Yeah it can be difficult.. maybe impossible to isolate a player from the other 52 guys on the roster. But nobody thought that Matthew Stafford "stinks" despite only having 3 winning seasons in 12 years in Detroit did they? Well maybe some people did but most recognize he was a good QB in a bad situation. Just like some people saw Goff having success with McVay holding the training wheels and declared he was better than Dak. Many of us maintained from the jump that this was simply not true.. and it has proven out over time. As hard as it is for some people to accept, Dak has stepped into that rarified air among QBs where you'd have to think long and hard about who you would trade him for straight up. Coming into 2020 there were maybe 9 or 10.. By game 4 or 5 last year it was maybe 4-5 ... At this point.. I would struggle to get past 2 or 3. And not one of them would be a no brainer.. Dak offers us a promise of maybe 10 more years of this level of QB play. Maybe more.. Anybody I'm trading him for would have to be playing at least as well as he is (not a lot of guys on that list) and be able to either a) all but guarantee me a date in the Super Bowl or b) be around playing at this level for at least 5 more years. That's a really really short list.
Exactly why did he not just elevate JAGS then...(Stafford), As i have said before some will give evryone on the team credit before Dak gets any and they will not change thier minds no matter what happens...Some have actually come out and given him credit...Again this whole offense looks good and to me they are all important, but the biggest loss would be the QB if it happened and its not close.
