He's a Ro Mo Homer
I admit to being a Ro mo Homer and not just because he is a Mexican type, no it goes way beyond that. There is the underdog angle as he came in as an undrafted rookie, kinda like the pup in the liter that nobody wanted. Thank the football Gods that Bill Parcels saw his potential, that lead him to be called a Jedi, yes he was soon lifting a mediocre or less team to heights that had been seen since the Aikman days.
However, his playmaker ways came with a price, he took a beating for many seasons but when you are young you can hide many sins. Not so anymore, his injures have been well documented and they were seen by all in the light of day last season. And of course he and all the Cowboy fandom expected him to come back strong this season, there is no way we could have a repeat of last season. How could we lose our starting Q.B. and star receiver again.
But we did, enter rookie Quarterback Dak Prescott which has not only eclipsed possibly all rookie Q.B.records already he is 4 and 1. Couple this with no interceptions in well over 100 passes, not to mentation that defense must guard against a possible Q.B. option run. This past Sunday was to be his real test against the 7th ranked defense in the league. And if you did not watch let me assure you he passed with flying colors, they won the coin flip and never looked back, after that. Their drives were straight out of an offensive coordinator’s dream; it was exactly how you draw it up. Of course you can point to Zeke for Dak’s success also and you would be right. However, they had a good running game last season and we all remember that nightmare.
Others may say, well the defense has played better and they would be right which leads to the old age question “What came first the chicken or the egg? My answer is Dak the best defense you can have is a more than good offense. So as much as it pains me to say it “Romo must stay on the bench” you have to go with the hot hand. But that is not to say Romo may not have to come back, if Cincinnati was the first real test then the next opponent Green Bay will be the final exam.
