Asked to describe his teammate’s performance on Saturday, Ezekiel Elliott said Dak Prescott played like a “grown-ass man.”
Obviously, at 6-2, 235 pounds, the 25-year-old Dak literally has been a man for quite some time. But Zeke isn’t wrong in what he was really saying. Jerry Jones actually said the same stuff as well.
Because it takes someone who has certainly grown up, with some broad shoulders, who can carry a football team like Dak Prescott was able to do Saturday night.
Was he the best player on the field? Nope, not by a long shot.
Does he leave plays on the field and miss open receivers that many other quarterbacks could make with their eyes closed? Yeah, that happens regularly.
But let’s keep this game of questions going. Sometimes it seems like Dak’s critics (and I’ve definitely been one of them at times) stop before asking all the right questions.
How about this one: Does he win games? Does he figure out a way to go out there and carry his team to victory?
