Drew Bledsoe was 12-10 as the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys. His twenty-second and final start in a Dallas uniform concluded with him on the bench and Tony Romo under center. That the time had come for a quarterbacking change was obvious to everyone. Bledsoe was the captain of a train-wreck stuck on the vanilla tracks of mediocrity. Through 5 ½ games, Bledsoe had seven touchdown passes, eight interceptions and was sacked 16 times. The Cowboys, 3-3 at that point of the 2006 season, were going nowhere with him at the controls.
