Dak Prescott is in his third NFL season with the Dallas Cowboys, and at this point we have seen enough of him to tell can be inconsistent at times under center. The early grace period is quickly coming to an end for Dak, and while some fans are still feeling bullish about the young QB's future after a second trip to the playoffs in three seasons, that's far from a consensus opinion. 


Legendary Cowboys QB Roger Staubach had a chance to weigh in on the Dak debate on 105.3 "The Fan" sports radio this morning. Count him among those continuing to back the former Mississippi State Bulldog.

​​Over the pass three seasons, Dak has started all 48 games of his NFL career. He has completed 66 percent of his passes, throwing for close to 11,000 yards and 67 touchdowns. Prescott has also been positively received around the NFL, having been selected to two Pro Bowls and winning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors in 2016.


But was Staubach's comment about Dak Prescott's inconsistency being similar to Tom Brady's early years accurate? 


Well, TB12's first 48 starts are virtually identical to Prescott's in terms of stats. Brady completed 61 percent of his passes, threw for about 10,000 yards and racked up 69 touchdowns.


The only thing Brady does have over Dak is that by Brady's third season in the NFL -- and only his second year starting -- was that he not only had a Super Bowl ring, but also game MVP honors. Prescott has only played in three playoff games in his career thus far.

The Dallas Cowboys are a young team that can really become a force to be reckoned with in the league for years to come. If Prescott continues to improve and be a leader on the field, his future will be bright in the NFL.
