Behind a good offensive line he is a top 5 quarterback. Tough, great arm. He has another 2-3 years.

Bill knew that he needed a good offensive line to succeed and didn't give him one. I agree with Pete he
could be force with the right team

glad to see i am not the only one out there that believes this, drew does hold ball to long waiting on big plays but if he has time no one, no one, is more accurate. anyone tell me why p.manning gets so much praise when he has never won a big game , even at tennessee, drew has won 2 big time games

For him 2 succede he needs a GREAT OL and he will do major damage to any team in the league.Remember The Dallas OL is very very unpredictable BUT even with that he won them 9 games last season , i should say at least 5 by himself.The Cowboys record this year, is 9-7 just like last year and we shall see what Romo does in the playoffs.Bledsoe can still play 2-3 more years IF he plays for a team committed to build around him, otherwise he better retire.

I agree with all of you, Bledsoe is great when he has the team covering his back. It amazes me that the second that Romo took over the OL all of a sudden fixed its problems and Romo got all the credit for the team turning itself around and Bledsoe took the blame for everything that went wrong. I think he should tell them all to stick it where the sun don't shine because they turned their backs on him. And Romo isn't any better than he is when the OL has a bad day it is amazing that no one else can see the difference.

Drew Bledsoe is, in my fumble opinion, still one of the best veteren quarterbacks the league has to offer. There's no bigger heart on, or off the field. He has my support regardless of what, or where he winds up!

Drew Bledsoe is still the greatest quarterback( my opinion so everyone else just settle down) in nfl history. he is not done and he will not go out on a down note he will be with another team next year and he will win. teams know what he needs and a team out there is going to get it. so all u critics keep up the negative talk because it will make next year so much sweeter. Drew Bledsoe has At least 3 or 4 more years left and i cant wait till he is back on the field.

Well The Cowboys just lost to the Seahawks and shall i say there is justice somewhere in this world? about 2 months ago, there was a national conspiracy amongest fans,commentators(Joe Buck and Troy Aikmann, Michael Irvin etc...)to just get rid of Bledsoe, and that Monday night the man who drafted him some 14 years ago, publicly embarassed him in front of a national audience.Parcells knew all along that he was going 2 play Romo, remember he played him 3 times in preseason and was clearly using Drew as a backup in case something happened to Romo.If drew knew that before the start of the season, he would have probably asked 2 be released but parcells being the snake that he is just bluffed him perfectly.Then there was all that buddy buddy stuff between Romo and that fool Owens on the sidelines, clearly conspiring against number 11.As a matter of fcat and like Michelle mentioned it, the whole OL gave up on Drew and we had what we had.
Tonight, almost 2 months later the old man Parcells along with Romo and T.O. were eliminated from the playoffs on a final mistake by TONY ROMO.Well Drew, you know life is weird bud...but hey i know you will be back and be better than ever.

i love it when someone talks like they were on the sidelines and have heard everything said by all the players just by watching on tv. Or that Parcells was in on a giant conspiracy. All the interceptions and no mobility, hanging on to the ball, getting sacked in the pocket all the time, had nothing to do with the decision to switch QBs. Bledsoe seems to be a nice guy, but, boohoo, I hope all the money he still gets paid doesn't embarrass him to much. Maybe you are not a cowboy fan, so I can understand that your most important issue is Bledsoe reputation, that's okay. But, in the NFL, you have to know there is NO loyalty to anyone, just wins and Bledsoe was given his chances. I believe no one would say we would have even been in the playoffs if Romo had not taken over. But, I am not the coach, and Jerry Jones doesn't care what I think either.

It's time for him to retire. Yes, he still has a great arm, but his lack of mobility will kill him for the rest (or lack there of) a career.

Look at his career stats. Completions, Yards, he is consistend every year. The only down years he has had in his career are when he got injured with the pats, and then the year after the bills traded away his wide receivers and then expected him to carry the entire organization on his back. Putting romo who should be a career backup, not a starter, at the helm was the bigest blunder I have ever seen from Parcells. If TO actually came to practice he would have had some chemistry with Drew. Look at Glenns numbers before they went to the Homo.

Here is what is going to happen to Bledsoe. First off, I am a huge Bledsoe fan. I had to secretly root for the bills and cowboys because I still am a Pats fan. Anyway, No on is going to build a team around bledsoe. He is old and guys in the locker room don't believe in him. He needs a change or a change in luck. (like Romo going down). Oakland would be a great place for him to go. They have no expectations, no QB, and they have Randy Moss. A guy like that could get motivated again with an arm like Bledsoe's. Detroit, cleveland, and possibly Tampa also need a QB. In fact tampa might be the best place for him. A place to contend for the top spot, and a contender. But he has 2-3 years left and one really good one, but I want him to win a Super bowl before he retires. That way he will be a first ballot HOF.

He really should retire, He will not be able to land a job with a team that has such a huge o-line that will give him time to sit back and throw the ball. Plus in big games he is a choaker.
He needs to look at this for help.

Let's see he brought the Patriots to the Super Bowl twice, won enough games to get into the playoffs (and win) a couple of other times....

cowboys 05 record 9-7, cowboys 06 record 9-7. so because the rest of the nfc sucked this year and romo snuck inot the playoffs he is a hall of famer, but bledsoe goes 9-7 and only missed the playoffs because they couldnt hit a field goal last year he is finished. he will be back next year and he will be better than ever, and as for you naysayers look at the stats and compare the cowboys before drew and stop talking out of your asses.

I've been reading these comments and for the most part agree. Drew Bledsoe is my favorite quaterback and has been since the opening drive of the Pats vs. Packers in the superbowl. He has confidence, leadership and an increbly acurrate and strong arm. Some say he's done and should retire, some say not for 2-3 years. Honestly i believe 4 as a starter. Just think about what he has done. He has led New England to the superbowl twice and the playoffs quite a few times. I know many of you will say one superbowl because of his injury in the01/02 season, but if I recall correctly he was the man to connect a huge pass with David Patten and set up a game winning feild goal ultimately leading them to a superbowl win. The very next year he was traded to Buffalo and had a great year endeing the season with a 86 rating. The next two years despite being pounded at times set 10 passing records for the Bills. 10! I don't think so Brady, Lossman, Romo. Forgett about this mobility shit because he proved his point by rushing two touchdowns this season. His first season with the Cowboys he came out with another 86 rating, romo in his first year starting on Dallas 77. I'm sick of Dallas anyway with all that drama garbage. Go back to Buffalo Drew they are team expected to be big and your better than lossman anyway.

Drew is a class act. He has handled evrything that has happened to him with class and dignity. From pretty boy Brady...idiot Mularky (and Im a Bills fan)...and Romo the clown.
Tampa would be excellent for Drew.
Drew is one of the best all around NFL personalities and QBs the NFL has ever seen.
