We've talked a lot about how good of a game Dak Prescott had on Saturday night. It's been all over this site, and frankly all over the internet. From Dez Bryant, to Jason Garrett, to Tony Romo, people are singing the praises of the fourth-round rookie out of Mississippi State. In fact, some fans are wondering if their teams blew it in the draft. Our sister site, Revenge of the Birds, wonders if the Cardinals should have pulled the trigger on Dak to backup Carson Palmer, another aging quarterback.

But since the Cowboys blocked so well for him, he showed that he had all the other traits you want in a franchise quarterback. But, they also concluded it was just one outing, let's get a bigger sample size before making any hard decisions on Prescott.
