Don't Get Carried Away By The Dak Prescott Train Just Yet

The rookie QB out of Mississippi State is turning heads around the league, but this is still Tony Romo's team and it should be for a while. It's coming. You know it; I know it. All it will take is a bad outing, an ill-timed interception or two and there will be some talk of letting backup quarterback Dak Prescott take the helm. Tony Romo has always has his detractors and that will never go away. Some of those will take Prescott's unbelievable start to his NFL career and combine it with a Romo faux pas to falsely generate support for a new day in the Dallas offense. The older heads among us...

Dak Prescott, Undertaker: Driving Another Nail In The Idea Of A Veteran Quarterback For Cowboys

The idea that Dallas needs to go out and sign a veteran to backup Tony Romo just makes less and less sense. Last week was a debut for the ages for Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. And this week was even more of the same, which seemed all but impossible given how high he set the bar. But he didn’t just clear the bar, he soared over it, leading the Cowboys to six consecutive scores in their rather impressive 41-14 preseason victory over the Miami Dolphins. Even since the end of the Great Debacle of 2015, the NFL cognoscenti have opined that the Cowboys would surely go out and...

Cowboys News: Dak Prescott Delivers In Encore Performance

Latest Cowboys headlines: Cowboys beat the Dolphins with another great effort from Dak Prescott; Alfred Morris looks great running the ball; and is Travis Frederick the teams secret pass-catching weapon? Last night’s game was that special preseason game where we finally got to see Tony Romo in action for the first time since Thanksgiving of last year. People weren’t sure if we’d get to see him for one or two series, but after an opening drive that stalled out with the help of three holding penalties, the coaches had to give him another shot. And we are glad they did. Romo’s return,...

Cowboys Beat Dolphins By 41-14 Final Score, And Dak Was Actually Perfect This Time

You think Dak Prescott couldn’t improve on his performance from last week? Well, he did. Coming into their second preseason game against the Miami Dolphins, the Dallas Cowboys faced many questions (as is to be expected). The three biggest were probably these: Would Tony Romo be able to knock the rust off? Would the defense find a way to generate some pressure and/or get takeaways? And, the most asked if not necessarily the most important, could Dak Prescott continue his hot start in the NFL? The final and rather impressive 41 to 14 victory over the Dolphins was not really as important as...

NFL Power Rankings: Cowboys Get Robbed By Ridiculous Reasoning

Ugh, is the Cowboys backup QB situation really going to be the only topic all year? Sure, the Dallas Cowboys have an issue at backup quarterback. As evidenced by last year, they were not prepared to deal with a season without Tony Romo under center. To make matters worse, this year they are, as of this moment, going to depend on a rookie drafted in the fourth round unless they make another move. No matter how well Dak Prescott played in his first preseason game, or if he plays as well the rest of the preseason, it is still risky to depend on a rookie quarterback for anything in the NFL. But...

Cowboys News & Notes: What If The Cowboys Make A Super Bowl Run?

Latest Cowboys headlines: Tony Romo can rewrite legacy with big Cowboys run; positive vibes from camp; are young backup QBs the new trend? Tony Romo can rewrite legacy with big Cowboys run - Gregg Rosenthal, NFL.comRosenthal says a narrative-busting Super Bowl run would lend a Hall of Fame sheen to the Cowboys QB's unfairly shaky rep. A long playoff run with an explosive offense would change so much. It would put an exclamation point on a worthy Hall of Fame résumé. However, if this fourth phase of Romo's career is marked by decline or injury, he risks being unfairly remembered for...

Cowboys News & Notes: Dak Prescott Still Dominates The Coverage

But don't forget about Tony Romo and that shiny new deal for Travis Frederick. Look, we all know that Dak Prescott had a pretty decent showing in his first ever NFL game, even if it was in the preseason. And after all the coverage that has already flooded the interwebs about how well he did and how the Dallas Cowboys now look pretty good in selecting him instead of all those quarterbacks taken ahead of him who did not do nearly as well, you are ready to move on and quit reading more paeans to his debut. Who am I kidding? You want MOAR! We will start things off with some additional goodness...
