Dak Prescott unconcerned about “sophomore slump

Dak Prescott arguably had the best rookie season for a quarterback in NFL history. He won 13 games, completed 67.8 percent of his passes, threw 23 touchdowns and had a 104.9 passer rating.

What can he do for an encore? Not take a step backward.

Critics expect Prescott to go through the “sophomore slump” that Robert Griffin III, Sam Bradford and others had. Prescott, though, insists it’s not going to happen.

“For me, it’s just continuing to work,” Prescott said via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I know what I’ve done to get in this position. I know what it takes to continue to get better for me, so it’s just continuing to work. I don’t listen to what other people say about my game.”

Prescott threw only four interceptions last season and lost only four fumbles last season, stats the Cowboys point to as his most impressive in a season that saw him win offensive rookie of the year.

    Dak really has the best attitude for life, and that is probably what makes him a really good football player. He doesn’t care about outside noise, only puts his head down and goes to work preparing and getting better everyday, only paying attention to teammates, coaches and those generally within the organization.

    I’d argue that any rookie QB that won a playoff game had a more successful season than Dak had.

    If they have problems this season you have to look to O line changes

    Sam Bradford?

    He may not regress as a player, but his stats and record may since their schedule is harder this year.

    2nd year is always tougher, we’ll see.

    And he has a lot of game tape and a year of experiences on defenses. Funny how that works?

    I think he’ll be fine but he did have one of the lowest potential int conversion rates.

    It is funny bc it doesn’t work that way. He has the same amount of game tape on defenses as he did last year.
