I thought for sure that Brandon Weeden was going to be the guy for Dallas in Romo’s absence. But after a 30-6 blowout by New England, that has all changed.
“Cassel’s experience in multiple-check systems and his background having played in a similar offense under Norv Turner in Minnesota will allow Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan to open up the offense. While Weeden did fine in spot duty, he’s still very much a spread-offense quarterback that struggles with progressions and full-field reads, Breer added. The news comes two days after a 30-6 loss to the Patriots, the Cowboys’ third straight setback since Brandon Weeden took over for an injured Tony Romo.”– Report by Dan Hanzus
