QB Dak Prescott: “We’re Only Stopping Ourselves”

The Mike McCarthy era in Dallas is off to a rocky start, as the Cowboys fell to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday 38-31. The loss sent the Cowboys to 1-2 on the season, though they are still tied atop of the NFC East somehow.

Offensively the Cowboys have felt on fire at points this season, and like they can’t get out of their own way during others. The leader of it all, quarterback Dak Prescott, spoke to this very feeling after Sunday’s loss.

“Looking at it the last three weeks, we’re only stopping ourselves…We have to get out of our own way, be cleaner with the ball, play smarter football and find a way to start faster. Our coaches and these players are going to go back and figure out a way to get this thing right and clean it up” – Dak Prescott.

Prescott’s assessment is correct. The Cowboys lead the league in yards per game offensively, and are sixth in the NFL in points scored. Despite a banged up offensive line in which two undrafted tackles have been forced into starting roles, Prescott has been able to move the ball effectively the last two weeks.

Still, though, this team is an onside kick away from being 0-3 and the sky falling on McCarthy’s head in Dallas. Both losses have come to good teams on the road for sure, but that doesn’t excuse some of the juvenile brain-freezes this team has had each week.

Overall, it’s tough to put too much blame on an offense that has broken 30 points back to back weeks, but they’ll need to clean up the turnovers ahead of their week four matchup with the Cleveland Browns if they want to get back on track.

What do you think?
