While the injury wrecked Dallas Cowboys are still scouting for some of the key spots in their team, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has pitched an idea for the side’s quarterback position.
Abbott in his tweet mentioned Tim Tebow as the replacement for Tony Romo, as the quarterback. His tweet read, “Bittersweet victory for @Cowboys. Win game but lose @TonyRomo. Maybe Dallas will sign @TimTebow. #NFL.”
Head Coach Jason Garett has already found replacement for the team’s quarterback position in Brandon Weeden, following Romo’s partial exit from the tournament. The Texas governor is considered one of the few powerful men in Texas apart from Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones.
NFL media writes that Tebow could find himself another camp in the upcoming offseason and it would be interesting to note if he trades the microphone for a football this fall. The former Florida Gators star has already took in his former role as an analyst for SEC Network.
However, The fans feel fortunate that Gov. Abbott is not in the driving seat for the Cowboys. According to Fox Star reports, chances of Tebow lifting the side up looks rather gloomy with simulation figures not matching the wining mould. The report asserts that the governor should stick to politics while the Cowboys give the quarterback position to Weeden.
Fox Sports had earlier reported about Romo’s fractured collarbone and Dez Bryant’s Broken foot. While Romo will sit out in the reserved bench for at least two months, Bryant is advised to take minimum of ten weeks for his full recovery.
Veteran Ironman, and one of the most valuable players of Cowboy’s, Jason Witten had suffered an upsetting injury in their last game on Sunday. Chances of Cowboy’s making in the playoffs look bleak as they have already seen some key players, sit out in the dug out, just two weeks into the tournament.
