Mike McCarthy believes Dak Prescott can lead Cowboys to Super Bowl
There has been plenty of speculation regarding the ongoing contract negotiations between the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott. Head coach Mike McCarthy has since offered up his vote of confidence in Prescott as a bonafide franchise quarterback.
Despite the significant changes to the coaching staff this offseason, it is no secret that the Cowboys’ Super Bowl expectations remain as high as ever.

“Defense gets teams to the Super Bowl, quarterbacks win Super Bowls.” Says he believes Dak Prescott can get that done
McCarthy’s comments are an encouraging sign that he is fully invested in Prescott as a cornerstone for this franchise. Although any major coaching change always comes with a few adjustments to the roster, it is clear that they will not come under center.
McCarthy’s comments carry plenty of weight after making his bones coaching Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and winning a Super Bowl in 2010. There is certainly good reason for him to be confident in Prescott considering just how much winning he has done so early in his career with two NFC East Division titles already under his belt.
The onus will now fall on McCarthy to find a way to make it translate into the postseason. While Prescott may be far from a finished product, he has shown enough promise to lead this team under the new regime.
The only question that remains is just how much the Cowboys are willing to pay in order to make it happen.
