Calls Begin For Cowboys To Bench Dak Prescott For Tony Romo
Twitter erupted with calls on Sunday night for the Dallas Cowboys to bench rookie starter Dak Prescott in favor of former starter Tony Romo.
The Cowboys suffered a defeat to the New York Giants, and Prescott looked like a rookie in his lackluster performance. Now, fans and pundits are urging the Cowboys to reverse course back to their former star quarterback. (SLIDESHOW: This Supermodel Might Be The Sexiest NFL Girlfriend)
I don’t care if this is a hot take: I’d start Romo next week

Put Romo in or this game is over. Dak is not moving the ball. He’s not getting it done. Period.

Alright that’s it, it’s Romo time. Should’ve put him in after the half.

Dak has been great for a rookie. But I don’t know if he’s playing well enough to help win the Cowboys a Super Bowl. Romo has that upside.

The Dak experiment is over. Put Romo in

Romo has not played a single snap this season after suffering an injury during the preseason, and Prescott has looked outstanding through the season up until Sunday night. (SLIDESHOW: 13 Times Lindsey Vonn Proved She’s One Of The Hottest Women Alive)
The Cowboys have not yet revealed if they have any plans at this time to make a change at quarterback.
