Prescott, Elliott to make Debute on Sunday against NY Giants

NFL Dallas

The 2016-2017 NFL Season began last night. For most Texans it begins Sunday in Dallas, when the Cowboys host the Giants. With lots of new faces, here’s Silver Star Nation Cowboys Insider, Babe Laufenberg.

BABE LAUFENBERG/INSIDE SLANT:

“Hello everyone, I’m Babe Laufenberg with this week’s Inside Slant. Okay, how long has it been since the Cowboys started a rookie at quarterback and running back in the season opener? Can you say 1969? That was Roger Staubach and Calvin Hill. This Sunday it will be Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.”

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT/COWBOYS RUNNING BACK:

“I think we’re ready. I think we’re prepared. We’re both very composed. I think we’re excited to competed and excited to go out there and we don’t want any dropped balls. Just because anyone thinks we’re rookies, there aren’t going to be any dropped balls.”

DAK PRESCOTT/COWBOYS QUARTERBACK:

“Everything I’ve been through…the obstacles. To sit there and wait on draft day and to wait for it to come. And then it comes to the team you grew up watching. Just for everything the way it fell in place unfortunately with Tony and Kellen. But I’m prepared for it. I believe I’m supposed to be here.”

BABE LAUFENBERG/INSIDE SLANT:

“He’s supposed to be at AT&T Stadium this Sunday making his first NFL start. Now I was a teammate of Troy Aikman’s in 1989 when Troy made his first NFL start. It was against the New Orleans Saints. Troy got battered, beaten and shutout – 28-0. After the game I said if you’re looking for some good news here it is: I think you just saw every blitz the NFL has to offer. Dak Prescott may see more of the same. With this week’s Inside Slant at The Star in Frisco, I’m Babe Laufenberg.
