Dak Prescott 'ready' to prove Cowboys doubters wrong

Dak Prescott says he is looking forward to proving all the Dallas Cowboys doubtes wrong this upcoming season. Last season, the Cowboys won the NFC East and made the playoffs. This offseason, the Cowboys lost Amari Cooper, Cedrick Wilson, Randy Gregory, while Michael Gallup and Tyron Smith are set to miss the start of the season due to injuries.

The Cowboys currently only have one wide receiver who has caught a regular season pass from Prescott - that is CeeDee Lamb. Going into the season, the general belief is that the Cowboys weaker than they were last season.

"Where we are right now, it's all excitement. It's truly a privilege to be the quarterback of this team, to be a leader of these guys, offense, defense, this coaching staff that we have," Prescott said, via ESPN.

"And yeah, especially with everything being said about us -- you know what I mean? -- the lack of what we have, keep writing, keep talking. We're ready to go play."

Prescott believes the Cowboys can win it all

Last season, the Cowboys won the NFC East with a 12-5 record, but then suffered a devastating loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the wild card round.

It was a yet another very disappointing end to the Cowboys' season. "I believe high expectations create higher results," Prescott said. "I feel like I'm my biggest critic. I'm tough on myself. I'm always going to hold myself to extreme, super-high expectations, higher than I think anyone else can.

When you feel other people have those expectations for you as well, it's fun. It's fun. At that point, what you believe in yourself, other people believe in it, too. You just want to continue to improve and be the best you can." The Cowboys open their season by hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
