Mike McCarthy is at the quarterback’s side, defending Dak Prescott in the face of public criticism.
Prescott was criticized for his poor performance against the Green Bay Packers and for not being able to win the game. The Dallas head coach is confident in Prescott’s abilities moving forward, but he is still riding with his guys.
“I see him every day. I think his best days are ahead,” McCarthy stated, via Jon Machota of The Athletic. I’m excited to work with him every day and what he brings to the table.
“He’s our quarterback. I get the evaluation we have to go through, but I have zero concerns for him.”
Although Prescott’s stats are not as impressive as they used to be, the Cowboys’ quarterback has only thrown six touchdowns and four interceptions. He also had to deal with health issues in 2022. Dallas’s winning formula of an efficient offense, strong defense and great playmaking has helped them win many games.
Dak Prescott is expected to assume control of a game from now on, as he has been proven capable. Mike McCarthy is certain that it will happen again soon.
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy returned to Green Bay last Saturday, but Dallas lost 31-28 in overtime to the Packers. This was the Cowboys’ third loss of the season, and the second in their last four games.
Although McCarthy would love to win against his old team again, he was happy with the response from Dallas.
According to Jon Machota , McCarthy stated that there was A lot of disappointment. There was a lot of anger. There was much that was said between many people. That is what I love about it.
The defense of Dallas failed to stop the run. They gave up 207 yards rushing including 138 to Aaron Jones . They also allowed three passing touchdowns Aaron Rodgers to rookie receiver Christian Watson.
Offensively, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a mixed day. He finished 27-of-46 passing with 265 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. These picks were made early in the game, but they proved costly as each one led to a Green Bay touchdown on the ensuing drive.
Mike McCarthy, based on the postgame video, is positive that his team can correct all of the mistakes Dallas made against Packers. Next week, the Cowboys will face another NFC North opponent when they travel to Minnesota to face the red-hot Vikings (8-1) team.
