Brandon Carr just laughed when asked about the Dak Prescott/ Tony Romo quarterback controversy looming for the Dallas Cowboys.

It’s the question he gets asked daily, whether he’s at his children’s school or in the Cowboys’ locker room at The Star.

“It’s crazy. I have little kids and I’m in school and they ask me the same question,” Carr said. “I’m like, ‘This is the topic of the year.’ Kids … young kids, like first grade and fourth grade, moms …”

Carr just shook his head at how hot of a topic this has become for the Cowboys.

It’s a question everyone has weighed in on, ranging from Brett Favre to Chris Christie to Roger Staubach.

For Carr, the veteran cornerback, he played it down the middle and echoed what most within the organization has said – this is a good situation to be in.

“Having a young, talent like Dak who is getting the job done, who’s getting coached up and taking it all in and going out there and applying it,” Carr said. “He has a lot of weapons alongside of him and he knows that.

“And Tony is doing a good job of helping him out right now, giving him all the information that he can possibly give him as a quarterback in this league for multiple years.

“Tony, on the flip side, we know who he is. He’s a playmaker. He’s a guy who has some special stuff in his pocket sometimes and brings it out. He’s the guy that’s been running this ship for a very, very long time. It’s his offense. He knows the ins and outs of it and knows where to put the ball.

“So it’s the best of both worlds. I don’t know. I’ll leave it at that.”
