Jerry and Stephen Jones are dissatisfied with Dak Prescott.
Dak Prescott, the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, has been chastised for his late-game rushing touchdown in Sunday’s 43-3 rout of the Atlanta Falcons.
And the phone calls are coming from within the home.
Both Cowboys owner-general manager Jerry Jones and vice president Stephen Jones expressed displeasure with Prescott’s decision to put himself in harm’s way for a meaningless touchdown less than a month after suffering a calf strain on their weekly radio appearances.
Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, November 16 that he is concerned about it, according to The Athletic.
“We’ve come to realize that at the end of the year, it’s all about standing.”
The hardest part of accumulating wealth, according to Warren Buffett, is being present to spend it.
“Let’s not do that,” Stephen Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on 105.3 The Fan.
“But that’s Dak, right?”
Finally, we must protect Dak from Dak, but he is the ultimate competitor.”
This comes just one day after Cowboys legend Michael Irvin slammed Prescott, telling him not to “do that s*** again.”
During the game, Irvin tweeted, “We don’t need that TD that bad bro!! @dak don’t do that s*** again!!!! WE NEED YOU HEALTHY!!!!”

Dak Apologizes for Putting Himself in Danger
With a 36-3 lead, the play in question happened near the end of the third quarter.
Prescott kept the ball on a 4th-and-2 from the Atlanta four-yard line after a play-fake to Ezekiel Elliott and scrambled to his left, colliding with several defenders near the end zone before breaking the plane.
This would be the Cowboys’ final score of the game, capping off a historically significant victory.
And knowing his day was coming to an end meant a little more to Dak, who has battled ankle, shoulder, and leg injuries — as well as the criticism that comes with them — for the past year.
According to Yahoo Sports, Prescott said in his postgame press conference, “I had to re-establish some toughness.”
“At that point, I was about to dive and realized I had the defender squared up because I didn’t want the ball to go off a guy’s leg or something like that.”
