2. Reaching 5,000 passing yards
This number has avoided Prescott throughout his career, even though the did throw for 4,902 yards in 2019. In 2021, he threw for 4,449 despite missing a game. I think 5,000 yards is well within the realm of possibility for the Cowboys’ quarterback.
There are two main reasons why this number should be a goal for Prescott. One is that the Cowboys are going to need to throw the ball more to win games. Offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore, should no longer concern himself with feeding Ezekiel Elliott the ball. This is a passing league and the teams that do that the best always seem to win.
The other reason is that high passing totals usually lead to the postseason. Of the top eight QBs in passing yards last year, seven of them made the playoffs. While other factors go into making the playoffs, like defensive success, the top passing teams always seem to be in the running.
Five thousand passing yards should be a goal for Prescott this season and his achievement of that should bode well for the Cowboys’ team success.
