Dak Prescott Continues to Prove he’s Worth Every Penny

Dak Prescott had quite the eventful offseason, and not in a good way. Not only did he not get the long-term lucrative contract he was seeking, but he had to deal with the unfortunate suicide of his older brother Jace which led to him dealing with depression and anxiety.

However, after a career year in 2019 in which he finished second in passing yards (4,902) and fourth in touchdown passes (30), Prescott is off to an even better start in 2020. According to CBS Sports HQ, Prescott leads the NFL in passing yards, yards per game, completions, attempts, completions per game, and attempts per game through the first three weeks of the season.

In the midst of this hot start, Prescott has set a few records along the way. In the Cowboys 20-point comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2, he became the first player in league history to pass for 400 yards and score three rushing touchdowns in the same game. Also, he tied former Cowboys signal-caller Tony Romo for the most 400-yard games in team history with five.

Last week, albeit in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Prescott continued to put his name in the record books. His 472 yards gave him six games over 400 for his career, establishing a new franchise record. In addition to that, he became the first quarterback in team history with consecutive 400-yard passing performances.

Although Prescott’s interception after miraculously escaping a sack ended the Cowboys comeback chances against the Seahawks, he still wants the ball in his hands when all the chips are on the table, as he explained to the media postgame.

“I’m never gonna shy away from the moment of having the ball in my hands, having a chance to win the game,” Prescott said, per Jon Machota of The Athletic. “I want to make those throws. … We’ll have some tough practices, pay attention to the details, and we’ll change this thing around. We got a long way to go.”

Not only is Prescott balling out of his mind but he’s also spreading the wealth. Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and rookie CeeDee Lamb each have at least 230 yards in the first three games and are all on pace to reach the 1,000-yard plateau. If they continue this pace, they’ll be the first trio to do so since Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, and Steve Breaston of the 2008 Arizona Cardinals.

There’s a long way to go in the 2020 NFL season but Prescott continues to prove that he’s worth every penny he’ll eventually get paid and that the doubts about his ability are pretty silly at this point.

What do you think?

  1. I don’t think Dak is a top 5 maybe top 10 QB he still looks stiff and unsure in pocket misses open receiver’s because of bad reads and doesn’t put ball in right position for receiver’s to make catches. He has not great in clutch situations. Trade him for 1st round pick and move on!

  2. Ahahahahaha. ahahahahah. Worth every penny? He’s leading the league in passing bc they get behind every game from the start. He has the most passing attempts so of course he has more yards. Too 5 passing leaders last year didn’t make the playoffs. When your team is 1-2 and should be 0-3 you can’t be balling out or your mind. Balling out of your mind is having your team 3-0 and leading from start to finish each week. This is Daks last year with the Cowboys. Oh and did you hear Jerry’s comments about him? The owner seems to still doubt if this guy can get it done.

  3. The elite QB’s are 3-0, not 1-2. What did Dak do before Amari came here? It just goes to show that you can’t pay too much of the salary cap for one player who needs a strong supporting cast to suceed. I don’t think the game has “slowed down” for Dak yet but I do hope it does slow down soon.MM can help him with his footfork and presnap reads.

  4. You guys are amazing why don’t you trade Dakota to Philly and take there Wentz the great. Trust me Philly would love that. Also you talk about supporting cast? Every QB in the league needs supporting staff. Cheifs, Greenway, Seattle are examples. You so called Dallas fans have never liked Dak but instead of saying it out loud you cover it up with garbage statements about he should be 3-0? Can Dakota control the fact that the Defense can’t stop anyone and then he needs to play catch up. He plays on the offensive side of the ball. We are paying a DE top dollar who is not playing that well at all. Please be a real fan and if you can’t deal with the fact that he took over for your so called great Romo who never won anything and was often hurt. Please be truthful when you talk about Dakota who has had to deal with most adverse thing a man could deal with, the suicide of his older brother.

  5. I still don’t understand paying these guys such astronomical salaries.
    Yes they take risk ever game, practice etc. So do Bricklayers, carpenters, electricians, LEO’S, Fire fighters, Building, plumbing, electrical inspectors, red iron crews….
    Everyone one of us on this short tradesman list do too!
    If we get hurt; it’s often the end of the line period.
    No multiple million dollar buy outs for us. I know 3 knee surgeries, shoulder reconstruction, bone
    spurs on hip from slipping down on job sites!

    Just saying!

  6. I take that back – top 12-13. Mahomes, Rodgers, Wilson, L. Jackson, Watson, Brady, Ryan, Roethlisberger, Goff, Murray, Newton, Allen, Carr, maybe Stafford and Burrow

  7. Dak can’t comeback if his defense gives up 300 rushing yds a game. If a defense can’t stop the offense then they keep scoring and fall behind more. Dak has done everything besides keeping a firm hand on the ball. Hes isn’t just good with supporting cast around him. Go back to 2018 before the cooper trade. He had beasly, hurns, williams and gallup. Besides Gallup the other wrs were horrible. Fucker

  8. “Although Prescott’s interception after miraculously escaping a sack ended the Cowboys comeback chances against the Seahawks” – not that he cost the team that game – he miraculously escaped pressure BEFORE THE INT! haha.
    Good thing he was smartly tagged. Imagine paying the big bucks for a 1-4 team again, with a significant ankle injury. Dalton will show he can win games for $2 mil. Worth every penny? Not a chance in #^#@
