    I'm copying this from a article @ NFL.com by Bucky Brooks.
    Because it must apply to Dakota also,shouldn't it?

    n the scouting world, it takes about three years to determine whether a guy can really play. Although coaches and scouts want to accelerate the process for their young players, they understand that it takes some time to acclimate to the speed of the pro game while also mastering the nuances of the scheme. When it comes to the quarterback position, it takes about 30 starts with a strong supporting cast to make a solid assessment of someone's talent and potential as a QB1.

    "You can't really figure out if your quarterback can play until you surround him with enough weapons to have a chance," an AFC college scouting director told me. "In a perfect world, you want to make sure a young quarterback has a couple of pass catchers, a solid offensive line and a running back that you can depend on. When they have those pieces around them, you can quickly see if they can play at a high level or not."

    I agree. That's why I don't want to give up on Dak though I don't believe he is our long term solution.

    Exactly. @percyhoward has done excellent work determining the situations in which Dak has struggled. I have to think the Cowboys coaching staff has reached the same conclusions. Give him time to learn how to handle those circumstances.

    I'd like to give him a good coaching staff and students receiver!

    Dak is going to get a third year so that’s not an issue in my opinion.

    He needs a veteran qb in his ear. Bring back Sanchez. Makes more sense than having that Boise dude on the roster for most of the season.

    Fitz would have been good.

    The stupidity of the front office to have a second year qb with no veteran presence behind him. Romo, gone; Sanchez, gone. That Boise dude doesn’t count. No help. Dak may be a leader, but he is stil a young player in the league who has some serious flaws. A veteran backup was needed.

    It’s almost just as bad as Dooley coaching wide receivers, but that’s another topic all together...

    Actually, this is nothing new. Heck, even Tom Landry used to say the same thing. Amazing how many fans/posters only need a year or two to make evaluations. Thanks for posting ..........

    Well ya. You give most players 3 years. Let alone a qb who did damn good his first year.

    I think Dak COULD be the long term solution BUT that does not stop me from Drafting a QB in RD 1 - 3 this year as insurance if he does flop... if he does flop we have covered ourselves and bridged the gap hopefully.

    You would take a qb in round 1?

    Absolutely. That's why I'm giving Dak next year. He took a step back this year especially after Zeke's suspension. Still think he got shell shocked after the Atlanta game. Hope he can come back. He's a good guy.

    Three years for Dak and Taco should be the minimum, some players have taken 4-5 to fully bloom...

    One of the biggest things Dak needs is a competant QB coach.
    Wade Wilson has never been that, and if the reality is that most of the coach's will be back - they need to target a young QB wisperer to work with Dak.
    Wilson skated by with Romo after David Lee groomed him. And brings nothing to help Dak at all.

    Of course Dak should get a 3rd season. Heck, Romo didn't see the field until his 4th. If we got to see Romo start in his 2nd year in the league, he'd probably been run off the team.
