"Troll like me"??? The immaturity is unnecessary but seems consistent with those that herald Dak.
Well than what are you? You only show up Dak critical threads that I see. You cant answer a simple question I just proposed to you

what else are we to believe ?

So posting stats is hatred? Get a life Wormser.
No posting bullshiet is hatred

Your anus is on fire today because of the win yesterday. You rather see Cowboys lose so you can complain about Dak and wag a finger saying I told you so....than see cowboys win with Dak.

Thatakes you a miserable miserable old old man. Just bitter and lonely

Put it like this, until dak can win in the playoffs,he will be judged poorly, regardless of his regular season stats,just like Romo was, unfairly as it may seem to some, winning in the playoffs is the measuring stick..for instance,I think Eli was very average but he won in the playoffs and sbs,Trent dilfer,Joe flacco..all very average SB winning QBs... until Dak can accomplish any playoff success, he'll be remembered as just another qb who played decent yet won nothing.
I’m ok with that just not consistent threads dissecting every throw the guy makes and blaming him for everything even when it may not apply
Even at the end I don’t remember Romo getting it this bad
Maybe a little over the top on the Denver game but it’s pretty extreme in here
Game threads can be unbearable

If it wasn't for this defense his record would be worse.

Dak is better than Rush because of how arm velocity not because his accuracy or vision.. This team should lean on the run to help Dak be more proficient.
Yet Dak's accuracy is world's above Rush...so not sure what to think of your Rush Crush

“Lights out” is hyperbole. He’s managed the game well and made plays when it mattered. He turned it over twice yesterday, but one of them should have been DPI.

Dak played well enough to win the game today in the second half. This was a day we were not going to win with the run game and defense. Those high passes are often dictated by the defense. The one to Ferguson was a result of making sure it was lobbed over the LB who was in the path. The high passes to Gallup were in tight coverage….I cannot say they were intentional or by accident (no one can), but I know the DB was on Gallup’s back and swatting as he tackled him. It those passes are on his numbers, they get swatted away. Don’t just look at where the pass is caught. Look at where the defender is. You also have to look at where the extra defenders who show up late are coming from on passes across the middle or sideline. Some passes that are thrown behind receivers and fans lament “if only he’d hit him in stride” don’t pay attention to the guys who run in, pulling up just as the guy is tackled. Often those passes are avoiding an INT or having your guy get blown up. Miscommunication between receiver and QB are similar…..the receiver is running against his defender and looking back for the ball. The receiver doesn’t always see other factors that the QB sees.

Dak played a great second half and controlled the game, but I have no idea why anyone would try to defend his first half or past games. The guy isn’t perfect. There’s no reason to defend him when he plays poorly or makes bad decisions, and there’s no reason to blast his entire career for it either.
As I am reading this thread....that was the thought I was developing. Started off something like "peopel said Dak can;t win big games/elite opponents" are wrong.

Welll say if people still have some small doubts...it's deserved/earned. If Dak wants that "elite" (or near enough anyway) label.....he's gonna have to go deeper into the playoffs and do these kinds of things THERE.

the scary part is that the Giants are supposed to be in rebuild mode AND had numerous injuries and are still very competitive
I like their coach a lot. It looks like he losses it on the sideline once in awhile, but he has the giants playing well.

Dak and Kellen have struggled with slow, sloppy, mediocre starts in many games over Dak’s career.

Happened again yesterday. Dak has led many furious second half scrambles to get back into games and has won many— but the issues of slow starts continue to hurt the team with inconsistency.

We should have beaten the NYG by 14+ points— but instead we were down at halftime, and two bad INTs and continuous penalty problems plagued us.

The good news is we have a very talented and capable team, and when they are on their game— they are elite. See Minnesota game.

But Dak and Kellen continue to struggle with first half execution and that can definitely be enough to beat you when you play quality teams— see SF playoff loss last year.

Had Jones been more effective with his opportunities yesterday, we could easily have lost that game. We need more consistent execution, gameplans, and playcalling from Dak/Kellen in order to truly take the next step


I think the idea of a 'fast start' is what prevents us from having them. Football is methodical and while I know it's exciting to exhibit the air attack we're really not built that way. Yet we consistently try to come out with it in hopes of a fast start. We need to start each game the same. Heavy run game pounding the defense into submission. Controlling t.o.p. Good, smart defense. That done with consistency will get us the wins but the starts wont be fast most times. Too many times we've seen trickery and other stuff when the basics are all thats needed. We're still winning so you can't knock it too much but I think the old school approach to the game still works and right now we're built for it.

Reminds me how hard some try to elevate Dak for average performances while also placing blame on everyone but Dak in losses.
Now you're making things up in an attempt to deflect & change the argument.
I've never left Dak out of blame, so stop the nonsense, I don't care.

But if he played well and the team won, they deserve accolades and content.
Go away if that gets you in the feels. Stop ruining anything positive. It's a choice.

Dak is not above scrutiny - no player is. But, he came through when it mattered. Just needs to win the big games when it matters. So does the whole team.
Not sure whose fault it was on the two interceptions. I dislike the throws over the middle in heavy traffic. They just can't seem to pull it off.

Bit of advice.... when people come around and talk trash about players after losses BUT hide and don't come around after wins.... those people are childish cowards, period. That's not stereotyping or name calling, that's called identifying who and what they are based off of their actions.

I got great dialogue with smart and intelligent fans here and some support our players, some don't. Atleast they are man and woman enough to give credit at times where credit's due. Whether we agree or disagree, I respect those posters. I could care less who chooses not to have dialogue with me. My life is still going to be great lol!!

But I do not respect posters who hide when we win and lie on players without producing facts/statistics or links to back up their baseless arguments. It's childish for those cowards to do those things.

Then go talk to Rock as that is what he does.

That you are childish Dak lovers who get butthurt when anyone is critical of your messiah.....but then again that isn't a professional diagnosis but merely an observation.

Lol still can’t answer a question that would force ya to say something positive

that would be hatin and that would qualify you as a troll but that isn’t a professional diagnosis but merely an “ OBSERVATION”

Must be painful for you when the team wins and he gets player of the game :laugh::laugh:

I'd blame all involved with most INTs. And you're right, they corrected things and came through.

I think his best game ever was against the 8-1 Vikings. More on that in a minute,

I think the critics of him in the SF game and then Bucs game to start the season were off. “Can’t win against good teams”

I think the Bucs was a lack of preseason practice. I think the SF game was that he knew cee dee was a poor route runner (he rarely targeted one on one matchups) and didn’t want to lose the game on turn overs early. Dak does not like poor route runners. CeeDee has improved late this year, but last year, he was a bit of a liability. Plus, Dak and Zeke were banged up late last year.

Back to the Vikes. So he he plays a highly successful team in the Vikings and carves them up. He follows up with a very good game against a 7 win NYG team. He is beating good teams.

QB1 has been great.

Dak is best when he plays within the game plan and doesn’t believe he is better than he is. Period.

He’s top 10. Sometimes top 5.

He is just below elite.
