So much anger and hatred.
This is not healthy. Seek help.
We’ll, this thread went south
So Mahommes didn't slump early for a 5-6 week period?.....I dont know, did not see those games. if you didnt see them either, then you dont know.
you cant go by stats. KC lost some games early, but they are team losses are they not?
in fact what romo said was early on KC game plans were for big plays, and it didnt work as teams learned from TB how to defend them.
then they finally adjusted to driving for scores, and they started winning.
I saw every cowboy game, so did you, so we see how dak plays.
if you watch the games, you can get a idea of what the game plan was.
I think game plans and play calling both affect how dak plays and looks to some extent. Kellen hasnt done him any favors.
But some things are daks fault, and after 5 years he should be better than he is.
that is true, I was thinking about that.
If rodgers retires or leaves GB they wont be a contender. NO lost peyton, and brees, TB lost brady AB and probably Gronk. also their OC.
Arrians will be exposed now for what he is.
ONly the rams, SF , Arizona, and possibly seahawks are in the way of dallas.
So it is a good time, but jerry kept his coaches, will extend a loser like gregory, wont do anything in FA, and dak is struggling, elliot is not that good,
so dallas will blow this window more than likely.
It is possible they get past div round though.
Better than the 3rd highest rated passer in the league? Geez.. tough crowd. Look bro we all want Dak to be better. A lot of what I saw over the latter half of the season was a guy fighting himself.. not sure when to run.. not trusting his line, not trusting his body to take off, not trusting his own eyes looking at the defense. Better QBs than Dak have had stretched like that. Remember Rodgers during McCarthy's last season. Dude looked completely lost for long stretches. Go look at any game when Brady didn't get great protection. Look at what happened to Mahomes when they couldn't protect him. I'm not here to tell you Dak played great all season.. he didn't .. What I am telling you that these absolutes about his performance.. "He can not do this.." "He will never be that.." are just plain stupid. He has already exceeded what the "experts" said he could be in the NFL. To declare that he can't get any better? That's just people still clinging to the hope of being "right" about him.. when he's already proven all of them hopelessly wrong. Dak may not be the best QB in the NFL.. The good news is he doesn't have to be.. Plenty of guys not as good as he have won the Super Bowl.. when they have had good enough teammates. Oh and non-idiot coaches. Dak has work to do this offseason.. I am anxious to see what he does with it.
And every team is only as good as it's weakest link......unfortunately our weakest link is at the QB position....wouldn't be so bad if he was paid like he plays but if you want top 3 money and then get it, you need to win when it counts
Zeke ran 12 times for 31 yards vs the 49ers and the team committed FOURTEEN penalties.... but Dak was the weak link???
Don’t hurt yourself trying to understand this sport.
I dont know why u quoted me, and then ramble on about dak.
All I said about him was this
But some things are daks fault, and after 5 years he should be better than he is....... both are true.
you and I both bashed the coaches, yet dak just said he likes them lol !!!!! What does that say to u about dak?
As usual this supports Dak is more in the middle. He’s not as great as the homers think or as bad as the haters think.
Dak supporting his coaches says he's a good soldier who isn't going to throw his coaches under the bus publicly. + Just like his saying he was 100% physically when all of us could see that his body wasn't right after the calf injury was him being a good soldier. He's not wired that way.. at least not yet. He is not the first QB to believe in his coaches even as the coaches showed themselves to be less than great. Anybody remember all the press conferences where Romo threw Garrett under the bus? Yeah, me neither. Do any us of really want Dak making the talk show rounds demanding that Moore and/or McCarthy be shown the door? People complain about this thing being a circus now.. Can you imagine how that would play out? Whatever is wrong with the offense we need everybody to go into the lab and fix it. Though frankly the #1 thing they need to do is fix the o-line and most of the other problems go away. But there are other issues.. and some of them fall on Dak.. His issues are the ones I worry about the least.. because I KNOW he will put in the work to fix them. And eventually he will do to Moore what Romo did to Garrett. He will go no huddle and call his own plays more and more. As long as he stays healthy I expect the Dak from the first half of the season to be Dak all year. If he is able to give us that level of play all season then I will be satisfied with HIS portion. Now if only the rest of the team could join him playing at a top 5 level.. Then we got somethin.
I don't know that anyone here thinks he is "great." I certainly don't. However if he had stayed on the trajectory he was on before the injury it would have been really hard not to call him that. But true greatness must be shown over time and in the playoffs. He has had one great playoff game, two okay playoff games and one pretty crappy one. That is not greatness. He's got work to do. I believe he will do it. I get that people are impatient for the Cowboys to return to glory and Dak being great is the quickest path to get us there. But he had nothing to do with most of these frustrating years.. We can't pile all that frustration on him. At least I can't.
So after all this he is top 10.. Lol. Now that brady retired he moved up 1 space..
If opposing teams had any fear of our QB being able to beat them, Zeke and our running game would see many many more holes to run thru. There is not a DC in the league who game plans to stop Dak, but they do game plan to stop Zeke. Rams ran for 43 yards on 23 carries in the SuperBowl 1.9 yards per carry (Akers 1.6 and Henderson 1.8), that's less yards per carry than Zeke's 2.58 YPC against the 49ers......with such a feeble rushing attack during the game Stafford still found a way to put the team on his back for that last drive to win the game...what did Dak do on his last drive?
It's not me who doesn't understand the game my friend...one quick question though..what colour are your Dak pajamas?
NFL teams have zero respect for Dak Prescott.
Honestly, 10-15 isn’t the worst position to be in for a QB if we had a good team… but we don’t. Hell, the 49ers made it to the Super Bowl a few years back with Jimmy LOL.
But the current 9th place ranking sounds about right for Dak. He had a very good first half of the season, then stumbled after the injury (some of it was physical, most of it seemed mental).
Jags, Giants, Texans, Lions and Bears, who were (excluding the Rams' win over them) were a combined 20-59.
So Stafford should thank all those dog teams he faced as well...
and you can dump a ton of money on fancy wheels, paint job, leather interior, on a Chevy Nova, but your never turning that Nova into a Vette.
Yes, because using the QB that led his team to a Super Bowl Championship this season is a great example for your defense of Dak
Credibility was lost long time ago, well before that statement.
I believe Dak will be passed up by Mac Jones, Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, and Derek Carr on this list after next season. There might even be some surprise guys that take off next season, so it might even be lower.
I see us losing Cooper. I see the O-Line being another year older and more wear and tear. I see the same with Zeke. So, we're only going to get worse on offense because of those reasons while also not being able to afford top talent.
So, I could see Dak easily being 14-18 by the end of next season.
