Analysis: Kyle Orton a good grab

There’s a reason why he talks about the importance of “allocating resources” to that position. That’s why the Cowboys are saying hello to Kyle Orton, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Bring it closer to home. How did the Cowboys do when Tony Romo missed three games in 2008? Brad Johnson went 1-2 with one loss to the Rams. If the Cowboys won that game against a bad team – and the defense deserves a lot of blame for that too – they would have made the playoffs.
