Dak Prescott's final comments on his rookie season with the Dallas Cowboys
Over the weekend, the Dallas Cowboys suffered a 34-31 divisional home playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Despite failing to end a drought of 20 years (now 21) without an appearance in the NFC Championship Game, the Cowboys have a bright future with quarterback Dak Prescott under center.
Prescott shattered numerous rookie records in 2016, where he led his team to a 13-3 regular season record and capped it off by throwing for 300-plus yards and three touchdowns in the playoff defeat.
Earlier this week, the former Mississippi State star addressed the media on the last day of availability for the 2016 season and reflected on the tough loss, the special team they had, and looking forward to the future.
“It stinks. But it was fun, it was a great year,” Prescott said, per the team website. “Great teammates, great coaches. That’s the reality of it though, we all want to be back together. That’s kind of what that team meeting was about. It’s the business of this league; it’s part of it. But yeah, it sucks.
“A feeling like this never goes away,” he continued. “Knowing how special this team was, the group of men on this team, it was truly special — the way we reacted, the way we loved each other. But at the same time, you’ve got to move on. That’s what I’ll do and I’ll use that feeling to help me move on and go and put the work in to get better.
“As coach says, the only thing that matters is what we do now. What I do to make myself better, what I do to help my teammates get better that are going to be on this team in the future, and to just stay focused.”
