Dak Prescott has a message for his critics.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback wants his naysayers to keep doubting him.
“What do I say to those people? Keep question me. Obviously, if you’re questioning me, you don’t know me and you don’t know what I’m about,” Prescott said, according to the team’s official website. “So keep questioning me, sure. Have fun at it.”
It’s encouraging that Prescott is not losing confidence in the face of adversity.
The Cowboys have been unable to get their offense going the last three weeks. Prescott has struggled without his backfield mate Ezekiel Elliott. He’s thrown five interceptions the past two games after throwing just four all of last year. The Cowboys have only scored two offensive touchdowns during their three-game losing streak and have lost by an average of 23 points in that span.
Entering Week 13, Prescott has a 63.7 completion percentage to go with 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions, resulting in a 87.6 passer rating. All of his numbers are off pace or worst than his rookie campaign.
The problems aren’t just exclusively with Prescott. Dallas’ offensive line hasn’t been as stout this season. Prescott’s been sacked 14 times in the last 12 quarters. Additionally, Dez Bryant and the Cowboys wide receivers have not got the job done.
In totality, the Cowboys have a multitude of issues. Pinpointing all of the blame on Prescott is misguided.
