Hurt quarterback Dak Prescott is the only individual benefiting from the Dallas Cowboys‘ dreadful project under first-year head coach Mike McCarthy. He’s better to the franchise than ever since everybody sees his significance to the offense and how skilled he truly is when compared to the inferior replacements who have actually lagged center over the last three weeks.
