I've been watching the cowboys for 36 years and know enough to see Dak is not a top 15 QB in this league.
I have tried to be supportive of him because he is the QB of the Cowboys and if he doesn't work it will put this team back another five years.
Just flinging out snide comments won't hide the obvious fact that we have a QB who at best will be mediocre.
I expect more from this team than medioce.
He's actually pretty close to 15. At that point, it's splitting hairs to decide who's better.

Blanket statement also won't hide the fact that we still don't know. I thought I was done w/ Dak, and then JAX. I do not know what to think about Dak right now.

And also, my comment was strictly related to putting all of the blame on Dak. That is what Streety's comment was saying. My snide comment points strictly to those who can't see past the QB and put all the blame on him no matter what. If you see other issues besides QB, then my comment was not pointed toward you at all.

Typically its the opposite.
Don't see it that way. NFL fans are typically QB obsessed. W/ all teams, not just us. If something goes wrong, they blame the guy they see, the one that is most overt. They blamed Dandy when our D was pretty much a hole and our OL was awful. They blamed David Carr in Houston even after he set the sack record w/ like 78. And obversely, Eli got the credit even though Tuck and the Dline held one of the most prolific O's of all time to a paltry 14 pts.

Most fans are more on the casual side. They blame the most obvious guy. And it's generally the QB. Why do you think it's the opposite? Just curious.

Really? Terrible?

He started in 2005 and had a QB rating of 95.1, followed by 97, 91, 97, 94, 102, 90, 96, 113.
Yes. His game plan was based on extending the play until someone broke open. His D reading came on slowly and became pretty decent around 09, when he became less of a gun slinger and more of a QB.

I agree that casual fans will blame the QB. That's not what you said though.

Sure it is.

We have multiple problems on O. Dak is definitely part of that. However, I was referring to those who cannot comprehend that it is not "ALL" on him. There are many who think it's Dak, period, even though it's plain that there are other issues.

The post I was responding to was pointing out other issues and saying it's not all on Dak.

How on earth are we going to sign a QB after trading away our no1 pick. I look forward to your suggestion.Perhaps we can trade away the 20 and 21st round picks to move up the draft or blow our hard earned cap savings on a journeyman, because i can't see a QB worth anything being available in FA.
Dak as has been quoted on this forum has had over 3 secs on average to pass this season, more than enough time in the NFL to read a defence and make a decision. He missed at least four throws against the Commanders with relatively clean pockets. The OL didn't play great on sunday but they were not the road crash you make them out to be. If we had a passing game of any consistancy the opportunities to run the ball would consurmately increase. Defenses just don't fear Dak, players are openly stating this. Smoot said the same thing before the game on Sunday, even going back to Denver last year the gameplan to beat was being openly stated. Teams are formulating a game plan to take zeke out and let Prescott beat them. Dak dithers in the pocket and protection breaks down. Well before the OL blame game it was the WRs not getting separation that was the problem -now he has a No1 so lets see how that works.
You state it is a team problem and to a certain extent this true, but without a QB who can read defenses and make throws the whole Offence becomes predictable, pedestrian and in a NFL that has become a pass dominated league pointless.
You obviously didn't watch the game sober. I get that you want to get rid of Prescott. But you're way off on the O line. It's actually strange you don't think it was a trainwreck.
4 sacks, 9 hits doesn't illustrate a clean pocket - it's a ******* mess.
Neither does 33 yards rushing. You're way off.

You seem to take issue with factual events and claim they are excuses, but either way - they happened. But you don't have a problem excusing the **** run game and O line and blame it on Prescott.

Your agenda is clear.

Romo didn't take a single snap in . Sit down

And, Romo himself said he wasn't very accurate or a great thrower early on. It took time to develop.

O-Line has to tighten up. Dak has to get the ball out. And the OC has to call some descent plays to help us move the ball. Not plays that take 5 seconds to develope.
