The Web’s Most Searched Questions, Answered – Dak Prescott
We researched the top 5 web-searched questions about some of your favorite Dallas Cowboys and took the liberty of answering them for you.
Is Dak Prescott… Married?
Nope! According to the media, he’s had a couple of girlfriends here and there. In 2017, it was rumored that he was dating a Dallas local but neither have confirmed anything as of yet. Shoot your shot, ladies. 😉
Is Dak Prescott… In Madden 2017?
Yes! And at one point in the season, had an overall rating of 97! If we’re being completely honest, I have no idea what that means but after watching the video above of him, Zeke, and other 2016 rookies reacting to their ratings, I’m guessing that’s a good thing! So way to go, Dak!
Is Dak Prescott… Left-handed?
Nope, he’s a righty like all of the other QBs in the NFL right now.

The idea of the “extinct left-handed quarterback” has become a topic of discussion as the 2016 NFL season was the first in modern league history in which a left-handed quarterback did not throw a single pass!

Is Dak Prescott… In the Pro Bowl?
He was last year! The 2017 Pro Bowl included two Cowboys Rookies: the duo, Prescott and Elliott.
At the time, Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott were leading all players – Elliott lead the NFL in rushing yards while Prescott completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 3,418 yards, 20 touchdowns and four interceptions! The two were among just three first-year players to have been selected. To say we’re expecting big things from the pair this 2018 season, now that Zeke is back and has no threat of suspension of his head, is an understatement!
Is Dak Prescott… Elite?
Honestly, my answer would be totally biased. So I’ll spare you. Instead, here are what some more important people with more meaningful opinions have to say on the matter:
“[Dak] obviously didn’t have the year stat-wise or the most important one of all, we didn’t win the games that we won the first year. … I can’t tell you how excited I am about our future with Dak Prescott and getting the job done. Winning games. Now, he’s got to have some serious help. He’s got to have it from the scheme, he’s got to have it from everything we call on because it’s that competitive in the NFL. But boy, he’s got everything to do it.
“He’s physical, he can throw the ball well enough, he can handle adversity, he can prepare. … I’ll assure you this, I’ll say this unequivocally, Dak is so much better prepared to have a winning season and have us meet our expectations in his third year than he was going into his second because of the very experience that he’s had, the adversity that he’s had. That’s costly stuff to get adversity. We lost a lot of games with [Troy] Aikman early. You pay a high price to get this experience, but we’ve got it.”
“I think he’s absolutely the right kind of guy to have as the quarterback of your organization. I think he’s demonstrated that time and time again. Now, if you pull back and look at what he’s done in his first two years of his career, he’s won 22 out of 32 games, he’s 22-10 as a starting quarterback in the National Football League. You reflect back at other quarterbacks as they have started their careers no one has really had that kind of success like he has.
“Now, is he perfect? Absolutely not. Does he need to get better? Absolutely he does. We’re focused on that. But he’s done a lot of really good things in a short period of time for us. He’ll continue to grow because of the kind of person he is.”
Dak’s managing his career as he’s trying to manage a team, and then make sure he feeds certain people like Dez Bryant. It’s a lot when you’re talking about a second-year guy. Some of the conversations I had with Tony while we were on the road during Thursday Night Football. We were talking about it and he would say, “Sometimes, Michael, I would just went off my read, because they knew I needed to get Dez involved.” I know the mentality of him, just like Troy (Aikman) would know me…
“Dak’s a careful guy, so we’re asking him to break some of the things he knows to just trust Dez. That’s a process, because he’s trying to make sure he wins his job and lead his team, but I think you just stick with this process one more time. You get Zeke back, and get everybody back healthy, and let’s roll. You’ve got to take this opportunity.”
“Dak stepped out of his lane this year in trying to get that relationship with Dez [by] throwing passes and doing things and taking chances he wouldn’t normally take. But that doesn’t mean, to me, that Dez is not a No. 1 receiver?
“It just means they have to grow together. And as we remember, that Dak is just a second-year player. For what he’s done in his two years, it’s nothing short of incredible [with] the growth he has and playing the way he has played. He still has a lot to learn.”
“I don’t think [comparing him to Russell Wilson] is expecting too much. I think that we saw last year how well he did after being in college, not taking snaps from under center, and had not run play action, and yet he worked hard at it. It was obvious. Coaching staff did a heck of a job with him, and he went out and had one of the great years by any rookie quarterback.
“Knowing Dak, I think he’s a guy that you can’t really put into a box because you really miss the point if all you do is evaluate him as a player or his physical abilities … you have to know the guy to know the time he’s going to put in and how important it is to him. So, this guy wants to be great. He’ll go back — as he does each week, and especially in the offseason — he’ll evaluate the areas where he needs to get better, and he’ll put in a great deal of time in the offseason to do that.”
So there you have it!
