There are many reasons to be upset about the way the Dallas Cowboys’ 2021 season panned out. However, many are pointing to quarterback Dak Prescott. From his inconsistency throughout the season to his questionable choices at the end of the Wild Card loss, many in the media were quick to point the finger at Prescott.

On Sunday, Prescott’s brother Tad decided to take to Twitter to express his frustrations after the Green Bay Packers (a Super Bowl favorite) lost to the San Francisco 49ers just one week after the Cowboys’ season ended.

Tad was not shy with his words. He feels that it’s unfair that both Aaron Rodgers and his brother lost at home to the Niners and had similar stats, yet Rodgers is continually called a “GOAT” and Dak is constantly questioned.

While it’s true that Rodgers’ stats against the 49ers weren’t his best, it feels a little bit outlandish to compare the stats of one game to prove a point. Rodgers has led an MVP-caliber career for many years. Apparently, Tad didn’t care. He wanted answers.

Dak Prescott’s brother Tad sends out bold tweets comparing the Cowboys’ QB to Aaron Rodgers.

At first blush, it seemed incredibly bold to compare a quarterback who was accused of a slump to a guy who has led the MVP race for most of the season. But after looking into it, some of the stats are surprisingly similar between the two.

Prescott and Rodgers are tied with 37 passing touchdowns and Prescott actually had more passing yards (4,449) than the Packer (4,115). However, Rodgers has fewer interceptions (4 vs 11) and a higher PFF grade (90.0 vs 83.8). It is also worth noting that Dallas’ schedule was arguably much easier than the one Green Bay had.

Another point that Tad brought up is how many years Rodgers has played in the NFL. Prescott’s brother seems to feel that fans and the media aren’t giving Prescott enough time to achieve his greatness, as opposed to the way Rodgers’ career began.

Of course, Rodgers’ first few seasons were spent waiting behind Brett Favre, whereas Prescott was thrown into action thanks to Tony Romo’s injury before a similar foundation could be laid.

Do you think Tad is out of line for these tweets? It’s no surprise that he would defend his brother, but is there a true media bias here?
