    Not only that, they paid Davis an arm and a leg to let defenders run by him all year. I wish we played against the Cowboys in 07'

    'cause Johnson's got a SB ring? :icon_shrug:

    I dunno... I think it was just a case of Bledsoe not being happy. So you basically get the same player, but probably a better fit for the locker room in Johnson.

    I think signing Brad Johnson is a good move by the 'Boys. He's an experienced vet with a Superbowl ring who has no problem mentoring a younger QB, but is good enough to hold the line for a little while if need be. Solid backup, and Drew Bledsoe would not be comfortable backing up the guy who took his job. He didn't like it much with Brady in New England and I doubt if he would've enjoyed it with Romo either.

    Johnson's not a bad addition at all for the Boys. Personally I'd rather have him than Bledsoe. The thing about Brad Johnson is you can insert him into the offense and he's not going to lose games for you. He'll manage the game and give you a chance to win. You definitely can't say that about Bledsoe. Drew will lose you games.

    I think the reason for the switch was almost 100% financial. Bledsoe was due a multi-million dollar roster bonus and they didn't want to pay him. Brad Johnson is dog crap and if Romo chokes or gets hurt it could get ugly in Dallas.
