During his weekly radio interview with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, Jerry Jones made headlines when threw his franchise quarterback, Dak Prescott right under the bus when comparing him to Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes and former Cowboys QB Tony Romo:
Jones was asked if there was a gap between the Cowboys and Chiefs. Jones answered by praising Patrick Mahomes and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, while throwing shade at his franchise quarterback:
“[Mahomes] is I think at the highest level right now because of frankly as much as just his natural ability to make plays, his mobility. This guy’s very quick and elusive and can get in and out of situations with his feet and buy time. The quarterback we played Sunday [Russell Wilson] is of that kind of nature. He has great ability to get in and out and then make the play. That play Dak made at the end of the game that got intercepted, well, the result of Dak’s ability that let him get that ball off was really great and outstanding. Well, these guys do that — have that ability a lot — they are very quick-footed. They have the unique ability to possibly take their eyes away from the field for a minute and then immediately focus back and see. Romo had that. So he could turn his back and turn around and hand-eye and get it done quick.”
The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott failed to come to an agreement on a long-term extension this past offseason, which led Dak to play on a one-year franchise tag.
This surely will cause major drama in Big D.
