It was reported by ProFootballTalk.com today that Wade Phillips is thinking about giving Tony Romo his old job back. What job is that?? Being the holder for Nick Folk’s field goal attempts. How can anyone not think back to the playoff game in Seattle when Romo dropped the snap on a field goal that could have won the game. During Wednesday’s practice Romo was holding for Nick Folk.
“We feel like we need to do something, whether it’s the whole operation itself or some of the parts,” head coach Wade Phillips said. “We’ve got to get more confidence from our kicker. We need to do better. There’s a possibility we’ll make a change this week as far as the holder is concerned.”
What does Wade mean “the whole operation”? The way I read it is that Wade is giving Folk one more chance. If he is still inconsistent then it will be the kicker who is changed. It was also reported that punter Matt McBriar has mishandled a few snaps, but I’m not sure if that is the case or if there is something wrong with Folk. Is it confidence or could it still be effects from his off season surgery.
In other news reported by DallasNews.com is that Flozell Adams has been fined $50,000 by the NFL for his dirty hit from behind on the Giants Justin Tuck. Adams also received a letter from the NFL saying that another incident could result in a suspension.
Martellus Bennett and Deon Anderson did not take part in practice Wednesday. Bennett suffered a concussion during the Giants game and Anderson has a bruised knee. Also, Terrence Newman had an MRI done on his knee, but took part in full practice.
