The debate will rage on for as long as he’s the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s inevitable. Even after he retires, people will continually debate where Dak Prescott ranked as a quarterback during his tenure with America’s Team.
While it’s almost impossible to get two people to agree on where Prescott ranks exactly, the truth is he’s somewhere in the top 10 quarterbacks in the NFL. And that’s right where Pro Football Network’s Shane Tyler has Prescott entering his sixth year in the NFL.
Talk about remaining healthy. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott put up video game numbers before succumbing to a right ankle injury in Week 5 of last season. His 371.2 yards per game would’ve not only been the highest among all NFL quarterbacks but more than 55 yards beyond that of the next closest passer.
Sure, I didn’t expect that output to be sustained given the Cowboys’ tendency to play from behind and even into extra quarters. Yet, there’s no denying Prescott was playing like a top-10 QB in this league before season-ending surgery. – Tyler
Though he’s improved as a quarterback every year he’s been in the NFL, and he now has the challenge of coming back after missing 11 games in 2020.
Prescott appears to be healthy and ready to roll at the start of Dallas Cowboys training camp. How physically capable he is in his comeback will be an important storyline as the Dallas Cowboys hope to get back to the playoffs for the first time since 2018.
The Dallas Cowboys’ offense should be really good in 2021. It was on its way to putting up incredible numbers last season despite the loss of La’el Collins in the preseason and Tyron Smith after a couple of games. If the Cowboys can get improved performance out of their defense, it should help Dak Prescott and the offense lead the Cowboys to a lot of wins and a playoff berth in 2021.
