Former NFL star Ryan Clark had harsh words for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Dallas hasn’t had any success since the glory days of the 1990s and Clark thinks Jones talks like he wants a championship, but that’s really not the case.
Clark was talking Rise on ESPN regarding Jones’ statement that he wanted a quarterback controversy between Cooper Rush and Dak Prescott.
“It’s like the dude woke up and said, ‘What’s the weirdest thing I could say to F up my team this morning?’ And then he just chooses something. [Jerry Jones] don’t like peace. …Jerry Jones walks around like he wants a championship, but he doesn’t. He just wants to be talked about like he wants a championship.
Jones’ comments regarding the Cowboys’ quarterback position a few days ago came as a surprise to many, as Dak Prescott is clearly the starting quarterback, or so we thought. But he hinted that he would like Rush to play well enough for the team to make a decision when Prescott returns.
Jones said via Michael Gehlken:
“Wouldn’t it be something if you had a dilemma about which direction to take?” You do this if he gets 10 kills. The same thing happened with Prescott. I think like that.”
JeJones likes to make headlines and he certainly did with his quarterback commentary. But everyone in the NFL and the media knows it’s Dak Prescott’s team when he’s in good shape.
How far can Rush take the Cowboys without Prescott?
Since we don’t know exactly how long Prescott is out, Rush will likely get this week’s game against the Giants and maybe one more. It was originally feared Prescott would miss nearly eight weeks with a hand injury, but latest reports suggest he could return for Dallas’ game against the Packers on Nov. 14.
Cooper Rush stepped in and played well in the 20-17 win over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Many believe he can do the same on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
Many thought the Cowboys’ season was almost over when Prescott left the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and found he needed surgery. But his finger injury prognosis, coupled with Rush’s good play, brought the season to life for Dallas fans.
If Rush plays well in Prescott’s absence, will he take over as a full-time starter? I think we all know the answer to that. No.
