Is Romo the next Favre?

It was Monday, Oct. 23, the sixth game of the 2006 season.

Bill Parcells came striding out of the Texas Stadium locker room at halftime. His Cowboys, quarterbacked by Drew Bledsoe, were trailing the New York Giants 12-7. Without much prompting, Parcells told me: "I'm going to play [Tony] Romo."

"How soon?" I asked.

"Right now."
