Cowboys to consider QB change during bye week
By Darryn Albert
After a 30-6 demolishing at the hands of the New England Patriots on Sunday in which Weeden threw for just 188 yards on zero touchdowns and one interception, Garrett said that he would consider making a change at quarterback during the Cowboys’ Week 6 bye, per Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Weeden is 0-3 ever since taking over as the Cowboys starter for an injured Tony Romo. In those three games, he has posted a mediocre 85.7 quarterback rating and thrown for just one touchdown as opposed to two interceptions.
Bleacher Report NFL Insider Jason Cole reported on Monday that it is “highly likely” Cassel is named the starter for Week 7 against the New York Giants.
Cassel was a nightmare under center for the Vikings last season and hasn’t looked like a viable NFL starter in quite some time now. But given how underwhelming Weeden has been ever since Romo went down, the only option left for the Cowboys until Romo and Dez Bryant return seems to be praying that a breath of fresh air provides some answers for this floundering offense.
Oh and that crow is probably going to taste real good for owner Jerry Jones.
