    So he's saying that we can get rid of Dak by sacrificing a 1st? Let's go! put up or shut up time.

    I hafta say that his logic behind the entire scenario was well presented. If this was in fact the approach taken by this FO, I am somewhat skeptical. But I find truth in all that he said no matter if this was the FOs' line of thinking or not.

    Kinda like when I was taught the word hypothesis in science class back in 8th grade was an educated guess. The Cowboys are testing their science project hypothesis of a franchise in the making QB by supplying him with all the available resources for success. If there is failure, then they will have disproved their initial hypothesis and can comfortably move on without compounding the problem by over paying a non deserving player.

    But inst there a way of evaluating a QB without having to give up a 1st round pick?

    I share his perspective, but Jerry is not introspective enough to latch on to this kind of thinking.

    He mentioned all those winning teams adding pieces to already-very good teams, and then this franchise...

    Also LOL around 3:57 acting like this 3-4 team is stacked every position except WR.

    Completely agree with Cowherd and usually I don't but this time I do...its not rocket science. If Cooper was an older player (28+) I'd be hyper ticked off. We basically got our 2019 1st rounder this year who already has 3+ years experience, will just not be on a cheaper rookie deal long, we can afford him if he is good.

    I agree with you, but the way Cowherd so effectively presented this line of thinking is what swayed me. Not that this was in fact how our Front Office actually thinks.

    I agree with ya but also thought his justification rationale was pretty decent in comparing prospective 2019 WR draft options to Coopers already proven body of work and his youth.

    Before I watch this video, I'd like to state for the record: of the fistful of times I've spent watching & listen to him, it was considered time well spent,till I tuned in his op-ed spiel of the New England Tom Brady's win over K.C. here recently,,, er,,,and I've just convinced myself that what& however he's laying it down,,, ain't worth my time,,,catch y'all Later-on,gang.o_O

    They did. It failed.

    Now it’s last ditch effort to save Dak

    We may no longer have an elite LT. A lot hinges on that.

    Besides, Cowherd acts like this is a player without question marks. He hasn’t been an elite WR over the past 20 games.

    This is, as he says, an ‘aggressive’ move. We shouldn’t be trying to skate past the risk in it just because we’re dazzled by the potential reward.

    Cowherd's a fan base pandering moron. Continues to back Garrett as a "B" coach. Stop listening to him after that.

    If our window is now it’s pointless to draft a qb. That’s a project no matter how high of a ceiling the qbs prospect has. If Dak isn’t the option, I’d rather sign a qb(not like signing Tyrod Taylor or Sam Bradford) but a real qb if there’s one available and ride that ship.

    Like how Cowherd discusses at recess, the good lookin boy becomes the QB at the dry cleaners?
