Dallas: Can the Cowboys find Romo a backup?

The 2008 Dallas Cowboys had one major flaw; unfortunately for them, it was a problem severe enough to keep them from making the playoffs. Backup quarterback Brad Johnson was a bad fit stylistically for the offense, and when Tony Romo went down with a broken finger, Johnson and the Cowboys' offense could muster only 41 points in three games, including a 34-14 loss to the lowly Rams.
