Dallas Cowboys slammed for “thrown Dak Prescott under the bus” after playoff shocker

The Dallas Cowboys’ promising season came to an abrupt end last week thanks to the San Francisco 49ers.

A 19-12 loss to the 49ers in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs ended Dallas’ Super Bowl hopes for another season.

One of the biggest storylines to emerge from that recent disappointing playoff run was quarterback Dak Prescott’s game, which has faced severe criticism since the game.

Prescott threw for 206 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions to end a season in which he led the league with fifteen interceptions, level on points with Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills — who played three more games than the Cowboys star.

Following their loss, the Cowboys released an article about the loss accompanied by a caption on Twitter, which divided opinion on social media.

The caption read: “Dak Prescott gave the ball away twice in the narrow loss to the 49ers, in a matchup the Cowboys had a chance of winning if they didn’t inflict self-inflicted wounds again.”

This candid take on their star quarterback’s performance on this public platform has garnered 16.6 million views on Twitter and nearly 7,700 quote retweets.

Members of the media, as well as current and former players, have spoken out against this public criticism of Prescott, with former All-Pro defensive tackle Gerald McCoy indicate: “You are all shit to this man.

“The guy gives everything and just wants to win.

“He’s your starting QB. Idc whatever your protocol is or whatever you want to call it. You don’t do that to your players. NO WAY!! The world can beat him up, NOT YOU.

“Protect your players!!”

Retired former All-Pro linebacker Shawne Merriman also chimed in. Leave a Comment: “Damn, that’s cold, it’s ok for the fans and outside media to do this, but never by the home team.”

While reporter Crissy Froyd said: “I’m all for transparency, but there’s nothing right about throwing your own quarterback under the bus from the team’s official Twitter account.”

However, according to Sports Illustrated’s Mike Fisher, that tweet did not signal ongoing controversy within the Cowboys.

He wrote: “Totally understandable why not everyone is aware of this, but… no #cowboy controversy here.

“#JerryJones’ longstanding policy of letting journalism do it…which he does well.”

Whether the Cowboys were right to post that caption is arguably subjective.

And while he has yet to address the controversial tweet, Prescott slammed his own game after the loss, admitting it was disappointing.

When it came to discussing his interceptions, Prescott took the blame and said they were 100% mine.

With Prescott heading into his final year of contract, team owner Jerry Jones will have to decide sooner or later whether he believes the former fourth-round pick can be the guy to propel them into the next phase of the playoffs in the years to come.
