IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) – “We have to play better on offense, and that usually includes better quarterback play,’’ Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said following Dallas’ 30-6 loss on Sunday to New England.
And now, in seeking “better quarterback play,’’ Dallas is making the anticipated change, pulling Tony Romo’s temp Brandon Weeden in favor of Matt Cassel, sources confirm to 105.3 The Fan.
Weeden is the QB of record in the last three Dallas games -and is therefore winless. In fairness, he was a contributor to the Week 2 win at Philly in which Romo injured his collarbone. But Dallas needs to make a change — if not in talent level, than for the benefit of its own psyche — and so Cassel will be the No. 1 guy when the team gets back to practice on Wednesday as it has a bye week and then a trip to the Giants on its schedule.
Romo is expected back by late November, but his injury prompted the trade with Buffalo for the journeyman Cassel.
