A much rhetorical debate has been had in the media about what the Dallas Cowboys should do when veteran QB Tony Romo returns 100% from his injury. Let’s explain why Tony is best left on the Dallas bench as a backup for now, and offer up a Cowboys Futures NFL pick.

 

11 Reasons Why the Cowboys Should Stick with Prescott When Romo’s Finally 100% Healthy

1—Their ages. 23 (Dak Prescott) vs. 36 (Tony Romo). The time has come for a new car, Dallas.

Best go with the younger and faster (Prescott, 4.79 40-yard Dash, Romo, 5.01) model.

2—Flow. Why would a team mess with it’s routine when playing so well? Prescott had a great preseason, and the same Romo (6-2, 230) dilemma was pondered, and the 6-2, 226-pound rookie—the 8th QB taken and 135th overall Pick in the NFL Draft—has responded with a 5-1 SU start—the same record Romo had in his first 6 starts, and Dak has this offense (#2 in NFL, 26.5 ppg) and whole Cowboys team feeling good. You don’t mess with chemistry. Ask Coca-Cola.

3—Romo (26-39 ATS at Home) would certainly get injured again in a starting role. He’s the Ben Roethlisberger of the NFC. C’mon man. Snap out of it.

4—Romo (70.3% Completions, 1,401 yards, 11 TDs, 8 INTs first 6 games) could serve Dallas better as a backup. Prescott (68.7% Completions, 1,486 yards, 10 TDs, 1 INT first 6 games) has been fabulous so far, and the Cowboys (159 points) are on a 5-game win streak after a 30-17 outright win as 5-point underdogs Sunday in Green Bay. And you can say “fabulous” when a dude third on the depth chart behind Romo and Kellen Moore heading into camp has just 1 interception—and who set a Rookie record for Passing Attempts (176) without a pick—heading into Week 8 (Dallas has a Bye.) Possession matters.

5—Having Prescott (20 rushes, 67 yards, 3 TDs) gives Dallas (5-1 ATS) a different dimension—a running QB—that keeps opposing DBs honest and OC’s guessing. Dak will demonstrate against the Eagles in a huge NFC East matchup Oct. 30 on SNF in Jerry World.

6—Prescott played college football in the SEC. The best conference in the FBS. Period.

7—Prescott (103.9 QBR) simply doesn’t play like a Rookie. The preseason thing was no fluke. “It’s like he’s not even a rookie,“ Dallas WR Cole Beasley said in Sports Illustrated. “It’s like he’s a five-year vet.”

8—The kid has seemingly made starting WRs Beasley (33 receptions, 390 yards, 3 TDs) and Terrance Williams (20 receptions, 311 yards, TD, 15.6 ypc) better.

9—He and fellow rookie (Ohio State) Ezekiel Elliott (#1 in NFL in Rushing) are now the two toughest and most dangerous dudes in the same NFL backfield. Sorry Pittsburgh.

10—The Cowboys (+2750 to win Super Bowl, Heritage—offering a 50% Cash Bonus for new signups) don’t lose anything in the Passing game with Prescott.

11—That immensely talented Offensive Line is huge and smart enough to protect the kid.
