Dak Prescott: We’ve got to do better and it starts with me

Monday night got off to a productive and frustrating start for the Cowboys offense.

They drove into the red zone on each of their first three drives and new wideout Amari Cooper scored a touchdown, but those seven points were all they managed thanks to a missed field goal and an interception in the end zone. They’d only manage seven points the rest of the way and quarterback Dak Prescott lost a fumble in the second half as the early promise morphed into another concerning performance for the offense.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he’s still a Prescott believer after the game, but the quarterback lamented forcing the ball on the interception and said any offensive improvement is going to have to start with his own improvement.

“We’ve got to do better and it starts with me,” Prescott said, via the team’s website. “It starts with me first all the way.”

Prescott will get a chance to show he’s found better footing in Philadelphia next Sunday night. If he can’t, the Cowboys will find themselves 3-6 and far away from where they wanted to be this season.

  1. How many times do we have to hear this same quote? Looking forward to seeing Jerry sign him to that big extension.

  2. Only way Dak can make the Cowboys better is if he retires. He can’t read defenses, only sees half the field, has no pocket presence, has no touch, gets happy feet, and doesn’t take care of the ball. He is garbage, worst starting QB in the league.

  3. I’m guessing that Kirk Cousins contract is the baseline for negotiations this offseason? Don’t settle for less than 30-35 mill a year all guaranteed.

    Cooper had separation all night, he just didn’t have anyone who could get him the ball.

    Mariota looked the best he has all year. For the first time throwing with anticipation and fitting it into tight windows.

    This could be the turning point for both these teams.

  4. Dak Prescott: We’ve got to do better and it starts with me…one more penetrating glance into the obvious, and we’ve heard this song from Dak before…

  5. Dak ..it starts with folks in suits and on the sidelines , they put you in this position….

  6. What an embarrassment last night for the Boys, they had 2 weeks to prepare for this HUGE game and they blew it big time, the offence and defense were both terrible………time to fire Linehan right away and then Garrett at the end of the season.

    Jim Harbaugh would be the best choice if he ever leaves Michigan, he would fix Dak and the terrible predictable offence.

  7. dak Prescott is horrible! jerry needs see about getting jamies Winston this offseason if the bucs don’t pick up his option. hes a clear upgrade over dak as far as on the field is concerned. dak has absolutely no comp in the qb room and theres no way he would ever get yanked because rush is definitely not the answer. add to that even if there was a lock at qb in the draft (which there isn’t this year) we have no draft capital to get one because we don’t even have a 1st rd pick, that’s Amari! who we have to pay 14 mil nxt yr regardless because that’s his option number and no way in heck he signs a long term deal for anything less than that a yr because he holds all the leverage…

    sad state of affairs…smh

  8. With any other team Prescott would be costing himself a lot of money with his poor play. Jones will be his savior with his heart versus head approach to talent evaluation.

  9. Same song every week. Same performance every week after.

    Prescott just isn’t a very good QB. I hope Jerry breaks the bank to re-sign him.

  10. calling Dak the worst starting QB is a bit much when guys like Case Keenum, Eli Manning, and Blake Bortles are starting.

    ——————–

    Not with Bill’s Peterman still somehow collecting paychecks.

    But yeah, Dak’s ceiling is looking real, real low right now.

  13. Dakota, with two and a half years to prove you are an EFFECTIVE STARTING QB, you’ve never improved at all.

    It is now time to make you a backup and for the GM Jerruh Jones to find someone else to take over who can actually become a passing threat instead of a passing gimmick.

  14. Dak’s struggling mightily
    I agree he looks awful
    I also agree he’s not the source but the product of his environment
    &
    Not only Dak
    Why’s noone talking about Zeke’s drop-off

    Wasn’t Zeke projected to win the rushing title?
    Wasn’t Zeke suppose to be more involved in the passing game
    Wasn’t the o line supposedly fixed

    Zeke has missed several blocking assignments
    Zeke has miscued quite a few times this year

    Receivers have dropped TD’s & first downs
    But
    I be doggone if everyone else gets a pass but Prescott

    We harp on firing Linehan & Garrett but it’s Dak

    Kellen Moore is the biggest change for Dak & he’s also the closest person, hands on, to Dak

    It’s just too many questions & faults surrounding this entire team

  15. He’s been saying that for 2 years, pretty clear he can’t do any better. Just maybe if Garrett were fired and Jones were to release himself from the GM position… Then just maybe he could be a serviceable quarterback
