Dallas Cowboys trade rumors: Prescott fitting nicely in QB role

Dak is not Romo, but he is saving the Cowboys in what should already be a lost season.

The Washington Redskins dropped to 0-2 after losing to the Cowboys on Sunday, 27-23, in a game that featured a key Kirk Cousins interception in the red zone in the fourth quarter. In week two we continue to see Kirk Cousins throw the ball to heavily defended players as others are wide open on the field. But one thing that I've heard fans echo, is that the play calling was poor. "Dak is an fantastic player". I don't understand it.

"I think he's an excellent decision-maker", Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Prescott.

Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and rookie quarterback Dak Prescott executed their game plan efficiently, with Prescott completing 73.3 percent of his passes for 292 yards.

Cousins is playing under a $19.95 million franchise tag this season, so the expectation was that he would build off the 4,166 passing yards and 34 total touchdowns he contributed previous year.

"Their run game is such a point of emphasis", Kerrigan said. The offensive line was in synch throughout the game, giving Cousins plenty of time to read the field.

Trailing 23-20 with 10:35 remaining in the game, Prescott was handed a ideal chance to panic and lose the game. Over the past two games, he's thrown only 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions. And while they shouldn't be able to anticipate exactly when the league is going to pop up and say it's time to let them check for illegal substances, there must be about a thousand better times throughout the season when the test can take place. "Guys see that and respond to that".

Prescott hit Beasley with a hard, perfectly thrown ball toward the sidelines that takes guts, heat and accuracy. Six plays later, Dustin Hopkins kicked a 29-yard field goal to tie the game.

If your quarterback is struggling, and you have some good running backs, you run the ball, right? The only bigger fun waste of time in sports are college recruiting rankings.

"It's been fun", Prescott said.

"I think he just needs to relax, calm down and play the position", Gruden told CSN's Rob Carlin, when asked how he handles a quarterback who appears to be struggling with the mental side of the game. "I have great people around me to help me do that".

True to form in recent years, the Cowboys secured their first victory of the 2016 season in a nail biter of a game. That followed a one-point loss to the New York Giants in Week One. Cousins will force passes - he has done that since the Redskins drafted him.

He has tossed just one touchdown to three interceptions.

Murphy was initially moved to defensive end, then moved back to linebacker by the coaching staff after a season-ending injury to Junior Galette. He underthrew rookie Josh Doctson later in the game, and although Doctson came down with the catch, he was forced to stop his route to do so, allowing the defense to catch up to him and make the tackle. It's going to happen, but Prescott is pristine. "Everything else will take care of itself".
