High Side: Jason Wood
When the Cowboys lost Tony Romo and Kellen Moore last preseason, even the most ardent Cowboys fan had difficulty mustering optimism. Surely the team would move to acquire a veteran starter since the only option on the roster was a rookie 4th round selection from Mississippi State. Prescott had an impressive collegiate season and was an athletic marvel, but most scouts viewed him as a developmental prospect. His accuracy and ability to read NFL defenses were in doubt, based on the style of play at Mississippi State. Prescott was a human highlight reel in the preseason, prompting the team to go with the rookie as the starter.
