Cowboys Find Themselves In A Catch-22 As Some NFL Fans Are Wondering If Cooper Rush Is Better Than Dak Prescott

Cooper Rush Memes: Dallas Cowboys Beat The Bengals With Backup QB

After looking offensively anemic against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their first game of the season, the Dallas Cowboys put on a far better offensive performance in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals, the defending AFC champions.

Led by backup quarterback Cooper Rush, the Cowboys put up 20 points and capped off the ball game with a game-winning field goal.

Following the performance of Rush, some NFL fans — jokingly or otherwise — began wondering if perhaps the Cowboys are better with Cooper Rush than they are with franchise QB Dak Prescott.

While original reports indicated that Prescott could be out 6-8 weeks with a broken thumb, further opinions following surgery suggested he could miss about a month instead.

In just his second career start (Rush previously started in a win over the Minnesota Vikings last season), the 28-year-old Central Michigan University product completed 21 of 33 passes for 244 yards and one touchdown.

Given the amount of money that the Cowboys are paying Prescott, though — the 29-year-old is currently in the midst of a four-year, $160 million deal — it’s unlikely Rush suplants Prescott as the team’s starter when he’s healthy. Then again, stranger things have happened. Just ask Tony Romo, who lost his job to a rookie from Mississippi State once upon a time.
