Will the Dallas Cowboys have a quarterback controversy when Dak Prescott gets healthy?
For the second time in 4-years, Cowboys starting quarterback is injured and on the sidelines. Although Prescott has been out, the Dallas Cowboys are 3-0 without him and 3-1 on the season.
Granted, the competition hasn’t been as great, but wins are wins, nonetheless.
With backup QB Cooper Rush leading the Cowboys, the team looks better and plays a little harder. Unfortunately, as a QB in the NFL Prescott’s value to the team is his ability to raise the level of play of the players around him.
Dak, again, hasn’t done much in the critical moments when the games matter. However, because Rush has been the starter for only 3 weeks, I can only speak hypothetically.
With that being said, if Rush can manage to win at least 3 out of the next 4 games, the Cowboys will not pull him for Dak. In sports, the rule is to always go with the hot hand.
This will be a great opportunity for the Cowboys to reset themselves for the future. Additionally, the Cowboys are not Super Bowl contenders and should look to trade Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott.
Furthermore, trading Prescott and Zeke will help clear some cap space and give the Cowboys some much-needed NFL Draft picks. With those picks, the Cowboys could draft a future QB and build an explosive offense.
Again, this is a hypothetical move the Cowboys need to consider. Prescott hasn’t moved the needle any closer to an NFC Championship or Super Bowl appearance. Rush will be a cheaper option that can be the “Bridge QB” for the Cowboys as they transition from Dak and Zeke.
