As the autograph controversy swirls, Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Dak Prescott has another critic ready to put his signature on another downturn for the former Mississippi State star.
Cowherd, on his The Herd With Colin Cowherd show on FS1, said Thursday that Dallas and Dak could be headed downhill this season.

“The thing about Dak, and I like him a lot,” Cowherd began, “but there was a series of things that happened that were advantageous to the young man.”
Cowherd listed a historically good offensive line, the injury and then mentorship of Tony Romo, the emergence of fellow rookie Ezekiel Elliott as a dominant running back, and the team’s fourth-place schedule as reasons that Prescott was fortunate.
Cowherd also said the recent Damien Wilson arrest, the fourth Dallas player to be arrested this offseason, is a sign of unrest that could be coming to Dallas.
“I just worry about a 23-year-old quarterback – it’s hard enough to lead at 23 – this now surrounding him.”
Prescott has also been accused of using a machine to sign his autograph for him on select Panini football cards.
