In September of 2015 when Tony Romo injured his collarbone, I remember feeling hopeless. Romo did not have adequate backup quarterbacks (Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel, Kellen Moore), causing the Cowboys to finish the season with a 4-12 record.
So, on October 11th at 5:37 pm, these feelings returned. Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Rayne Dakota Prescott, unfortunately suffered a R ankle dislocation and compound fracture. Per sources, he will need 4-6 months to recover, effectively ending his season.
THANKFULLY, the Cowboys front office did one thing right this pre-season. They acquired Andy Dalton, former starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, as Dak’s backup.
While I did not follow the Bengals closely over the years, I have a distinct memory of him being…decent. Okay, maybe he was more than decent. In five consecutive seasons he has led his team to the playoffs. Should I be hopeful?
Well, Dalton helped the Cowboys beat the Giants, putting them in first place of the abysmal NFC East division. So maybe they have a chance? I guess I’m trying to be optimistic.
As for Dak, I am deeply saddened. This man recently lost his brother to suicide, had his own struggles with depression, and hasn’t been paid the money he truly DESERVES!!
But for now, all we can do is pray. So I wish him a speedy recovery and hopefully next year he will get his money and win a Super Bowl.
