Skip Bayless: Cooper Rush is almost as good as Dak
One of the best aspects of seeing the Dallas Cowboys fall apart right before our eyes is the slow, painful deterioration of Skip Bayless’ mental state.
When Dallas is good, Skip is on top of the world. His energy on FS1’s Undisputed is unmatched and the show is better for it. But when his precious Cowboys are not very good, well, we get a glimpse into the braindead takes-man that Skip Bayless truly is.
On Monday’s edition of Undisputed, Bayless and his co-host, Shannon Sharpe, got into a debate about the Cowboys’ viability in the NFC East without Dak Prescott, who is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after injuring his throwing hand in the team’s Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay.
Instead of waving the proverbial white flag, Skip decided to put all of his eggs in the Cooper Rush basket.

“I can make a case that Cooper Rush is almost as good as Dak,” Skip unironically uttered. “And sometimes I think he can be a little more consistent than Dak.”
C’mon, Skip. You’re better than this.
Right after that ridiculous comment, Sharpe him Skip with, “You need to put that in a briefcase and walk out of here.” I second that.
Bayless went on to say that Rush “lit it up” when he was subbed in for an injured Dak Sunday night. Rush went 7-for-13 on the night (53.8 completion percentage) for 64 yards while averaging 4.9 yards per attempt. His longest pass was 17 yards.
That doesn’t exactly scream “lit it up” to me but to each their own.

As we all know by this point, the Dallas fanbase is grasping for any kind of optimism they can get their grubby little hands on, so I can’t even fault Skip that much for this take. Cowboys fans are going to be Cowboys fans at the end of the day. They can’t help it.
They were so fed up with their team’s performance Sunday night that they decided to take a page out of our book and throw trash at their injured quarterback as he left the field.
Us Eagles fans take pride in being the biggest scumbags in the NFL. So please, Dallas, leave this kind of behavior to us.
This is, without question, the worst fanbase in the NFL and Skip Bayless is the personification of it.
If we could throw every trait that Cowboys fans possess into a 3D printer, a replica of Skip Bayless would come out on the other end.
It’s tough being a Cowboys fan right now, I get it. If it were any other franchise, I’d probably have a little sympathy for them. But it’s Dallas, so I couldn’t care less.
