“Next 12 months opens, 2018, my Cowboys fall to 3-5. Is that doable with Rayne Dakota Prescott on the reins? 3-5? It was a Monday evening at Jerry world in opposition to Tennessee. Titans 28-14, Dak was terrible. When the sport ended, I took my No. 4 jersey, my spouse Ernestine adopted me, taping me as I threw it within the trash. 

“If you had told me that night, that fairly soon, Jerry Jones would pay Dak Prescott $75 million to play quarterback for one year for the Cowboys, I would’ve thrown you in the trash!”
