Dalton Schultz: Dak Prescott looks the same to me

NFL: OCT 11 Giants at Cowboys

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott took part in this week’s organized team activities and he said he is “pretty much full go” after recovering from the severe ankle injury that ended his 2020 season.

Prescott is feeling good and one of the players tasked with catching passes said that Prescott is looking good as well. Tight end Dalton Schultz said that he has not noticed any difference in the way Prescott is throwing the ball in his return to action.

“The ball’s coming out the same as was before the injury,” Schultz said, via the team’s website. “From what I can tell, it looks like right where he picked back up off of. All looks the same to me. The ball is in my hands the same exact way. So I’m excited to see how he continues to progress.”

There’s a long way to go before Week 1, but any good news about Prescott is good news for the Cowboys in general.

It also would seem to be good news for Schultz in particular. Schultz caught 13 passes in his first two seasons before busting out with 63 catches last season. Most came after Prescott was injured, but he had 18 catches for 219 yards and two touchdowns while being targeted 28 times in the four full games that Prescott played before his injury.

  1. Awesome to hear. Dak is such a strong dude. I had little doubt that he would excel at his rehab and be ready for the start of the offseason. This young man is going to continue to lead and continue to do great things with the football. Let’s go #4!

    He still looks the same to me, too. A .500 Journeyman QB.

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

    he’s 42-27 as a starter. I’m also not sure you understand what journeyman means. Ryan Fitzpatrick is a journeyman – ie: a person who builds his career out of playing for multiple trams. Journeymen don’t sign 160M million dollar contracts with the teams that draft them. I’ll give you a pass though since people seem to throw logic and reason out the window when discussing the cowboys.

  3. As a Dallas fan – I wouldn’t call him a journeyman, on one team, but I would call him overpaid and lucky to have Jones as the one writing the checks. His record vs. winning teams is not good and I think his stats have been padded. Don’t think he can carry a team like an elite QB, but maybe this is the year. That being said, I wish him and the team the best this year. He is a good leader and has the respect from his teammates which is great.

  4. Dak is good enough to be Dallas franchise QB, but the team is going nowhere unless they fix the defense.

    Last year, before Dak got injured, the Dallas offense was in the top 3 in all of the major categories, and they still had a losing record.

  5. Well he didn’t hurt his arm or hands… How is he at running and juking right now?

  6. “Last year, before Dak got injured, the Dallas offense was in the top 3 in all of the major categories, and they still had a losing record.”

    True, but they would have been 0-4, if they didn’t get lucky vs. ATL. Also, they played from way behind in all of the games, except the first one vs the Rams where they only scored 17 points, including a late TD, the defense gave up 20. The reason why the were top 3 in offense is that they had to throw.

  7. If you want to throw “Dak’s” 42-27 record out there, please out and see how many of the wins are a result of taking the ball out of his hands versus putting the ball in his hands.

    How many games won were when Elliott ran for 20 rush or 100 yards vs Prescott with 35 rush or 300 yards.

    I’ll do the their rookie season (13 wins)
    Elliott – 12
    Prescott – 2

    Not many QBs get to play with 3 All Pro OL, 1 All Pro RB, various All Pro/Pro Bowl Wrs, and an All Pro TE.

  8. Fix the defense and this team is a contender regardless of what some want to think or believe

  9. I hate when guys go down with really bad injuries. I hope he comes back to 100% so the Cowboys have no excuse when they get slapped around by the rest of the NFC East this season.

    Half the teams in the league could say the same thing.

  11. As a eagles fan I got mad respect for Prescott and think the man is a top ten qb, sadly his owner chooses to spend his cap dollars on offense. With that being said the D sucks.

    I expect Dak to have a pro- bow-bowl season.

    ——-

    And the Cowboys will still miss the playoffs

    problem for half the teams in the league that needs their defense fixed is they don’t have the horses Dallas does on offense with the capability to be top 5

    not sure why you’re acting like most of the top QBs in the league don’t play for loaded teams. Patrick Mahomes got a driveway full of Ferraris the minute he got his driver’s license. Josh Allen became a star as soon as he had adequate talent around him. Russell Wilson has enjoyed a strong running game and o-line for most of his career (albeit not recently.) Whenever it comes to a Cowboys player, be it Zeke, Dak, whoever, people love pointing out that they are receiving help from the talent around them. No kidding!
