5. Extend Dak Prescott

Speaking of Dak, an extension is going to be key to contending.

I'm tired of questions about whether Dak can win a Super Bowl. Every quarterback "couldn't win one" until they could. Putting playoff losses on a quarterback whether they were his fault or not is silly. A 400-yard, 3-TD Wild Card game against the Green Bay Packers doesn't somehow mean Dak "isn't a winner."

But what might really hurt this team's ability to make a Super Bowl push is quarterback uncertainty.

Not only could that impact Dak's play, but it's going to put strain on the locker room. Knowing that the organization doesn't trust your supposed team leader (not to mention not knowing if that leader will even be around much longer) is not a healthy dynamic.

Dak is not the problem in Dallas, and failing to extend him would let everyone see that fact first-hand. Let's not have it get to that point.
