How has he been lights out when he has been compared to the likes of Tim Tebow this season? If you’re being compared to Tim Tebow, you’re not playing “lights out” unless you mean turning the TV and lights off to go to bed after watching his abysmal performances.

There was two that I can remember of those that appeared to be Lamb not coming across the face of the safety. Another one was Shultz not going deep enough on his route to clear out the underneath.

Where are you getting 4 the fault of Lamb?

I was putting the last one against the Giants on Lamb.. Not so much that it was his fault but for his not fighting through the contact and making sure if he didn't get it nobody would. I know he was interfered with but that's going to happen. He was interfered with on the sideline catch but still game down with it. He needs to do more of that. I don't care if he has to commit PI himself and pull the DB down by the shoulder pads like Irvin did to Woodson in the Super Bowl. He needs to develop that "this f-in ball is mine or nobody's" mentality. Right now he's just a little too passive.. but he's young.. There is time to fix it.

He's just fed up with all the haters and trolls. I don't blame him. One thing to criticize, but to be so obsessed with it is pretty comical.
Too much hate on Dak for sure.
Probably too many knee-pad pumping threads about him as well, but it is a Cowboys fan site afterall.

The extremes are comical

I don't think he's listening to Michael Irvin, about fighting for that ball.....but I did see him get in the te azz about that bad route.


Go through! He said. Clear out!.

I think Dak shouldn't have thrown it.....but nice to see some leadership azz chewing there by CD that I do not see from Dak.

Dak is not their parent he’s their teammate.

No argument here.. but if nothing else Dak has shown a willingness to put the ball up there and let CD try and make a play almost regardless of coverage. That's a huge departure from past years as you know. It's going to lead to more INTs but hopefully it will also lead to a lot more big plays and TDs too. The real issue is that CD hasn't grown into his man strength yet. He can still be manhandled by corners if they get hands on him. Maybe he stays wiry his entire career but I'm hoping just natural physical maturing puts 10 pounds on him over the next few years and he is better equipped to fight through.

that’s hater logic

lamb is a complete stud. Anyone that has doubted him is being proven wrong.

not really only what 6-7 from each side with qualify for the payoffs so a lot less then 30 my may. Some teams already looking at next years draft LOL

so its true for like 12 teams.

Correct! I should’ve said at the start of each season about 30 teams are hoping to have a balance offense.

It doesnt matter until he wins in the playoffs
"he"??

you seem to have spelled TEAM wrong..

Maybe reduce those 14 penalties and no run game(OL was terible) , poor gameplans, slow the run game a bit better, and what not and maybe the TEAM can win in the playoffs.

Some say our run defense played a huge role in losing our last two playoff games. But yes Dak could be better also.
run defense PISS POOR OL pay, no run game bad game plannig..right Dak should overcome 14 penalties and win without run game and playing behind the chains all game which the game was shortened by the D giving up 4 straight scores to open the game and couldn't slow the run enough IE allowed SF to own the TOP.

sure, Its daks fault as usual.

Some think Dak makes 40 million...he should be Superman out there. If he can't play like Superman, it's his fault. SMH.

So an opinion tweet by a dallas fan is supposed to mean Dak is playing elite? LOL okay
The Cowboys' offense will go as far as the run game takes them, and Dak will benefit from the success of the run game by being able to sit calmly in the pocket and choose his targets.
And maybe that's the way it should be.
But if the Cowboys have to depend on Dak to be the difference maker in a game, he will struggle and the offense will grind to a halt like always. He's not the guy that can win a game if he has to by throwing.
I do know that it's been refreshing to see the running backs finally used the way they are supposed to be used. It takes a lot of pressure off of the quarterback.
The difference now is that Dak is being used as compliment to the offense instead of him having to carry it. He can't do that.
Make no mistake- Pollard, Zeke, and the offensive line are the fuel for the offense.

ok, I am a liar. o_O is that what you are trying to prove, working so hard with all your comments. what's your angle
My "angle" is for people show what they are talking about. Burden of proof is on the claimer....be on the same page. Your perception of "hate" appears to be different than mine and I wanted to understand exactly what you are talking about.

Giving some modest stats to show Dak didn;t single-handedly beat 'sota? Isn't "hating". Giving ZERO credit...might be.

I ask another forum members to give me examples of me hating dak. Should be easy, right? Should be a few things easily identifiable in my small-ish history collection. Nothing but a bunch of foolish gibberish, like a child.

No...not just gonna take your word for it. The hate accusation is a pretty harsh badge.

No...not just picking on you....I ask to substantiate all types of claims...with a quote, some stats. I would expect the same treatment. Even if one were to say "just my opinion" or "my eye test"...I'd be like well (shrug) okay then. Just an opinion...fine.

No "angle".

Agreed but history shows that Dak's ego can't allow anyone on the offense to be the reason for success other than himself.

True.
But if he tries to make it about him this time, it will come back on him hard.
The run game has been lights out. Dak has not.
