Former NFL star Plaxico Burress thinks the Dallas Cowboys can't win a Super Bowl with Dak Prescott as their quarterback. Prescott, a fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2016 and it looked like the Cowboys struck gold with the Mississippi State product.
But seven seasons have passed since Prescott entered the league and the Cowboys haven't yet ended their Super Bowl drought. In the last two seasons, 29-year-old Prescott just failed to deliver in the playoffs. Burress, who won a Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2008, thinks he knows why the Cowboys haven't had playoff success in recent years.
"I believe he's reached his ceiling as a quarterback with the Dallas Cowboys. They can win, but they won't win a championship with him," Burress said on The Carton Show.

In the divisional round, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Cowboys 19-12.
Prescott had two costly interceptions and many blamed the quarterback for the Cowboys' loss. At the time, there were speculations about Prescott's future in Dallas. But then, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones publicly showed support for Prescott.
"I've got all the faith in the world we can win this thing with Dak. Because we know him. We know what he's about. His leadership skills are undeniable. Impeccable work ethic. Other than he hadn't won some key playoff games, he's everything you want in a quarterback.
From the day he walked in the door, he's won a lot of games. We just got to get over the hump," Jones told ESPN shortly after the 2022 season ended. Prescott maybe has gotten a new chance with the Cowboys but many believe the 29-year-old quarterback will be on the clock in 2023. It remains to be seen if this year Prescott can lead the Cowboys to their first Super Bowl win since 1995.
