If blank Hall of Fame ballots are a problem, don’t allow blank Hall of Fame ballots

Baseball Twitter blew a gasket Sunday after blogger, J.G. Taylor Spink Award winner and annual Hall of Fame troll Murray Chass revealed he had submitted a blank ballot, selecting nobody for election to Cooperstown, despite multiple worthy candidates for the 2017 class.
All Romo has to do is be better than Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota in the regular season, and the Texans have done that anyway. They did that last year with quarterbacks who combined for 15 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.

Romo could thrive with O’Brien, too. Ryan Fitzpatrick posted 17 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2014, and Hoyer had 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2015. O’Brien has posted three straight 9-7 seasons while starting eight different quarterbacks in that stretch. He deserves something more, and Romo provides that.
It’s going to cost a lot, but that’s the chance you take in bringing this franchise something more than 9-7. Romo will make a lot of headlines — he always does — and that’s an oft-injured quarterback who turns 37 in April and is 2-4 in the postseason. Dallas also likely will ask for in-state overpayment if this move comes via trade.
It’s still a chance Houston should take. It could be the difference in who has the best chance to compete with New England and Pittsburgh in 2017, and perhaps beyond. If they don’t do it, Denver might. They did that with Peyton Manning. Will Houston sit and watch the Broncos do it again?
