DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn't criticize Dak Prescott for his fourth quarter game-ending interception on Monday.
A tweet from a local beat writer made the rounds on social media Monday accusing Jones of saying Prescott not making a play on the Cowboys final drive is the difference between he and Patrick Mahomes, or Tony Romo.
What did Jones really say? Jones said Mahomes, Romo and Prescott all have the ability to extend plays. He just believes Mahomes is at the top of the list when it comes to making those kinds of plays.
"And obviously with their quarterback (Mahomes), who I think is at the highest level right now because of his, frankly, as much as just his natural ability to make plays, his mobility. And this guy's very quick and elusive and can get in and out of situations with his feet and buy time," Jones said when asked what the difference.
"The quarterback we played Sunday is of that kind of nature. He's very, has great ability to get in and out and then make the play, that play Dak made at the end of the game that got intercepted. Well the result of Dak's ability that let him get that ball of was really great and outstanding. Well these guys do that, have that ability a lot.
"They are very quick-footed and they are very, they have the unique ability to possibly take their eyes away from the field for a minute and then immediately focus back and see Romo had that.
"And so he can turn his back on it and turn around and hand-eye and get it done quick. And so those are things that show up and that's what's showing up with these guys. They're buying time with their feet, or buying time with their instincts and their feet."
