FRISCO - Over the years the only thing Cowboys fans have become accustomed to seeing Tony Romo throw is his back out. So excuse Cowboys Nation for getting a little bit excited about Romo actually throwing a ball in practice for the first time this season on Wednesday. But how excited should they be?

Without Romo, the Cowboys have been able to muster a 5-1 record for the top spot in the NFC and boast the 3rd ranked offense in the league. So why change a good thing?

That`s the question that will be asked until the Dak train falls off the tracks. Dak Prescott’s performance in Sunday night`s game against division rival Philadelphia will likely determine whether we see Romo play a game for the remainder of the season.

Dak sounded confident about the prime-time match-up after Wednesday’s practice, "They're a good team, they've played well all season long but as I always say I believe in my offense and we're ready for this game."

Simply put, the more games Dak wins the harder it becomes to take him off the field and replace him with a quarterback who hasn`t played all season. So even though Romo’s back to throwing in practice don`t expect the cowboys to throw him to the wolves until they absolutely have to.
