Embarrassing video of Dallas Cowboys quarterback surfaces

ARLINGTON, TX - NOVEMBER 23: Dak Prescott /

For those who question the accuracy of the Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback, this video from a contest on the NFL Network will certainly add fuel to their fire.

Unless you live under a rock, you’re probably quite aware that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a down year.

The reasons (or excuses, if you like) are numerous.  Prescott did not have Ezekiel Elliott for six games.  Dak does not have a receiver who can get open.  Prescott did not have Tyron Smith for a few games.  The coaching staff did not do much to help him.

Those would be the pro-Dak explanations.

Yes, Elliott missing from the lineup takes away a major weapon that opposing defenses must focus upon.  Without such a weapon, not only does Prescott naturally feel more pressure but defenses can specifically game plan for him also.

Yes, missing an All-Pro left tackle and having the “next man up” be no better than a journeyman is not ideal.  Having a 6’3″, 270 pound man who runs a 4.6 forty-yard dash breathing down your neck all game is not exactly fun.

Yes, the coaching staff did not do anyone on this team any favors this season.  The Atlanta game was a primary example of a mental melt down by the offensive coordinator and head coach.

As for the receiver theory… well… let’s just say I vehemently disagree with this and move on.

There is another camp out there, however, that questions the accuracy of the second year starter.

A video during Super Bowl week from the NFL network did not exactly do much to quiet those nay sayers.

You can watch for yourself but here is Dak Prescott playing a game with former NFL quarterback David Carr.  The object is to hit a target before the other guy.  Let’s just say that “embarrassing” is a kind way to describe the outcome.

You can also watch this video on NFL.com here.

If you want to make excuses for Prescott, I suppose that’s your prerogative.  Missing every target but one that they give you because you sort of hit it is sad.  Losing to a guy who’s been retired for five years is embarrassing.  Getting beat 5-1… well… I’ll just stop right there.

If you’re in the camp that wants to blame Dez Bryant for everything or move on from Jason Witten, maybe you should watch this video a few times and rethink things.  While it’s just a fun little game, missing so many targets is a little worrisome.

Sometimes numbers lie.  The tape never does though.
