If you think the looming decision between quarterback Dak Prescott and Tony Romo is an issue that could divide the Dallas Cowboys locker room, think again. At least there’s one player who claims that won’t be the case.
Clarence Hill for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram caught up with Cole Beasley on Tuesday, and while the Cowboys wide receiver had a positive update on Romo’s progress from a back injury, he also insisted the team isn’t “worried or concerned” about who will be under center. Instead, with a 5-1 record heading into the bye week, everybody is simply enjoying winning and focused on continuing to do so.
Of course, it’s easy for Beasley to say that. Even if it’s true of himself, he doesn’t speak for everybody, and there’s no way that all 50 of the other personalities inside the Cowboys locker room don’t have an opinion about who the starting quarterback should be once Romo returns.
And while it might not be something players are talking about right now, you better believe if the change is made from Prescott to Romo, those who don’t think it’s a good idea to mess with the chemistry will begin to murmur. No matter which way players are leaning, if either signal caller shows any sign of struggling, there will be guys who get worried or concerned if the team made the right decision.
On the bright side, Beasley has been playing catch with Romo and told Hill the 14th-year veteran is throwing the ball “as well as ever.” If that’s the case, maybe the Cowboys players really shouldn’t worry either way.
