expected to lead a team with Terrel Owens on it? My guess is no. But I don't think any can lead TO. Except Brett Farve, right? Maybe the Cowboys can pick him up on waivers and TO will stop being a malcontent.

I'll tentatively forecast Favre taking limited benchtime to "break in the new guy." Unfortunately, the time by the new kid will increase as the season moves forward...........culminating in an "injury" to Brett, making the new coach look like a psychic for his "forethought."



That's my own little conspiracy theory you know...................we all have one.

the chargers sacked him what 20 times tonight? Man the guys just SUCKS. Bledsoe is running a close second by the comments from The Tuna

"And if you don't believe him, then take it from coach Bill Parcells: This remains Bledsoe's team ... "right now."


....now there's a vote of confidence from the head coach

I'd put Aaron Brooks in pole position for the chop - alot of people like Andrew Walter out there.

Just behind would be Jake Plummer, with a 1st rounder spent on Jay Cutler they might want to get him in the mix early.

Its not as if either QB is in the solid, seasoned pro mold like a Jon Kitna - they both throw alot of bad passes and arent even capable game managers on their off days.
