Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has had a couple of poor performances. Does that mean we should replace him with Tony Romo? Former Cowboy great Charles Haley said no way.
“Man, that’s absurd.” Charles said. “What are you going to do. The guy wins eleven games for you straight, he lose(s) two games and you’re gonna replace him? It makes no sense to me.”
Charles called in to promote his new book Fear No Evil, in which he talks about his football life and battle with bipolar depression. Life was pretty rough during his playing days but Haley said, “First thing I had to do is accept that I had a mental illness.” He continued, “Life has changed a lot since I made the choice to start taking my medicine.”
Haley, a five time Super Bowl champion was one of the fiercest linebackers in the NFL and was not too pleasant to deal with on and off the field. But he’s doing so much better now and calls his life “blessed.”
I asked about the Cowboys chances at a Super Bowl and he says, as long as they go in hot in the playoffs and have home field advantage, “They’re gonna take some people apart.”
Check out the entire interview below and meet Charles Haley at his book signing Thursday from 7:00 – 9:00 at Barnes and Noble in Fort Worth and Friday from 11:00 – 1:00 at the Dallas Cowboys Proshop at the Galleria
