Legendary NFL coach Tony Dungy had a terrible take on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott getting hurt.

Prescott fractured his right ankle Sunday against the Giants, and his season with the Cowboys is officially cooked. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

While we’re all pulling for his recovery, Dungy thinks a new window of opportunity might be here for the Cowboys.

Following the terrible injury, Dungy said it “might be a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys” because they can get back to focusing on running the football.

You can watch his comments below.

I understand the point that Dungy was trying to make, but you don’t always have to say every single thing that you’re thinking.

If there ever was a time to keep this opinion to himself, it was when he was on TV for the world to hear.

Prescott shattered his ankle, and Dungy is looking at how this could change the game plan for the better.

Next time, let’s give it a few days before talking about an increase in the running game and Andy Dalton’s role.
