Week 5 was a poor showing for everyone on the Dallas Cowboys, but especially quarterback Dak Prescott. The veteran looked completely shell-shocked playing in a massive game (again), and his massive struggles under center doomed Dallas from ever competing with the San Francisco 49ers.
Prescott's play has drummed up more serious discussions about his viability as a franchise QB. Owner Jerry Jones was pressed about his quarterback on Tuesday, and it's safe to say he didn't tell fans what they want to hear.
Jones showed complete faith in Prescott, saying the team "a quarterback that can get us there.” He later double down during his radio interview, once again stating Prescott is a Super Bowl-caliber QB.
Jones having confidence in his QB is one thing, but fans don't want that to turn into pure blind faith. After all, this is a disturbing pattern of Prescott simply failing to show up for huge games, which limits this team's potential.
Dallas had a near-perfect offseason, bringing in impactful veterans like Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore at major positions of need to soldify this roster as a contender. However, for whatever reason, the Cowboys continue to struggle against truly top-flight teams.
If Prescott can't lead the team to a successful postseason run, it's worth contemplating his future. A loaded roster will only go so far without an elite QB who shows up when the lights are brightest.
