Jerry Jones: It’s in Dak’s DNA not to turn the ball over

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw an NFL-high 15 interceptions during the regular season, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t worried that Prescott will be a turnover machine in the playoffs.

Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that Prescott has an excellent understanding of protecting the football, and the Cowboys can count on him this postseason.

It’s in Dak’s DNA not to turn the ball over,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I have all the confidence in the world that he as a player has all the right balance of confidence or all the right balance of aggressiveness as it pertains to a turn over. He understands turn over better than all of us put together.”

Those NFL-high 15 interceptions might suggest Jones is viewing Prescott through rose-colored glasses, but Cowboys fans can take comfort in knowing that last year Matthew Stafford led the NFL in interceptions during the regular season, but the Rams still won the Super Bowl.

  1. So, this year when he’s been donating the ball repeatedly is just a fluke? Did the Devil make him do it? Tell us Dr. Jerruh!

  2. “It’s in Dak’s DNA not to turn the ball over,” Jones said. Well Jerry, I think Dak mutated in 2022

  3. Um he led the league in turnovers and missed like 6 games right? Is this a joke? If he is serious somebody needs to take the team away from this man. Dak is a turnover machine. No longer a top 10-15 QB. Ahead of Dak (this year) I have in no order:

    Mahomes
    Allen
    Herbert
    Hurts
    Brady
    Rodgers
    Burrow
    Smith
    Murray
    Goff
    Fields
    Jones
    Maybe Dak here. Jones, Goff, Fields all did way more with a lot less talent. Heck I might put Rush ahead of Dak…LOL

  4. “You’ve got a keen eye for detail and a firm grasp on reality, sir…” said no one ever (except the people whose paychecks have his signature on them).

  5. One of Dak’s problems is that he’s been drinking all the Kool-Ade Jerreh’s been serving up about him.

  6. Lol says a guy with an outstanding court ordered paternity test…you can’t make this stuff up!

  7. If it’s not in his DNA, it must be his brain that is responsible for all those turnovers.

  8. Sometimes these jokes write themselves. Jerruh is a great salesman you have to hand it to him he’s always positive about his team.

  9. Remember when Dakota in one pass ended a Cowpie game with Jacksonsville? My, he throws some pretty interceptions. And the one for Washington was also a beautiful toss. If his interceptions aren’t part of DNA, he must have recently graduated from Jame-us Winston University – Football’s Interception Magnet School

  10. You all have yet to figure out that Jerry goes on the radio and drops these little gems and word salads because he knows one thing, you guys will never, I mean never ever tire of talking about the Cowboys. He throws out the cheese and y’all climb over each other to do what? TALK ABOUT THEM COWBOYS! We thank you for never tiring and keeping the Cowboys the most hated and loved team in the league all time ever!

  11. Studies show that people like Jerry who are are self-decepters are happier and more successful than those with a more realistic grip on reality. Still, it’s frustrating as hell for those of us who can see reality a little more clearly. Prescott’s turnover problem is part of a bigger issue. He consistently comes up small in big moments. Bill Parcells used to say that every player responds to pressure. Some raise their game. Others shrink. Dak shrinks.

  12. By that reasoning I can hope for all kinds of things to possibly be hidden in my DNA even if they are not very apparent.

  13. “One of Dak’s problems is that he’s been drinking all the Kool-Ade Jerreh’s been serving up about him.”

    Jerry consistently views the world through rose-colored glasses but I sometimes wonder if part of what he’s doing is trying to pump Dak up. Prescott has publicly acknowledge that he deals with depression. Ii don’t doubt that, despite what he says publicly, Dak has a voice in his head telling him he’s an imposter. Unfortunately, the voice is right.

  14. “He understands turn over better than all of us put together.”

    I agree, he is very good (great!) at it.
