Johnson Best For Cowboys

Forty year old quarterback Brad Johnson is now 1-1 as the starting QB until Tony Romo's pinkie is ready to go. After another minimal offensive effort from Johnson and the 'Boys, Head Coach Wade Phillips had a tough time saying the former Super Bowl winning QB Johnson would remain the starter in Big D.
Brooks Bollinger is their only other option at this point and to me, that is really no option at all, so stick with the guy that can't throw it in front of his receivers on "fly" patterns, but will get rid of it to his outlet receivers to keep his team out of a lot of long yardage situations.
Brad Johnson hasn't had the physical ability to be the everyday starter since he was replaced in Tampa the season following the Super Bowl, but he has the savvy to be the "stop gap guy" to keep the Cowboys in the hunt for another week or so.
Watch out for the Cowboys offense when Romo gets back in there. With Roy Williams and Terrell Owens on the outside and Whitten at tight end, they will be a high flying circus once again.
