A large challenge is approaching Quarterback Cooper Rush. The game of the year is almost upon us, the Dallas Cowboys at the Philadelphia Eagles. Winner takes over the NFC. With lots of conversions and talk going around about Cooper Rush, what would happen if he looses?
Everyone knows by now that Rush is 5-0 and hasn’t ever lost as a starter. One major topic that’s leading the NFL right now is how Cooper could take over Quarterback Dak Prescotts job. Some fans believe Rush is doing so well that he has earned himself the #1 starting position.
It seems that if Rush fails to take down the unstoppable Eagle team, his hopes for becoming the starter will be shattered. Even if he happened to win, many fans would be upset over the fact that Dak would have to be benched.
This is a very split argument at this time. On one hand, you have a quarterback who is constantly winning and always finding a way to lead his team to a win (Cooper Rush). On the other a talented QB that has much experience in the NFL and is getting paid millions.
One excuse fans use is that Dak is getting paid too much to be benched. This is a fair point, until you realize the whole point of football. That main point is to win games. No matter what it takes, and somehow that’s Cooper Rush’s mindset.
Not saying Dak can’t win games, but at the moment he has been struggling while it appears Rush isn’t.
Back to the main objective. If Rush looses, I find it very unlikely that he will be the starter. Even after amazing wins over the Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, and Cincinnati Bengals, I can’t see the Cowboy staff giving him the job, whether he deserves it or not.
This is because the Cowboys will know that even though Rush is talented at what he does, he may still not be at the level of Dak’s experience. This will be sad for Rush who has played outstanding and has kept the Cowboys season alive. In the end, it’s going to be a tough decision for the coaching staff.
Now, let’s look at what would happen if Cooper does happen to come out of Lincoln Financial Field with a win.
If the absolutely insanely possible happens and the sensational quarterback wins, Cowboy fans will be in for a rocky ride. The reason being that Cowboy Staff may actually consider leaving Cooper in.
A decision like this would make a lot of Cowboy fans mad, and make some very pleased. Cowboy coaches will realize that they can’t bench a quarterback that keeps winning. People are already starting to compare Rush to Quarterback Kurt Warner.
No matter what happens, the Cowboys management should look deeper into their choices. Having a quarterback that is this good and benching him would be a mistake for both ends here. A huge choice is being faced by many fans and staff right now.
Who do they start, Dak Prescott or Cooper Rush?
