The Dallas Cowboys have had an incredible start to the 2016 NFL season, surpassing all expectations to currently sit first in the NFC East with a 7-1 record.

That has come under the play of two rookies: running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott, who has performed exceptionally well in replacement for veteran Tony Romo, who was injured in the offseason.

Well, Romo is back fit and healthy now - according to himself, anyway - and the Cowboys have a big decision to make. However, it seems like 'America's Team' have no idea what they should really do.

Earlier this week, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones went on the radio and said that his team will “probably never have it totally sorted” when it comes to deciding who should play.

“The key thing that I want to emphasize [is] that we probably are never going to have this totally sorted out,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

“We’re going to play it by ear, play it as it comes. We can do that. And to do it really right for the advantage of the team, which we deserve, he’s really got to be ready to go at the top of his game."

So, what are the arguments for Romo and Dak? 

Well, in defense of Prescott, the former Mississippi State quarterback has played as well as he possibly could. With Dallas boasting such an incredible rushing attack, Prescott is never going to regularly throw for 300+yards a game.

But, his ability to protect the ball and turnovers, have been better than most expected. The Cowboys are winning, why would you change anything?

And then there's Romo, the veteran under center that knows the Cowboys offense like the back of his hand.

While Prescott can't really throw for over 300 yards, Romo has shown that he can and that skill could be very much needed when it comes to the Playoffs.
