‘He’s Really Impressing Me’ – Aaron Rodgers Gives High Praise to Cowboys Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are rolling right now. Several have sent praise Dak's way, and you can add Aaron Rodgers to the list of people impressed.

The Dallas Cowboys are on a roll right now. After losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in the final seconds a month ago, Dak Prescott and the ‘Boys have won three straight and have done so in dominant fashion. The team is 5-1 through the last six games of the season, and Prescott has played his way into the MVP conversation.

It seems like everyone around the league is paying attention to what Prescott and the Cowboys are doing right now, and that includes current players.

Aaron Rodgers Gives High Praise to Dak Prescott

While joining the fellas on his weekly spot over at The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers seemingly went out of his way to heap praise for Prescott and how well he has been playing as of late.

“He’s become one of my favorite quarterbacks to watch,” Rodgers began. “I just love that he is really playing the position…he’s using his cadence beautifully.

“I love the way he’s playing, and he’s really impressing me.” I love it, and I just want to shout out Dak for really impressing me.”

Those are powerful words from Rodgers, who has played the position at an extremely high level for a very long time. For Rodgers to, unprovoked, go out of his way to give Prescott praise from an unbiased opinion, speaks volumes to just how well he really is playing right now.

Oftentimes, the Cowboys’ QB gets an unfair amount of attention, with the wins and losses both getting heaped upon the shoulders of the man under center a little more than they should.

Rodgers understands that dynamic, and while there seems to be a lot of varying opinions about Dak and his rank amongst the NFL’s best QBs, Rodgers felt the need to give him the praise he believes he deserves.

Tough Stretch Coming for Dak and the Cowboys

The Cowboys have handled business over the last month against the likes of the New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, and the Washington Commanders. However, things are about to get a whole lot harder for Prescott and the Cowboys going forward.

Next up is a Thursday night matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, followed by matchups with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Buffalo Bills. Dallas’ season wraps up against the Miami Dolphins on Christmas Eve, followed by the Detroit Lions, before ending the season on the road against the Commanders.
