Jerry Jones had this to say when it comes to trading for a QB
Is Andy Dalton not enough?
Dalton helped muscle the Cowboys to a 37-34 win over the Giants. Despite not scoring any touchdowns, he helped set up two critical field goals as he finished with 111 yards passing and a QBR of 108.7.
However, despite Dalton’s veteran success, there are some who doubt his ability to lead this team into contention.
In 2019, Dalton completed just 59.5% of his passes in a year where he finished with 16 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was 2-11 as a starter in his final year.
According to Dallas Morning News reporter Michael Gehlken, owner Jerry Jones shot down the idea of trading for a quarterback.
“Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, whose 78th birthday is today, said on @1053thefan it is “unlikely” the team trades for a quarterback following Dak Prescott’s injury. Little interest in him. “We’ve got our quarterback in Andy Dalton.” Dalton gives the team the ability to run the offense as is.”
The Cowboys have three stud receivers in Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Gallup, which was something he did not have anywhere close to having in Cincy. AJ Green missed significant time, so the team’s best receiver was Tyler Boyd.
Given how bad the NFC East is, the Cowboys are leading the division with a 2-3 record, Dalton could still lead this team to a division title.
Plus, Dalton is not an ordinary backup. He has leadership qualities that have led him to Pro Bowl appearances.
According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Michael Gallup said that Dalton had a message for the team the first time he took the huddle. He told the team, “Focus up, this is what I came here for.”
Apparently, every time Dalton entered the huddle, he told the team “I came here to win. I came here to play. Let’s do it.”
Hopefully, their win streak can continue.
