Former Cowboys QB Troy Aikman Trashed Dak Prescott - Sports Gossip
Trouble at QB in the Big D

The Cowboys season is not off to a great start.  They are 2-3 through the first five games.  Their biggest issue seems to be at the quarterback position.

After bursting onto the scene in his rookie year when Tony Romo got injured, Dak Prescott's play has steadily gone down. 

So far on the season he is completing just 61.8 percent of his passes which is 28th in the league and is 24th in passing yards.

Former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman went a sports radio show on Tuesday and trashed Prescott over his accuracy.

Via Sports Day:

"He needs to be more accurate with the football," Aikman told The Musers on The Ticket [KTCK 96.7FM/1310AM]. "I've said for many, many years, as long as I can ever remember, when I'm asked, 'Hey, what do you look for first in a quarterback?' The first thing I look for is accuracy, because the rest of it doesn't matter.

"It doesn't matter how tough you are. It doesn't matter how smart you are or what a great leader you are. None of that stuff matters if you can't put the ball where you have to put it. I've seen too many errant throws in that regard, and then there needs to be a little more anticipation.

"When there's two deep safeties, you're looking for somebody to take the middle of the field, and that should be your first read if you have somebody who is taking the middle of the field versus those kinds of looks. I don't see great anticipation on what a defense is doing and how might I be able to exploit that pre-snap or as the ball is snapped."

Shots fired.  Aikman stopped just short of saying the Cowboys need a new quarterback, but not by much.
