ESPN analyst Will Cain said on ESPN's First Take that the Dallas Cowboys have a big problem on their hands. A quarterback problem.
Last season Prescott completed 67.8 percent of his passes for 3,667 yards and just four interceptions. This year he completed 62.8 percent of his passes for 3,324 yards and 13 interceptions.
Here's what Cain said:
"There is no doubt that the Cowboys have a quarterback problem. Something has happened to Dak Prescott. Something has happened. He is lost. The guy that we saw a year ago, the guy that I think is real, by the way, not a mirage...the guy that we know is gone right now and my only hope is we can find him and he can find himself and come back.
"But when I told you this year... that I would take Dak Prescott over Carson Wentz, I believed that and he gave me evidence to believe that. His ceiling, and I still believe this, is top give QB in the league. He has all the intangibles, all the athletic ability, all the smarts, everything you need to be a franchise QB in the NFL, but he has not been that guy for going on a month. I think it started when Adrian Clayborn put him on the ground six times against the falcons. The team as a whole put him on the ground 8 times.
"... Here's what I see: I see a guy who's eyes are not looking down the field, who's seeing ghosts, who's missing wide-open players. When he threw that pick-six on Sunday, Jason Witten was standing wide open 15 yards down the field for a first down. Dak just didn't see him... He's not finding plays down the field and now, as a result, he's doing things he never did. He's making mistakes."
