In the first half of the season, not only was Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott considered the clear frontrunner for Comeback Player of the Year, but he was also in talk’s for the league’s MVP title.
That quickly quieted down towards the end of the season when Prescott was accused of being in a slump and couldn’t seem to get the offense going or get his team to win games against formidable opponents.
The former Mississippi State Bulldogs quarterback signed a four-year, $160 million contract extension last offseason so he has the security in Dallas moving forward.
However, one Cowboys writer suggests signing a veteran quarterback this offseason to create a potential quarterback battle. No, seriously.
Cowboys fans hated every single bit about that suggestion:
“Back up battle would be live tho,” one fan tweeted.
“We’ve officially entered the offseason, folks,” another fan joked on Twitter.
“I see why people hate Cowboys fans because I do too,” another fan added on social media.
“Marcus Mariota vs Cooper Rush would make an interesting preseason battle for QB2,” one fan added on Twitter.
If 2021 was about Prescott’s return to health, 2022 will be about his ability to carry the Cowboys to the NFC Championship and possibly the Super Bowl.
“Dak has the skill to make that happen,” owner and general manager Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas after the season ended.
