Dak Prescott has high expectations for his seventh season with the Dallas Cowboys.
"It will be the golden birthday," said Prescott, who turned 29 on Friday. "I plan for this to be the golden year."
Mike McCarthy, who coached two Super Bowl-winning quarterback in Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, believes Prescott has the traits to win it all.
"This is Dak Prescott's offense and I think you see him taking ownership of that because at the end of the day, defense wins championships, but the Super Bowl is won by the quarterback. If you look at it statistically, that's my opinion," McCarthy said.
"That's how I view the journey and the vision of how you prepare your team and what your team needs to look like. And I think he's a guy that emulates exactly what you're looking for, because he's always looking to improve in all the areas."
Prescott has one playoff victory in six seasons as the Cowboys' starter.
