Is there any chance we’ll see quarterback Kellen Moore fill in for Tony Romo, who is out for the rest of the year, over the remaining few games of the season? A couple of staff writers from DallasCowboys.com weighed in on the idea.
“I don’t think he does until the math says that they are no longer in the playoff hunt,” Bryan Broaddus said, per the Cowboys’ official website. “I do know that Scott Linehan really likes him so if given the opportunity it might be a good fit. Might as well see what you have going forward for next season.”
However, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com thinks otherwise because Dallas is still hoping for the postseason.
“Because this division is so bad, the Cowboys aren’t technically out of it yet,” Helman said. “Now, you may not want to hear that, but you know Jason Garrett is going to do everything he can to get this team into the postseason. If the Cowboys make some kind of run at it, I think you’ll see Matt Cassel the whole way. Otherwise, I think Moore will play when they’re mathematically eliminated – maybe Week 16 or Week 17.”
The Cowboys have a young prospect in Moore, who has a 50-3 college record. Cassel has had a chance at starting this season with a 0-4 record at the position. Just saying.
