Dak Prescott — does he deserve all this hate?

Throughout the , the have had many ups and downs. From an early season to 's finger to unexpected wins such as against the and , this season has been crazy.

One problem has stuck out this season in particular, and that's the amount of hate and judgment Dak Prescott has gotten this year.

Now, in the game of football, the quarterback is the leader of the team. When the leader fails to do his job (win games), it can cause unrest among fans, leaving them upset and wanting change within their team.

It's been a real problem this season.

Let's look at whether or not Dak Prescott deserves all of this hate from .

A lot of this started in the very first game of the season. Against the in week one, the Cowboys' didn't enter the redzone even once during the game.

After exiting the game with a thumb injury, many fans were pissed at how the game was handled offensively.

To put more fuel on the fire, backup QB was on fire!

After winning 4 out of 5 games, a quarterback controversy started in Dallas. This wasn't good for Dak's position.

Even though Cooper was performing well, the staff decided to keep Prescott as the starter. This didn't sit well with a lot of Cowboys fans.

When Prescott returned for his first game, post-thumb injury, he still wasn't liked among fans.

He is 4-1 and the Cowboys have scored a total of 169 points since his return, yet people speak about how he isn't leading the team well enough.

Personally, I have always liked Dak Prescott. He's one of my all-time favorite quarterbacks. While I have supported Cooper Rush in the past and praised him for the job he's done, I still have always liked Prescott as a quarterback.

When I say that, it helps me to understand the argument of the opposing side. People are mad at Dak Prescott because people believe he isn't playing at his full potential. This is perhaps a problem that I and many fans have had for a while.

In football, and really all over the nation, we want good leaders, and when leaders fail to get the job done, their followers become angry and upset.

While Prescott is an amazing quarterback and has proven his value throughout his career, some fans just don't like him. They feel that they and the team deserve more.

Dak Prescott doesn't really deserve the flak he's getting.

I do understand why many fans are mad at his playing style, but really I think this is common with any NFL team.

The quarterback position carries with it a lot of pressure. In football, especially for the Dallas Cowboys, whenever you aren't facing 250+ pound men running after you, your own fanbase is running after you.

Dak Prescott is doing a much better job than in the first game of the season, and some people should try to see past that. Dak is a great QB. He can be better, of course (as can any quarterback in the league), but he is a man who can get the job done.

Let it go. You continue making an issue of something that isn’t an issue. NFL QBs draw heat. Of course. But you and a few other unknowledgable fans were hyping a “QB controversy”. There never really was one. And no, Rush never was on FIRE. He protected the job for the most part and played solid but the D and special teams carried the team. On Fire ?! He was one of the lowest rated QBs. And did you ever stop to think, since it doesn’t seem to occur naturally to you that Dak has been playing to his potential yet does have some limitations. Stop this QB controversy. Let it go.
Post something real and thought provoking.


Since the reality is Dak is a top 6 QB there are not limits in any reasonable sense. .

Dak is the man but people don’t look at everything like coaching has a lot to do with it with Cooper Rush we ran the ball then Dak comes back our OC wants to throw 65 times a game put him in a good situation be balanced Our OC needs to do better and then you will see that Dak is one of the best Qb’s in football


The fans who think that Cooper Rush is better then Dak!! I would love to be the opposing GM against them for trades.


The Tampa Bay game had the offense line totally in disarray. Elliott could not run and Dak got smashed. The problem for Dak is the social media sites that use Dak hate as clik bait and we all know that nothing has the staying power as internet hate. This writer himself wrote clik baits articles calling for Rush to take over. Fake news, clik bait, and hate are what drives media.

He’s a mediocre player who once in a while performs well. As long as he is the QB, Dallas will be watching the Super Bowl. No one deserves hate but winning is the only outcome tolerated. This is why he is paid all those millions-to ignore the hate while espousing the company line. He has a particularly loathsome persona with his “promises” of performing better “next time.” He is a lot like Big Red QB from the Bengals all those years ago. Dak will be happier as a backup QB making all that money. He needs to go.
