When everyone was going crazy about the Tony Romo’s non-news, I advised everyone to relax.  I thought the rumors about Romo to broadcasting were a pipe dream. I called a few local shows and said:

  1. After the Tony Romo domino falls (assuming he would be a Bronco or Texan), free agency will shape out.
  2. I will be pissed at the Texans if they do not have a contingency plan at quarterback

I was wrong, totally wrong on dominoes falling after Tony Romo’s decision.   

I’ve tried to wrap my brains around the Texans clearing cap space for Romo only to end up with Tom Savage.  Am I the only one who sees a wild swing in talent?  Going from Romo to Savage is like expecting the doctor to say,” you have a cold” but instead tells you, “you have AIDS.”

We all know the popular QB names available in free agency but there are also other options via trade.  A part of me wonders if Brock Osweiler has scared the daylight out of the Texans to make any moves in free agency.  Are the Texans shell shocked?

It looks like the Texans did not have a contingency plan in the event Romo fell through.
