Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton
I have been all-in on the Dak Prescott train since last season. My posts all off-season have done nothing short of echoing that sentiment.
I have Prescott in the same category as Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson, just out of the top five quarterbacks in the league. I have said, time and again, that the Dallas Cowboys should have already locked him into a long-term deal.
Prescott is not only a great player, he’s a great leader. During a time of unrest in this country, he made his voice heard instead of taking the easy way out. Simply put, the Dallas Cowboys should consider themselves blessed to have Prescott as the face of their franchise for the next decade.
The team also, finally, did a very smart thing by bringing in a veteran who can actually still play. For as long as I can remember, the backup in Big D has either been a guy no one wants anywhere near the field or a way-past-his-prime veteran.
This year, Andy Dalton will be Prescott’s caddy. If Dalton were still a starter for another team, he would easily be in that 20-25 range amongst the best at his position. Now, the Dallas Cowboys not only have a top ten guy in Prescott but arguably the best backup in the league with Dalton.
So there you have it. After one round of positional review, the Dallas Cowboys are out of the blocks with five points. The Philadelphia Eagles have three while the New York Giants have one. Stay tuned next week as we review the running back and receiver positions.
