8 things we learned about the Cowboys during 2022 regular season
3. The team needs to keep Cooper Rush around
The Cowboys seem to have another solid player in the quarterback room. Backing up Prescott for the past few years, Cooper Rush did a very good job of holding down the fort for No. 4 while he nursed a broken thumb.
In Prescott’s absence, Rush led the team to a 4-1 record as a starter and for the most part kept the ball away from harms way. Aside from his three interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles, he threw none in the other four games.
Rush was by no means great, but he did a good job as being a placeholder for Prescott. He helped keep the team afloat, and nothing more. He had an unimpressive 58.4% completion percentage and only five touchdowns in five games, but he took care of the football.
This is worth bringing him back for the future, as long as he’s not looking for a major payday. Rush is one of the better backups in the league and proved he can be serviceable when called upon. Keep him around, Jerry Jones.
