It’s only the preseason, but what the Dallas Cowboys as whole have witnessed of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, there’s a good deal of optimism for the 2016 season; especially given Tony Romo’s penchant for injuring himself.
Owner Jerry Jones is speaking pretty highly of him, and that’s a good person to have on your side:
“There’s an old adage that if you’ve seen it and you’ve seen it pretty good, well then you know it’s there, you know they can do it,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
“The question of many college quarterbacks is can they operate in the pro game, in the pro system. Can they not only function under the early, especially with our game, but can they do it efficiently? We’ve seen him do it at practice. We’ve seen him do it in meeting sessions. We’ve seen him carry that now to games. There is an energy that comes with him to the field. That same energy, surprisingly, comes with him to the classroom. That same energy comes with him in many different ways. You got to add that up. We are in a situation where we can have a developing backup quarterback because of the excellence of Tony Romo. We can have that behind him. To me, that’s what you’re ideally striving for. What we’ve seen so far in these first two preseason games does make you look positively toward his progress.”
