Jerry Jones dances back to Dak Prescott

Jerry Jones is a salesman and says whatever is needed at any given time. When Dak Prescott injured his thumb in Week 1, Jones seemed ready to replace him permanently in place of Cooper Rush after just a few games. Prescott returned for Dallas’ Week 7 game, which they beat the Detroit Lions, 24-6. Jerry came right back on board the Dak train, explaining in too much detail how happy he was to have his franchise quarterback back on the pitch.

We’ll submit that comment under the “too much information” category. Jones loves being the center of attention and if he says something controversial about his team, that’s what he’ll do. No NFL coach, owner, or player, for that matter, wants a QB argumentative in season. Jones claims he wants it after the team got off to a good start with Rush in the center forward in place of Prescott. The owner/general manager of the Hall of Fame even said he would walk all the way to New York to do it.

“That means we won,” Jones speak. “If he comes and plays as well as Prescott played… I’ll walk to New York to get it.”

After expressing that he’s excited to welcome a QB battle between Prescott and Rush, Jones witty and said there is no scenario the group will choose Cooper through Dak. Again, Jones said what he felt needed to be said at the time. This is what the 80-year-old Cowboys owner is known for: greatness. Jones possesses one of the biggest egos and egos in football, and that’s saying something.

It’s no secret that Jones has never been Prescott’s biggest fan, back when he replaced Tony Romo in 2016. Jones wants to throw Romo back there once he can, but the Cowboys played so well under Prescott that there was no turning back. The moment has passed for Romo, and Dak continues as a beginning and does not look back.

Jones even doubted Prescott after signing him for four years, $160 million agree in 2021. Jones admitted he was overpaying Prescott during his post-signing press conference while sitting directly next to him. Intense negotiations lasted two years, because Dak’s side definitely won that pee contest, leaving Jones upset for what he was forced to pay.

There’s always a time and place for everything, and no matter how Jones feels about the negotiation, he doesn’t need to put his “overpaid” QB in the blast that way. He’s never done it with any other freelance agent in a public forum like he did with his Pro Bowl QB. Jones didn’t even do this to Brandon Carr when Dallas signed him to Kansas City in 2012 on a five-year, $50 million deal. I’m sure Jones would regret every penny of that deal, but he never said so. With Prescott, it’s been a different story since he joined Romo.

The first legitimate chance Jones can replace Prescott, believe him he will take the opportunity. As the owner, it would be nice if he stayed out, but you don’t see other owners openly denigrating their QB the way Jones has done Dak since he walked through the door in Dallas. Rush isn’t good enough to replace Prescott on a level playing field, but let the Cowboys meet a player who can legally challenge Prescott, and you’ll see Jerry’s true colors shine once again.
