Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wanted a QB controversy and he may have just gotten one.
Last week while talking to the media, Jones welcomed a QB competition because it meant that Rush would have won his games while Dak Prescott was out with injury.

NFL analyst Phil Simms went on to say he didn’t feel there was a big dropoff from Prescott to Rush.
“Cooper Rush has a good arm, he has experience, he led the team to a victory last year,” Simms said. “He can make the plays. There’s not going to be a huge drop-off to me.”

Simms isn’t looking crazy after Monday Night when Rush won his third straight game as a starter.

Cowboys fans are not genuinely debating whether Rush is better than Prescott.
To me, Cooper Rush is a better quarterback than Dak Prescott. Dak is more athletic and dynamic, but Rush is the better QB. I just feel he makes better decisions and manages a game better. #DALvsNYG

Even Skip Bayless chimed in.
All I know is this: I'm certainly not saying Cooper Rush is better than Dak Prescott … BUT HE HAS PLAYED BETTER IN HIS THREE STARTS, TWO ON THE ROAD, THAN DAK HAS AGAINST GOOD TEAMS OVER HIS LAST 12 GAMES.

Some Dak defenders popped to stop all the Rush is better than Prescott debates.

Preciate it Cooper Rush but Dak is still my QB.
No I will not be taking questions at this time.
