Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he’d like to have a backup quarterback with more experience than Stephen McGee. Then again, the Houston Texans made the playoffs and won a game behind a third-string quarterback with no experience.
“So I do know it can happen,” Jones said, giving reporters a wink Monday as he spoke at the Senior Bowl. “An inexperienced one can get you pretty far down the road.”
But turning serious, Jones said it’s important for the Cowboys to get a veteran to replace backup Jon Kitna, who retired. Kitna played the last 10 games in 2010 when Romo was hurt and stepped in during the Week 2 game in San Francisco this season.
“We like the progress of McGee,” Jones said. “Probably if somebody else has to really start taking snaps, we’d like to see some more experience.”
