One more not so fun fact…Dak Prescott has thrown for under 200 yards in 5 straight games, the longest streak by a Cowboys QB since Quincy Carter (5 straight) in 2003.

Do you remember Quincy Carter? Of course you don’t. He was the Dallas Cowboys quarterback for 4 years and broke out in 2003 with a 3,300-yard season that resulted in a 10-6 record for the boys. He tossed a career-high 17 touchdowns that paired quite well with his 21 interceptions.
Carter was a pretty average quarterback and had a career 18-16 win-loss record. Textbook average. Dak Prescott mirroring Quincy Carter’s career is noooot a great look for ya boy Dak. Prescott hasn’t thrown for 200 yards in 9 out of his last 11 games.
That’s bad bad not good.
On Sunday afternoon in what I’ll call a must-win for the Cowboys, Prescott went 19-for-34 with just 168 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions to Earl Thomas. Those are the numbers of a backup quarterback just trying to keep the team above water before the real starter returns from a hamstring injury.
Sure, we can talk about the Cowboys not having any receivers but at the same time, Ezekiel Elliot ran for over 100 yards against the Seahawks. Dak is not alone out there. All the Cowboys have to do is run a play action and the defense is frozen in their tracks for Dak to throw it over the top.
The problem is, Dak is a coward and can’t throw the ball further than 5 yards in front of him. Dak Prescott makes Alex Smith look like Brett Favre.
But we all know Dak is a conservative who stands on his tiptoes during the National Anthem and then runs to the booth to shine Jerry Jones’s shoes so we shouldn’t be surprised he isn’t fast and loose with the football.
Sam Bradford is trash but now Josh Rosen is the Cardinals starter. Nathan Peterman is a garbage can but now Josh Allen is the starter. Blake Bortles is taking the Jags to AFC Championship games. If you honestly look at all 32 starting quarterbacks, *whispers but whispers loud enough so that everyone in the room can hear* Dak Prescott is the worst starting quarterback in the NFL.
I’m so happy.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you’re ready to anoint Dak Prescott the worst QB in the league. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
