Moore trying to emulate Romo

Story body

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Matt Moore is trying to become the next Tony Romo. Moore has taken an initial path similar to the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, in less time. Romo didn't make his first NFL start until his fourth year. Moore got his first start last week in his rookie season. The Panthers host the Cowboys on Saturday night. Romo's first start came last year at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte. He led the Cowboys to 25 fourth-quarter points in a 35-14 win. It cemented Romo as Dallas' starter. He's gotten two Pro Bowl invitations and a big contract now. Moore was cut by the Cowboys earlier this year. He engineered three fourth-quarter scoring drives last week in the Panthers' surprising 13-10 win over Seattle. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)

It appears that this is becoming a trend. Some of us don't feel like going to some crappy "wing joint" to watch our "local" football team play.
