Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush may not create a controversy in Dallas, but he has made some history.

According to he NFL, Rush is the first quarterback in NFL to win each of his first four career starts with a passer rating of 90 or higher in each of the four wins.

He also has joined a very specifically obscure club. He’s the sixth undrafted quarterback in the Super Bowl era to win his first four starts, joining Kurt Warner, Kyle Allen, Dieter Brock, John Stofa, and Mike Tomczak.

Not on that list? Former Cowboys undrafted quarterback Tony Romo. He went 3-1 in his first four starts in 2006, losing to Washington while beating the Panthers, Cardinals, and Colts.

  1. Cant help but like him… Is he better than Dak? No, of course not, BUT, he has done a dang good job handling his business as a back up QB in the NFL.

  2. That’s cool, but I’ve never heard of 4 of the 5 guys listed…. Maybe a list no one wants to be on…

    You have never heard of Kurt Warner, Kyle Allen, and Mike Tomczak?!?

  4. I’m not so sure he isn’t better than Dak. Or maybe it’s better to say it this way…he’s a better fit for the Cowboys offense and thus makes the Cowboys a better team.

  5. I like Rush, I don’t know if he’ll ever be a franchise QB in the league, but he’ll certainly make a good living as a backup or journeyman. Prescott.. grossly overrated.

    Meanwhile, Sports Talking Heads trying to suggest that NFC East may be the best in football, with a straight face. Let’s play 4 more games and see where we’re at, mm’K?

  6. Is Dak better than him? Maybe so but I don’t know with what stat. Coop’s release is faster, it’s one of the fastest in the league. Dak is a very good regular season QB but this is his 7th season and he’s 2-4 in the playoffs. And he basically handed the Eagles the division in 2019, that was weak as hell. Jerry DID NOT want to give him that big contract and right now I know he’s thinking “damn”.

    Or perhaps it’s not a reflection on them.

  8. How can he be “the first” to win his first four starts in one paragraph and their be 3 or 4 other guys to do it in the next?

  9. Dakota might want to see if he can put his house on the market. If Cooper continues to win, Dakota is too expensive to hold a clipboard and too fragile to risk playing on the team again.
