    I was under the assumption that edits were not allowed after someone responds to a post. I was unaware there was time limit. But hey, it still lives in my quote.

    Dak led his team to 8-8. If you’re going to take all the credit for your team’s accomplishments, you need to accept the blame too.

    Ah, the classic "they started it" defense

    I haven't mentioned Romo in comparison to Dak in eons. You're the one who looks like an anal orifice here

    All you've proven is that Dak's merits aren't self sufficient. The only way you can make Dak resemble a competent quarterback is to tear down Romo and try to bring him down to Dak's level

    No wonder you are so pissed off and defensive LOL

    At least I admit it. You do the same thing. You admit you don’t like Dak and I think we both know that stemmed from 2016. I just wonder why so many people lie about why they have the biases they do as if they think people actually believe them.

    So, is there a case for Dak in there somewhere?

    Care to share it with us?

    I'm not going to talk about something that happened 4 years ago because it doesn't help the Cowboys now

    Is Dak the Cowboys *only* liability?
    No. But he's a bigger liability than many can bring themselves to admit. If his salary goes to $35+ million a year, at that point he becomes a gargantuan liability

    That's what I'm interested in discussing. And that's all I'll discuss.

    If you're looking to do your normal baloney and stir up a Romo fight you're barking up the wrong tree. Period. End of story

    sure, whatever

    Dak should not even be in the same conversation as Mahomes or Brees etc

    Maybe Dak should get good enough that his team is up 20 and then he too can rack up those “garbage time” stats , LOL :facepalm:

    At $35 million, Dak’s play would deserve criticism. At $4 million over 4 years, it didn’t deserve 90% of the criticism he got. I find it laughable people who hated him from day 1 are now trying to change the narrative to make it seem like Dak’s big pay day is the problem they have with him. Although, I agree it would become a problem, I won’t entertain that reason from people who hated him on his rookie deal. You should just leave his salary out if it and continue bashing every pass that is a few inches off and dropped by the receiver.

    Many (myself included) have consistently said they're not sold on Dak. From day 1

    If his salary goes to 20 times what he made this year, that's even a stronger argument for our position. Mentioning it is not only "not hypocritical", it's perfectly logical and consistent

    By the way, any Dak defense forthcoming? Or just a progression of condemnation from Romo, to Romo adherents, to Dak critics? Can't wait to see what awaits. :laugh:

    I'm more positive on Dak than you. This thread wasnt meant to be a Dak-is-best thread, but rather a thread to point out that he earned 4900 yards, some garbage some not, and every QB has some garbage yardage by season's end.

    It's just disheartening that Dak almost set a franchise record and only gets hate for it because people dont like the 8-8 record. Dak had a good statistical year and many of the 8 losses are due to two garbage phases of the game: defense and special teams.

    Idk what he will get paid or what he is worth. I just know that I think he had a solid year 4. I also know that I place so much blame on JG that I cant really judge Dak fairly. If a driver sucks, it's hard to tell if the racecar has issues or just the driver.

    Our team is loaded with skill position and O line talent. And he threw a ton of passes this year. He should have thrown for a lot of yards. My biggest beef with him is the fact that he still has trouble consistently making routine passes that a four-year NFL starter should be able to make with no issue. Proper reads timing and location are a consistent issue. After 4 years that's not encouraging

    How'd he do against legit teams with actual an actual defence? He is a fraud...through and through.

    Wentz is over paid too! But Wentz biggest issue is staying healthy. He beat GB, Bears and Bill's. 3 teams Dallas couldn't handle. He even beat the Cowboys with Walk on WRs. His ceiling is much higher than Daks it's just his health that may prevent that.

    Regarding the amount of attempts, he was #6 in yards per attempt this year. That's respectable.

    Jameis Winston was #5 so again it's not like stats tell the whole story but I still have to give credit where it's due, and that means that at the end of the day Dak put up 4.9k in 2019, garbage or not.

    And the Cowboys beat Detroit and Miami, teams Philly couldn’t handle. Don past years there have been teams the Eagles handled that Dallas didn’t, or that Dallas handled that Philly didn’t. This year didn’t somehow become the standard. And, what about head to head? Wentz does not have a good record against the Cowboys.

    What about the fact that he shrunk in our biggest moments?
