Is it Tebow Time in Big D?
Tim Tebow couldn’t land a job with the Philadelphia Eagles despite a few preseason highlights, but some Dallas Cowboys fans immediately turned their attention to the polarizing quarterback Sunday after Tony Romo suffered an injury that’s expected to sideline him for eight to 10 weeks.
Perhaps the most notable Tebow supporter: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
It’s unclear whether the Cowboys have any interest whatsoever in Tebow. They could just roll with Brandon Weeden — not the best option, but whatever — and hope Romo comes back in time for a playoff push. They also could consider other free-agent quarterbacks and/or trade targets.
But that’s no fun. Tebow remains a popular guy, for whatever reason, and him quarterbacking Jerry Jones’ squad definitely would make for good theater, if nothing else.

To be fair, not everyone’s sold on the idea.
