“I know Dak is ready for the next season, that’s all you can do,” Ferguson explained, per Kevin Patra of the NFL’s website.

“You can’t look back and you know, have any sort of just, ‘Oh, I made a bad play, so we lost.’ No, it’s just on to the next. It’s over with. So we played that game, clock’s zero, it’s time to move on to the next week.”

Prescott helped the Cowboys win the NFC East title with a 12-5 record and subsequently was named a finalist for The Associated Press’ 2023 NFL MVP Award.

But the 30-year-old was criticized by many analysts and fans after throwing a pair of interceptions in Dallas’ 48-32 home playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The result dropped Prescott’s postseason record to 2-5 and, as a result, the Cowboys are still looking to complete their first trip to the NFC Championship Game since winning the Super Bowl in January 1996.

“I always like to think, ‘We’re the Dallas Cowboys. Any team that plays us is going to be at their best every minute,’” Ferguson said of what went wrong in the Jan. 14 game against Green Bay.

I won’t have to make that accusation against them.” They are directing all their forces against us. It’s a kill or be killed mentality. “We have to kill them first.”

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is facing an interesting offseason as coach Mike McCarthy enters the final year of his contract, and Jones is expected to receive a salary cap increase of approximately $59.46 million in 2024.

A decision must be made on how to fulfill Prescott’s deal. Prescott will have another opportunity to lead the Cowboys to at least the final round of the NFC playoffs next January,

and Ferguson insisted he has done the work necessary to get the team ready to “go straight” through the wall. Performance at the Super Bowl.
