Tony Romo went out with an injury in the preseason this year and actually things could not have gone any better for the Dallas Cowboys. Now Tony Romo is almost completely healthy and the big question is will the Cowboys start Romo, or surprise rookie quarterback Dak Prescott? Cowboy fans, and fans around the NFL, have been wondering this for the past few weeks and should get an answer very soon.
What all rookie quarterback, Dak Prescott, has done, in Tony Romo's absence, is lead the Cowboys to a 7-1 record and first place in the NFC. If you ask me, “If it is not broke, don't fix it,” and the Cowboys have been rolling as of late. "The key thing I want to emphasize is we probably are never going to have this totally sorted out," Jones said, during his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan. "We're going to play it by ear, play it as it comes. We can do that." The Cowboys know a healthy Romo would be tough to deny, but Prescott has been on a terror lately and he is the future of the Cowboys.
Jones said he expects Romo to challenge for the starting job, but the owner stopped short of saying that the veteran is still the team's No. 1 quarterback. "I know how bad he wants to compete," Jones said. "Any time he's limited because of injury, I hate that. It's always has been the biggest downer for a competitor. "On the other hand, for Tony, there isn't anything more important than being on a team that is capable of winning and competing for the big prize. The Cowboys have not been in first place in the NFC in years and they know they have something good going. If the front office comes in when Romo is completely healthy and makes the change, fans will wonder what the heck is going on.
I can only imagine how bad it would be if the Cowboys make the change and then start losing games. One thing is for sure, the Cowboys are off to a great start and only time will tell what will happen with this whole situation. I think many other NFL teams wish they had this same dilemma going on in their organization. The scariest thing about the Dallas Cowboys this year is that rookie quarterback, Dak Prescott, has been doing this without the help of all-pro receiver, Dez Bryant. He just came back last week, against the Browns, and still was not a big factor. When he is fully healthy, they will be scaring opposing defenses throughout the NFL.
