Many people began hearing the name Cooper Rush in the Hall of Fame Game, but no one could’ve expected him to play this well. I do understand that it’s preseason, but Dak looked good in preseason last year and we saw how that transferred over to the regular season. Rush has certainly turned some heads in his 2 preseason games and I would have to say he deserves to be QB2 right now because he has certainly outplayed Kellen Moore so far. I would love to see Rush get some first/second team reps next game to see how he fairs with our offense and how he does against a better defense.
The Cowboys ultimately lost the game 13-10 to the Los Angeles Rams, but Rush would end up 9/11 passing with 104 yards and a touchdown. On the touchdown drive where Rush found Gathers, he was a perfect 8/8 passing. Rush was very impressive and turned many heads again. The touchdown pass to Rico gathers was delivered perfectly in stride. Rush said, “If anything, just put the ball in the air, he’s going to go get it.” Rico Gathers had himself another great night as well and he’s certainly making the case for himself to not only make this team, but to get playing time.
Everything went downhill when Rush came out of the game. The offense stalled with Luke McCown in the saddle. Many of us on twitter were calling for Rush to come in for the last 2 minutes so we could see his 2-minute drill. Overall, I have been thoroughly impressed with Cooper Rush and I’m really excited to see what he can do the rest of this preseason.
