“One more week” is required to determine backup quarterback for 2021 by Mike McCarthy Says, Cowboys

There are still lots of Dallas Cowboys that can find out about their final game. Battles are going on at corners and safety. The use of a swing tag was uncertain, and the cowboys need to step up in the defensive interior with Neville Gallimore’s injury.

Those problems need to be addressed appropriately, but the quarterback backup role should be the top priority on the Cowboy’s list. If the 2020 debacle has taught the cowboys anything, it must be helpful to anyone behind Dak Prescott in the profound chart since this was not the case most of the time following his injury.
Head Coach Mike McCarthy adds that the Cowboys have to decide who’s primary backup for Prescott for another week.

“We’ve got another week and we’re going to need it,” McCarthy said Houston Texans on Saturday following the Cowboy’s loss of 20-14.

It was Garrett Gilbert who took over the first-team reps while Prescott was sidelined with a shoulder issue. So far in pre-season, he’s done 19 of his 34 passes. But Gilbert did not throw a touchdown, nor did he produce a scoring drive.

On Saturday night, Gilbert completed three of his five passes and lost one fumble, which resulted in a Texans touchdown.
His best night wasn’t,” remarked McCarthy of Gilbert.

In 2020 Ben DiNucci had the seventh round to forget a night too. Of his 19 passes, he completed 14. But he threw three intercepts, and for a touchdown, one was returned. DiNucci has the most to proved from all of the backup quarterbacks so that he was tremendously successful, and in the last game of the Cowboy, if he expects to create the roster of 53 men, he will need to take part in a big show against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
