It’s been a stressful couple of days in Twitterland for Cowboys Nation.
The week got off to a weird start when quarterback Kellen Moore suffered what seems to be a season-ending injury on Tuesday night. Tyrone Crawford is still having back issues. Zeke Elliott is having hamstring whatchamacallits, and the Cowboys were actually seriously considering trading for Cleveland’s Josh McCown.
You know that scene in the movies where some dude cuts the wire with 0:02 left on the clock and saves everyone’s lives? Allow me to present ESPN’s Ed Werder as “some dude” in today’s movie:
Cowboys source says team no longer rushing to acquire vet QB. Can still give Tony Romo every 3rd day off. More reps to Prescott, Showers
WE GOT OURSELVES A DUB-A-YOO BA-BAY!
The fact that the Cowboys were about to give up assets for a backup position considering the other holes on this team (um hello pass rush, nice to see that you aren’t here) was perplexing to anyone with a brain (sorry Eli Manning, you’re disqualified).
This news also suggests that the Cowboys are:
- Comfortable with Tony Romo’s health status.
- Excited about what they have in Dak Prescott and Jameill Showers.
- Not dumb.
While the Cowboys have called this specific project quits, they’re still working on others.
While we wait for a potential #Cowboys QB trade, keep an eye on OL Ronald Leary. #Saints have pursued him to no avail over past few months
