Dak Prescott mocked by NFL fans for copying Eagles star Jalen Hurts

Dak Prescott is willing to try just about anything to get him closer to Super Bowl glory, and that includes changing up his signature look. The Dallas Cowboys star has showed off his new hairstyle, which immediately drew comparisons with another quarterback, Jalen Hurts, as fans mocked Prescott for copying him.

After the disappointment of crashing out in the playoffs to the Green Bay Packers, Prescott and his team-mates will be using the offseason to regroup under head coach Mike McCarthy to again in 2024-25.

The 28-year-old actually enjoyed a decent campaign for the Cowboys as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles to top spot in the NFC East division, but such a failure in the postseason will not be tolerated again after the Cowboys were tipped to get to the Super Bowl.

And so Prescott is starting the year with a different look, hoping to provide a change in their fortunes. However, he ran a little too close to his rival Hurts in creating his new hairstyle – and fans were quick to notice.

Prescott used to have a full, bushy beard to compliment his short buzz cut on top. But after a visit to the barbershop he swapped the beard for a trimmed goatee, which was almost identical to the Hurts’ facial hair Hurts.

One user claimed Prescott “wants to be Jalen Hurts so bad”, while another fan compared him to a certain Breaking Bad character, the TV series where the main protagonist, Walter White, has a prominent goatee.

Will Dak Prescott stay with the Cowboys

Prescott was one of the most efficient passers in the NFL last season, with 4,516 yards, 36 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 17 games in 2023.  It is no surprise then that the Cowboys are eager to keep him beyond his current contract, which expires at the end of the 2024-25 campaign.

Cowboys general manager Jerry Jones has acknowledged the QB will be around for at least the 2024 season, although he stopped short of guaranteeing a new deal will get signed.  “What we do there or don’t do [with Prescott’s contract], I couldn’t say at this time,” Jones said. “But the main thing is he’s going to be our quarterback.”
