Jerry Jones Makes His Opinion On Possible Cowboys Quarterback Controversy Very Clear

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

The Dallas Cowboys don't have a quarterback controversy on their hands, do they? No, but Jerry Jones is sort of hoping there is one when Dak Prescott returns. 

Prescott is currently out with an injury, but is expected to return in the next few weeks. Cooper Rush, meanwhile, is running the show in his absence. He's exceeding expectations. 

Rush completed 61.3 percent of his throws for 235 yards and one touchdown in a 20-17 victory over the Bengals last Sunday. It was a strong start for the veteran backup. 

Jones hopes the Cowboys have a quarterback controversy on their hands once Prescott returns. After all, who would want to have two viable options at the quarterback position?

"Jerry Jones wouldn’t mind a QB controversy between Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush. He said he’d walk to New York if it meant Rush played so well going forward that the Cowboys had a tough decision to make," said Jon Machota. 

Jerry Jones sure does love the attention, doesn't he?

Let's make one thing clear: Dak Prescott is the Cowboys' starting quarterback. The only thing Cooper Rush can do to change that is throw for 400-plus yards and four touchdowns next Monday night. 

Rush and the Cowboys play the New York Giants on Monday night.
