Dak is the QB1 of the Cowboys for approximately 12-14 more years IMO.
Dak bigger arm, high processing ability which is why he has a great TD to INT ratio, more mobile/run threat. Opens the field more, I trust him if we're down more.
Cooper Rush is an extremely cerebral QB with great reads, mechanics...but people need to understand. When a QB has a weak arm, it negates a lot of their intelligence because they tend to throw with more anticipation, or throw harder which leads to overthrows. So Ironically, he ends up making throws that to the average person seem stupid, but if you know why they do it you'll understand.
The real issue of our bad performances in the playoffs is the under performance of our offensive line and our defensive play early in games. That's it.
It's coaching. You know the sad part? The Cowboys could have overcame all of that and won if not for 14 penalties.
If your going to blame the quarterback instead of the entire franchise which makes a team, the 10 quarterbacks combined before Romo never won any playoffs. A quarterback doesn't have to be elite to win playoffs/Superbowls. It's a team's effort & success not just an individual player!You would have him play until he is 43 years old, even though he isn't elite and hasn't had playoff success?
Neither were the other 15 after Aikman. Your point?!I don't believe either is the future of the Dallas Cowboys.

Well most teams have a goal of winning a title and curate their personnel accordingly. Now if your feel that the Cowboys have some other goal they are trying to achieve then one of these guys might be a choice. But if the objective is to win a title then neither of them is the answer. As far as which of these two guys starts I doubt it matters.What does that have to do with this thread?
Cooper has more credible wins in 4 games than Dak has in 4 years.I predict Dak will be Dak. If the momentum is going in the Cowboys favor, he will have some good stats. The Cowboys will win some easy games.
But Dak will still be Dak. If the momentum is against the Cowboys, Dak will struggle. There will be three-and-outs, errant passes, and opposing teams getting big leads. This is my prediction.
But, according to his fans:
Dak's return is set for a home game against the Lions, who have seen their hopes for a big season dashed by poor defense. So Dak should, by all accounts of his fans, have a great day, racking up big points and stats.
Then it's the Bears, who are also struggling. Dak should again, by all accounts from his fans, put up big numbers.
Then the bye week.
In the second half of the season, Dak's leadership should, by all accounts from his fans, lead the Cowboys to repeated big wins, regardless of who the Cowboys play. The Cowboys should roll through the playoffs, and their Super Bowl opponent should forfeit to avoid the embarrassment Dak will put them through.
Because after all, if Cooper Rush can beat 4 out of five of the toughest teams in the league, Dak should easily win out.
If Cooper Rush isn't good enough to be the starter, that's fine. I can live with that. But he's only had six games to learn, and he's won five of them.
Dak has had six years, and hasn't proved he should be it.
I think Rush is more accurate, and with this group of receivers, I think it gives him a big advantage.
