The Dallas Cowboys are out of the playoffs, thanks in part to a questionable decision from quarterback Dak Prescott.

Prescott’s decision to run the ball to the middle of the field and attempt to kill the clock with time dwindling ended up costing the Cowboys a shot at the win against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

That one play, however, doesn’t define Prescott. He’s still viewed as an elite leader — on and off the field.

Dallas linebacker Micah Parsons, in fact, shared a story on Sunday about Prescott’s elite off-the-field leadership.

According to Parsons, Prescott went to the team and had everyone throw in $500 to help the players on the practice squad since those players don’t get the same playoff check.

You can’t teach leadership like that. Prescott could’ve done things differently at the end of the 49ers game, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s the right quarterback to lead the Cowboys.
