The Cowboys are 3-1 through the first four weeks of the NFL season and Prescott has nine touchdowns and 1,143 passing yards. He’s helped the franchise reach the postseason in 2016 and 2018, and while he has yet to receive the contract that he wants, it did earn him quite the comparison from the team’s owner.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan on Friday and was asked if Prescott reminded him more of Troy Aikman or Tony Romo.
He used neither one of them and went straight for a current QB and a future hall of famer.
“Oh, I think he’s neither. I really do,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, referring to Romo and Troy Aikman. “I think he’s more like [Tom] Brady. Now, I’m not going to. . . .We know Tom Brady, and he’s no Tom Brady. I didn’t say that. But the point is he will evolve and is evolving into a guy that will beat you. He will beat you with different circumstances and different players and different type teams. He will be on teams that have better defense than others. He will be on teams that have better protection than others. I think we got us one in Dak.”
Prescott’s numbers might be similar to Brady’s 1st three seasons, but he has yet to lead the Cowboys to a Super Bowl win or even a NFC Championship Game.
He certainly has plenty of time to accomplish those feats. Tom Brady finally retiring could certainly help matters.
