1. The Cowboys can focus on a Super Bowl caliber defense
The thing that really excites me is that Prescott has only tossed the ball 27 times and attempted five runs in two preseason games. Yet he has four touchdown passes to his name along with two rushing scores.
The dual-threat quarterback hasn’t shown his complete toolbox. That’s scary. That’s exciting. Even Mr. Tony Romo has to smile about that.
With the Dallas Cowboys securing the number two quarterback spot this year and beyond, the focus of the team’s vitality must be on improving the defense. The price to land Prescott was a fourth rounder in 2016, the 135th overall pick.
Don’t forget: Dallas opted to go with an offensive attack in this year’s NFL Draft by grabbing running back Ezekiel Elliott and Jaylon Smith (who won’t likely play this year) package over a defensive one in Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack, who both landed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
We’ll see how the blueprint of “keep away” works for the 2016 Cowboys. Either way, with the most important position of football looking secure in Dallas, tagged along with a young offensive line and other young playmakers, the Cowboys can really balance the team in the future by building a MVP style type of defense.
