Dak Prescott has won over a lot of people in his early time in the NFL. And one of them thinks he is going to change the way people look at the Dallas Cowboys.
On his morning show, Skip Bayless raved about the rookie and argued that he should continue to be the starter over the injured Tony Romo when Romo comes back. Bayless has pegged Dallas as a the NFC representative in the Super Bowl, despite the fact that Cowboys have not been to the Super Bowl or the NFC Championship game since 1995.
“Dak Prescott is going to change the face of the Dallas Cowboys,” Bayless said. “He already has.”

Bayless and his co-host Shannon Sharpe put the Cowboys postseason shortcomings on owner Jerry Jones. Jones famously fired both Tom Landry and parted ways with Jimmy Johnson, the only two coaches to win Super Bowls with the Cowboys.
Prescott has led the Cowboys to a 5-1 start, including five consecutive wins. The last two wins have come against teams that played in the playoffs last year, Cincinnati and Green Bay. Prescott also set the NFL record for most passes without an interception to start his career, a record that was held by Tom Brady. Prescott has thrown for 1,486 yards and seven touchdowns this year.
The Cowboys are off this week.
