We don’t know when it’s going to happen, but eventually, it will. The Dallas Cowboys will have to make a decision between Tony Romo and Dak Prescott.
“I’m glad I don’t have to make that decision,” Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler said on CBS Sports Radio’s The DA Show. “I just want to continue to win. Whatever situation they put us in, I just want to win and I want the team to be in the best position to win. I hope the coaches or the organization, Jerry – whoever makes that decision – they make the best decision. Everybody’s not perfect. I’m not going to go out here say that we’re going to win the rest of our season if (one guy) plays and we’re not if (the other guy) plays. I just hope that we go out there with whoever’s at the helm and play with the same confidence we’ve been playing with now and just go out there and execute so we can win these games.”
Butler, who has eight catches for 77 yards and a touchdown this season, said that he and his teammates do talk about the impending decision.
“Guys talk about it,” he said. “It’s not (guys taking sides); it’s kind of like what do you think they will do? Guys talk about it, but we don’t have power. It’s more so opinionated and what do you think they’re going to do. Guys talk about it because we know the scenario is going to present itself soon. So it’s not like we’re acting like we’re oblivious to the situation because we’re not. So guys are really just trying to – not avoid conversation within ourselves, but we’re just not trying to make something out of it to the world. We’re just trying to go out there and focus on what we got to focus on.”
Prescott has led the Cowboys (4-1) to four straight wins. He’s been The Guy ever since Romo injured his back in a preseason loss to Seattle in August.
“It was kind of like he started the game,” Butler said of Prescott. “It wasn’t even like he got put in due to injury. He’s just been playing like it’s been his job for a couple years now. That’s good for us because obviously he’s going out there playing like he expects to do what he’s doing, so that’s been great for everybody.”
The Cowboys will have their toughest test of the season this Sunday when they travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers (3-1) at Lambeau Field. Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m. ET.
