Did Cole Beasley shade Josh Allen in praising Cowboys' Dak Prescott's leadership?

Cole Beasley isn't one to shy away from making controversial statements on social media. When COVID-19 ran rampant across the country, Beasley turned off many fans and followers with his opposition toward the vaccine.

Luckily, Beasley's latest internet snafu has nothing to do with politics.

The former Dallas Cowboys fan favorite has been active on social media praising his former teammates. Beasley was very complimentary of Dez Bryant, saying Dez was "unlike anything I've ever seen" and calling him unstoppable on the goal line when Tony Romo would throw him the fade.

This week, Beasley's praise was directed at one Dak Prescott, who's taken an unfair share of slings and arrows this offseason from the media.

In a response to newly-minted Texans receiver Noah Brown comparing rookie QB C.J. Stroud's leadership to Prescott, Beasley labeled Dak the best leader he's ever played with and that Prescott's "huddle presence is something that can't be taught."

Suffice it to say Bills Mafia is not happy with the 34-year-old.

Former Cowboys WR Cole Beasley complimentary of Dak Prescott

While Beasley's best statistical season came in 2021 catching passes from Josh Allen, Beasley believes 2016 -- Prescott's rookie year -- was actually his best season when he compiled over 800 receiving yards on less than 100 targets as the third target behind Bryant and Jason Witten.

That year, Beasley led the Cowboys in catches and receiving yards, and finished second only to Bryant with five touchdown catches.

Predictably, Bills fans perceived this as a slight against Josh Allen. In reality, though, Beasley was merely complimenting his former quarterback. Just because Prescott is "by far" the best leader Beasley has ever played with, doesn't mean Allen doesn't have a top-tier huddle presence.

No two players are molded the same, and Beasley made sure to inform the masses by coining Allen the most "physically gifted" QB he's shared a locker room with in replying to a tweet from a Bills fan who impressively didn't take Beasley's Dak praise out of context.

That's how it's done.

Of course, this isn't the first time this offseason Allen and Prescott have been pitted against each other on social media. After Allen was named the cover of " Madden 23," Dallas fans perceived it as a bias against Prescott, who's actually thrown fewer interceptions over the last two seasons than the Bills star.

At the end of the day, both Allen and Prescott are great players.

After Beasley's string of tweets, though, it seems obvious who the better leader is.
