Questions to Be Answered in Jerryworld
Sometimes success brings more questions and some challenges. The Dallas Cowboys woke up Tuesday morning feeling successful after a come from behind Monday night win over the Giants in the Meadowlands. All should be right in the world, after all, the Cowboys are now 2-1 and seem to be putting it all together, so why are there so many questions?
Questions about quarterback Cooper Rush, who by the way looks like he could start for many NFL teams right now. Look, I get it, the backup is always the most popular player on the team, but is Cooper better equipped to run this Cowboys offense than Dak Prescott? Dak looks to return from his broken finger sooner rather than later. Jerry Jones told us a quarterback controversy would not be a bad thing, so is there one? Then you have the matter of Zeke Elliott and Tony Pollard. Pollard looked like he is making strides, he rushed for 105 yards on 13 carries Monday night. Pollard showed a burst that Elliott doesn’t seem to have any more. Zeke out touched Pollard by two carries, but finished with only 73 yards. Who is the lead back? I really think in this case, the Cowboys have found the right formula, a combination of both in a thunder and lightning kind of scenario.
Finally, did Cee Dee Lamb make his case for the number one wide receiver? Early on it looked as though the answer was no, but Cee Dee battled his way back, catching 8 balls for 87 yards. The Cowboys will always bring questions and we can answer as we see fit. But in the weeks ahead, it will be Mike McCarthy, Jerry and Stephen Jones who will have to answer the questions laid out here. Who knows what direction they will take and that makes being a Cowboys fan fun and frustrating.
