    I have. But this is about his actions after his career ended. His hysterical crying and complaining about not getting in.

    Whether he belonged in is borderline debatable. Personally I didnt think so.

    It is the crying part that I have little respect for. Some people go about things differently. Crying never got me anywhere.

    You seem to derive some perverse joy when in comes to Dak Prescotts’ struggles.

    When you've been insulted, ridiculed, called an Eagles fan, and downright slandered for a year for telling people Dak isn't a great QB you get joy in saying "I told ya so".

    My focus, like the Cowboys focus, should now be directed in to finding ways to have this team ready for a real QB in 3 years when this bums contract is up. Dak is just a placeholder now.

    Dak is a roadblock in the way of the Cowboys winning. I will continue to speak the truth about him until he is no longer on this team or he proves me wrong.

    You told us he would throw for more Tds in a season than any Cowboy in history? You told us he would finish 3rd in the league in rating?

    I didn't see this anywhere...

    So Pearson allegedly "cried" about not getting in the HoF and that somehow discredits his (obviously correct) statement about Dak being a $40M disappointment?

    Is that about right?

    I'm glad that Dak's personal stats matter to you more than the Cowboys success.

    Dallas Prescott fans are the worst.

    This is why Pearson referenced the $40M.

    "At $40 million a year, you've got to take charge in that situation," Pearson said. "You've got to be ‘the man’."

    Dak did not elevate his play to will the Cowboys to victory. Instead he regressed.

    For instance during the 1993 SB; the Cowboys looked bad the first half & Aikman was playing with a concussion. Thus the Cowboys trailed 13-7 at half.

    Jimmy put the game in Emmitt’s hand for the second half and the Cowboys outscored the Bills 23-0.

    I was waiting for Dak to come out like gangbusters in the second half to lead the Cowboys to victory against the 49ers & maybe complete a Hail Mary pass to win the game at the end…

    This is why we all fell in love with Drew. He speaks like a fan, and he speaks like a winner. He has the alpha dog in him still. While I agree with him, I also think thats not who Dak is. Lets look at his first 2 years in the league. He was the most accurate passer in the league, other than Rodgers! I think the issue is many fold. I think we must ask if he has lingering health issues, and if some of it may be mental. I think its a case of 2 many cooks in the kitchen givng Dak "advice"..ie Kellen, MM and Doug Nussmeier. There needs 2 be just 1 playcaller and dude in his headset..not 3. That will help him, to simplify. As much as we ragged on Scott Linehan, he was very good at getting Dak focused each play. He was the lone guy talking 2 him. Kitna with Linehan was pretty darn great for Dak. Right now, we have to simplify things for him so he can be the Dak we seen in 2016-2017.

    Then why are you harping on his shortcommings if his personal stats don't mean anything?

    Only when Dallas loses is it all Dak's fault in your world and when they win...it is because they "are soooooooo talented".

    You guys are seriously a joke.

    That is Dak’s problem since he sought to be paid like a top 1-2 alpha dog.

    Dak cost us 17 million last year and will cost 34 mill this next season. We have ways of lowering that number as well.

    He hasn't cost and will not cost us "40 million" for a few years....but keep repeating the brainless banter bc everyone else does!

    Dak is getting most of the blame but Lamb and Zeke were also criticized by Irvin in particular.

    The mark of a top coach is figuring out what a player does best and what he does worst and makes sure he uses him in the best way. We are expecting too much of Dak and that is the major part of the problem I think.
