2. The Dak Prescott experience
I am intrigued by head coach Mike McCarthy. The coach has a 125-77-2 (.618) regular-season record, but most of all, he has a Super Bowl ring. Impressively, he coached quarterback greats Joe Montana, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. All three quarterbacks will be in the Hall of Fame at some point.
He also coached up quarterbacks Rich Gannon and Alex Smith. He coached running back Ricky Williams during his stint with the New Orleans Saints. He was the Saints offensive coordinator from 2000-2004.
In his first two seasons with Williams, the running back accumulated 2,245 yards and 14 touchdowns. That should make Ezekiel Elliott fans happy. Tony Pollard is probably celebrating a second birthday with that news.
Dak Prescott is entering his fifth season as an NFL pro. Still, if we are being honest, the 26-year-old is dealing with accuracy issues. Sure, his numbers might prove that all false. But from the human eye, some of his throws are still erratic and off-key.
McCarthy must fix this. Whether it is rain conditions, injury, glove or no glove, Dak Prescott has to move the needle. Former head coach Jason Garrett and former staff member, Jon Kitna, couldn’t solve it. McCarthy, along with his impressive resume, is up to bat.
