After a blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers, questions surround the Dallas Cowboys. One of those questions is: should quarterback Dak Prescott be blamed for the Cowboys' woes?
Despite a 3-2 record, the Cowboys have struggled this season. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn't think Prescott is the problem and believes in his quarterback.
"Dak Prescott is a quarterback that can get us to the Super Bowl," Jones told 105.3 The Fan. "That's the way that's gonna be. We have other quarterbacks on that roster and players that certainly (are capable) if something should happen to Dak. But I want to be clear: Dak is very capable of taking this team where we want it to go."
It's excellent that Jones has faith and believes in his quarterback. However, Prescott isn't the guy who will lead the Cowboys to the Super Bowl. Dak is a good quarterback, but the Cowboys haven't been to the NFC championship game or even a Super Bowl with him at quarterback.
Prescott is struggling this season. Against the 49ers, he threw for just 153 yards and one touchdown and had three interceptions. This season, he has thrown for 1,061 yards and five touchdowns with four interceptions. He has a quarterback rating of 65.1, which is eighth in the league. Those numbers aren't going to get you to the Super Bowl.
Even if Prescott were doing well, the Cowboys still wouldn't make it to the Super Bowl because their offense isn't performing. Dallas' offense is 18th in total yards and eighth in scoring offense, averaging 26.8 points a game.
So what should happen to Prescott? He should find another team to play for. The Cowboys keep surrounding Prescott with mediocre teams. Prescott won't be able to show how good he truly is or win championships if he stays with the Cowboys.
Sorry, Jerry, but it's time for Dak to play for someone else.
