Should Dak be reserved?

Cowboys sweep over Dak in “Rush We Trust”

As the Cowboys entered their first game of the season, they suffered an embarrassing defeat of 3-19. Dak Prescott, already questioned of his value, has been injured and won’t return for the immediate future. But a hero has come to save us, and that is Cooper Rush.

Ever since Prescott was injured, Cooper Rush has taken the role of quarterback and has been on a winning streak 3-0. He has been the saving grace to the Dallas Cowboys, and he has a bright future ahead.

With a 60% competition of passes and an average of 184 yards per game, Rush now has the spotlight and it is time to show the fans what he’s made of. 

However, with Prescott returning soon, Rush will be put on the sidelines, something that, as a Cowboys fan, I fear. I fear that Rush and the Cowboys will not reach their full potential. 

“Ever since last season’s playoffs, I have lost faith in Dak. He no longer has the winning traits of when he recruited him. He has become obsolete,” Cowboys fan Shane Spivey said.

If Prescott is ready, head coach Mike McCarthy (and Jerry Jones) will have a big decision to make. Dallas can either ride Rush’s “hot hand” or go back to their $40 million man, Prescott.

I personally think that we should bench Prescott and let Rush play for the rest of the season. He has made excellent progress and was the first QB in Dallas Cowboy history to have a 4-0 start. 

The motto “In Rush We Trust” has become iconic to the Cowboys Stadium, and it shows the promise of a better future. If anyone is to take us to the Super Bowl, it will be Rush.

As a cowboys fan, It hurts to watch our quarterbacks bail on us time and time again. We need Rush now more than ever. We need Dak to be put on the reserve. Instead of wasting $160 million on Dak’s contract, we should focus on gaining newer recruits. 

It is time for him to hang up the helmet and go home. As I always say to Cowboy haters “In Rush We Trust.”
