NFL Rumors Roundup: Kaepernick Keeps Starting Job, Prescott Over Romo & More


Offensive Rookie of the Year Watch Week 6

“The media spinned it to where everything was always great with his play, but there was always something wrong with the receiving end of the play if there was an issue”. We’ve just got to do a better job of hitting the ones we’re used to hitting.

It turned out to be a blessing in disguise that they didn’t pick any of these QBs considering what Dak has become, so I believe that Romo’s days should be numbered in Dallas just for this reason. Both times, the Packers settled for field goals instead of touchdowns.

The defense is playing very well considering the suspensions to two top stars and a lack of a pass rush.

“Frankly, the biggest thing on offense.is turning the ball over”, Green Bay Coach Mike McCarthy said. “It’s going to take a while to sort through that”.

The fallout from not having James Starks available because of a knee injury that flared up early last week and resulted in surgery during the weekend left featured back Eddie Lacy to carry the load. He’s missed all six games this year, and Prescott is expected to start against Philadelphia on October 30, which would make it 21 of the past 23 games Romo has missed. “Everyone’s got to do their part to help him out and we’ll be fine”.

During the game, starting corner Damarious Randall re-injured his groin and had to leave the game.

There is no quarterback controversy in Green Bay, though there are plenty of questions about the state of the passing game. By getting to Rodgers for the lone Cowboys sack of the game, Irving stopped the threat and made any attempt at a comeback much harder.

Prescott was 18 of 27 and shook off 2 fumbles and an interception to lead the Cowboys (5-1) to their fifth consecutive victory.

Prescott passed Brady in the first quarter of Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field with a 15-yard completion to Terrance Williams.

The Packers planned for a long night of studying film before turning their attention right away on Monday to the Chicago Bears, their opponent on Thursday night. “So it is what it is”. The Packers had five fumbles, losing three.

As for the boos, Rodgers said, “Look, we’re upset, they’re upset”. “That’s just what it is”.

“We’re not going to back down”.

“We missed a couple of tackles; we’ve got to tackle better on all levels”, linebacker Julius Peppers said. “I have great confidence we’ll perform at the level we have the last 10½ years”. But that unit did nothing to slow down the Cowboys run game. Rookie Jason Spriggs replaced Bulaga. With Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams (barring he is sidelined still after clearing concussion protocol), there is no doubt that the Packers have the potential for some sizable offensive performances. If those games were any indication of what this team is capable of, then I think we can all agree that the Cowboys are not only one of the best teams in the entire National Football League, but should be well on their way to making a push for the playoffs.
