Cowboys owner Jerry Jones still backs Dak Prescott after loss to Texans
Dak Prescott took the NFL by storm a couple years back when he took over the Dallas Cowboys’ starting quarterback job from Tony Romo. It was a moment that made Cowboys fans think they had a superstar in the making. Unfortunately, over the past couple of years, Prescott has not developed quite like the Cowboys were hoping.
That is not to say that Prescott is a bad quarterback. He just hasn’t become a superstar and doesn’t appear to have that kind of potential anymore.
Dallas has gotten off to a 2-3 start this season, which is not where Jerry Jones wants his team to be. Just a couple short years ago, the Cowboys were the best team in the NFL and looked to be on track for a Super Bowl in the near future. Since then, the Cowboys have dealt with mediocrity and injuries.
Prescott and the Cowboys were unable to take care of business against the in-state rival Houston Texans on Sunday night. It was a disappointing loss with quite a few questions surrounding how the Cowboys made their decisions.
Jerry Jones made it clear that even though Prescott has been a bit disappointing, he still supports his quarterback 100 percent. Jon Machota of Dallas News took to Twitter to shared Jones’ quote.
Jerry Jones on Dak Prescott on @1053thefan: “He did some things that kept us in that game (in Houston). I’m firmly in the corner that we’ve got a quarterback we can build with for years to come. No doubt about it.”

Throughout the first five games of the 2018 season, Dak Prescott has completed 61.8 percent of his pass attempts for 961 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions. Those numbers show a little bit of the struggles that Prescott has had.
Even though he has been struggling, the Cowboys’ quarterback is keeping his head up. He is confident in his ability to play quarterback in the NFL and believes he will turn things around this season.
