    To be sure . . . my first impression made me wonder if Shaw was comparing them the way Brady is now and in that sense, it would be a "huge leap of faith" to assume Dak will progress to that level. Like I noted, I wouldn't be one to say Dak can't or likely won't do so in time. I'm sure it'll take time, no doubt, for him to possibly reach that level of play if he's, indeed, destined to. As it is, his work ethic compares to Brady's and that's a good start.

    I'm sure Romo would be happy to take his money on the links.

    Exactly @Ring Leader but some his detractors on this forum says he's another Foles, and RG3 that gimmicky Chip Kelly offense or that offense Shanahan ran with RG3 is nowhere near the pro style offense that Garrett/Linehan has Dak running where he definitely has to read coverages and go through progressions neither Foles, or RG3 possesses this trait never have never will Dak will only get better not worse.

    Now we just need a coach who can compare favorably to Belicheck.

    The hype train has officially jumped the track.

    I'd be satisfied if he just reached Troy Aikman's ability and skill level. I doubt we ever see a QB reach Brady's level of success again, not very many people are willing to commit to the kind of disciplined diet that Brady has committed to for his NFL career.

    I don't believe that even the most "cautious Dak accepters" are claiming he's a RGIII, Foles or Kap clone. They are just a little more cautions about jumping on the Dak wagon mind body and soul after a surprisingly strong rookie campaign.

    They should take notice, however, that his skills are not based on immense physicality/speed or a gimmicky system that will be eventually exposed. Dak's skills are solidly foundational in nature and should do nothing but improve with experience.

    Even for those who love Romo (count me in) you have to be ecstatic about the future of this kid. I know I am.

    He could...but will need Haley and that stout defense. It was grossly under rated! No SB without that defense.

    Good post. I didn't know a thing about Prescott.

    I agree, the defence needs a stud DE end and DT...

    If you actually watch games, and not stats, you'd know Brady is damn near untouchable.

    There are a few in this league right now they are "close" to being as good as Brady.

    I'm just not comfortable comparing Dak to Brady. That's all.

    Comparing Dak's demeanor and wortk ethic to when Brady 1st entered the league. What's uncomfortable about that?
