    If Dak is saying this, let him walk. I'd rather go 7-9 and with Alex Smith instead of 8-8 with Dak...

    I would not even put Smith as an option or any other old QB. If Dallas can't get a deal done then Cowboys must change direction in this draft with QB being top priority, you take the overall 10 pick and either select QB there or look to move up and get the QB you feel is the best. Playing around with old QB is nothing more than spinning your wheels

    Right because we all know a college degree equals to smarts.

    Meh. Dak's best season was his rookie year. Since then it's been downhill.

    He's a good "presentation" guy (like Garrett), but he's not worth what Mahomes is who only got such a deal after winning a Super Bowl. Dak's not good enough to be the "carry a team factor" over a good to strong defense, all other things being equal.

    Wonder if Zeke, Amari contracts, and the fact he played on a low salary for a long period of time have him feeling a certain way?

    Example: Jason Garrett who got a degree from Princeton.

    Daks career to date has been one blessed with foundational pieces like a solid offensive line and back then what was a solid rookie RB. As you have watched the offensive line degrade around him you have seen Dak play a lot worse. A large part of that is the time it takes him to go through his progressions - very slow. If he wants to be paid 44 million a year then this team is better off cutting bait or if they can tag and trade him great. I doubt if any team out there is going to want to mainly because they can simply wait the year for Dak to walk and secondly no one know what version of Dak is going to come back from the injury.

    The sheer length of his deal makes it easier for KC to make the cap work even though there's a gaudy total cap number of at least 450million.
    IMO If Dak wants 40mil aav but was willing to go 5-6 years it would be easier to make it work than 40mil aav at 4 years.
    While it's only one or two years, the ability to spread out the prorated bonus is stretched out and they can set restructures and spread out those cap hits over a longer term dropping the cap hits per year

    I was reading a tweet yesterday from a college professor who has a PHD claiming that a child born in 2010 would be 18 years old in 2018 and her explanation of the math was 10 + 8 = 18 :facepalm:.

    This is exactly the issue. It's not just the money or the length. It's both. If he pushed for one, but relented on the other I think this would be done.

    Unbelievable that Troy would swallow Todd France's encouragement to assume such high expectations. Todd France, evidently, has Dak in his back pocket, with all the lavish praise that he's awarding him. I was hoping Dak was wise enough not to swallow the fairy tales that France leads him with. I gave Dak credit for having a better sense of reality than that. I really hope this is fake news but if not, nothing good seems likely to come from it. It makes me sad to see Dak being led by someone so determined to make such absurd demands. Dak would be wise to rid himself of Todd France.

    Why are you even here? To convince others to be as miserable and curmudgeon as you? I'm only 1/4 of the way through the thread....sheesh.

    Well, it teaches you how to actually learn on your own and not write things like "equals to smarts".

    I want Dak to stay but is it any wonder he’s besties with the biggest diva on the team, zeke?

    Apparently they drink from the same well of delusional waters and spend more time getting low key faded than facing reality.
