Why Dak Prescott is virtually untouchable
You really think that Prescott is going to see that much of what he hasn’t seen already?
You really expecting offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, easily the best at his job in Dallas since Norv Turner, to not be expecting opponents to try to take the ‘Elliott Gravy Train’ away while trying to force Prescott into mistakes?
Take away one ugly game in New York against the Giants – and perhaps one more in last year’s season opener against the same team – and Prescott has been virtually untouchable in the regular season.
Remember that the regular-season finale defeat in Philadelphia against the Eagles was mailed in with Dallas subs. It took that setback in the standings to make the Dallas Cowboys 13-3 last year.
Prescott’s rookie passer rating of 104.9 more than proves that this budding superstar could be on the verge of a deep run in the playoffs.
That rating has nothing to do with how many yards Elliott runs for or how many times Prescott scrambles. We’re talking about passes down the field to perhaps the most underrated corps of receivers in the NFL.
So, you want to gang up on that Dallas Cowboys offensive line and gamble on whether or not Prescott can find his open weapons down field or in the flat?
Go right ahead – please.
