Jerry Jones has recently hinted that he’d like to have a third quarterback in the Cowboys arsenal.
It might not be a traditional quarterback, though. With the Wildcat offense becoming more popular in the NFL, the Cowboys could dip their toe into that pool in 2009.
“We may want to do some things in our offense this year with a third quarterback,” Jones said. “That’s something other than be there as a backup to the second quarterback and be there in case you lose all the quarterbacks. … We could hopefully find a quarterback with a set of skills that we could put some packages in for.”
Never mind that Owner Jones is yet again speaking out on things that should probably be handled by Wade. What should concern us is trying to figure out who Jerry has in mind for this third quarterback slot.
One name curiously tossed around is Michael Vick (definitely not a traditional quarterback). There’s also been mention of trying Cowboy’s receiver Isaiah Stanback in the spot (who played quarterback in college).
What do you think? First, should Jerry even be tinkering with such an offensive scheme? Second, if they do go this route, who could conceivably fill the role?
