Originally written on cover32 - Cowboys  |  Last updated 4/13/15
The Dallas Cowboys are fortunate to be in a situation where they have a pretty good one and two behind center. Say what you will about that last interception at AT&T Stadium that ended the Cowboys’ 2013 season, yet one interception does not a quarterback make. Kyle Orton is a veteran in this league that has a better resume than most of the guys on cover32′s Top Ten. Without further ado here is the said list and my comments toward each of them. Trust me Orton is worth it.   1. Josh Freeman Literally had one of the worst quarterback performances against the Giants last season. Acts privileged and real questions about his work ethic come into play. 2. Michael Vick Has more than lost a step and can’t stay healthy enough to participate in practice. 3. Matt Cassel Has proven to be good in Belichick’s system but has been nothing more than a serviceable backup. 4. Josh McCown Played remarkably in Cutler’s absence but will be 35 at the start of the season, no thanks. 5. Matt Flynn See Matt Cassel, system guy, nothing more. 6. Tim Tebow 50% of his passes land in the turf, I don’t want Tebow even as a converted Tight End. Also brings a delusional fan base. 7. Vince Young Complete basket case, serious issues in the locker room. 8. Rex Grossman Short arms, career backup who sticks to Kyle Shanahan like glue. 9. Chad Henne Who? Nobody who spent time in Jacksonville…please no. 10. Tavaris Jackson He’s still in the NFL? I’m sorry Ms. Jackson, I am for real.   To sum it all up, none of these free agent quarterbacks are worth giving up a luxury that the Cowboys haven’t had in some time. Kyle Orton is only out the door if the Cowboys draft Romo’s successor. Is McClay the savior for Dallas?
