Bledsoe Quiets Talk of Romo Becoming Starter
Drew Bledsoe probably has quieted the talk of Tony Romo winning the Dallas Cowboys' starting-quarterback job.
Speculation was rampant over the last week or so that Coach Bill Parcells perhaps could make Romo the Cowboys' starter. But Bledsoe made his first appearance of the exhibition season Monday night in Shreveport, La., against the New Orleans Saints, and was sharp. He completed 12 of 16 passes for 156 yards and two touchdowns.
Romo took over and played well for a second straight exhibition game, but Bledsoe already had sent the message that there's no reason for the Cowboys to consider switching to a quarterback who never has thrown a regular-season pass in the NFL.
