Just a day after Tony Romo conceded the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback job to Dak Prescott, the rookie quarterback had his weekly conference call. During the call, a mysterious reporter weighed in on Prescott’s future opponents.
The Baltimore Ravens are slated to visit AT&T Stadium on this Sunday for a matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. It will be Prescott’s first start as the official starting quarterback, even though Romo has been out all year.
With Prescott’s first start as the “official” starting QB days away, the rookie took part in a conference call with reporters and was asked a question by an oddly-named reporter – “Hacksaw Smithers.” Of course, Hacksaw Smithers was actually Terrell Suggs, who made sure to ask Prescott what he thought of Suggs.
Hacksaw Smithers had a very important question for @dak on today's press call.
“Hey Hacksaw Smithers here. What do you think of Terrell Suggs and you know how he’s been playing this year?” – Smithers/Suggs asked.
“Who’s that?” – Prescott responded
“This is Hacksaw Smithers.” – Suggs said
“Uh okay um yeah I mean Suggs is great I mean he’s been playing well in this league for a long time and we know how special of a player he is.” – Prescott admitted
“I appreciate it thank you.” – Suggs said before leaving the conference
Shortly after Suggs left, Prescott wanted to know what the linebacker thought of him so he responded by saying “Ask him how he feels about me.”
Sadly, we may never know the answer to that question. Or at least, we might not know until the game ends on Sunday.
Kickoff between the Ravens and Cowboys is slated for 1:00 pm EST on CBS.
