Good morning Houston! The good news is the Tony Romo saga is now over but the Houston Texans still need a legit starting quarterback.

The Texans don’t have any other choice but to start Tom Savage now.

It’s interesting that Romo chose CBS over the Texans.  It would have been his best shot to win a Super Bowl.
