Dallas, Texas October 30, 2008 – WiredPRNews.com – Dallas Cowboys second-stringer Brad Johnson will go on to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a hopeful win against the New York Giants on Sunday, November 2nd.
According to the NY Star Ledger, Cowboys Coach Wade Phillips stated that Head Quarterback Tony Romo will, “be back after the bye week.” The bye week begins on Sunday, November 9th.
Romo, who’s two-week absence was due to a hand injury, has expressed hopes to be ready for the Nov. 16th Washington game. Meanwhile, Johnson helped lead the Cowboy’s to their most recent victory against Tampa Bay. “This was an emotional win for our team. It was emotional for me,” stated Johnson. The question remains if he will be able to do the same against the Giants. According to Star Ledger’s Mike Garafolo, the upcoming Giants game should be another conservative, run-heavy offensive game strategy. The New York Giants are well-known for their exceptional defense.
Phillips told USA Today that the coaching staff will evaluate as much as possible to lay out a winning game strategy for the next game. He also stated that he will not rule out the possibility of adding third-string quarterback Jason Bollinger if Johnson continues to struggle and fail to spot open receivers downfield.
