After a video of Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs talking trash to quarterback Dak Prescott went viral this week, Prescott made it clear Thursday that he has no issue with trash talk on the practice field.
Diggs also pushed back on the notion that there was bad blood between the two.
Speculation emerged on social media about the strength of Prescott’s relationship with Diggs and other players on the team because not many are used to players trash-talking their quarterbacks so harshly.
One former player with an opinion on the interaction is former running back LeSean Mccoy.
“I played with Michael Vick, played with Tom Brady, played with Josh Allen, played with Patrick Mahomes,” McCoy said. “Nobody on the team would even fix their lips to say something like that to the quarterback.”
On Friday, Diggs took to Twitter and fired back at McCoy for what he said about the altercation.
“Sound dumb af,” Diggs said about McCoy. “Saying anything.”
Diggs had already squashed the negativity Thursday, as he called Prescott the “leader” of the Cowboys and added that he has the “utmost respect” for Dak:
The 30-year-old Prescott has been Dallas’ starting quarterback since he was taken in the fourth-round pick in 2016.
In 97 career starts, Prescott owns a 61-36 record, and he has completed 66.6 percent of his passes for 24,943 yards, 166 touchdowns, and 65 interceptions.
However, the two-time Pro Bowler does not have much success in the playoffs. He is just 2-4 in the postseason and has never taken the Cowboys beyond the NFC Divisional Round. Last year, he led the team over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quarterback Tom Brady in his final NFL game last season in the NFC Wild Card Round, but Dallas fell to the San Francisco 49ers in the next round for the second-straight season.
There are some question marks surrounding his game entering the 2023 campaign since he led the NFL with 15 interceptions last season despite missing five games due to injury.
The 2023 season is the most important one for him going forward.
