The Dallas Cowboys enter the season as a bit of a question mark.
Not many analysts believe they have what it takes to make it out of the NFC, and most of that is due to their quarterback situation.
That’s why Stephen A. Smith believes all the pressure will be on Dak Prescott, not Mike McCarthy, next season.
Even without Kellen Moore as Offensive Coordinator, and despite all the jokes, Stephen A. believes McCarthy is actually a very good coach.

He believes it’s about time the Cowboys and the fans get something in return from Dak Prescott, stating that he’s been in the league for eight years with no NFC Championship Game or Super Bowl appearances despite already getting a big payday.
Smith also says that, as much as the Cowboys will favor the running game and make Tony Pollard the centerpiece of their offense, Prescott will have to throw the football down the field more often next season now that Dalton Schultz is no longer with the team, thus leaving him more exposed.
The Cowboys have a solid receiving corps, an ever improving defense, and a veteran coach leading the way.
Once again, the only glaring issue that pops up now is their quarterback situation.
The clock is ticking on Dak Prescott, and the chances of him taking another leap forward in his game at this point in his career are pretty close to zero.
If anything, it’s more likely that he’ll regress even further, especially considering his recent history of injuries.
