The Dallas Cowboys can always make changes before training camp, but they seem content with their current quarterback room.

That doesn't mean they're not always looking to upgrade. Just last week they worked out former Virginia starter Bryce Perkins, whose dual-threat and scrambling ability profiles closer to Dak Prescott than Cooper Rush.

While some fans wouldn't hate to see Perkins in Dallas, it goes without saying that nobody is supplanting Rush as Prescott's backup. If Perkins was signed to replace Will Grier as the third-stringer, that's a different story.

But Rush has done excellent work as QB2, leading the Cowboys to a 5-1 record in six starts over the last two seasons, including 4-1 last year.

That production isn't enough for one lunatic fan, who wants Dallas to pursue the damaged and defeated Carson Wentz.

Luckily, Patrik Walker of Cowboys dot com put a swift end to this madness by stating the obvious difference between Rush and Wentz.

Cowboys writer roasts fan who wants Carson Wentz to backup Dak Prescott

New entry for the worst take of all time?

For starters, Rush is a high-end backup. He might not be a household name or have the acknowledgement of a former second-round pick, but we're old enough to remember when some analysts and fans made the argument that Rush should have continued starting last year when Prescott returned from injury.

Rush didn't light up the stat sheet and the Cowboys' defense faced pressure to perform at a championship level every week he started, but he got the job done. Wentz's reckless tendencies would have been a death-knell for Dallas during Prescott's absence.

In seven starts last year, Wentz completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,755 yards and 11 touchdowns to 9 interceptions. His completion rate ranked 25 in the league, while his 6.7 yards per attempt ranked 31st, his passer rating placed 29th and his 32.9 quarterback finished 32nd of 33 qualified QBs.

Washington's offensive line was a turnstile in pass pro, but the fact Wentz couldn't make it work throwing to Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel is a huge indictment.

The keys eventually were handed to rookie Sam Howell and the Commanders made the easy decision to release Wentz this offseason. The team clearly feels better off with Howell and journeyman Jacoby Brissett and Wentz remains unsigned as he works out in Tampa with the intention of playing in 2023.

There's nothing broken about Dallas' quarterback room, therefore the front office shouldn't feel incentivized to tinker with it -- especially for a broken QB like Wentz.
