Quarterback Dak Prescott has risen the Dallas Cowboys fan base. Learn how the rookie could potentially change the organization and what his future means.
That dead fish smell is gone. The trash can tossed out. Quarterback purgatory no more!
With Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback solidifying his spot behind starter Tony Romo, the Boys can do something truly significant this year: Build a bridge for the old and new players to work together on.
It’s a remarkable time to watch the number two quarterback spot. Never in Tony Romo’s era was there one skilled or poised enough to be handed the keys.
Is Dak Prescott that quarterback? A worthy successor?
Time will tell, of course, is the simple answer. But I am not one to tap the brakes, nor do I think it would be prudent to leave it up to the analysts to tell you what to pump and not pump.
Look: The Cowboys have gone through so many quarterbacks before striking lightning like lottery with Tony Romo.
Quarterback talent is something the Dallas Cowboys are expected to provide. The decades of turmoil through poor draft and free agent decisions has clouded the quarterback position from the Troy Aikman era all the way up to the moment Tony Romo took over in 2006.
Sure, one could spell out that Mr. Prescott has only provided two games worth of highlights. Yes, those games aren’t going into the history books. But there is no denying Dak Prescott’s potential. Especially for the fourth round rookie who has all but outplayed the likes of his fellow classmates — Jared Goff, Paxton Lynch and Carson Wentz (all first round rookies).
To truly enjoy Prescott’s sensational early-bird ride, one must look at the reasons why this young quarterback is so important to the heartbeat of the Dallas Cowboys and the impact he will have on the organization’s decisions down the road.
