on Dak or Romo: 'It really doesn't matter the name that's on the back of that jersey'
Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware (currently with the Denver Broncos) recently joined The Rich Eisen Show to talk all things football. Here are some highlights from their interview:
Rich Eisen: You're not the only team with a young quarterback in his first chance of being a starting QB in this league to be successful so far and have six wins under your belt. There's your former team in Dallas with Dak Prescott and there's so much talk about whether Prescott should stay starting right there. Have you been in contact with Tony Romo at all, DeMarcus?
DeMarcus Ware: I haven't been in contact with any of the guys. They're playing really well [with the] controversy with Prescott and Romo. I always take it as this right here: it really doesn't matter the name that's on the back of that jersey. It's about how to keep the train going. They're doing really well with who they have in there. And it's not a one-person team. It's a team sport. It's 11 guys out there playing. You got every body out there gelling and playing like they should, you should leave it that way.
Rich Eisen: But you also know what the quarterback is like in that metroplex. You had a front row seat about people talking about Romo and things of that nature. What do you think's going through his mind right now?
DeMarcus Ware: I think right now he's preparing like he needs to prepare and saying, 'When I get my opportunity I'm going to make sure I take full advantage of it.' I know a guy like Romo. He's given Prescott all the information that he needs to win games. Romo wants to win games. He wants to win a championship. Right now this is an opportunity for him. He might not be out there physically, but mentally he can shed some light with Prescott and his teammates because that's what great teammates do. And if he gets the opportunity to go out there and play he'll be ready.
