    Not much today...

    Jen-Jen:
    • Parcells is "lying" about the back-up QB situation. Romo is solidly #2.
    • Henson did look better than Romo yesterday, and is improving as he goes but it is not enough to vault him to #2 at this point.
    • Dallas is one play away from starting a different QB. Parcells has been lucky thus far in regards to basically having an injury-free starter.
    • Parcells should be more worried about his first team O that could only muster one 1 first down in 5 possessions against Arizona.
    • Bledsoe better be pretty athletic when the RT basically ushers an opposing player into the backfield.
    • The Bledsoe question will only be answered when the regular season starts.

    From the DUH! files ... you could easily say:

    *insert_any_team_here* is one play away from starting a different QB.

    We know Chicago knows this.

    Hey we could get a 10 page Hostile/Henson thread too. Either way it's all been said before.

    Kristi Scales was on Cowboy radio and said not only is Romo taking all the snaps with the 2nd team in practice, but he's also been the holder for the 1st team field goal unit. Which is another sign that he's pretty far ahead in the competition.

    I don't think any thing has been determined as of yet. Bill keeps saying that and I have no reason to think otherwise at this stage. Both QB's just need to keep on working hard everything else will take care of itself

    Romo has been playing well according to reports, but if all of a sudden he starts having problems as things become more exotic and Henson continues to improve, why wouldn't he change his mind?

    With Bledsoe having a bad foot I'm hoping he plays only a series or two so we can get a long look at Henson and Romo with our starters or alteast some of the starters because that wont happen in the 3rd preseason game so whatever decision for #2 will be made after this week.

    That is why after only 1 pre-season I highly doubt everything is set in stone. I don't want that to sound as if I'm hoping Romo runs into problem that is not the case I will say I hope Henson continues to show improvement that is being reported.

    Remember that Bill said don't look into anything into Quincy starting back to back preseason games in front of Hutch. So much so that Mickey proclaimed that Hutch had won the starting job and the Cowboys were merely playing Quincy with the 1st team because they wanted to give him a chance to fight for a roster spot. Claimed he had sources inside the organization that told him this, no less.

    I tend to find Bill's statements far more vague and misleading than his depth charts.

    I remember that I'm just stating after 1 pre-season game I highly doubt that anything is set in stone. Bill keeps saying don't read much into any of this yet people continue to spin this to fit their own arguments. We have 3 games to go before we hit the reg season and I expect many things to change as we continue to get ready for the season.

    I don't think anything is set in stone yet, however, I still find it funny that some are still holding out hope that Romo will fail and Henson will suddenly take over the #2 spot, when it has been obvious by all accounts who the #2 Qb has been all pre-season long.

    Now, having said that....it's still plenty early in TC....

    It just seems that some need to start coming to some realizations.

    Who are you talking about, Kristi Scales or JFE?

    The people sourced in this topic include the beat writer for the team and the sideline reporter for the organizations radio broadcast. Both of whom have no agenda other than to convey to their audience what they see in camp in practice everyday. If they can't portray any more insight into the team than what Bill says in his press conference, then their jobs are irrelevant.

    I hope Romo continue to show improvement in his game as well as Henson I think that is very important to this ball club, who ever wins it wins it I have no problem with that at all but I do think people are place the cart before the horse at this stage. We have played 1 pre-season game and I think a lot of positions are still up for grabs and how these players respond over these next 2 to 3 games will determine everything.

    Agreed....

    Are people saying that reports have an agenda in this issue like some do on here?

    Like these reporters don't know that if they aren't as accurate as they can be, that people will begin shying away from their columns.

    The conspiracy against Henson continues...........
