Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott, recently discussed some mental health issues he experienced. Is it a concern when it relates to his performance?

The Dallas Cowboys kick off the NFL’s 2020 Sunday Night Football schedule in a few days, while they will also be one of the first teams to do battle on the NFL’s latest money is no object driven brainchild, the Los Angeles Rams’ new stadium.

While that is another story for another day, preferably after a Cowboys’ victory on Monday morning, there’s something else brewing as the Cowboys’ regular-season starts to percolate.

Recently, quarterback Dak Prescott opened up about his experiences over the past few months, both with enduring the pandemic that the rest of us have experienced as well and the death of his older brother, Jace Prescott.

In an interview with journalist Graham Bensinger, Prescott talked about these things exactly, from how he found out to the immediate aftermath. The question of it all is this though, should it concern you from a performance perspective?

First off, as far as his headspace as a person, you always want the person to be healthy above all else and it seems that he is. That almost bleeds into reasoning here but to continue, that’s why you have to emphasize the “performance-wise” here.

He’s sought help to help himself deal with whatever he’s experiencing, so again and as you always want the person Dak Prescott to be ok before even thinking about the quarterback, football, or anything else, we just want to make sure we are clear in our question here.
