Roger Staubach hasn't met Dak Prescott, but he believes that young Dallas Cowboys quarterback will be wonderful for the future.
The legendary quarterback appreciates the rookie's elusiveness and his split-second choices that have contributed to his interception-free start.
"You can tell that the players respect the heck out of him and that he's already a leader," Staubach said. "He is amazing at making decisions when ... there's a difficult situation there and he needs to dump the ball off. He also can throw to lead a receiver. Sometimes he throws the ball a little low, and I don't know if it's intentional, but he's right on the money in allowing his receivers to make tough catches.
"He's got something ticking up there, and you know you've got to get rid of the ball pretty quick in the NFL. He makes good, solid decisions. I think we've got a wonderful quarterback for the future."
Should Prescott remain the starter when Tony Romo remains healthy?
"It's still all about winning football games," Staubach said, "and Tony deserves to get back in there eventually. We have a great one in Tony and a future great one in Dak. If I was in the atmosphere of the Cowboy locker room, which Jason [Garrett] will be, he'll get a sense of what's the right thing for the team. They all like Tony, who's a heck of a football player, but they also love Dak right now and what he's doing. He's got the team behind him.
"If they beat Green Bay, there will be a lot of controversy to it. I'm a Romo fan, too, so I don't want to say anything against Tony. But the way Dak's going, it's all about the team and what's the best feel for the team at this particular point."
