Dak Prescott didn’t quite steal the R-E-L-A-X response quarterback Aaron Rodgers made famous last year when fans and media were questioning him about the Green Bay Packers’ 4-6 start. But the sentiment was definitely there when the chuckling Dallas Cowboys quarterback met with the media on Wednesday, fittingly before Sunday’s game against Rodgers and the Packers (3-1). Prescott wanted no part of the nitpicking of his or the team’s so-called struggles on offense that are a decided contrast to the success of a year ago when he had the finest season of any rookie quarterback in league history while leading the Cowboys to a 13-3 mark. And not just from the criticism, but also the silence on his phone and lack of text messages from friends and family. “When you lose, you don’t get any text messages,” Prescott said with smile. “No love when you lose. You don’t hear anything when you lose.” He added that the scrutiny and nitpicking from the media is part of the job. But there is no panic on the Cowboys.
