Cowboys | Parcells does not expect a QB controversy

Todd Archer, of the Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys QB Drew Bledsoe has faced many challenges in his NFL career and now he faces potential competition from backup QB Tony Romo. "To be honest, I have no problem people talking up Tony, and he deserves to be talked about," Bledsoe said. "I think he has a long future in the league, but from my standpoint, I'm approaching this as I'm getting ready to play the season. And I'm doing everything I can to make sure that as the quarterback here I'm giving us the best chance to win the ballgame." Head coach Bill Parcells headed off talk of a quarterback controversy Monday, Aug. 14, by saying Bledsoe will start the Sept. 10 opener at Jacksonville, barring injury. Parcells did not say Bledsoe would start next week's preseason game at Shreveport, La., against New Orleans, but only because the coaching staff has not gone over the plan yet. Romo said he has thought about his future, especially with the ongoing talks. "I want to be a Dallas Cowboy," Romo said. "I like it here. The organization has been great to me. I would love to say I spent all my years as a Dallas Cowboy and finish my career here. That would be a highlight."
