Count legendary coach Barry Switzer in the Dak Prescott camp.
Appearing on the Bo Mattingly radio show in Arkansas, the former Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys coach raved about Prescott’s play. Prescott hasn’t thrown an interception yet this season. Only New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has thrown more passes without an interception to start his career.
But the Cowboys also have Tony Romo on the team. And with Romo expected back in a couple of weeks, the Cowboys will have to make a decision.
In Switzer’s mind, it’s a no brainer. Prescott is the choice.
“As long as this guy’s playing like he is, you can’t take him off the field,” Switzer said of Prescott. “You get injured, that’s what happens; a guy gets a chance and an opportunity. This kid ain’t throwing a damn interception, he’s completing 80 (actually 69) percent of his passes.”
Switzer was the second coach to win a national championship in college and a Super Bowl. Prescott currently has the Cowboys at 4-1 and leading the NFC East. Prescott and the Cowboys take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
