    I say no..

    Zeke is.

    But everybody has their favorites.

    DAK is exceeding Romo I admit but not sure if his shortcomings can be overcome.

    Yet another collection of third-rate talking heads weigh in on Dak Prescott...AND the OP references Tony Romo right off the bat!

    Schraeger comes off badly here. Fixated on what the guy will get paid over the actual question.

    Ask yourself this:

    Who can this team better survive after losing?

    Anyone think Cooper Rush or Mike White can take you anywhere?

    If so, speak up!

    We done here?

    Dak is taking us to a Superbowl this year after a MVP season.

    Well..

    Maybe on a individual basis he is higher up because of the position he plays but Zeke, The Oline, the quality of receiver, and basically the entire quality of our defense is more important then he is..

    He’s only as good as the cast of players around him.

    If the team is excellent he can give you solid play.

    If we fail to protect him then he’ll be closer to Atlanta Dak.

    YES is the correct answer. Not even close. Without Dak we are dead in the water. NEXT.

    SCHRAEGER and cast are morons. Its just to get viewers...click bait crap. Its May and they write junk to fill time. Don't fall for the garbage in May.Me or you could do their jobs.

    If he's out, this team is dead in the water. There is nowhere else on the team where the dropoff is so great between starter and backup. Mike White showed little to nothing last year and Cooper Rush showed that he doesn't belong on an NFL roster. If Prescott goes down, this entire team goes down.

    I believe Mike White can get us into the playoffs. But that's just because this team is stacked.

    DAK is perfect for us.

    He has flaws but he has qualities uncommon in most other QBs.

    We say that White and Rush are not capable of winning.

    We do not know that.

    They are not getting the shot DAK has.

    Last summer was a disaster where we never played our starters and they looked like they had regressed.

    It was not them as much as us.

    We have problems dividing position play amongst several players to see them play.

    It is happening at TE, G and DL and WR.

    The backups are not getting meaningful reps and the price paid is poor play when they are needed.

    As loaded as others say we are as a talented team..

    we tend to squander it with repeating the same old mistakes and not having good players ready.

    Randle was supposed to help Murray..never happened.

    We ran Murray into the ground.

    When Murray left..we crashed.

    When Dez was released..we had nobody ready to step up.

    The list goes on.

    Truly everything that DAK has accomplished he has made with some of the best talent ever assembled for us.

    Could our backups be needed this year?

    If they are..great.

    This new offense may help them tremendously as well as Dak.

    Don't know.

    Nobody knows.

    DAK was a complete accident.

    He was supposed to ride the bench before starting.

    The fact he responded and succeeded has completely sidetracked our other QBs.

    Before we give DAK $30 mil/yr..

    I want to know more about White and Rush.

    I think it's just short-sighted to proceed without knowing more.

    They both had two games last year where Dak didn't play. White showed little and Rush played his way out of the NFL.

    Rush should be thankful to still be on a roster. His shortcomings and every critique made of him coming out of college was on full display. He simply lacks the physical talent to play at this level, like the offensive coordinator did.

    With a defense that can carry it's own weight and a strong running game, you won't need that much from the QB position. If White can come in and give us 230 passing yards a game we can still win ten games.

    I don't think he can based on the guy I've seen so far.

    But kind of the point. Last year he was still getting use to the speed of the game as well as still learning the offense. So even though he hasn't looked good to great, he hasnt looked bad either. Because you and I both agree Cooper Rush doesn't belong in the NFL. But I can't say that yet about Mike White. So maybe just maybe he could win nine or ten. But like I said that's just because this team is stacked.

    99 times out of 100 a guy who looks like a stiff IS a stiff. Expecting 2017's 4th rated passer in Conference USA to take an NFL team to the playoffs is some crazytown stuff.

    If he's out then it just depends on the quality of the backup QB.

    The wheels wont fall off like it did with Romo because this team is not as QB dependent as Romo's teams were.
