Cowboys' Stephen Jones 'absolutely' believes Dak Prescott can lead the team to a Super Bowl title

The Dallas Cowboys continue to have faith that Dak Prescott is the quarterback who can lead the franchise to its first Super Bowl title since 1995.

Executive vice president Stephen Jones told Mad Dog Sports Radio’s Adam Schein that Prescott, who turns 31 in July, is the leader the team needs to reach those kinds of heights again.

“Absolutely. I mean, I totally believe Dak can lead us to a championship,” Jones said. “He does everything the right way. Without a doubt he is the leader of this football team. He keeps everyone motivated in the off-season. He has everyone working and doing everything necessary to try hard and give themselves every opportunity to win.” a championship.

“It just so happens that sometimes, you know, that old oblong ball doesn’t bounce your way. And we’ve had some tough times and tough games there in the postseason. But, you know, we’ve won 12 games in three.” years in a row, I think that’s at the top in terms of what teams have done over a three-year period and, you know, we’re close to the rim. , to use a basketball term, and dunk it. We’re hanging around the hoop. “We just have to do the job.”

The Cowboys have yet to “get the job done” since Prescott took over starting quarterback duties in 2016. While they have won four NFC East titles and made the playoffs in five of those eight seasons, they have yet to advance to the NFC. title game and have a postseason record of 2-5.

Hanging over this issue is the fact that Prescott’s contract ends after the 2024 season. He currently has a four-year, $160 million contract and a possible extension would be a great commitment for the team. The team also has to think about long-term extensions for receiver CeeDee Lamb or linebacker Micah Parsons as they maneuver their future salary cap.

Prescott is coming off an MVP-level season with more than 4,500 passing yards and an NFL-best 36 touchdowns with a career-best 69.5 completion percentage. But failing to make it in the postseason has cast doubt on Jones’ belief that Prescott is the one who can lead the team to a title.

The Cowboys’ 48-32 playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers in January overshadowed Prescott’s season, and for all their success in the regular season, the team as a whole has continually failed to translate that into the playoffs.

Owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys are “all in” for 2024, which will only increase the pressure on Prescott and his supporting cast to affirm management’s beliefs that they are the right pieces to deliver a championship.
