    I want nothing to do with Flacco. The guy stopped caring years ago. I'd go with Rush first or the rookie.

    Here is list of still available QBs:

    Matt Moore
    Kyle Sloter
    Josh McCown
    Mike Glennon
    Sam Bradford

    I think Dallas is making a massive massive mistake by not properly addressing back-up QB. Dak could barely throw the ball in Eagles game last year and it was later revealed he has chronic shoulder injury dating back to college. Who ever felt they saw enough from Cooper Rush to throw 2 million at him for extension needs to be examined. Cooper Rush is not NFL QB in any capacity. Its almost criminal with all assets on offensive side of ball to not have back up plan if Dak gets hurt or holds out.

    I would take Dalton over the others but I don’t see us going with any of them. Cam wouldn’t accept a backup role and he’s lost his last 8 starts. Joe Flacco’s game is in the toilet.

    This is all just a bunch of nonsense, The Cowboys 2020 QB room is complete. All they need is the vet, the understudy, and the project. That's exactly what they already have.

    Cam. He's mobile and can throw outside of the pocket.

    its funny people forget the player s makes the choice LOL its not like Dallas says look we could have all 3 lets pick one..

    NO got lucky to have Winston WANT TO GO to No badly enough to take huge discount to be the backup with like 4 options..thats crazy putting your ego aside..

    which vet out there is will to do what Winston did and comes here..tha the real question..Dalls doesnt just have clout to get anyone they want for whatever.. see the ET fail etc

    In my wildest dream.

    I could not see any of these guys being signed.

    Aikman never had anybody who would threaten him.

    Same with Romo.

    So that shows me Flacco and Cam are out primarily because hey have either won or made a SB before.

    Dalton is just not a fit as his style would not really fit I don't believe.

    Then again, Big Mike was hired primarily BECUZ he has won a SB.

    So it's all just confusing as heck with Jerrah.

    What else is new really?

    Dalton is not cheap. There is reported interest in him by a couple of teams, one of them being the Patriots. I think the reason we usually don’t have good back-ups is because they view it as a position to save money. He would be awesome as a backup though.

    I like a running QB for a backup. Brings something extra to the table that works in the absence of starter snaps.

    Flacco has the Super Bowl ring but his expiration date has come and gone. If Cam failed here it could get ugly. I much prefer Dalton here.

    Talent wise Cam with no question. But Dalton would probably humbly accept the role.

    Cam still thinks of himself as a starter, whereas unless Andy goes to Jacksonville all the starting QB positions are spoken for.

    Cam is one of my favorite all time QBs, but Andy Dalton is the right choice at this time. Dalton could perform very well with the weapons and coaches DAL has.

    Cam has some accuracy issues and holds on to the ball a tick too long, but I'd be happy if they got him.

    At this point, just get some veteran who can steer the ship if Dak goes down. Somebody, somewhere mentioned Matt Moore...yes he qualifies, so it doesn't have to be splashy, just solid/adequate.
