The former NFL star believes the Cowboys are being held back
The Cowboys have solid running and defensive play, but former NFL runner Eddie George believes QB Dak Prescott is the team’s weak point.
After Dallas’ 27-13 win on Thursday night over Tennessee, the former Titans star weighed in on the veteran quarterback.
“As for the midfield… that’s the problem. [Prescott]’Achilles heel’,” said George via Team 33.
Prescott played brilliantly against Tennessee, finishing a 29-41 pass from 282 yards and two TD passes. He also had two interceptions and one loss of the ball.
What George saw on Thursday night didn’t make him feel hopeful about the Cowboys’ chances of going deep in the knockout stages.
George told Team 33 that “offense should be light… not many mistakes” and that he’s seen Prescott take “a lot of forced throws” that an experienced QB shouldn’t make.
For Dallas (12-4) to win its first Super Bowl in 27 years, George came up with a sensible plan.
“Less is more when it comes to Dak Prescott,” he said. “Ask him to throw the ball 25 times or less. Run the ball. Control the clock.”
Prescott is the face of the brand on the pitch. If his performance on Thursday is a sign of things to come, Dallas would be better off if their QBs step back from the season.
