Cowboys find their backup QB

Coming to a Dallas strip club near you...

Back in November, the Broncos waived Kyle Orton and three teams put in a waiver bid for his services: The Chiefs, Bears, and Cowboys.  The Chiefs, having the worst record of the three teams, were awarded Orton.  Almost four months later, Kyle Orton is now a Cowboy after signing a 3-year deal to be Tony Romo’s backup.

With a number of teams out there with unsettled QB situations, I’m mildly surprised to see Orton willing to take on a role where he won’t realistically have a chance to compete for a starting job.  Orton is certainly battle tested.  He has 69 starts under his belt, and his teams went 35-34 in those games.

In 2008, Tony Romo broke the pinky on his throwing hand and had to miss three games.  The Cowboys were only able to average 12.3 points in those games with Brad Johnson at the helm, which ultimately led to them missing the playoffs as a result of the 44-6 massacre in Philly.  The Cowboys fixed the backup situation the following year when they brought Jon Kitna aboard.  Kitna was serviceable for a couple seasons before the Cowboys placed him on injured reserve in Deceber with a back injury.

Obviously, they Cowboys have little faith in backup QB Stephen McGee, and his days could be numbered.  If after 3 seasons, if you don’t believe enough in McGee for him to be your 2, is it worth keeping him around to be  your 3 one more year and potentially waste a season in which you can begin grooming another project?  To be determined.

Good move for the Cowboys, although I’ll be interested in seeing the cost here.  Kyle Orton is clearly one of the better backups in the NFL.

  1. There is noticeably a bundle to know about this. I assume you made certain nice points in options also.

  2. Is anybody strong in radio here? We need a colleague who would tell us briefly about the transistor T2. I hope there are radio amateurs here. If it`s not on the subject at all, then I`m sorry. I have to write because I have no choice. PS: if the spelling is not right then also I’m sorry, I’m just 13 years old!….

  17. I believe everything said was very logical. But, think about this, suppose you were to write a awesome title? I ain’t saying your content is not good., however suppose you added a post title to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean Cowboys find their backup QB – Blogging the bEast is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  18. Awesome share! Appreciate it!

I am approaching this from all sides, sonce I recently started my own website with its own blog. In the text boxes I have entered my email address and my website URL.
