Dak Or Tony?

Dak Prescott OR Tony Romo    The Inscriber Magazine

With the election a couple of weeks away fellow Dallas Cowboy fans and NFL fans in general, heres your chance to VOTE and voice your opinion in another poll. Who do you think should be the Cowboys starter at Quarterback when Romo is healthy and able to return, Dak or Tony?

 WOYSM has set up a poll and we are asking everyone to vote AND comment on who you think should be the starter for the Cowboys. Even though this Sports Mind would NEVER try to influence your vote there’s one thing thats for certain I am definitely going to tell you

Whats On My Sports Mind about this subject:

Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott

If it’s one thing I’ve learned about team sports and especially football over the years, you DON’T mess with chemistry because when you have that it can be special. Right now the Cowboys have that. They also have a youth movement going on in big D as well. Their offensive line is the best in the NFL not to mention extremely young. They have a rookie RB and QB, and are riding a 5-game winning streak and one step out of bounds from a possible 6-0 start. 

You have to look at this like a delicate piece of valuable china that can become easily shattered causing irreversible effects if just one act of clumsiness occurs and in My Sports Mind that one HUGE act of clumsiness would be inserting Romo back in as starter at this time. You HAVE to ride this out with Prescott because the chance of something very special is pretty great.

Even though many are aware that Dak threw his first interception of the season last Sunday against Green Bay most do not know that it goes MUCH further than that.

Prescott was redshirted as a true freshman with Mississippi State in 2011. As a backup to Tyler Russell in 2012, he played in 12 games. He completed 18 of 29 passes for 194 yards with four touchdowns and NO interceptions. He also scored four rushing touchdowns with 110 yards on 32 carries.

Prescott began as the backup to Russell again in the 2013 season, but took over as the starter when Russell suffered a concussion. He played in 11 games, completing 156 of 267 passes for 1,940 yards with 10 touchdowns and SEVEN interceptions. He also ran for 829 yards on 134 carries with 13 touchdowns. He was the MVP of the 2013 Liberty Bowl after leading the Bulldogs to a 44–7 win over the Rice Owls BUT Most importantly the seven Int’s. would be the last he would throw at Miss. St. His streak of 288 consecutive pass attempts without throwing an interception is the longest in school history and the third longest in SEC history. So the fact that Dak has managed to throw only 1-Int. thus far in his first NFL season is CERTAINLY no fluke.

In his first season as a full-time starter in 2014 Prescott led the Bulldogs to a 10-2 regular season record, its first number 1 ranking in program history, and led them to the Orange Bowl. During the 2014 season Prescott broke 10 school-records including: single season passing yards (3,449), total yards of total offense (4,435), passing touchdowns (27), and total touchdowns (41). Additionally his 14 rushing touchdowns is tied for fourth in school history.

Now its time for Dak to make NFL History and as far as this Sports Mind is concerned NO ONE should be allowed to stand in his way, not even Romo.
