Confused about stuff

Right, we could be one of other NFCE teams.My emotions like so many fans are running high right now so I'm not thinking rationally but last night almost cost me a TV as my foot was so close to going through the screen.
I've been a fan of Dak since 2016 and felt his leadership skills being "off the charts" as well as "pretty good skillset /quite a bit better than average / maybe top 10 QB" were more than enough to steer us to a shot at the big one.
I have to say though that I voted no...........it took me a while to press the button but I did it. I don't feel too good about it but I'm trying to be rational.
Dak was not the reason we lost last night but he was a contributor. The opportunity was there for him to carry the team and pick apart a frankly poor 49ers secondary but it never happened. I'm kinda in the "if it's not going to happen by year 6.........." camp.
The fact remains, we are stuck with the position we are in so there's no out, no trade, no draft pick that will make us better next year than this year and we just need to ride with Dak.......until we don't. The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result but that's where I'm at - watch Dak lead us for the next 3 or 4 years and see if it changes.
He's not a bad QB, I really don't like fans who push that narrative but I did reach the tipping point last night to conclude we will not be able to string 3 or 4 playoff games together with good QB play from Dak.
I feel so low right now, like I've lost a limb or something. The loss to the Rams a couple of years back was worse statistically and we were still growing as a team but last night just felt like "now we know what we are". On top of it, we aren't in a position to change things for a while. That contract is the biggest set of golden handcuffs.
I think we are going to have to enjoy regular season success with a few 40 and 50 burgers sprinkled in again NFC East teams to entertain us in the next few years - it could be worse........
