    Would you trade that for a late round draft pick? Jags would be crazy to get so little for a QB with starting experience and possible upside.

    Thats where Im at as well, if an equitable deal can be made than I want to see it happen.
    QB2 is a major weakness at the moment.

    People are posting out of their hopes. There's no way Minshew, with demonstrated NFL success, is going for some 6th or 7th rounder.

    As we gaze through the current group of available qb's, there is not one name that would produce a vote of confidence for the position. Outside of Driskell, names such as Mullens, Moore, & Griffin III are still floating out there looking for work.

    One could sit here & wonder if the Cowboys dropped the ball by not prioritizing the position sooner. o_O

    Read they are looking for a 5th or 6th a few days ago. Worth it to me for sure

    Not a fan of most of the FO roster decisions but I would support this one.

    A fifth or sixth and paying a million a year for off the bench insurance is better than where we are now.
    Of the rookies that started in 2019 Murray, Jones, and Minshew, Minshew had the highest rating, threw the fewest picks and won more games in less starts.
    Daniel Jones threw 24 TDs, Minshew 21, Murray 20.
    Murray had the highest completion percentage at 64.4%, Jones at 61.3% and Minshew 60.9%.
    Murray is the only one to play 16 games. Minshew and Jones played 12.

    Would I rent him for two years? Sure.

    No way do I give up any draft picks for a back up QB.

    Dak's ego couldn't handle it.

    Randall Cunningham wasn’t a bad backup QB either.

    Minshew is right in that Dalton-esque zone where he can play, but not well enough to start full time. Perfect backup / bridge QB material.

    I stand corrected, but in my defense I have a hard time recalling last week sometimes.

    This.... the Jags would do better to hold him and see who needs him as injuries pop.

    Judging by the way this FO is doing nothing so far, you seem likely to get your wish, unless they're waiting for a late acquisition. Waiting too long to acquire a good backup QB won't help their chances of readying one adequately, though. It needs to happen in time to properly prepare him. I'm not knocking GG, however. He might pleasantly surprise us, once again. Actually, I'd like nothing better than to see it happen. Whatever it takes to win. I'd also like to see Gilbert and Minshew compete in TC, with the best man getting the #2 spot. Would Stephen be willing to spend the extra $$ for that? Maybe not.

    dak is use to competition. not many rookie qbs could play so wel they keep a great quarterback like Tony Romo stuck on the sidelines.

    the problem with this team is too many guys get their “spot” and don’t feel they could lose it after.

    Seven teams in seven years and one NFL start. I've never seen a guy get so much love out of one career start, and he lost the game.

    Romo wasn't built in one day. Takes time. Some more than others.

    This reminds of a sign on Boston when the Big Dig was going on. The sign said “Rome wasn’t built in a day. If it was we would have hired their contractor.”
