NFL: Dak felt Cowboys had team 'to get it done'

Dak Prescott thought the Dallas Cowboys "had the team" to go all the way last season and the quarterback says he hopes his voice is heard when it comes to offseason moves the team make to get better in 2022.

The Cowboys, who are 16/1 to win Super Bowl LVII, were an offensive force to be reckoned with last season as they led the league in points scored (31.2 per game) and offensive yards (407).

Dallas fall short again

Prescott threw a franchise-record 37 touchdown passes in 16 regular season games, but America's Team failed to make it past Super Wild Card weekend when they suffered a shock 23-17 home defeat to the San Francisco 49ers.

A month on from the game later, Prescott admits it still hurts that he and his team couldn't travel further down the path to the Super Bowl.

Prescott looks back on season

"You knew not every game was going to be a cakewalk. You know it's not going to be easy," Prescott told USA Today over the phone last week in an interview published on Wednesday.

"I think we're foolish if you think that. You've got to give those other guys credit. (But) what hurts so much about the season is I thought we had the team.

"I thought we were in the position and had the pieces to go get it done."

The six-year veteran signed a four-year, $160million extension with the Cowboys last spring and hopes that he can have some input in the big decisions that need to be taken in order for Dallas to win a championship.

He added: "I'm not going in and knocking on doors saying, 'Hey, I want this done, I want that done.' But I'm pretty sure that my opinion will be valued in certain decisions, as I hope. So with that being said, just plan on helping this team get better in every which way I can."
