As Tony Romo returns to health, the Cowboys and Dak Prescott rise to the top of the NFC.
Dak Prescott the 4th round Mississippi State draft pick has become an instant sensation, leading the cowboy to a 5-1 start, with a 103 passer rating, a record breaking 176 passes without a pick, and 7 touchdowns.
Tony Romo, the veteran player of the two, first started for the Cowboys over 10 years ago. He has 247 career touchdowns, over 34,000 passing yards, and a .602 winning percentage.
As they near a Sunday night showdown with the Eagles, the question arises; who should they start?
Right now the Cowboys have more momentum than any team in the NFL. They’re riding a their 5 game winning streak and ar stop of their division. Putting in Romo would stop momentum, even if he created wins. But they should most definitely not cut Romo, nor should he retire.
Dak has never been in high pressure situations comparing to the NFL playoffs. He could stutter just like we saw Cam Newton do in Super Bowl 50. And there’s no question the Cowboy’s backup quaterback situation is quite bad, as we saw over, and over, and over again last year. What if Dak is injured, starts playing horribly, or leaves the team? Tony fills that void, at least until the end of this season.
Dak Prescott is the new face of the Cowboys, but the team still needs Tony Romo.
