Things couldn’t get much worse for the Dallas Cowboys.
If a 1-4 start wasn’t bad enough, the Cowboys looked on as Romo was driven into the ground and stayed there holding his left shoulder.
He was eventually removed from the game with what the team was calling a left shoulder injury. Little did they know the news would get worse, as the injury is now being called a “broken clavicle” which will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
After Romo’s departure, having already thrown one touchdown pass, Jon Kitna came in as the team’s backup and didn’t fare much better. If Kitna can’t handle the starting duties, the Cowboys could go looking for a replacement and there could be no shortage of names on the list.
Most people here, in Dallas, were already of the opinion that the Cowboys were long out of the Super Bowl hunt, but, with the right replacement, maybe they could come from a long shot to a frontrunner, at least for the wild card.
