It seems like there’s always the same-old story with the Dallas Cowboys.
Despite not being even the best team in the NFC, they always try and convince their fans that they can go the distance and win the Super Bowl that season.
That’s mostly because of the dominant team they used to be nearly three decades ago, as well as the success they’ve found as a lucrative franchise and sports market.
But there’s no actual or logical reason to believe that this version of the Cowboys has what it takes to reach the Super Bowl, let alone win one.
That’s why Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe laughed at Mike McCarthy’s goal of having Dak Prescott play 20 games next season.

Sharpe pointed out the fact that the Cowboys actually went 4-1 without Prescott last season, citing that his health isn’t the reason why they underachieved again.
Instead, Sharpe blamed Prescott’s well-documented inconsistency for their shortcomings.
You never seem to know what version of him you’ll see week in and week out, and that has hurt them way more often than his injury-proneness.
Prescott missed five games last season, yet he still threw a league-high 15 interceptions in the regular season, plus two in the playoffs.
He’s no longer a scrambler, and his decision-making has left a lot to be desired throughout the past couple of seasons.
More than that, McCarthy has raised several doubts about his actual ability to lead the Cowboys to go the distance, so maybe he should temper his expectations.NEXT: The Cowboys Held A Private Workout Today With QB Prospect
