Dak Prescott: I plan for this to be the golden year

NFC Wild Card Playoffs - San Francisco 49ers v Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott turns 29 on Friday and he knows what he wants for his birthday.

Prescott is entering his seventh season as the Cowboys starter and he has not tasted the kind of playoff success that everyone in Dallas would like to see. The Cowboys have played four playoff games and won one since Prescott took the reins of the offense, which has overshadowed the positive things that Prescott has done over the course of his career.

Changing that narrative is Prescott’s goal for this season. He told reporters on Thursday that he plans for this to be “the golden year” in his quest for a title.

“I mean obviously knowing the quarterbacks that played specifically for this team and knowing their legacy and the ones that we hold at the highest standard are the ones that have Super Bowl rings,” Prescott said, via Todd Archer of ESPN.com. “It starts there for me, trying to fill the shoes of those guys that have come before me and do something for this organization that hasn’t been done in a long time.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said this week that the team needs to be “viable” in the postseason in order for it to be considered a successful year. Prescott seems to share that opinion and the two men likely have plenty of company as the stretch without a Super Bowl win continues to grow in Dallas.

  1. LOL, Cowboys are the most average team in the history of the NFL. There days of greatness are so long gone…..Jerry Jones is the consistent issue with this team.

  2. The Cowboys talk more than any other team. Self anointed preseason champions, then back into the playoffs and get bounced in the first round. This year will be no different.

  3. Dak Prescott is better than Derek Carr, but that’s not saying much. Hey, at least Cowboy fans know they are better than at least one team in the NFL.

  4. We’ve been hearing this same broken record from the Cowboys since the 90s….Oh this is the year just you wait, and then it’s some pile of excuses like the Refs robbed us which is then followed by – Oh just you wait till next year when so and so comes back we’re gonna be unstoppable…. and here we are

    Are you talking about the team that beat the Cowboys last season on Thanksgiving Day, on a nationally televised game at AT&T Stadium?

  6. The team needs to be “viable” in the postseason in order for MM to keep his job.

  7. How about win literally 1 meaningful playoff game first.

    But you know it will be the same story with them again this year. They will win 9-10 games beating up on crappy teams in their division and a weak conference then fall flat in the Wild Card round.
