Jerry Jones is all about making headlines, and he did just that on Friday.
The Dallas Cowboys owner was asked in an interview with 105.3 The Fan if he believes Tom Brady’s stellar play will finally come to an end this season. He stated by saying “I hope so.” But what he said next certainly took everybody by surprise.
“There’s a lot of me, and of course you get in a lot of trouble every time you ever make a comparison and I know that before I say this, but there’s a lot of me that sees the excellence Tom Brady is about, how much he focuses on the nuances of the game, I see those characteristics in Dak,” Jones said during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan on Friday.
“And I see the improvement. We just want to be a part of the story of Dak Prescott as he evolves.”
This isn’t the first time Jones has compared Prescott to Brady. Jones made the same observation in an interview almost three years ago. It was wrong then and is remains wrong right now.
“I think he’s more like Brady,” Jones replied when asked if Prescott was more like former Cowboys quarterbacks Troy Aikman or Tony Romo. “We know Tom Brady and he’s not Tom Brady. But he’s evolving into a guy that will beat you. I think we got us one in Dak.”
In those three years since his initial comments, Brady won his seventh Super Bowl title and Prescott led the Cowboys to one playoff berth, a loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the 2021 Divisional Round of the playoffs.
