The Dallas Cowboys Are Dak Prescott’s Team

    was balling again.

    After throwing an interception early, Prescott had settled back into the game on Sunday and was doing what he's done all season. The Cowboys looked unstoppable, once again scoring on every drive as long as they stayed out of their own way.

    Driving towards the end zone and looking to put separation between them and the Giants, Prescott dropped back, then immediately bursted forward on the draw play. It was blocked perfectly, as Prescott ran towards the near sideline as fought for the first down.

    It's never been in his DNA to go down easy. As he got the I immediately started thinking of his legendary stiff arms – like when he demolished in Washington or got up jawing with Malcolm Jenkins after driving him into the ground.

    This is what Dak does. He's a warrior, a fighter. The heart and soul of a football team who may not even deserve the level of effort and commitment he brings.

    Oh no.

    Former Cowboys quarterback, and the man Dak Prescott ultimately replaced due to in 2016, let out the words we all felt. He wishfully hoped it was just a cramp, but any reasonable person knew what had just happened. The Cowboys had lost their leader.

    This hasn't been the season any fan thought it could be. Despite an embarrassment of riches on the offensive side of the ball, the Cowboys are just 2-3, unable to stop anyone on the most weeks. There's been boneheaded mistakes, embarrassing moments, and turmoil everywhere through five games.

    Dak Prescott had been nothing short of phenomenal, however. Week in and week out. And it goes way beyond the eye popping numbers.

    The Cowboys will play 11 more games this season, led by the veteran . They sit in first place of the division with an inside track to hosting a playoff game in January. But after Prescott's injury, it all just feels empty right now.

    If there's anyone who can battle back and get better from this, it's Dak Prescott. The improbable fourth quarter comebacks he's led are an example of that, and the outpouring of support in the moments post-injury prove how respected he is.

    As he was taken off the field yesterday we saw just another reason he's worthy of a long-term contract. Why he's earned the right to be the Cowboys quarterback for however long he can play the game. The players were distraught, circling around him as he lied on the ground in literal tears. immediately threw up four fingers after scoring his touchdown, a homage to their franchise quarterback.

    Dak Prescott is the Dallas Cowboys. And I can only hope that the Jones family sees it the same way.

    agree, watched the Cowboys my whole life (59 yrs old), and never has one player been the ‘heart & soul’ of the team…until Dak.

    Howard stevens

    I’m not a fan of either Jerry or Stephen but it’s not fair to put all the blame for Dak not signing on him. They offered a ton of money which would leave room to surround Dak with good players. Dak gambled on having a great year and he was until this unfortunate injury. He’ll still get great money. He’s a great person and leader. Let’s just hope he can make it back. Dallas May be in 1st place but that’s only a result of a bad division and winning 2 games against teams that are 0-10 on last second field goals. Praying for Dak, Tyron, Collins, Hill, McCoy, LVE, Lee and the rest of this injury plagued team.

    Mr. Football

    I wholeheartedly supportive towards this matter regarding Dak! He is the Dallas Cowboys


    anyone that is talking ‘blame’ is just STUPID…we all pick our paths in life and with each path comes certain risks. All these folks talking ‘blame’ are just trying to click bait. If Dak would have balled out this year and we couldn’t sign him, there would be folks saying Jerry is to blame….Love Dak.
