Dak Prescott has proven that he is, as of this moment, the second best quarterback to come out of the 2016 draft. A lot could change between now and next year at this time when we can properly evaluate who has done well and who is most likely a bust. Normally this is great for most teams. Not so much for the Cowboys, at least when it comes to this season. With Tony Romo set to return in a few weeks, it is going to be very interesting to see what happens at JerryWorld with these two. The choice won’t have to be made this season (probably), but at some point, Jason Garrett has to make a decision. I think Romo is pretty long in the tooth already and really injury-prone. Dak is the future of course but if you keep him on the sidelines he may take his ball and go home (and by home, I mean an NFC East rival to piss off the Cowboys). Tough decision and one I wouldn’t want to have to make…I’m just kidding I would love to be the coach or GM for an NFL team, wouldn’t you?

- Good news: Only three games all weekend aren’t being shown. And they’re three games that most of us wouldn’t watch unless you are a fan of that team (even diehard fans wouldn’t watch those games for more than a few minutes).
- There are no real marquee early or late games which is a good thing this week. It means that the entire country will get multiple choices at both timeslots.
- The Jets-Cards Monday Night affair is shown on the usual TSN family of networks (without the redheaded stepchild, TSN2). With hockey starting up again, we are going to have the issue where certain games won’t start right at 8:30 on every channel. On TSN3, due to the Bruins-Jets game, the football game won’t appear until approximately 10:30. Same thing with TSN5 because of the Red Wings-Senators matchup as the game there will start around 10:00. I will be honest though: it is the Jets and the Cardinals so I don’t think you are missing a whole lot.
- Even the Sunday Night Football game seems rather weak this time around. Colts-Texans? Seriously? Man oh man I don’t know what it is this season but the amount of good games I could probably count on one hand.
Alright I got nothing else to add to this weekend’s NFL action. It will be a decent weekend, nothing more, nothing less.
Remember, there are four college games tonight and then the fun stuff happens Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy the games everyone!
