Sure sounds like it's possible. Wade Phillips is committed to Brad Johnson remaining the starter. But what if Johnson continues to struggle getting this offense going?
Could Bollinger get some action? Wade said he would be discussing the state of the offense with the coaches and making some of his own scheme suggestions this afternoon.
"We're looking at one game," Phillips said. "It's what we can do to win this one game. Whatever that is we will discuss it."
Phillips said the possibility was unlikely right now of Bollinger replacing Johnson in the game if he struggles. But he seemed to leave the door open that it was at least getting kicked around. Things could change in practice this week if Bollinger gets more first-team reps and the staff realizes the needs for more mobility against the Giants' fourth-ranked defense that leads the NFL in sacks.
It took Wade several questions about Johnson before he finally said he was the starting quarterback Sunday. Cowboys fans before you get too excited about Brooks, do you remember the preseason game this season against the Vikings? Yeah, that was some of Brooks fine work for the Vikes that night.
