Matt Cassel was unimpressive, to say the least, against the Seahawks last week. He only threw for 97 yards for the Cowboys and fell to 0-2 in his first two games as the Dallas starter.
Fortunately, Tony Romo should be coming back to reclaim his starting quarterback position soon:
But until then, there might be a new starter in town. How would Cowboys fans feel about “Stone Cold” Steve Austin lining up under center? He sat down with The Dallas Morning News this week and revealed that he thinks he could help the Cowboys beat the Eagles this week.
"I tell you what," he said, "I got some time on my hands. I could be there Sunday, playing the Philadelphia Eagles. I think I can line 'em up, throw for about 300, 400 yards. Get [Jason] Witten open, get Dez [Bryant] working. A lot of underneath routes. Give [Darren] McFadden the ball a few times. Maybe do a little end-around, fake the reverse pitchout, let me run downfield and Darren can throw me the ball. About 60 yards out, catch it in full stride and boom, spike it over the damn goalpost...Y'all saw me catch all those beers all those years—damn-near never dropped any of them. You know how much money I could have made playing professional football as a tight end? But I can't jump and I can't run fast. That was my problem."
The “I can’t jump and I can’t run fast” part doesn’t sound all that encouraging. But hey, anything is better than watching Cassel get out there again on Sunday, no? If you want "Stone Cold," Cowboys fans, give us a hell yeah.
