    Dallas Cowboys a Little Premature Naming Andy Dalton the Starter?

    In less than 24 hours after nearly upsetting the only undefeated team left in the NFL, the , the have already announced will once again take over the starting job at .

    If Stephen Jones is to be believed, will once again take a backseat after what can only be described as a fantastic performance in his first NFL start. I'm personally a little torn with this decision because I'm a fan of Andy Dalton's, however, I was also really impressed with the way Gilbert was able to continually put the Cowboys into scoring position on a regular basis.

    With the Dallas Cowboys entering their and it being so soon after the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, I can't help but think the Cowboys are being a little premature with their decision to shuffle their QBs once again. What's the hurry naming Andy Dalton the starter with nearly two weeks to reevaluate everything before having to make a decision?

    I can certainly understand the thinking of going back to Andy Dalton. He is no doubt the more experienced of the two and was brought in to take over if anything were to happen to , like it has. Having said that though, the way Garrett Gilbert had the Cowboys offense clicking can't be dismissed. I personally like the idea of sticking with the hot hand, which seems to be No. 3 right now.

    If it were me, I'd at least make it an open competition before coming to a final decision. I think that's only fair. Sadly though, things are rarely fair when it comes to professional sports. That means we can probably take Stephen Jones at his word, although I wouldn't be completely surprised if changes course when all is said and done.

    Do you think naming Andy Dalton as the starter is premature?

    Yes! Let the kid run the offense he had a solid game.

    No Doubt that it is premature. Gilbert played a great game against one of best teams in the league. Dalton has not yet proven himself to do that. Let Gilbert start, see how he does. He has had the best quarterback play since prescott went out. Just thinking of how fast he picked up the offense. Yes as always, the front office is slow on seeing and moving on what staring them right in the face.

    Agree with Joseph!

    I totally agree play the hot hand, never saw him play before Sunday, he was very impressive.If it aint broke don’t fix it.

    The really important information is who made the decision…Jones, not McCarthy.
    That means McCarthy is just another figurehead and not the real head coach.
    That likely is why we have seen problems with buy in to new scheme as players know these coaches are powerless.
    The Jones still decide who plays and who is on the team…McCarthy does what?

    Glenn Ostara

    The Jones’ family needs to step aside! Enough is enough. Let the coaches coach, it’s what they are paying them Millions!!! of dollars to do. Jerry has made his money, it’s time to step aside and let someone who actually knows football run the team. They have created the number one franchise in sports off the field, and done absolutely nothing on the field in the last 25 years except destroy player careers. The three super owls in the 90’s were all Jimmy Johnson. Jerry had nothing to do with it

    Maybe you guarantee no more wins and secure the third or second spot in the draft by naming Andy Dalton. You don’t want the kid to do so well he wins a game and you lose draft position.

    Agree!!! Start Gilbert..
