Dak Prescott Misses Mark by 1 Yard
Dak Prescott misses the mark by 1 yard against the Redskins and he is “ok” with it. Why? It seems after throwing for 303 yards, 4 TD’s, zero interceptions and winning the game in blowout fashion Dak was focused on one, singular item.
“But I didn’t make the playoffs and I deserve to be second.” – Dak Prescott on why missing the record by 1 yard does not matter to him.
A Staughbachian, Aikman-like response. Toss this on the pile of “reasons I like this kid.” Make sure it’s near the top.
Contrast the above with the response of brash owner Jerry Jones who had this take on Prescott’s chance at Romo’s record of 4,903 passing yards for the season.
“It really breaks my heart that Dak didn’t get that record — by what, a yard? A yard,” Jones said. “I would’ve gone out there and run a route for him at that time to get that yard. He deserves that. And I like the boy who’s got the record.” – Jerry Jones on Prescott misses the mark.
Jerry wants something to brag to the public about. It doesn’t have to be the right thing, it can be anything. Jones seemingly living through his player’s accomplishments versus his own fits perfectly with his lack of concern for his teams’ fortunes under his direction. When Jones took over Dallas had a winning record versus every team in the league. Every team. After 25 years of .500 ball, now it’s not even close.
Dak Prescott may have missed the mark, but Jerry Jones misses the point. It’s not individual accolades that matter in this sport Jerry. In the ultimate team sport, it’s the Lombardi that matters. Keep on bragging. In the meantime, the Eagles took the NFC East from you.
