Animated Trivia: James Hanna’s Touchdown vs. San Diego

Brandon Weeden found James Hanna for the Cowboys' only score against San Diego.

Brandon Weeden found James Hanna for the Cowboys’ only score against San Diego.

The Dallas Cowboys did not play starters Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, DeMarco Murray, or Jason Witten against the San Diego Chargers. That meant we saw Brandon Weeden, Joseph Randle, Terrance Williams, and James Hanna.

The Cowboys lost 27-7 in a game featuring no defense by the Cowboys. San Diego did not have a single incomplete pass until the beginning of the fourth quarter.

As you can see from the GIF, Hanna scored the Cowboys’ lone touchdown. Given the lack of other highlights, here is some trivia about Hanna:

  • Hanna is one of two players from the University of Oklahoma on the Cowboys’ roster. The other is, of course, Murray. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have six players who played at Oklahoma State on the roster right now.
  • The Cowboys selected Hanna in the 6th round (#186 overall) of the 2012 draft. He was among 12 tight ends taken in that year’s draft. Another of those tight ends was Ladarius Green, who had two receptions for the Chargers tonight.
  • Hanna has never scored a touchdown in a regular season game, having caught just 20 career passes in two seasons. However, he did score seven touchdowns for the Sooners in 2010. That was the year that Weeden threw 34 touchdowns to the likes of Justin Blackmon at Oklahoma State.
  • This was Weeden’s first game since starting for the Cleveland Browns against the Jacksonville Jaguars on December 1, 2013 in a 32-28 loss for the Browns.
  • True or False? This was Hanna’s first preseason touchdown of his career.
  • True or False? Hanna did not catch a single pass during the 2013 preseason.

The Franchise Career Record Tony Romo Might Break in 2014

Tony Romo can set his sights on a new team passing record in 2014.

Tony Romo can set his sights on a new team passing record in 2014.

Tony Romo is not likely to play in the Cowboys’ first preseason game on Thursday night as he tries to stay healthy for the team’s season-opener.

If he can stay healthy during his eighth full season as a starter, Romo could break a significant franchise career record.

He already has the most career touchdown passes, and his career 95.8 passer rating his higher than any other starter in team history.

The next mark would be career passing yards. He currently has thrown for 29,565 yards, putting him 3,377 behind Troy Aikman. The only time Romo has thrown fewer than that since 2007 was 2010, when he was limited to six games because of an injury.

Here is a list of the top 10 Dallas passers by career passing yards.

It will take Romo at least two seasons to surpass Aikman for most career attempts and completions.
