Is Dak Prescott capable of leading the Dallas Cowboys to a Super Bowl appearance?
Jerry Jones made his opinion on the subject matter extremely clear earlier this week. The Cowboys owner remains very confident in his franchise quarterback.
“Dak has the skill to make it happen,” Jones said.
Others, including one Dallas Cowboys legend, are less sure.
Former Cowboys star wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer Drew Pearson admits that he's wavering on Prescott following the Wild Card loss to the 49ers.
“I’m just wavering now with Dak,” Pearson said on The Zach Gelb Show. “I saw regression as the season went on — that’s a disappointment at $40 million a year. It’s not about the money. It’s about that player playing the position and not improving, declining in a year where we started out so well. … We almost had the NFC East won in the first seven weeks. Then we started going downhill. A lot of it was on the offensive side of the ball, and a lot of it was predicated by the play of the quarterback.”
It's certainly fair to say that Prescott and the Cowboys were a massive disappointment in the playoffs this year.
However, Prescott and his big contract aren't going anywhere. If the Cowboys are going to make a run at the Super Bowl in the coming years, it'll be with Prescott.
