Dallas Week: Cowboys’ Dak Prescott says he’s not afraid to ‘poke the bear’ as his team prepares for Eagles

It’s officially Dallas week, which means Cowboys fans and players are inevitably going to start running their mouths. Even quarterback Dak Prescott is getting in on it this time around, making some eye opening comments during his Monday press conference.

Following Dallas’ win over Los Angeles on Sunday, owner Jerry Jones went on record saying he didn’t want to “poke the bear” ahead of his team’s matchup with the Eagles this Sunday. When Dak was informed of what his owner said, he went in the complete opposite direction.

Dak Prescott on Jones’ comments

“I don’t believe what you just said,” Prescott told reporters after being asked about Jones’ “poke the bear’ comments. “Pour honey on me,” he continued. “I always say that. If you see me and a bear in a fight, pour honey on me, so you can poke it. It’s part of the National Football League. Whether we talk [about it] or not, we know what’s ahead of us. Great opponent. Excited for it.”

These remarks from Prescott came after his teammate Micah Parsons told Cowboys fans to “take over The Linc” this upcoming Sunday. So, we already have two Cowboys players giving the Eagles some bulletin board material, and it’s only Tuesday. Love it.

The Eagles won’t need any extra motivation for this game. The last time these two teams faced, Philly nearly pulled off the upset with Gardner Minshew under center. On Sunday, we’ll get to see two healthy starting quarterbacks, something we didn’t see at all in the two Eagles-Cowboys matchups last season. In fact, we haven’t seen Jalen Hurts and Dak Prescott face off against one another since Week 3 of the 2021 season – over two years ago.

It goes without saying that this is a huge matchup for both teams. Not only will it go a long way in deciding the NFC East, it very well could play a factor in the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoff picture.
