    The premise of CowboyDAK's post is not Prescott 'goes down for the season' - but if he has to miss a game or two (or three) - the backup QB is capable enough to help keep the team winning games in his absence.
    Exhibit A: The Cowboys 1991 Season.

    I understand but then that supports the notion we aren’t interested in trying to win without Dak.

    And that would be under the assumption that every season is a SB or Bust scenario.

    Most of all having a serviceable backup is more about winning a few games until your starter returns not leading you to a SB.

    Gardner Minshew for a 6th was the move that should have been made

    Correct.

    Most teams season are over if their Franchise QB goes down for entire season but the difference is having a serviceable backup to come in and have the ability to win a few games to keep the season going so when the starter returns the season is still on.
