    Does Parcells go ahead and announce Romo as the #2, or does he give Henson the backup time this Thursday?

    your call before it happens

    -I say Henson gets #3 work this week but that both will play

    your thoughts?

    Doesn't really matter.

    Romo is #2 to start season. Its all over Hensonites. The smart one's are falling back on next spin or excuse on how Henson got beat out by a small, noodle armed undrafted golfer.

    I predict Henson goes #2 and Romo finishes game. Bledsoe out after 1st. We are now gearing up for San Diego. The battle is over at #2. If Henson was in it he'd have played. He is dying for experience. Game experience Parcells gave to Romo to get him ready for season.

    I actually agree with you Nors on the decision having been made, I'm just wondering if Parcells keeps the charade up.

    I'd say Romo has the job sewn up but Henson still gets the work.

    All you gus are wrong. If you go back to what Parcell said originally he said he also would like to give each QB a full half to see what they have. This is just what he did with Romo against the Texans and he will do the same with Henson with the jags. I bet anyone anything that is what he says next conference. He has not made up his mind yet. Although after Romo's performance, Henson beter score big time when its his turn.

    Someone explain to me how the #2 job switched back and forth last year. I never quite understood that.

    I could see the exact same thing happening this year.

    Romo was #2 thru the GB game, Henson was #2 for the next 7, Romo was back for 2 and Henson was #2 for the last game.

    Both were #2 for 8 games.

    i wouldn't be surprised if it broke down like this

    bledsoe plays the 1st quarter
    Romo gets the 2nd quarter
    Henson gets the 2nd half

    Romo's last stint with the 3rd team was not pretty, so I think Parcells has him go 3rd.

    Bledsoe a series or two, Henson the rest of the first half and 3rd quarter, Romo gets the 4th.

    I agree BZ....Bledsoe will not play all that much. The rest of the game belongs to Henson and Romo.

    Last night was the dress rehearsal.......this game is devoted to those players on the bubble.

    NORs is the kinda person that cares more about saying I told you so then being a Cowboy fan.




    As for Henson playing on Thursday. Will not happen. Bledsoe gets the 1st half Romo gets the 2nd half. Henson gets to hold kicks for FGs.

    He might be the 2nd QB out there, but my moneys on Romo starting at 2nd in San Diego.

    Just posting the predictable facts. Sorry if you are caught holding a "short" stick.

    Bledsoe needs some time to get a better feel for this offense. the better he plays, the shorter amount of time he'll play. Henson will come in once the offense is in gear, and the better he plays the longer he'll play - the opposite of Bledsoe. he needs to regain some confidence, not that he has a real shot at the #2 spot, but we don't want to totally break him. once he has either taken wing or crashed and burned, Romo will get the cleanup duty - may be as much as most of the second half.
    under any scenario, the longer Romo plays (if at all) the more likely it is that the coaches think they might be on to something...
