Should Dallas Cowboys Start Cooper Rush or Dak Prescott?
The Dallas Cowboys are now 3-1 after beating the Washington Commanders 25-10 on Sunday. The win also pushes Cooper Rush's record to 4-0 to start his career - a first for any Dallas Cowboys quarterback. With Dak looking to come back either next week against the Rams or the following week against NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles, should the Cowboys leave Rush in or reinsert Dak into the starting lineup?
I know. Not only is it way too soon to really have this conversation, but the answer statistically is definitely Dak Prescott. In fact, I have him listed as one of the best 5 quarterbacks in Dallas Cowboys history. Again statistically.
But, Rush is showing that he can handle the pressures of being a Dallas Cowboys quarterback. He continues to stay poised, makes good decisions with the ball, and manages the game.
Hey, I'm not the only one wondering. Check out what others are saying on Twitter.
I've said this for several years now. I like Dak. I really do. But he is not the most accurate quarterback out there.
In the Cowboys' first game against the Bucs, Dak's inaccuracy really hurt several opportunities for Dallas to move the ball down the field. He was over-throwing receivers, he was under-throwing receivers, and I don't know if it's because of his ankle injury or what, but he is not taking off to run when he has a chance.
Statistically, there is no doubt that Dak is better. Heck, he's been playing longer. But is he really the better quarterback over Cooper Rush? I guess time will tell.
Wouldn't that be messed up if Cooper does so well that when Dak comes back it becomes a whole "Tony Romo" thing?
