Greatness and mediocrity....nice combination. Division titles, NFC championships and Super Bowls vs winning regular season games and one playoff win...again another nice contrast. You can fit all of Dak under Roger’s little fingernail.
I dont think Roger had even played in the NFL yet when. He was Dak's age. Plus Roger had Landry and a great defense. As if it were all Daks fault. Smh
Roger was great he also stepped into a situation of having a championship caliber team around him when he started his career. Dallas had played championship games vs the Browns and Green Bay, they played in the SB vs the Colts before Roger took over. I don't recall Dak stepping into that situation.
uh oh here it comes 1....2....
Dak stepped into a 13-3 caliber team with the most powerful offensive line in football with the top running back in football.
He's had ample talent around him to be successful.
He responded by going 8-8 this year in the weakest division in the NFL.
here comes what? lol Roger proved himself and is in the HOF. Dak is young and still has a career ahead of him. He has shown great improvement in his game despite changing of OC and once again has another OC he will need to learn from.
2015 Dallas had 4 wins Dak drafted and started the 2016 season in which Dallas won 13. Get your facts right.
The Cowboys best team was in 2015. They won only 4 games because Jason Garrett was lost without Romo and didn't try to win but the 2015 team should have contended for a Super Bowl with Brandon Weeden, and would have if Garrett hadn't been so incompetent.
Roger was a 27 year old rookie.
When fans of other teams say cowboys have one of the worst fanbase in the NFL. I see why. How the hell is throwing for 5,000 yards and a 3 to 1 td:int ratio mediocre?
Those four wins came with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel, along with Joseph Randle starting the year at tailback. It was circumstantial because Romo was hurt and Demarco was gone. The previous year was 12-4 with a referee's call ending it in Green Bay on Dez' catch.
Dak showed up the same time Zeke was drafted for Romo and the best offense in the NFL, and a schedule against almost all losing teams. Even more circumstantial.
Those are the facts.
13 and 3 team that was 4-12 the previous year. Yeah ok
I don't want to hear your excuses. Fact Dak walked in as a rookie on a team that just came off a 4-12 season. He did not walk into a great situation and fact is we had won nothing even with Romo. Roger stepped into a situation where the Cowboys were playing for titles already. Dallas has not played in a title game in over 25 years. Not even close to the same.
And 12-4 the year before.
There was a time when 3500 yards was elite, and 4000 was almost unheard of. This year 18 guys threw for 3500, and 12 threw for 4000. Yardage isn't even a thing anymore. Jameis Winston led the league with 5109 yards.
Dallas had three games this year without even scoring a touchdown. What kind of "elite" quarterback does that?
Everything that don't get to the Super Bowl is a participation trophy.
Yes a rookie RB a Rookie QB and managed to go 13-3. Again much different than Roger he stepped into a well coached team who were playing for championship. When was the last time Dallas was playing for a championship? Did Romo bring us to any championship games? You guys can go on about Dak all you want. Sorry I don't share your views
Dak inherited the best offense for a rookie in the history of the NFL.
