It's Already the Week of the Backup Quarterback
It’s only Week 3 in the NFL, but the injury bug has already hit hard across the league.
This is especially true of the quarterback position.
Several premier chuckers -- and Jay Cutler -- have gone down.
So it's the proverbial next man up in group form.
As noted, then, most dire sitatuin is that of the Cowboys, who are holding down top spot in The Shield's weakest division.
So, now the 'Boys have a fallbackup and won't be totally at the mercy of Brandon “Which guy is on my team?” Weeden.
Of course, this isn't the first time Romo has missed games, nor is it likely to be the last. They know the drill.
Things aren’t much better in the Big Easy, either, as the Saints and their 0-2 record sit dead last in the NFC South.
In his place will be the seasoned backup and possible fortune teller, Luke McCown. Yes, it's come to that.
In Chicago, Da Bears will be without the human interception machine, Jay Cutler.
Taking over will be Jimmy Clausen, which is a shocker, mainly because most of the Free World had no idea he was still in the league.
This will be the second time dude's taken over for the chain-smokin' slinger, as he was given the job late last season during the team’s collapse. Maybe he'll do well enough to get Da Bears out of their 0-2 hole, and possibly convince the team to dump Jay and his crippling contract and hire Silent Bob, who'd be an upgrade over either one of them.
The NFL season takes a toll on the body, even that of the heavily defended quarterbacks.
Hopefully, the regulars will come back sooner rather than later.
If not for their team’s sake, for that of their paying fan bases.
