What would a loss against the Vikings mean for Dak Prescott

    This year has been Rocky for . After a week one loss against the , he suffered a five-week thumb that didn't help his career at all. While out, a QB controversy occurred between Quarterback and Dak.

    This controversy would frighten fans and Dak himself at the thought of him being replaced. While that didn't happen, some people think it was close. If Dak Prescott loses against the on Sunday, he will be 2-2 as a starting QB this year, while Cooper will be 4-1 as a starter.

    Enough about that though, we don't want another “Civil War” between Cowboy fans. However, something odd has been occurring. After the loss last week, many fans are referring to Dak as the main problem for the team.

    Is this next upcoming game more important for Dak Prescott than most may think? It appears that way. To me, it seems that Dak is starting to worry that he will have more fans against him soon. This is always scary for a quarterback because as the leader of the team you must also be the face of it.

    Having the Cowboy community against you is never a good sign, and if the Cowboys end up with a 6-4 record after Sunday, Dak will be in big trouble. But what would the Dallas staff do? Replace him? No, that won't happen, even if he plays badly they won't be taking out Dak. However, that doesn't mean he won't be in trouble.

    The press will go after Dak and have more evidence on why he's at fault for the Cowboys' losses. With that slander, it will put lots of pressure on the , players, and the entire Cowboy community as a whole. This can result in a total landslide for the . It may be hard for the Cowboys to recover after something like this.

    Back to Dak though. To avoid this, Prescott and the Cowboys must win this Sunday. A 7-3 record looks a lot better than a 6-4. This game may be the most important game for the Cowboys all season (besides the postseason). They must work hard these next few weeks.

    Not only would a loss put Dak Prescott in a pickle, but the Cowboys' season itself will be in major jeopardy. You won't be able to get into the with losses against PLAYOFF teams. Last season this was a problem for the Cowboys as well, they only beat the bad teams and lost to the teams that made it into the playoffs.

    This game against the Vikings is both critical to Dak Prescott's Career and the Dallas Cowboys' season. Let's hope the Cowboys are ready for a tough battle up in Minnesota.

    To all Dallas fans it’s not just Prescott it’s our play calling and head coach they not good for the Dallas Cowboys we need a real coaching staff that will not take shit from the owner and these players and make these players work for there job right now there soft our defense of backs sucks we need to go get some real defense of backs and safety they just not good .

    Please enough of the QB controversy. There never was one except for unknowledgable, casual fans. Dak is a fairly good QB. Great? No. But Rush is not a bona-fide NFL starter.


    This will be the toughest opponent for DP so far this year. BTW, he would be 2-3 with a loss to Vikings.
