Dak Prescott: No ceiling on what team and I can do

Dak Prescott is the focal point of the offseason in Dallas. From contract extension talks to altering the offense to make the Cowboys more dynamic, 2019 has been about getting the most out of the quarterback.

Prescott generated praise this offseason for picking up the new offense under coordinator Kellen Moore, and for his precision during the shorts portion of workouts. As we roll toward training camp, the QB is setting his sights skyward.

"My expectations are high," Prescott said during his annual youth football camp, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. "Not necessarily any ceiling on what I can do or what this team can do. It's just been about work. Simply just working to get better in every aspect of my game, making sure my teammates are doing the same. We're excited for the position we're in."

The position the Cowboys are in includes expectations that the NFC East champs can repeat and take another leap forward toward finally returning to the Super Bowl. With a stacked defense boasting playmakers at every level, one of the top workhorse backs in the NFL in Ezekiel Elliott, an offensive line poised for a bounce back, a dynamic wideout in Amari Cooper and a quarterback still on the rise, the Cowboys are set up to be one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL.

Legendary Dallas GM and current NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt recently ranked the Cowboys as the second most talented team in the NFL heading into 2019.

In three seasons under Prescott, the Cowboys have never finished with fewer than nine wins and boast two division titles. As with all things surrounding the Dallas club, however, it's not enough. Until Prescott helps the Cowboys get back to the promised land, there will always be doubters.
