The saga between Colin Cowherd and Dak Prescott continued Monday when Prescott appeared via phone call on Cowherd’s show “The Herd” on FOX Sports 1.
Two months ago, he said he wasn’t interested in Prescott as a franchise player because of his DUI.
Then one month later when Prescott beat the Redskins on the road, he reversed course on the former Mississippi State quarterback. Then just last week, he told his listeners that he still believes the Cowboys would be better with Tony Romo at quarterback.
Monday, he conceded that Prescott is the best the Cowboys can offer.
“I was a doubter, I’ve been proven wrong,” Cowherd told Prescott. “Congratulations.”
“The best argument for Dak is A; momentum, don’t screw with it,” Cowherd said. “B; they are running plays for Dak that they wouldn’t run for Tony so they’ve added an element to the offense that I don’t think Tony can duplicate. That’s a very legitimate argument and I don’t have any pushback on that.”
Prescott told Cowherd that he doesn’t really pay attention to those who have doubted him.
“You doubted me,” Prescott said. “A lot of people doubted me. I’ve been doubted my whole life. I just like to stay focused on what I can control and I can’t control the doubt and I’ve just been focused on winning every game.”
Though Romo has a chance to earn the job back, the tide of public sentiment seems to be leaning toward Prescott. Whether or not he keeps his spot isn’t up to him, and Prescott stayed neutral on the subject when prompted by Cowherd.
“I’m just trying to give my team a chance to win week in and week out,” he said. “That’s not my call. I guess you can say my purpose in this whole deal is to make sure I’m prepared every week and make sure the guys around me are ready to win come Sunday. That’s all I’m focused on.”
