After a disappointing start to the 2022 season, Dallas Cowboys fans feel frustrated.
The Cowboys lost their season-opening matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also lost Dak Prescott, their starting quarterback, to a serious injury.
Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones spoke to 105.3 The Fan Friday and reminded fans they are only one game into the season. As a way of easing concerns, he mentioned Green Bay’s poor start to the 2021 season as Aaron Rodgers.
“We’re 1 game into the season. What comes to my mind is (Aaron) Rodgers a couple years ago when he said ‘Relax.’ It’s a long season. I certainly understand, and I’m not dismissing the frustration. We have to be better,” Jones said.

This is, in theory, a great mindset. The Cowboys do not have a back to back league MVP.
Cooper Rush, the backup quarterback in Dallas, will replace Prescott. Rush is expected to be out at least 4-6 more weeks. Concerns about Cowboy Nation’s quarterback, Rush, are justified considering his limited NFL experience.
The Cowboys will be looking to rebound in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
