Jerry Jones Gives Cryptic Answer On Whether Or Not Tony Romo Will Start
Jerry Jones has weighed in on whether or not Tony Romo will be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys upon his return from injury.
“Patriots didn’t bring Tom Brady back because he deserved it. They brought him back because he gave them the best chance to win,” Jones told the media, according to Dallas News reporter Jon Machota.

This would appear to indicate that Romo will be favored to start over Dak Prescott when he returns. However, perhaps the Cowboys eccentric owner is hinting at the possibility that Prescott is the Cowboys’ best option. (SLIDESHOW:
Prescott has been incredibly impressive for the 5-1 Cowboys so far this season. He has thrown for 1,486 yards with seven touchdowns and only one interception. Generally speaking it’s not wise to fix something that’s not broken when it comes to sports. The smart idea would likely be to just stick with the quarterback that is currently winning.
