According to the numbers, Dak Prescott was set to have an incredible season before he was hurt last year. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback was on the way to setting nearly every single-season passing record in franchise history.
Prescott sustained a catastrophic season-ending injury during a win over New York Giants in October.
Prescott said today, however, that he doesn’t like to put up absurd passing numbers. If he does that, it could mean the Cowboys don’t run the ball well. This could indicate that the Cowboys are losing, or playing in a high scoring game.
To be completely honest, I don’t want 6,000 yards of throwing. Prescott said that this means that we aren’t running the ball and therefore, we’re not doing the things needed to be a winning, balanced team.”
Dak Prescott when asked about being on pace to throw for over 6,000 yards last year: “I don’t want to throw for 6,000 yards, to be honest with you. That means we’re not running the ball, that means we’re probably not doing the things we need to do to be a balanced, winning team.”

Cowboys fans love the calm response of their quarterback.
Prescott is currently recovering from a shoulder injury. However, he stated today that he would still be available to play if the season opens on Sunday.
Instead, the Cowboys can give their quarterback as much sleep as he requires.
The regular season will open against Tampa Bay on Thursday, September 9.
