It has been 21 years since the last Super Bowl win of the Dallas Cowboys and since then they hadn’t even made it to the NFC championship game. Their performance after winning their 5th Super Bowl title has been modest and being regarded as one of the most valuable NFL teams mean they need to repay their fans with another streak of winning runs.

The 1995 Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl winning coach Barry Switzer has stated that he has now enjoyed watching the Cowboys for the first time in 20 years and has told owner Jones about it —

“I visited with Jerry on the phone. I told him this is the first time in 20 years I’ve enjoyed watching the Cowboys. I watch every darn play now. Those two rookies, they’ve put a lot of excitement into it.’’

The rookies that Switzer is referring to are Running Back Ezekiel Elliott and Quarterback Dak Prescott who have now propelled the Cowboys to a 10-1 record.

Prescott has already passed for 2,835 yards and has 18 touchdowns while Elliott is #1 in rushing with 1,199 yards,

These two rookies have the talent to backup the strong offensive and defensive linemen of the Cowboys and they might not have the experience in years but they will be watched throughout the playoffs and possibly be cheering to see them bring the Super Bowl to Dallas once again.

One of bigger test of the Cowboys will come on the 1st of December when they visit the Minnesota Vikings as the team ranks 2nd in scoring defense and could very well keep these two rookies scoring at a minimum.

Prescott knows this — “It will be one of our better challenges through the year. They’re ranked high in pretty much every category defensively, and the numbers don’t lie. You watch the film, and the stats tell it all. So we’re excited. We know they’re a good team.’’

If the Dallas Cowboys will be seen as Super Bowl contenders the game against the Minnesota will make a strong case for these two rookies.

Dallas Cowboys Defeats Redskins Frustrating for Donte Whitner

The Dallas Cowboys continue to ride high and have now improved to 10 wins against 1 loss; defeating the Washington Redskins despite Kirk Cousins throwing three touchdowns on the 4th quarter.

Dak Prescott led the offense with two touchdowns to put the Cowboys past the Redskins 31-26.

Redskins safety Donte Whitner says he and the rest of the team is frustrated playing against the Cowboys as Dak seems to have a lot of options for the offense that makes it very hard to predict their next move.

Dak has ability to run the ball and score a touchdown, can pass it off to Ezekiel Elliot who is one the top RBs in the league, or throw it to a health Dez Bryant.

As per Donte Whitner — “They’re very frustrating. You have a lot of quarterbacks in the National Football League that take chances with the football and [you] get the opportunity for interceptions. To put the ball on the ground when you get to them, when you sack them. This quarterback doesn’t do that. … That’s why he’s playing so well. He understands situations, he’s not trying to turn the football over, and he’s taking this opportunity and running with it.”

Even Redskins defensive end Chris Baker has same sentiments:

“[Dak Prescott] showed a lot of poise, made the plays that he was supposed to make whether it was using his feet or making that perfect throw in the corner. He did what he had to do to win the game. That’s why their record is the way they are. They can run with Dak, they can pass with him, give it to [Ezekiel Elliott]. They’re 10-1 for a reason.”

The Dallas Cowboys has found a gem in Dak Prescott and would continue to ride the success and provide lots of frustrations to their opponents.

Dak Prescott Model Behavior On and Off Field

Dak Prescott has certainly caught the attention of Cowboy fans, rivals and bandwagon people with his on field dominance game after game. We just cannot get enough of Dak and even the camera follow him through off the field catching him cleaning up his own trash.

On Sunday’s win against the Baltimore Ravens the TV cameras were focused on him on the bench as he was drinking a cup of water. His brilliance on the field seemed off after he missed throwing the cup on the garbage behind him and instead of forgetting about it, he stood up and threw it properly. In this professional sport players especially the likes of Dak are surrounded with helpers all around him that he didn’t have to lift a finger to get a drink.

What seemed to be a basic behavior is not something you see even for regular guys, trash is left on cinemas, on the roads, drivers opening up their window to kick something out the road.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has this to say — “He’s a neat freak, I’d say that’s a positive story about Dak.”

Superstar attitude has not taken over this kid and we just hope he would continue with his humble and overall great person attitude as he climb up the stars.
