To say that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a disappointing season in 2022 would be an understatement. The two-time Pro Bowler missed five games last term due to injury, and when he was on the field, let’s just say he left a lot to be desired. The 15 interceptions he threw last season are a clear testament to this fact.
Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott Raring to Go
Prescott and the Cowboys are now looking forward to a fresh start this season. They have put their forgettable 2022 campaign behind them, and for his part, Dak is determined to prove to the football world that he is still one of the top QBs in the game today.
Speaking to reporters after Thursday’s practice, the 30-year-old sounded off on his outlook with his team this season. Needless to say, Prescott is raring to go:
“Our plan’s in right now; just went out there and practiced it. Obviously, we’ll cross our T’s and dot our I’s and iron out the rest of it over these next couple of days, but my comfort level is at an all-time high,” Prescott said, via Tood Archer of ESPN.
There’s no better way to silence the naysayers than by coming out with a strong performance from the get-go. This is exactly what Prescott has in mind as Dallas prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Prescott has gotten to all the criticism by now. At this point, he’s learned how to drown out the noise.
“If I’ve ever given credit to people’s opinions, I wouldn’t have made it this far in my life, in this league,” Prescott said. “Everybody has an opinion. For me, it’s about focusing on what I can do with this team, the guys and the men we have, and I can’t control everyone’s narrative, what they try to make something out to be … It’s about turning the page and writing a new sentence. The pen is in our hands and we’re ready to do that.”
Dallas Cowboys HC Spills on Dak Prescott’s Mindset Ahead of New Season
Not only did Prescott bid farewell to now-ex-teammate and good buddy Ezekiel Elliott this summer, but he also had to learn a new offense with OC Kellen Moore taking his talents to the Los Angeles Rams. Be that as it may, Dak has remained steadfast. Just ask head coach Mike McCarthy:
“Definitely ready to start the season, no doubt,” McCarthy said. “I think as a human being, he is extremely focused on each day to day. I think his discipline and approach to life, let alone professional football, is top notch. So I know this, he has definitely taken advantage of every opportunity to learn, obviously evaluate, and then the implementation of the things that are new, I’m really, really impressed with his offseason work preparing for this opportunity. Yeah, definitely I would say he’s ready to go.”
This is exactly what Cowboys fans want to hear right now. It’s on.
