Tony Romo wasn’t active today, so there wasn’t a choice to be made.
But according to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, it’s not a choice at all, and rookie Dak Prescott is going to remain their starter regardless Romo’s health.
Jones told reporters that it was apparent that Prescott was going to keep the job, after leading the Cowboys to an eighth straight win, this one over the Steelers.
“We’re going to let this decision in this case make itself,” Jones said, via Todd Archer of ESPN.com. “Dak’s got a hot hand and we’re going to go with it.”
“It’s not hard at all,” he added. “Tony would make the same decision. That’s what you do.”
Of course, it’s remained a question for so long because Jones has consistently talked around it, allowing Romo’s fractured back to give him an easy out. And there’s always the option to go back to Romo if Prescott ever starts looking like a rookie again, but he’s looked like anything but so far.
