    That Dak run on 3rd and 14 begs to differ with you.

    Go through my past messages.. I've despised Dak.

    But he is really improving. A lot. Sure, he's still inaccurate at time (and probably always will be).

    He has that magical lightbulb in crunch time. I don't pretend to understand it, but it's there. Sure, it takes other guys too, but Dak is leading the charge

    So that means they aren’t capable of losing those games? More games played should mean he has the most losses too right?

    Right, those we're all on Romo, even the ones that bounced off the receiver.

    It's survivor bias. Everyone remembers Prescott's clutch moments because it fits their narrative of him.

    He wasn't so clutch when down by three to Redskins with under 5 minutes when he fumbled and the Redskins scored.

    Cowboys lost 6 games this season. 4 of them by 8 points or less.

    Amazing that this fan base can't seem to understand this conclusion. For some reason it's either one or the other. Let's "repeat" your very poignant statement. No reason we can't pull for Dak and not bash Tony. It's not that hard to understand is it? Let's stop trying to attack, divide and act like ignorant fans. Frankly, it's getting embarrassing.

    Honestly, Brown seemed to be moving a bit slowly, but IIRC, Dak had enough time to avoid the penalty.

    So you don't think it was a terrible pass?

    Here is the link - tell me how great of a pass it was:

    https://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2019010501/2018/POST1/seahawks@cowboys

    Cause I can find the pass that was so late to the outside that should have been a pick 6 with no interference at all if we want to play the if game!

    Of course, it depends on the team around the QB as well. That's by far the #1 factor.

    Dak is clutch. That is one of the highest compliments you can give a player. The only thing better is Champion.

    Noah Brown was hit before the ball got to him! Even then, it hit him on his right upper chest area. Had he not gotten interfered before the ball got to him, it would have hit him right between the numbers.

    And how many times was Romo about to be pounded by a DL?

    It's funny how Dak screws up and it's everyone else's fault, but Romo gets called a choker.

    How about, as has been said, we recognize that it's okay to like both players?

    I won't pretend to say that Dak is my favorite. I've given him a lot of grief this season. I don't think he's necessarily elite at anything and am not his biggest fan BUT anyone who can't admit that he's prime time/clutch player just isn't watching this guy. He's the guy you don't want to have a 8 foot putt to beat you. He might not shoot the greatest round of the day but if his partner needs a birdie out of him on 18th then the other team better start sweating.

    I think one of the best ways to beat Dak is score TDs early and often. Get a 21 point lead on him going into the 3rd and I think you take away his best traits. Let him play in a 1 possession game and you are in a lot of trouble. If I'm the Rams I'm doing everything I can to make sure this game doesn't come down to the 4th quarter because if it does I think it heavily favors Dak and the Boys. Dak might not have elite skills at the QB position but when this team needs a big drive late in the game he has proved time and time again he's as elite as it gets.

    One could also make the argument that by the 4Q the defense is getting tired from all the 3 and outs through the first 3Q...........

    That's a big part of what was going on in 2017.

    Yes it would have, because he stopped and adjusted. It wasn't a terrible pass, but it could have been better.

    It hit him in the upper shoulder pad after he slowed down to get back to it. Don't be obtuse!

    I like both players. Just didn't like when Romo went Hollywood because of Jessica Simpson, but he's the one who chose and listened to her. By the time he was more focused, his body was already breaking down. Ugh.

    I have seen the highlight - it was a terrible pass - period. Terrible passes have consequences!
