Dak Prescott

Alright I said it weeks ago let’s take a look at the Dallas Cowboys after six or seven games. I am a Tony Romo guy, but if the Cowboys were going to bring him back as the starting quarterback they should have done it after the bye. With yesterday’s instant classic game against the Pittsburgh Steelers there is no way to bring Romo in as the starter. I don’t think you can put Dak Prescott on a short leash either. All quarterbacks will have a bad day. Up until yesterday in my humble opinion Prescott was a game manager. Yesterday the Cowboys coaches let him cut loose by throwing the ball downfield more often. That was what I have been looking for. Let Prescott make plays that you know Romo can make and see what happens. What happened was another great outing by the rookie quarterback. Prescott went 22 of 32 for 319 for two touchdowns, one on an amazing screen pass to running back Ezekiel Elliott that went for an 83 yard score. Elliott had 21 carries for 114 yards and 95 receiving yards. Prescott did have a fumble early in the game that turned into Pittsburgh’s first touchdown of the game. There were seven lead changes in the game including three in the final three minutes or so of the game. The Cowboys have now won eight games in a row something that hasn’t happened since 1977 when the Cowboys made a run to the Super Bowl. Dallas beat the Denver Broncos 27-10 for their second Super Bowl win. Defensive players Randy White & Harvey Martin were co-MVP’s. This year’s Cowboys still need an MVP pass rush, although they are looking a bit better in that department. That season Tony Dorsett was the offensive Rookie of the Year. I believe this year’s season’s Rookie of the Year will also be a Dallas Cowboy. The Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots had an instant classic of their own with eight lead changes before the Seahawks won by holding off the Patriots near the goal line. In NASCAR Matt Kenseth wrecked during the first of two two lap sprints to the finish to end his chances at the championship. Joey Logano won and Kyle Busch took the final spot for next week’s racing finale at Homestead, Florida. It was also a crazy college football weekend with the number 2, 3 & 4 teams getting beat. For those wondering why Dez Bryant’s didn’t do his usual throwing up the “X” after catching a touchdown. He payed tribute to his father that died Saturday him by pointing to the sky. Condolences Dez.
