The Dallas Cowboys are winning and right now they are playing very good under Dak Prescott. The former Mississippi State quarterback is controlling the pace of the game and not turning the ball over. When the media asked former Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach about the quarterback situation his response was simple. “DON’T CHANGE”…..
“Tony is a fantastic football player,” Staubach said, via the Dallas Morning News. “We won the Super Bowl in 1971 and I separated my shoulder in the exhibition season of ’72, and Craig Morton was the quarterback and took over and when I came back healthy probably eight or nine games later – that was a 14-game schedule – Craig was winning. We were winning as a team. I understood it. The momentum was there and you don’t want to mess around with the quarterback position and Craig was playing very well. I didn’t really play very much until the playoff game against the 49ers that year and I understood it.”
Staubach said keeping Prescott on the field wouldn’t be an indication that the team lacks faith in Romo.
“Tony is going to heal. He’s going to be ready to play if they need him if something happens to Dak. I think Tony wants to win and he’ll do what it takes to win and if they keep Dak in there to keep the momentum going I think he’ll understand that,” Staubach said. “They don’t want to change that if it’s really good and I’m sure it’s really good now because they’re 4-1. You just don’t mess around with that. You try to keep it really good and keep the momentum going.”
