Did you miss last season? Dak was one yard off the franchise record for passing yards in a season. You claim his stats came against teams with losing records and you’re wrong. He put up 397 yards against a Vikings team that made it to the NFC title game last season and he had a career high 463 yards against a Packers team that also made it to the NFC title game. He carried us in some games last season. The Commanders waste draft picks on QBs. They found the best one they’ve had in at least 20 years in the 4th round and were stupid enough to let him walk. They got to watch their former franchise QB almost lead the Vikings to the SB, while they were sitting home with the second overall pick where they may have to take another QB for the second straight year. Some of you want us to end up like them.
So, you argue with stats to pay someone and not their mechanics/ability? I thought when you pay someone for the future you would expect very positive results especially with a 35M contract. Maybe we should teach Dak to “Tebow” because you are using the past stats to support the future without considering the individual. Trouble is that Jerry gets suckered into this thought process. Patriots do the exact opposite - they don’t spend if the potential isn’t there.

When it comes to ranking QBs yes it is the more important stat. Beating winning teams is a team result. How do you not understand this?
I agree. Wins are obviously more important but are a team accolade, not one player. Some fans act as if it's one on one.

If you watch the games he has ability, leadership and great intangibles. He’s a battler who will lower his shoulder taking on defenders to pick up first downs and he doesn’t miss games. He fought through a couple of injuries late last season that kept him out of practice. The stats I was talking about were from last season. You claimed his numbers came against teams with losing records and you were wrong. Two of his most productive games were against teams that were in the NFC title game.

It's not like we haven't heard this amount mentioned before. I'd hate to think Slater is a liar, but maybe she was just fed wrong information at the time.
Or was she?



And who you calling a yahoo...rockhead. Your obvious lovefest for Dak is well documented.

You. That tweet is from 2019 yahoo.

And yet he got significantly outplayed by Mitch Trubisky, Teddy Bridgewater, and Sam Darnold.

And there was that horrific performance in Philly that cost Dallas the playoffs.

So.....

What significantly got outplayed was our defense in those games. Our QB isn’t the problem it’s our defense. Allowing a QB like Mitch Trubisky and Sam Darnold to light us up falls on the defense. Carson Wentz had vertically no weapons at receiver and still had success against our defense.

OK I misunderstood what you said. The point I’m making is you would have to move on from Dak to go with Rivers. I don’t see Dak’s contract demands ever reaching the point where the Cowboys would move on from him and go with a lesser cheaper QB, especially an aging, declining QB like Rivers. Dak has improved every season, the gamble would be to move on from him and go with a lesser QB. We would be destined for failure and regret going that route. The level Dak has already reached gives us a chance to win it all if we can fix the defense. A few more opportunities from takeaways last season could have been the difference.

Agreed..Cool beans. I could stomach trading Dak although it would make me pretty nervous. In no scenario do I thinks its acceptable to simply let him walk out the door.

I wouldn’t trade him because that would leave you in the same predicament if you allowed him to walk, you would be stuck with Cooper Rush or some castoff. Nothing we could get in a trade would be more valuable to the Cowboys than he is. We’re talking about our franchise QB. No one trades their franchise QB.

It's kind of insane how lucky we were when Romo got injured.

We probably got even more lucky when Kellen Moore got injured because that gave Dak the opportunity to get a lot of practice and preseason work. Had Moore not got injured he probably would’ve ended up starting the 2016 season.

Mahomes gets a ground breaking contract, huge guaranteed money, absolutely unheard of avy 43 million per year, Daks agent then steps in and makes his case, demanding 38 million apy. You gonna re-sign Dak still?

Ive asked others that are re-sign Dak or bust and no one has been able to provide me with a limit to how much they would pay Dak. Id be interested to know since you wouldn't trade him or let him leave in any case. What is your limit?

What Mahomes ends up getting won’t impact what Dak gets. Dak hasn’t come close to the level Mahomes has reached. I’m willing to sign him for whatever it takes but I don’t believe it will take 38M. I’m not moving on from him with an unproven QB or castoff that went bust. I believe he has what it takes to win a championship.

Thanks for the straight up answer. We will have to agree to disagree, but I appreciate your points and actually agree with most of your thought process. Only difference is I have a limit.

I am coming into this conversation on page 14 and haven't read a thing. That said, I personally do not want Dak at anything over $33 million a year. I don't care what the "market" says. I want the Cowboys to be able to field a team of high quality players and I don't believe that's possible if Dak gets $35 million plus. Sign him to a three year deal at 33 per. If he continues to improve, deal with him again in the future.

The franchise tag gives us time to see if he continues to develop before committing to a huge contract. If he and his agent are asking for an unreasonable amount of money let him play under the franchise tag and let’s see how he performs. We can tag him the next two seasons and if his play starts to decline we can move on. He’ll be gambling on himself because if his play drops off or he suffers a serious injury to his elbow or throwing shoulder that will lower his value. If the Cowboys have offered what’s been reported it would be in his best interest to accept the offer.

The crooked officials stole that division playoff game against Dak and the Cowboys during the 2016 playoffs. Cowboys should have made it at least to the NFC Conference Championship game. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it. Yet, here you are gloating and celebrating because of it. Says what kind of a "fan" you truly are.
stop blaming others for the lack of results. It is not all on Dak , but we know what Dak cannot do , which is win games with his arm against quality opponenets. This means he is not worth what he thinks he is due. It is as simple as that. A great coach like Parcells said: you are as good as your record says you are. Dak's record against winning teams last year is 1-6 and get to 3-10 over the last 2 years. What more can be said.

True wed also be gambling as well though. If his play drops off hes no longer an asset and any hopes of a transition tag and a nice compensation package probably fade away. Of course thats more appealing than investing heavily and realizing it to be a mistake.
