Dak Prescott owns all the stats a franchise tagged quarterback would want.
However, he is missing the most important stat of them all.
The Dallas Cowboys are 1-3 after allowing 49 points in a loss to the Cleveland Browns last week. FOr PRescott, he threw for 502 yards and four touchdowns, but he admitted to the media that he would trade all accomplishments so far for wins.
“I’d give all those yards back for a different record. I care about one stat and that’s to win, so when we don’t do that no other stats matter,” Prescott told reporters after the loss.
Prescott nearly became the first Cowboys quarterback to throw for over 5,000 yards last year. However, this season he is on pace to break every single-season passing record for the franchise. He’s thrown for 1,690 yards, nine touchdowns, and just three interceptions. Prescott’s absurd passing stats have kept the Cowboys in most of their games this season, but on the opposite side.
More or less, it’s the defense that has been atrocious for the team.
The Cowboys gave up 49 points to the Cleveland Browns last weekend. Prescott tried to piece together a comeback, but it was too little too late. The Cowboys have allowed 30 or more points in three straight games. Their defense has allowed 146 points through four games and that is not a recipe for success.
Following the team’s loss last weekend, former Super Bowl winning quarterback and FOX analyst, Troy Aikman, shared a message for the team on his appearance on 96.7 The Ticket.
“To me, I’d be embarrassed as a player to put that kind of performance on film,” Aikman said when talking about the Cowboys’ defensive performance last weekend.
Dak Prescott throw so good it should be illegal
