National writer: Let’s see more from Dak Prescott before erasing all doubt; even RGIII ‘looked like a sure thing’     SportsDay DFW Staff, Dallas Morning News

Having Dak Prescott come in and take the starting QB slot in the wake of an injury to Tony Romo and then refuse to surrender the position once the veteran returned is generally viewed as a positive sign for the Dallas Cowboys. However, one national writer is quick to point out that no matter how strong his rookie outing, Prescott is still a mere mortal and the possibility exists that his success could be an anomaly once teams around the NFL get a good book going on him.

There is nothing about Dak Prescott’s first season to discourage confidence, other than the size of the sample.

After 13 games with Chip Kelly, Nick Foles looked like the quarterback of Eagles fans’ dreams. I think Prescott should be fine as long as his offensive line stays together, but a 16-game sample (no matter how brilliant) isn’t enough to erase all doubt.

It is a fair question. The ‘national writer’ being referred to in this article is Dan Graziano, who has made a career of covering the NFC East and witnessed first hand the crash and burn that happened to both Griffin and Foles while serving as ESPN’s New York Giants beat writer.
