09:10 AM ET 07.27 | Tony Romo is in on-field command of the Dallas Cowboys offense in training camp, but he might not begin the team???s preseason schedule that way. Coach Jason Garrett revealed in an exclusive interview with 105.3 The Fan that Romo may not play at all in the Cowboys' preseason debut Aug. 4 in the nationally-televised Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. "It's one of those deals where I suppose he could play five plays or whatever, but we might lean to no plays," Garrett said. "But the clock starts on our "1's" (first-teamers) in Week 2 of the preseason. So that's not going to be Tony's game. That's going to be a Nick Stephens game and an Alex Tanney game," Garrett said, suggesting it's likely that veteran backup Kyle Orton will join Romo in wearing a ball cap all night.

Hail to the Redskins!

I think the HOF game as well as the Probowl are both doomed in the modern money hungry incarnation of the NFL. They just don't make sense financially so they're going away.

Baseball did away with MLB teams playing a HOF game about five years ago. Not that anyone noticed and neither would any NFL fan notice if the NFL did the same.

I'd like to make a pithy comment but I can't think of anything that rhymes with Romo.

ProBowl still does nice ratings so that will stay.

But the HOF game is an invitation for injury. As are all pre-season games.

Hall of Fame and Tonoy Romo should not be mentioned in the same sentence!
