With the Cowboys leading big late in the game, there was the possibility of former starting quarterback Drew Bledsoe coming in to finish the game. But Bledsoe declined.

"There was no point," Bledsoe said. "Tony was playing great. There was no reason to take him out."

****

Of course when a qB is playing great ina  blow out is precisely when you do sit him. Surprises me Bledsoe took this path.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

I'd have turned down mop up duty as well if I were him.   He had nothing to gain and everything to lose by doing that.

Don't they have a guy behind Bledsoe would could come in?   If not, then Bledsoe should play.   If so, let that scrub finish it out.   There's no need to humiliate Bledsoe.

When Parcells made his decision a few weeks ago to bench Bledsoe, then he needs to stick to it, blow out or not.  Was there a 3rd guy on the Dallas QB depth chart?  I don't know.

If Dallas was concerned about Romo getting hurt, then just run the ball.  I mean, they had him throwing with a 28-10 lead and the game over and done with anyhow.  I think Parcells was pretty lame to keep throwing the ball.

The Bucs were in the game yesterday for 5 minutes and 42 seconds.  After that it was all oblivion.
