I don't "hate" Dak Prescott, I think he is one of the best young QB's in the game, I think if you asked HIM how he played last Thursday he would say "not so good"

This isn't little league soccer where everyone gets a participation trophy just for showing up...

My team is the Pats....Brady was 21-30 for 258 yards and a pick yesterday, the Pats won big and I don't think Brady "played well" yesterday....neither did he watching his press conference after

To say a NFL QB who went 11-22 for 100 yards "Played well" just isn't true no matter how you want to spin it...

I wasn't that impressed by Dak Prescott on Thursday night, but he didn't really have to play all that great football anyway. The Redskins committed about five turnovers that night, and when Morgan Moses went down, that pretty much killed the Redskins momentum. Had the 'skins scored on that drive where they were in the red zone (the tipped pass by Crowder), and had not turned the ball over, I think you would've heard a lot more moaning and groaning from Dallas fans about Dak Prescott. His numbers were largely unimpressive. His staying in the game and playing with a hurt passing hand was impressive, but he really didn't have to do much at that point - the running game was doing it all for him.

The Cowboys have an easy game this weekend, followed up by the Raiders, Seahawks, and Eagles. I have a feeling the Eagles will be playing their starters in week 17 since they're neck and neck with the Vikings. They're going to have to get more out of Dak if they plan to run the tables.

As a Cows fan I am definitely disappointed in Dak this year. He's definitely not playing as well as he did last year. I think a big reason has been the less than optimal play of the O-line. Put pressure on Dak and he (like most other QB's takes a step back. The thing that bothers me is the lack of escapability he has shown.

I don't look for the Cowboys to win out. If they do I'll be surprised. I wouldn't be surprised if they have a let-down and lose this week against the GiAints.

I think it also has to do with Elliott suspended.

Thats part of it but don't forget that the Boys lost 3 games with Elliott playing and one of those games were in a blowout vs Broncos at the beginning of the season when Broncos looked better.

I agree Bob. Dak is obviously in a rut and coaching and play calling ain't doing him, the rest of the offense and entire team any favors. Dak's passing game last year was much better overall.

Dak was very good last year but now it's Carson Wentz. I am more impressed with Wentz this year than last year.

Wentz also has more weapons than he did last year - plus the defense is so much better.

Yup, the defense are playing the way like they did under Jim Johnson longtime DC for Philadelphia.

Last year it was Prescott that had the weapons.
