Holder (gridiron football)

holderHholding
Dallas Cowboys – When Tony Romo was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, he was their backup quarterback, and as the backup quarterback, part of his job was to be the team's holder. Romo was replaced by the punter in 2010, but due to many mishandled snaps, which resulted in missed field goals, Romo returned as the team's official holder. The Cowboys hired a more experienced holder, Brian Moorman, in 2012; Moorman left the team at the end of the season. Throughout the 1990s, starting tight end Jay Novacek was the usual holder on kicks. Oakland Raiders – The Raiders' Matt Schaub was used as the holder during the 2014 season.

Jason Witten

Undrafted free agent Tony Romo was another rookie who also arrived in Dallas in 2003 and would go on to become Witten's teammate throughout their careers, as well as his roommate during future team training camps and travel games. Entering the league as a 20-year-old rookie, Witten started only seven of the 15 games he played in. On September 7, he made his NFL debut in a 27–13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, where he had a single reception for 13 yards. Overall, he registered 35 receptions for 347 receiving yards and one touchdown.

Sam Hurd

He recorded his first NFL reception on Tony Romo's first NFL pass (33 yards) against the Houston Texans. Four weeks later, he got his first start against the Arizona Cardinals, recording four catches for 42 yards and also caught a touchdown pass that was negated due to offensive pass interference against Patrick Crayton. He ended the season with 5 catches for 75 yards 16 special teams tackles (tied for second on the team), one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. In 2007, he was the team's third receiver, tallying 19 receptions for 314 yards, one touchdown and 16 special teams tackles (sixth on the team).

Drew Bledsoe

Bledsoe
He also recorded a message to both Tony Romo and Dak Prescott in 2017 in his home, which also showed his red wine collection. In his spare time, Bledsoe works with many philanthropic organizations. Bledsoe is the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Summit High School in Bend, Oregon, having held the position since 2012. While Bledsoe has thrown for a high number of yards and attempts, a frequent criticism is that they are based on volume (attempts, completions, yards) rather than efficiency (passer rating, TD-to-INT ratio, yards per attempt) proving only that he has thrown a great number of times, not that he has thrown well.

Super Bowl XLII

XLII2007Super Bowl
After beating the fourth-seeded Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24–14, the Giants upset the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys 21–17, when McQuarters intercepted a pass from Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in the end zone as time expired. New York advanced to the Super Bowl with a 23–20 overtime win over the second-seeded Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game, which was the third coldest game in NFL history (−1 °F at kickoff, −24 °F wind chill) with an interception by Corey Webster that set up Lawrence Tynes's game-winning 47-yard field goal. The field goal was the longest by a visiting kicker in Lambeau Field postseason history. This turned out to be the final game Brett Favre played for the Packers.

Ben Roethlisberger

Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger's 32 touchdown passes ranked third in the NFL, behind Tony Romo and Tom Brady, while his 104.1 passer rating was second only to Brady. Roethlisberger also set a new Steelers single-season record with 32 touchdown passes. In a week 15 rematch, the Steelers were defeated by the Jaguars in the AFC Wild Card game, 31–29. Roethlisberger finished third in Comeback Player of the Year voting, behind the Patriots' Randy Moss and the Dallas Cowboys' Greg Ellis, who won the award. Roethlisberger played in his first Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

Vinny Testaverde

TestaverdeTestaverde, Vinny
Parcells cites Testaverde's presence in Dallas as having been important to the development of their former starter Tony Romo. At the time, his 3,532 passing yards and 297 completions were the third best total of his career and the third most passing yards in Dallas Cowboys franchise history. He also tied the franchise record for 300-yard passing games in a season with three and became the fifth quarterback in league history to pass for over 300 yards at forty years of age. As injuries on September 25, 2005 knocked both Chad Pennington and backup Jay Fiedler out for the 2005 season, the New York Jets re-signed Testaverde on September 27, 2005.

Bill Parcells

They were able to clinch a playoff berth as the 5th seed in the NFC, eventually losing 21–20 against the Seahawks in Seattle on January 6, on a botched hold by Tony Romo during a field goal attempt. Parcells would finish his Dallas stint with a 34–30 record and no playoff wins. Parcells' greatest accomplishment as Cowboys coach was the development of QB Tony Romo. He signed Romo in 2003 and developed him into a Pro Bowl quarterback by 2006.

Drew Henson

After the surprising release of starter Carter on August 4, he began the first 6 games of the season as the third-string quarterback behind Tony Romo. He was promoted to the backup position behind veteran Vinny Testaverde in the seventh game against the Detroit Lions. In the tenth game against the Baltimore Ravens, he replaced an injured Testaverde in the fourth quarter, completing all of his 6 passes for 47 yards and one touchdown.

Quincy Carter

Before Carter's release, it had been projected that he had an edge over Testaverde for the starting role and that third-string quarterback Tony Romo would be waived. League sources eventually revealed that Carter had been released after failing a drug test. He'd already flunked two previous tests and would have to be suspended for the first four games of the season. Following his exit, Cowboys coach Bill Parcells shed some light into Carter's situation at Dallas: "I became pretty close with Quincy personally, and this kid had a lot of good qualities", Parcells said. "He was smart. He understood it. But I just couldn’t save his ass. I really couldn’t. "You just didn’t have the time.
