Viral Dak Prescott haircut earns Jalen Hurts comparison

Stephen A. Smith isn’t the only one throwing shade at Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys. As Dak’s own brother Tad Prescott recently revealed, even some Cowboys fans frequently troll the star quarterback.

Despite leading the Cowboys to the NFC East title, the jabs at Prescott seem relentless. Even some within the Cowboys fanbase don’t consider him their “franchise QB.” And now, Dak has once again found himself the target of online ridicule, this time for his recent haircut.

Fans react to Dak Prescott’s viral haircut

Dak Prescott is seemingly trying to shake off the disappointments of the previous season by getting a fresh haircut. However, to some fans, it appears strikingly similar to the style of Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts. The quarterback rivalry seems to extend beyond the field, and fans wasted no time taking to social media to share their thoughts.

A fan wrote, “Bro wanna be Jalen hurts so bad.”

Even some Cowboys supporters couldn’t help but notice the resemblance.

A fan wrote, “I’m crying 😂😂😂😂😂 why does my Qb look like a older Jalen hurts.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jone, determined to break the playoff barrier that has persisted since 1995, earlier pinned hopes on Prescott’s ability to lead the Cowboys to greater success. He wanted the signal-caller to do ‘better’ in the 2024 NFL season, per Bleacher Report However, some fans joked that a trade is coming for the QB for copying his rival QB.

Another user wrote, “Trade is coming.”

Dak Prescott is surely not trying to copy Jalen Hurts, but the style is just too similar to avoid comparison. Fans love gossiping, and the Cowboys QB will surely not mind this lighthearted banter.
