    Is anyone but Fantasy players really interested in any stat other than winning?

    I suppose there are just fans who hopped on our wagon because of Dak. I guess fans still flock to teams because of a player?

    Stats are only used in an argument to provide a theory in defense or to attack those who come up short in winning.

    The great Troy Aikman had many I mean many regular season games where he averaged under 200yards..they used emmitt smith and great defense and timely drives to win many games..however im not concerned about the yards but hes missing open receivers , holding the ball to long which creates more sacks and kills drives..so if you take the Ls like Carolina and say ok if he was better we would have won..thats on Dak. I think the main issue with Dak is not total yards but all the yards and points left on the table because of his deficiency's..I hope for more success from him but it is concerning for sure when you go back and loo at film on what hes missing..id like to see a few more points and that comes with sustained drives that arent ahappening because of what I mentioned above..its the point totals or lack there of that is most concerning..

    Define hating Dak?

    Is that like a fan who doesn’t think Dak is great enough to lead us to a Championship ?

    Personally I like Dak. Bought all the gear his Rookie season. Have his first cover of Sports Illustrated framed in my sports cave. Great kid! Great story! Not a great QB.

    Not to be negative but even if you count the yards on the deep pass he still doesn't have many yards.

    He could have said that there were Zero losses against winning teams under those conditions.

    The stats don't indicated that it's hard to win under those conditions. The limited numbers are just indicate that things like zero INTs don't happen that often.

    What's a lie? You said Dak didn't throw accurate on 3/4 passes deep....... That's false, period, no matter how you wanna spin it. Add the fact you can't even answer my question also tells me you know you're false but you have an agenda to keep.

    I’m not really sure why fans are defending the 30th ranked offense and 29th ranked QB?

    Now if we can go to the Super Bowl with it then no one will care.

    But if not then it will be highly criticized and deservedly so.

    That's because Romo had the ability to throw for 300 yards.

    Because those rankings are based on a small sample against stout defenses and we've seen improvement from week-to-week.

    So as long as he as the ability to throw the ball for 300, it is alright for him to throw for less than 200 yards in a season ending loss. It's just not alright for Dak to do it in a regular season win. Clear as mud to me. :lmao:

    As the small sample increases and the results improve then we’ll praise the progress.

    Romo had that great game against Denver until he threw a pick in the end. Which isn't completely his fault due to the points the D gave up in that game. But, he still made a mistake which help cost that game. So, then his great game was made useless due to the Cowboys losing that game.

    Dak having a better Defense isn't his fault. That is on Jerry for not giving Romo a better D to help him out. But, seeing comments like "Romo would win the Superbowl with this defense" in a way where it seems some resent Dak for currently having the better D, I don't understand that. But, one of the positive things about a better D is Dak doesn't have to worry about putting up big stats every single game just to keep up with the opposing offense.

    Romo had some very good teams. He had opportunities multiple times to go or go further into the playoffs.

    Romo was (and still is) criticized to the obsessively extreme. It is in the early stages of a trait he shares with Prescott.
