NBC Analyst Tony Dungy Calls Dak Prescott’s Horrific Ankle Break ‘Blessing In Disguise’

NBC football analyst Tony Dungy is taking heat for calling Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury “a blessing in disguise” for the team.

Here’s the play. (Be warned: It’s tough to watch.)

“As tough as this is for Dak Prescott, it might be a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys,” Dungy, a former NFL head coach, said. “They’ve got a good veteran quarterback (backup Andy Dalton) who can make some plays, and this might cause them to get back to their old formula.”. 

Dungy later tried to explain his remarks on Twitter. “Blessing in disguise was a poor choice of words by me,” he wrote. “It’s not a blessing for Dak. What I meant is that for the Cowboys the season is not over.”
