Dak Prescott has been a sensation ever since his first game for the Dallas Cowboys, he’s a front runner for Rookie of the Year alongside Carson Wentz and Ezekiel Elliot. His vision and awareness has been amazing thus far taking the Cowboys to a 4-1 start. Dallas have only had a winning season once in the last five years which is unlike them.
Tony Romo seems to be injured every time and each time the Cowboys haven’t had a reliable replacement for him. That ended when the Dak Prescott was selected in the 4th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He started the opening fixture of the season and it’s safe to say, people were blown away.
Dak Prescott is averaging a 101.5 RPG which is very good for a rookie. He is yet to throw an interception and he’s already guided the Cowboys to a 4-1 start. With 3 other tough teams in their division, the Cowboys are clearly the contenders to win the division.
It was clear from the beginning from Jerry Jones that Prescott would be the starter until Romo comes back from an injury, but with his current form and the confidence flowing through the team, would you really want to disrupt that? At 36 years old, Romo is getting old, he does have the experience to lead the team, however after returning from a back injury, would putting him back in straight away be the correct move?
Personally, I would leave Prescott as the number 1 QB and bench Romo. Yes he has led the team for the last 10 years or so but why change a winning formula. The duo of Elliot and Prescott have taken teams apart and it should stay like that.
