Hutchinson to Start Against Atlanta
Owner Jerry Jones was quick to point out that this move really shouldn't come as a big surprise. "It's pretty obvious that Quincy is playing at the level that he's the starting quarterback. Chad is the backup and we need to see him behind the first group for at least a quarter," said Jones.
Hutchinson has had a solid preseason after spending the last 4 years with Major League Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals. Overall, he has completed 13 of 24 passes for 130 yards and an interception.
Quincy Carter, on the other hand has been phenomenal. Through two games, he has completed 21 of 27 passes for 175 yards and a touchdown. His improvement in his mechanics and decision-making has been remarkable, yet the Cowboys feel like they have to see Hutchinson with the starting unit- at least for one game.
"Every offense that Bruce Coslet has ever run, the backup quarterback has started the third game," Jones said. "This is the way Coslet has always done it, it has been discussed for the last 2 to 3 weeks, and it's a plan we should go with."
While the move isn't expected to start a controversy, what happens if Hutchinson comes out and throws two touchdown passes in the 1st quarter against the Falcons on Saturday?
No one is talking about that possibility for now, but with this team, in this league, anything is possible. And when you consider the amount of money Chad Hutchinson is being paid to watch from the sidelines, it certainly makes you wonder what the intentions are of the organization.
