The rest of the league is expected to make adjustments to handle Dallas’ second-year quarterback. But the Cowboys have not stood still.
What is it about Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks lately? No matter what they do on the field, there is always a ready group of naysayers to criticize and dispute their worth. Tony Romo fought this his entire career, where so many observers never got past that fumbled field goal attempt and let that color their perceptions all the way to his apparent exit from the game. And instead of that just going away, it seems to have instead been transferred to his successor Dak Prescott. Call those who voice so much skepticism about him the “Dak doubters”. They put forth the arguments that he is due a sophomore slump. When he was an unheralded rookie forced into the starting job, the theory goes, no one had any idea what they were facing. Now they have a year’s worth of video to break down, and they are going to be ready for him.
