For weeks, Bronco Nation has been calling on the Dallas Cowboys (4-9) to give former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore a chance at starting.
According to a recent tweet by Mike Ortiz Jr. of DYSTNow, the very same thing maybe happening inside the Dallas Cowboys locker room:

Matt Cassel dropped to 1-5 as the Cowboys starter this year, falling on Sunday to the Green Bay Packers 28-7. Cassel failed to throw for 200 yards and has only thrown for 1,239 yards this season.
He holds a 73.5 QBR and has only thrown five touchdowns while committing ten turnovers.
Three games remain for the Cowboys and they trail both the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) and Washington Redskins (6-7) by two games in the NFC East. Still not mathematically eliminated, the Cowboys believe that Cassel is their man, despite the ineptitude of their offense with him at the helm.
Former Cowboys coach and current Fox analyst Jimmy Johnson also let his thoughts be known on Sunday:

On top of that, there has even been a Facebook page created calling upon the Cowboys to start Moore.
While none of this is going to sway head coach Jason Garrett and owner Jerry Jones, at this point in the season there is no harm in giving Moore a chance. If anything, the Cowboys should give Moore a shot to see if he can truly succeed at this level or should just hang up the cleats and move on to the next phase of his career.
What do you say, Bronco Nation? Will Moore get a chance to start this season for the Cowboys? Or will they continue to be stubborn and ride a quarterback whose best days are behind him?
