Best Answer

Troy Aikman was never benched for performance reasons as a rookie quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in 1989. He started the Cowboys' first three games of the season, but was sidelined by a broken left index finger against the New York Giants in Game 4. He was replaced in the game and for the next month by another rookie quarterback, Steve Walsh. Aikman returned for the last seven games of the season, giving him an 0-11 record as a starter during Dallas' woeful 1-and-15 season. Walsh was at the helm for the team's only win, a 13 to 3 victory over the Washington Redskins.
