The “mystery” of who the Philadelphia Eagles will face on Sunday is solved. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo underwent season-ending back surgery today. Earlier in the week the Cowboys signed Kyle Orton as the starting quarterback this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. I had intended to ask this poll before today because I really did not think Romo would start regardless of what the Cowboys camp said. I know this is a crazy question but which quarterback do you think would have been easier to defeat?
Here is my take.
After the surgery announcement I noticed the Eagles went from 2.5 point underdogs to 6.5 favorites. Even though I am a huge fan of the Eagles I could not imagine them losing to Dallas this Sunday night. So I want to pitch you the poll question to see which quarterback would give the Eagles the better chance to win. I know Romo is a good quarterback but with the Cowboys’ defense as bad as it is and the Eagles offense as potent as it is I did not think the Cowboys had any chance of winning. To me it doesn’t matter who starts as quarterback, I think the Eagles could beat Romo just as easily as they could beat Orton.
