Oh no, Romo...get your replacement advice here!

I feel for you, Tony Romo owners. If you missed the news that Romo broke his left collarbone and could possibly be out for the season, then scope out the injury summary here. Now Romo owners I'd like to tell you a tale of my Week 7 quarterbacks. With Peyton Manning and Matt Schaub on bye and my backup (Vince Young) injured, I had some serious holes at QB this past week. I admitted on here a few days ago that I was starting Josh Freeman in one league but what I didn't admit was that I was starting Ryan Fitzpatrick in another league...against the Ravens. By all accounts, a horrific idea. And yet! Freeman and Fitzpatrick both led me to victory (the latter putting up tremendous stats) and while this might have just been a lucky week for me, I would encourage you to be a little bold and play the QB roulette each week. A little stressful but you never know when a free agent will surprise. As Matt Schauf notes in his RapidReactions article, Fitzpatrick is the only QB to throw for more than 1 TD in each game this season. Not too shabby, my friends, not too shabby.

Sara, I can't duplicate your magic of last season, but hopefully I can go wire to wire as you did last year. Thanks for the mention!
