Sleep easier, Tony Romo. Dak Prescott isn’t scheming in the shadows.
On Monday, the former Mississippi State quarterback made it clear that Romo should be the man behind center when the veteran signal-caller is ready to return after sustaining a broken bone in his back. Speaking to The Dallas Morning News’ Brandon George, Prescott wanted to defuse any potential controversy.
“This is Romo’s team. I’ve said that from the moment that I was named the starter and he went down,” Prescott said. “I’m just trying to do my best to win games and put this team in a successful position to do that week in and week out and when he comes back I’ll leave that up to the big guys.”
Prescott has been all the rage after storming onto the scene in the preseason. He has thrown for 519 yards with one rushing touchdown in the Cowboys’ 1-1 start.
Of course, Romo has accomplished more in the NFL. But if Prescott stays hot until Romo is healthy enough to play, then there will be an interesting call for Dallas’ decision-makers to consider down the line.
