Doc of the Day: Quincy Carter & Tony Romo


With the sports world hitting the pause button, there is an obvious huge void for fans, starving for sports entertainment.

The Dallas Cowboys media team has produced over 25 documentaries over the last five years and has decided to use this idle time to feature many of them, which include Emmy-winning and nominated productions that touch on a wide range of topics and players from all 60 seasons of Dallas Cowboys Football.

Today, we continue the series with "Star Crossed," a feature on the decision to cut Quincy Carter and how it changed the shape of a franchise.

As part of the 2015 Deep Blue lineup, this documentary written and produced by Steve Sullivan, directed by Derek Eagleton with production assistance from Scott Purcel, Roxanne Medina and Nick Eatman.  

In 2004, the Cowboys were coming off a playoff appearance under Bill Parcells and the expectations were high heading into training camp. But it all changed in early August when the team decided to cut starting quarterback Quincy Carter. Not only did that decision change the life of Carter, but one Tony Romo, who was at the end of the depth chart before that move.

This documentary chronicles the lead-up to the decision and the aftermath. Plus, how this decision changed the course of the Dallas Cowboys for the next decade.

(Note: All of the films can be seen either on, or the Cowboys NOW app, featuring Connected TV applications – Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire.)
