It’s time to find out if Dak Prescott can carry the Cowboys
Dak Prescott has gone from late round draft pick to franchise quarterback in a little over a year, but has had the benefit of relying on a dominant offensive line and Ezekiel Elliott to run the ball since being named the starter.
With Elliott beginning to serve his suspension this week, Colin thinks now is the time we will find out if Dak can lead Dallas to the playoffs without having the luxury of leaning on Elliott and the running game.
This is when we find out if Dak belongs in the top tier of quarterbacks that put their franchises on their back, or if he’s just a really good quarterback in the perfect situation.
Russell Westbrook is better alone than trying to fit in with a Big 3
The Thunder and there new Big 3 are off to a slow start, and unlike Cleveland, who’s missing one of their key pieces in Isaiah Thomas, OKC is at full strength. It’s not working now, and based on what he’s seen, Colin isn’t sure they will ever develop into a serious contender in the West.
Some people are better as solo acts, instead of part of a group, and with Westbrook, he’s more effective when he’s unleashed as a force of nature, rather than trying to go out of his way to make sure Carmelo and Paul George are happy.
