Fresh of a 40-0 beatdown of the New York Giants in primetime, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 'Shan and RJ' on 105.3 The Fan that he 'didn't need a plane to get home' because he was 'flying high' after the road win.
Jones has every reason to be optimistic about his team's chances of contention this season after the Cowboys' defense sacked Giants quarterback Daniel Jones seven times and forced three turnovers. Another reason for optimism is the fact that his quarterback Dak Prescott protected the ball in the wet conditions and didn't have a single turnover after all the noise from the national pundits this offseason about his high interception total in 2022.
Jones praised Prescott for his performance and called him the best leader the Cowboys have had at the quarterback position during his 35 years of owning the franchise.
"Dak is so sound in his psyche, and he relies on his preparation better than anybody I've ever been around," Jones said. "You get someone that the team will follow, and that's the key. He's the best leader that I've ever seen at that position. And we've been around some good ones. (Troy) Aikman was outstanding and Tony (Romo) I think was just outstanding. But Dak is quite a leader out there at that position."
