Brooks sticks a fork in Brad Johnson

6 posts in this topic

Brooks Bollinger will be the Cowboys' new backup quarterback when the team returns from its bye week to play Washington on Nov. 16, coach Wade Phillips said.

Tony Romo is expected to start against the Redskins after missing three games with a broken pinkie. Bollinger will be the No. 2 quarterback, and Brad Johnson will be the inactive third-stringer who can play only if the top two get injured.

After watching the Cowboys muster just 87 yards in the first half against the Giants, the decision couldn't have been difficult. Johnson completed five of 11 passes for 71 yards before halftime. Two throws resulted in interceptions.

Bollinger took over after the break and threw an interception on his first pass attempt. However, he bounced back to finish the game 9-of-16 for 63 yards and led a 75-yard scoring drive capped by Terrell Owens' 8-yard touchdown catch.

Why is Johnson even in the league still?? He is HORRIBLE. One backup I think has looked good was Byron Leftwich, looked as good as Big Ben last night.

I agree, time for Brad to retire. He sure seems like a classy guy though, down to earth and did get the ring with Tampa Bay Tampa Bay, so good for him. Wonder if he would ever apply for a coaching or coordinator role.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
