    he is smart when it comes to his image, and saying the right things.
    I think that maybe he is smarter at the podium, than he is on the field.

    If we analyze our coaches this era since our 90’s Dynasty who had the best results ? Gailey, Campo, Parcells, Phillips or Garrett?

    Id argue Garrett stood up quite well against much more proven coaches . Not bad for someone who shouldn’t have been HC.

    Fans just got more frustrated cause he was here longer than them which wasnt his fault.

    Yea, for some reason I didn’t see most of Daks normal defenders discussing the contract no deal after the deadline.

    While most were defending the Cowboys standing firm I was arguing on Daks behalf.

    So, you are willing to wager Dak will take less than the 37.7 million tag he will receive next year? There is a risk pending our success. It’s a risk I’m willing to take. I stand by my opinions. Right or wrong.

    I think we might could have signed him for less this year. And why I was so critical of our organization not getting it done for its most likely going to cost more next year. I feel very confident barring some very unusual events like an injury or canceled season.

    I agree.

    I wanted to make a similar point before but would just be labelled as a Prescott hater which is a lazy and idiotic tag really when someone is expressing an observation.

    Prescott is constantly praised for saying all the right bits and pieces but the reality is that he just speaks in generic terms, almost like a textbook. From a reporter's perspective he's pointless talking to as the above poster highlights, there are two Prescott's and the real one doesn't speak to the media.

    Arguably similarly repressive tendancies are reflected in his play as well.

    His image to the media is fake as mentioned above but people lap it up. I remember from the All or Nothing series when we actually watched behind the scenes footage - his behaviour was that of a company man. I didn't see this great leader that some people bang on about. He was a yes man who sucked up.

    I see similar traits first hand in some men who are completely different people with friends than they are with their partner.

    It must be hard to constantly lay on an act for so long.

    Yep.

    I think most of us believed he was drastically underpaid right after his rookie season.

    But no way they would redo his deal that soon.

    I have been surprised it has taken so long, though.

    DAKs brothers death had to have been soul shaking considering how close all were to the mom.

    It's changed Dak inside no doubt.

    That's what you say when you want to keep fan interest and not be a distraction. But I interpret his contract *actions* as not having much expectation that he'll stay with the Cowboys.

    With the expectation of the cap going *down*, seems weird for him not to take the offer on the table.

    I'll give you the first. The second just doesn't seem to be a big priority for him.

    Guaranteed money is all that matters, which was below market value including lower then Tannehill and I gave you the answers because they weren't hard questions but dumb and incorrect questions not including number 3. Research how many were at the party, its public information and wasn't a large party like you suggest

    Yep , Dak says all of the right things. Until it’s time to sign on the dotted line which is still going to take a leap of faith at some point for the Cowboys. Dak won round 1 IMO. He’s only going to need more next year to sign.

    Like much of the media and local beat writers I’d agree Cowboys have mishandled or at least mismanaged resigning him. Assuming our organization has been honest they are “ All In” he’s their guy.

    Yea , attempting to characterize someone who offers criticism as a “ hater” is just a lazy attempt to discredit their message.

    I’m beginning to wonder this as well. We will see next year. But one more year on the Tag and he’s gone.

    Otherwise Cowboys will have to belly up and pay Dak even more. And why they have been widely criticized for not stepping up this year.

    I think *not* signing will pay off for the Cowboys. Dak should have signed. I expect free agent prices to go *down*.

    Next year will see a huge fall in available money for free agency. Cap goes down. That alone would shrink back contracts, but existing contracts assumed that it was going up, and that provides an extra squeeze relative to the lower cap number.

    A lot less free agent money, chasing a probable avalanche of players cut for having too high a cap hit relative to the lowered cap.

    Sounds like a total buyers market.

    Well, Dakster, we will know if you are for real when we see who your agent is next time around.
