No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

Bye, Bye Bledsoe

That's right, I'm calling it now - Dallas Cowboy (soon-to-be-backup) quarterback Drew Bledsoe should call it a career and retire at the end of this season.

The time has come. It's actually past the time for Drew to hang 'em up. Frankly, let's not sully a Hall of Fame career any further.

Trust me, Drew, this hurts me more than it hurts you. But I just can't watch you get sacked on the field and abused in the pressbox anymore. You and I both know that the sacks have more to do with a crappy-ass offensive line than your legendary immobility in the pocket. But why take the punishment? Why listen to fans chanting for Romo? It's time.

I have been a huge Drew Bledsoe fan since back in the Patriots days. And I thought the five-time pro-bowler was treated quite shabbily by Belichick and co., losing his starter's job to Tom Brady after an injury. But Belichick wanted a younger arm and didn't care how many dues Bledsoe had paid. So Brady's a Superbowl MVP and Drew has to listen to Terrell Owens bitch and whine all Sunday afternoon.

Bledsoe was pulled from Monday night's game at the half, and if Romo was anything like Vince Young the starter's job would be his. Romo is no Vince Young, so Bledsoe may have a few NFL starts left in him yet. But the writing is on the wall and it's time for Drew to move on. He couldn't get it done in Buffalo, and Dallas is looking dodgy. The end is nigh. And since drew is famously loath to mentor young quarterbacks, he seems like a bad pick to stick around as a backup. One look at him on the sidelines last Monday tells you all you need to know about his relationship with his young backup.

So, that's it folks. Bye bye Drew. It's been fun.
