Dak Prescott has accomplished a lot in just three years in the league. He has thrown for more than 3,300 yards each season and thrown at least 20 touchdowns each time since taking the job from Tony Romo and basically sending him into retirement.
The Dallas Cowboys quarterback has also led the team to a pair of division titles while compiling a 32-16 record.
Stats like that is why Jon Kitna, Dallas’ new quarterbacks coach, has such high praise for Dak, which is why he compared him to Hall of Famer Warren Moon.
“I had a chance to play with Warren Moon in my second and third year and I feel like [Prescott] throws the ball very similar to Warren,” Kitna said. “It’s one of the tightest spirals you’ll ever see.”
Prescott loved that comparison.
“I didn’t know what to say,” Prescott said. “I’ll take it. He played forever. Hall of Famer. He can throw it.”
While Kitna thinks highly of Prescott, he should probably slow his roll on a comparison to a guy who amassed 49,325 yards passing, 291 touchdowns, was a nine-time Pro Bowler, and a former Walter Payton Man of the Year. Those are his numbers without adding what he did in the Canadian Football League.
As a former fourth-round pick in the 2016 draft, Prescott has definitely overachieved, but he has a long way to go to be compared to greatness.
