Jerry Jones on Dak Prescott: He’s young and getting extended

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones gave quarterback Dak Prescott his full support after Prescott turned the ball over twice in Monday night’s 28-14 loss to the Titans and he isn’t feeling any different about the third-year starter on Tuesday.

Jones said on Monday that nothing about Prescott’s performance against Tennessee changed his view about Prescott’s future with the organization. On Tuesday, Jones made it very clear what that future entails from his point of view.

“Listen, Dak is the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “He’s young and he’s going to get extended.”

Prescott is first eligible for an extension this offseason and the Cowboys would have the option of using a franchise tag if nothing gets done after the 2019 season, so there’s a pretty wide window for something to get done. Some might take that as a chance for further consideration of a player who hasn’t performed as well as he did as a rookie, but it does not sound like Jones is going down that path.

  1. A 2-3 year extension at sensible money makes sense. He hasn’t wowwed but he is a serviceable qb who could stand to have a better OC. That team is built to run and play D moving forward.

  2. Way to put pressure on him and make him work for it Jerry! So Dak just has to ride out his rookie contract, sucking all the way if need be, knowing he’ll get his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Unbelievable!

    MOVES LIKE THIS are what is wrong with today’s NFL, along with too many flags thrown, guys aren’t held accountable. If you’re terrible you ride the pine, get cut and flip burgers for the rest of your life.

    Society today man, ya killin’ me! Don’t want to buy your spoiled 11 year old that new $1,000 iPhone, the kid gets ticked and calls the cops on you and says you beat him up and they’ll believe the kid!

    You want a new iPhone, get a job, work for it. You want to be the starting QB of the Dallas Cowboys…IMPROVE YOUR PLAY!

  3. YES!!!! Thank you Jerruh! Oh this is awesome! As a fan of the Super Bowl Champions knowing that you plan to extend Dakota is amazing news before the Eagles destroy you on Sunday. Now if you really want to make the rest of the NFCE fans can you please extend Garret? Also, you are doing a great job, I think you should stay GM for the next 20 years. Even if you pass away, no one would know the difference, please stay healthy and in charge! Hahahahahah !!!

  4. Mr. Jones, Zak needs a solid QB coach like Norv Turner now with Cam Newton in Carolina. He’ll be o.k. He has the tools, but needs poise and progression work. Cooper needs time in the system.

  5. Where’s calizcowboyz? Probably somewhere searching for a stat that will make dak sound at least average. Keep drinking that kool aid, bruh.

    So, being young is more of a requirement than being good in Jerry’s world.
    ===================================================

    Yet not one of you want to say what quarterback should replace him.

  7. Any truth to the rumor that Jerry is replacing the Cowboys Cheerleaders with Rodeo Clowns next?

    Sheesh it must suck to be a fan of “America’s Team”.

  8. This fan of the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles is very thankful that Jerruh remains in control of the Dallas franchise. He got lucky with Jimmy Johnson’s team and has been floundering ever since.
    Hubris, bad character, and quasi-nepotism is a recipe for continued mediocrity.
    That is all.

    I bet Jerrah thinks he’s still young as well.
    ___________________________________________________________________________

    A couple years ago Jerry said his Doctors told him he had the brain of a 40 year old man.
    Jerry believes that too, just like he believes Dak will be a great NFL QB. Clearly Delusional

  10. Agreed with jucam1, we need to pull our resources & find Jerry the fountain of youth so his wonderful personnel decisions continue forever. Really hoping the cowboys finish in a top 10 drafting position now after giving away their first for a decent WR. I know it’s fun to say Cooper sucks but he really does have ability. The thing is, it’s going to be wasted by not having a QB that can stretch the field because that’s what makes him a difference maker. I can see him going 6/60 most weeks, decent production but not enough to move the needle.

  11. One think I’ve learned after watching all these years, if you don’t have a Brady/Brees/Rodgers/Mahomes etc, you need to keep drafting QB’s until you get one. Staying with middle of the road guy gets you nowhere.

    Your right and since Jerry has committed to Cooper they will be paying thur the nose for that 6/60 production. Jerry the OLD Fool just can’t get out of his own way.

    “from HIS point of view” … that’s the problem.

  14. Man, Jerry continues to make it more and more difficult to be a Cowboys fan. Dak’s fine for a back-up QB who hangs around the league for 10-12 years, maybe having to play 1-2 games per year. That alone means he’s not a “bust” as a 4th round pick. But, the reality is that he’s not going to be the starting QB of a team that ever makes a deep playoff run.

    Similarly, Garrett isn’t ever going to be the coach of a team the makes a deep playoff run.

    Unfortunately, it’s more important to Jerry that he get things his own way, than to ever have team success again. The good news is that my Sundays will continue to be freed up for other things, since I won’t have to spend time watching this annual disappointment.

  15. The Cowboys have turned into the Kardashian’s of the NFL ” MUCH TO DO ABOUT NOTHING “. There
    not even a sports team there a circus act. As long as Jerry keeps making money nothing will change.

  16. Jerrah is adverse to drafting a QB with a #1 , he has paid dearly for it .
    There was a reason Romo went undrafted (1 playoff win in his tenure)
    And , there is a reason Dak wasn’t taken ’til the 4th rd.
    Jerrah , you get what you pay for .

  17. Jerry said Dak is getting “extended”….what ? extended to look more embarrassing than he already has. Extended to look even worse. Extended look to prove he’s not a franchise quarterback. Amazing.

  18. I have been in die hard Cowboys fan my whole life. My parents have video of me playing football games on Nintendo Cowboys vs Redskins. It’s all I’ve ever known. This article made me question my whole life. It’s hard to be a Cowboys fan right now. If Dak gets extended and gets anywhere near top qb money this team will be ruined. Zeke’s prime will be wasted. The three all pro linemen will no longer be here due to injury, money, or both. The youth movement you have made for the overall team will also be wasted.

    This team can’t win with Dak. You’ve had almost three years of proof. His rookies season was because of a lack of tape. Go back and watch the Vikings and Giants games his rookie year. They stacked the box and played man coverage. Dak did horrible in all three of those games. This isnt something new. The Broncos did it the very next year and it was one of the worse losses we’ve had in awhile. 8 games into his 3rd season he’s being played the same way he was beat as a rookie and you still have hope? If you extend Dak fire every offensive coach because something has to change and if you keep the most obvious problem maybe changing the rest will help.

    This is after watching Quincy Carter,Testaverde, Weeden, Kitna, and Cassell play. Dak just isnt good at all. It pisses me off more with all the late game passes and stats he pads because I know its giving Jerry more confidence that he can turn it around.

  19. Jerry Jones on Dak Prescott: “He’s young and getting extended”

    and you team is mediocre and going nowhere

  20. Jerry Jones has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has no idea what he’s doing. Still, if any of us were rich enough to buy our own teams we’d all be playing GM too.

  21. I remember how people were saying that Prescott was far better than Carson Wentz and how the Cowboys didn’t have to give up the farm to get him, as the Eagles did with Wentz. I think those people are singing a different tune now.

  22. Jerry talking about young and extended. I feel a glory holes and glory days reference coming.

    You guys are just fine. Change Nothing!
    I wish Jerry will live forever!!

    –Eagle fans and the rest of the NFL

    ===================================================

    —————————————————————————————–

    As Eagles fans we don’t want him replaced. Sign him to a nice looooong extension for a robust salary package!

  24. Yes and so your streak of not being in the post season also will be extended… Nothing will change till the fans quit coming….

  25. Can you guys possibly write a story about contracts without mentioning the franchise tag. I mean, come on. I’m a big fan of the team and of Dak, but it doesn’t change that the franchise tag will have no bearing on his situation whatsoever. You couldn’t realistically view this from any angle and consider the franchise tag as a part of it.

  26. As a cowboy fan,
    The only way to make Jerry know…

    Stop buying season tickets. The regular tickets will still sell. Season ticket holders who can make a change. Start wearing bags on your head

    Jerry doesn’t care to win any more. Win or lose. He is still winning.

  27. “It pisses me off more with all the late game passes and stats he pads because I know its giving Jerry more confidence that he can turn it around.”

    In Dak’s defense, it isn’t just him that pads his stats in “garbage time”. Every losing QB in the NFL gets half or more of his high completion%, yardage and TD passes in the 4th quarter when defenses are playing “prevent” and allowing them to complete everything underneath in front of the defensive backs.

  28. Here’s the deal. A coaches salary does not count against the cap. Ergo, an owner can pay a coach anything they want without limit.

    With that in mind, you’ve got a billionaire owner, one of the most wealthy and aggressive in the league. So, why doesn’t Jerry write a blank check to get someone like Nick Saban in Dallas? Or use that money leverage to pry Belichick from NE? Whatever it takes. Whoever is the best of the best that can be had, make it happen??

    To the folks who will say they would never come because Jerry doesn’t give them enough control, that’s a fair argument. However, Jerry today has less control or influence than he has in the past. We’ve seen tangible evidence of this via not drafting Manziel, cutting D-Ware, cutting Dez, and so on. Stephen Jones is taking on more of a role, and often times gives the perception of a voice of reason. Maybe Stephen can convince Jerry to bring in ‘the guy’ to have enough control to do his magic.

  29. The ExtenZe that Jerrah is taking is confusing him about the word “extended”. Jerrah, don’t go into the locker room showers and get all envious… You need to measure football talent, not other talents…

  30. Dak is a hack at the QB position. Laughable how many people claimed he was elite after his rookie season and pure robbery he was given Rookie of the Year over his far superior fellow rookie Zeke Elliot. Jerry will hire his yes man version of Sean McVay and let Dak start in 2019 but after that experiment fails the Cowpokes will have a new QB in 2020. Bank on it.

  31. Maybe Jerry did not see the Wit and Bo show last night showing Jerry mouthing he has had enough, maybe the head coach should be replaced. Wit and Bo showed us how great of coaches they would be with the thing they call… announcing a game.

  32. The owners are a coalition and they have their own set of unwritten rules. If the richest guy/gal threw 40 million a year into an all star coaching staff, it would cause massive waves at the owners meetings, and if that happened, they might lose their death grip on the players union.

  33. If you watch the replay of Daks endzone pick last night you can actually see the precise moment Jerrah soiled his diaper.

    Extend Dak, extend Carrott Top!!!

    Long live Garretts Guys!!!

    signed, Washington, New York and Philadelphia.

  34. Zeke is carrying this offense and we all know it. That interception in the end-zone was horrible.

    LOL! Funny thing is the Redskins are just as irrelevant as the Cowboys.

    ….So, why doesn’t Jerry write a blank check to get someone like Nick Saban in Dallas?

    —————————

    Just stop it. We’ve already seen Saban when he actually has to coach.

    Endless supply of 5 star talent does not make a coach a great coach, only a great recruiter.

  37. As a Redskins fan I think Tony Romo should STILL be starting at QB for Dallas. He is STILL better than Dak. Romo used to worry me more, he was a Pro. Jerry did him dirty, Dez too… another guy who used to worry me. I’d take Romo and Dez any day of the week. Great job Mr. Jones, Bravo!

  38. Lol someone called Dak a bust… he was a 4th round pick.. that isn’t a bust that’s just “not good enough”. No hype machine was turned up for him at the draft

  39. I don’t know if Mike Shanahan still has any desire to get back into coaching, but I’d bet he’d be able to work wonders with Dak. Dak has a very gifted skill set, and we’ve seen him play at a very high level in the NFL. Shanahan was the best. Steve Young and John Elway were both really talented QB’s, but Mike turned them into champions.

  40. Just for the record

    Dak didn’t just do well in ’16
    Dak was on pace for the same type season last year,’17, but Zeke & his suspension
    Tyrone Smith’s back & Chaz Green debalacles & losing Sean Lee & not using Zeke on the goalline vs Seattle

    Come on MANN

    Dak has failed badly this year but he’s not alone
    Do has Zeke people

    NOW THATS THE FO & COACHING
    No matter how its diced up

    Open your minds up
