Jerry Would Welcome Rush-Dak QB Controversy

FRISCO, Texas – Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has seen this script come out before. And he’s not against seeing it again.

Right now, Cooper Rush is about to start his third career race and his second this season instead of Dak Prescott.

Even after Rush helped the Cowboys beat the Bengals last week, a quarterback controversy has been quietly talked about.

But if for some reason it escalates to that status, Cowboys owner/GM Jerry Jones said he would “of course” welcome it.

Speaking to reporters in an impromptu media session on Thursday, Jones said he would be happy to adopt a scenario that would force the Cowboys to make a decision about which QB to play.

“That means we had won,” Jones said. “If (Rush) comes in and plays like Prescott played… Rush, who played well in the next games. I’d walk to New York to get that.”

Jones refers to 2016 when Prescott replaced an injured Tony Romo to start the season, winning 10 out of 11 games, forcing the team to stick with the rookie, who led the Cowboys to a 13-3 record and first place finish. in the NFC playoffs.

“Wouldn’t it be a good thing if you had a dilemma which way to go?” asked Jones. “You do that when he gets 10 wins. The same thing happened to Prescott. That’s the way I think about it.”

But is Rush capable of that?

“Well, I don’t know,” Jones said. “But you can’t find on the record where I said I thought Dak Prescott could do it, when he stepped in and got a chance to do that. But he did it.”

But Jones circled back and reiterated his support for Prescott, who is less than two weeks away from thumb surgery. The Cowboys chose not to put him on IR, meaning he could be back in four games.

And while that timetable hasn’t changed in Jerry’s mind, in the meantime, he’s still hoping for the very best opportunity.

“Of course we want Dak to be here next week,” Jones said. “Dak and I want Rush to lead the team to victory here. And get another win and another win. That’s how we look at it. I think it’s possible for Rush to come in here and play on a level and win games like Prescott did when he took over Romo? Yes, I do. Yes, I do. I think it’s possible.”
