    If Bledsoe does not prove in Preseason that he is far better than Romo.
    Why not start Romo and never look back.
    Bledsoe would better as the veteran backup QB to tutor the yound QBs.

    We can't move forward until we allow one of the young QBs start.

    If Bledsoe doesn't prove anything, then we're in serious trouble!

    According to reports, Bledsoe has been well ahead of either Romo or Henson.. I dont really think that Bledsoe is the tutor type when he thinks he can still play effectively

    That could singlehandly kill our playoff hopes. Bledsoe gives us our best chance to when. Seriously.

    One set of reports says that. Another that I read says the complete opposite. What's true... who knows? I guess we'll judge by their performance in games.

    Ok lets try and keep the Bledsoe bashing down untill he plays in the regular season not some over blown scrimmage.

    I hope that he is well ahead of the others personally.. As much as I would like to think that either Romo or Henson could start for a prolonged period, I just have my doubts at this point. Of course I did not get to see the preseason game last weekend.. like Big Dog said.. I can not wait til monday night rolls around..

    You know what, Tony Romo may develope into a good QB for us. In fact, I'd love it. But let's face some facts here. While Tom Brady has been brilliant, find me another QB in the league right now who got picked in the 6th round whos out there doing what Brady does. Romo went undrafted. Now he's obviously a decent enough QB to stick around and all, but remember, the odds arent on his side. Take a top 5 QB pick, and you're probably looking at 50 50 chance of him being great, or, well, not so great. Now take a guy who doesnt get drafted, and your odds of him being great diminish by a lot. I'm not trying to say he can't do it because he wasn't drafted, but I sure am saying it's a hell of a long shot.

    Bledsoe would have a ring if it wasn't for Desmond Howard, count on it. Bledsoe led the Bills to a 9-7 record in a very tough AFC East...granted Buffalo has a good defnse and a good running game...but they are not on par with Baltimore's or Tampa Bay when they won with "no name" qb's. Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson definately don't lead the Bills to the playoffs last year. No matter how you cut it, QB play is very important in the NFL...Bledsoe had a decent sized part in the Bills record, and late stretch run.

    And I know that QB's can only gain experience by playing, but between Henson and Romo, does 2 series and 1/2 half of a game, all on Henson, really get you that excited. Romo isn't Carson Palmer. He wouldnt come in and lead us to an 8-8 record evne.

    I was against the Bledsoe signing, but man, some of you guys are nuts..

    Bledsoe has been a very good QB in this league for 10+ years, and definitely gives us the best chance to win.

    I'm rooting for a 10/12, 120 yd, TD game from Bledsoe on Monday, not so much to be happy about his success, but more for the comedic value of everyone bashing Bledsoe now, praising him on Tuesday morning.
