PFF Grades Dak Prescott As The 5th Best QB Against 2019 Playoff Teams

has been the number one topic for all things football this Spring. Arguments over his contract, his play, his right to hold out – they are never ending and they are nauseating.

One of the main points detractors of Prescott like to bring up is that the Cowboys performed poorly against playoff teams in 2019. Sure his numbers look good, but Prescott was a “stat padder” during blowout wins against bad teams.

Not only do the raw numbers show this isn't true, but ' dispute this point as well. PFF released their top five highest graded quarterbacks against playoff teams in 2019, with Prescott ranking fifth best in the league.

The only players above him were , , , and . Outside of Tannehill, who became an advanced stats darling last season, these are some of the most consistently recognized top quarterbacks in the league. The exact kind of company Prescott has placed himself with year after year.Stephen Jones Says Contract Talks With Dak Prescott are 'fixing to heat up'

Prescott signed his exclusive tender with the Cowboys this week, putting him on the books for $31.4 million. Prescott is still hoping for a long term contract, however, and both sides have until July 15th to work something out. Otherwise, Prescott will have to play the under the franchise tag and we'll have to re-do all of these awful debates for another offseason.

The final holdup on the deal remains the number of years in the contract. The two-time is hoping to sign a four year deal which would give him another crack at at 30 years old, whereas the organization wants to lock him down for five-plus seasons.

The Cowboys have preferred those longer deals in recent , giving them the flexibility to “kick the can” and open up immediate room when necessary. Prescott is looking to cash out twice in his career, though, and I can't blame him for that at all.
