The Dallas Cowboys quarterback battle has been settled and it is Dak Prescott that will be staying in charge of the firing offense.

After leading the Cowboys to an 8-1 record, including last week's clutch performance to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the last minute of the game at Heinz Field, Tony Romo has come out and conceded defeat to his rookie successor.

Speaking in a press conference yesterday, Romo read out a statement regarding the starting quarterback role in Dallas and said that Prescott has earned his place.

"He's earned the right to be our quarterback," Romo said of the fourth round pick." As hard as that is for me to say he's earned that right. He's guided our team to an 8-1 record and that's hard to do."

The veteran gunslinger then went on to add that he is going to do all he can to help along his younger teammate.

"One thing that's clear: I was that kid once. Stepping in and having to prove yourself. I remember the feeling like it was yesterday," he stated. "It really is an incredible time in your life."

"But if I remember one thing from back then, it's the people who helped me along when I was young. And if I can be that to Dak, I try to be and can be that person moving forward."

Romo did go on to add that he still has a desire and passion to be out on the field, orchestrating an offense once again. However, at this moment it looks like that may well have to be with another team.
