Say what?

Wow?!?! This is kind of a huge deal. Cowboys QB Tony Romo has been ruled out for the year and the Eagles and Cowboys are scheduled to play for the NFC East crown this upcoming week. The Eagles can clinch the division with a win over Dallas.

Filling in for Romo will be the Cowboys' backup: Kyle Orton. Orton is a veteran QB who's started in the NFL before (and lost his job to Tim Tebow [!!!] at one point). He's considered to be one of the better backup quarterbacks in the NFL, but he's no Romo.

More developments on this situation to come later. For now, react to the (shocking) news here.
