Brooks Bollinger Can't Save Your Soul, or Dallas


↵
↵In the FOX pre-game show this morning, Jimmy Johnson intimated that inserting Brooks Bollinger ahead of Brad Johnson would be a terrible decision. Actually, I think he said Bollinger is terrible. Eh, why quibble: he was right. Brad Johnson started bad bad bad (per usual), but at least B.J. didn't offer up an interception on his first pass attempt. (It took, like, six passes for Johnson).
↵
↵Bollinger started the third quarter. He tossed a pick 30 seconds later. Brandon Jacobs scored to give N.Y. a 28-7 lead less than a minute later.
↵
↵To be fair, Bollinger did march Dallas down the field on a long, painfully staccato drive which resulted in a TD pass to Terrell Owens, which is more than Johnson could do. But nothing Bollinger did proved Jimmy wrong. Tony Romo could amputate his entire arm and still be the best Dallas QB.

↵Meanwhile in Denver, Chad Pennington led a masterful clock-killing drive late in the fourth to seal Miami's fourth win. Also, fantasy football karma has caught up with Mike Shanahan's eternal running back platoon, rendering the famous Denver rushing game futile. The Broncos totaled only 14 yards in 12 rushing attempts. Reuben Droughns, Tatum Bell, Michael Pittman, Mike Anderson and Olandis Gary all smile tonight. (Well, Pittman probably isn't smiling considering he is still under Shanahan's spell. Whatever.)↵
