Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones opens team up to potential QB controversy

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not of the belief that it’s best to talk less with the media. The always-boisterous long-time owner has never met a hot take he didn’t like.

Leading up to Dallas’ Week 3 “Monday Night Football” game against the division-rival New York Giants, Jones took this to a completely different level.

In a Q&A with the media, Jones touched on the Cowboys’ quarterback situation with star Dak Prescott currently sidelined to a hand injury. What he said was not to be expected. At. All.

Wait. What are we even doing here? Cooper Rush did come in and lead Dallas to a surprise home win over the defending AFC champion Cincinnati Bengals last week. Prescott also struggled to open the season before being injured late in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But to even bring this up right now is downright loony. Like, straitjacket in a padded room crazy.

Not a single objective mind actually takes Jones’ words seriously here. Dallas inked Dak Prescott to a four-year, $160 million extension ahead of the 2021 season. He returned from an ankle injury suffered the previous October and was among the top-five statistical quarterbacks in the NFL.

As for Rush, the former undrafted free agent from Central Michigan has thrown all of 94 regular-season passes since entering the NFL back in 2017.

For Jerry Jones, saying something that makes us legitimately question his sanity is nothing new. But the idea of creating a quarterback controversy does nothing to help his team on the field.

At some point, Jones need to learn that saying less is better in these situations whether he actually believes what he is telling us.

There’s no QB controversy in Big D. Any belief that there is akin to going full flat Earth truther and believing Elvis is chilling in Hawaii drinking Mai Tai’s with John Kennedy Jr.
