Cowboys QB Dak Prescott on 2017 season: ‘I’m going to call it a growing year’


Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been straight-forward all season about his performance on the field.

Since Week 10, the first game of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension and the first of two consecutive games left tackle Tyron Smith missed because of  injuries he battled the entire season, Prescott has struggled more than he’s had success. He has thrown for 1,506 yards, 6 touchdowns and 9 interceptions the last eight games, and the team missed the playoffs with a 4-4 record during that stretch.

Prescott wasn’t ready to call this season a complete failure, but he knows that he has to play better.

“There were ups and downs. I think I played some of my best ball of my career this year and obviously some of my worst ball of my career this year,” Prescott said, via the Dallas Morning News’ Jon Machota. “You can call it what you want…I’m going to call it a growing year.”

That is probably the best way for Prescott to look at this season. He did struggle, but he also played great football at times. One of his best games was in a loss to the Green Bay Packers when he threw 3 touchdown passes, and gave his team the lead late in the game.

The Cowboys made a decision last season that Prescott is their quarterback of the future. All they can do is work with him, add some talent at wide receiver, and hope that with Elliott on the field all of next season that they will improve.
