How does what motivates Dak determine what a fan knows?
You know damn well he meant a shootout vs. the Rams. You also know the Giants game wasn't a shootout. A shootout doesn't occur in just the last quarter of a game.
the point was that Dak shouldn't be nor do I think he is motivated by playing against Goff, because Goff was the first pick and Dak the 4th rounder....Dak's motivation is to win, win playoffs. he doesn't care about who is on the otherside and revenge!!!! draft, draft order, etc. is for the fans......they get satisfaction that a 4th rounder beat a 1st over all pick. if Dak is motivated by that, then Dak needs to re-examine his priorities
He was trying to make the point that Dak got in a shootout (even though it wasn't) and won, even without Zeke. If Zeke had played, Dak wouldn't have been throwing the ball as much, which means he wouldn't have gotten into a "shootout". That's how it makes sense.
And that means what in the Giants game?
I feel the same way, I know our defense has fallen off some in the recent weeks. But, I think they are good enough to prevent a shootout type of game. As shootout makes it sound like they are going to let the Rams easily score, every time the Rams offense gets the ball.
While I don't see the Cowboys defense completely shutting down the Rams, I do have faith in them that they won't be so bad that Dak is required to score everytime the Cowboys offense gets the ball.
He threw it less in the Giants game with Zeke on the Sidelines than he did against the Eagles with Zeke in the game.
Just refuting your point that he would have thrown it less if Zeke was in the game.
If Zeke weren't in the Eagles game, he would have thrown even more. If Zeke were in the Giants game, there certainly would have been more running plays, don't you think?
Not sure. Zeke caught a lot of balls in the Eagle game, 12 to be exact.
He cares, pretty sure he said so since he was the 8th QB taken off the board. I know Brady and Romo used their draft status as motivation throughout their careers.
Nope. Try again. Let's link the actual posts:
He is clearly referencing the Rams game upcoming. He says we are doomed (ergo, "likely can't win") if this game (the Rams game) is a shootout.
Nav22 responds with this:
His claim is clearly that we can win a shoot out with the Rams because we just won a shoot out with the Giants. There is an equivalency there that we are talking about two common opponents. My guess is Nav22 doesn't really think the Rams and Giants are comparable opponents which would mean his point wasn't a very good one.
So to try to suggest this is only about winning a shoot out in general and therefore a strawman is a misrepresentation of the conversation.
I see your point, but do you really think we wouldn't have run more, with the #1 RB in the league playing?
Stop being goofy and naive
You know dam well that wasnt a shootout vs the Giants.
Romo vs the Broncos in 2013 was a shootout.
Goff vs the Rams this year was a shootout
Patriots vs Chiefs was a shootout
You also know Dak and this offense arent built for shootouts, hence saying we need our defense and running game to step up to win this game.
This Dak slobbering is nauseating. And bfore you say im just hating on dak, ive gave him several compliments over these past few weeks.
pretty sure? is there a link somewhere that he said that? and it maybe general motivation, but at some point it doesn't matter...... what's his motivation against Saints? Brees was drafted in the second round, 18 years ago?
36-35 isn’t a shootout???
Dak passed 40+ times in 2 games this season.
He finished with 455 and 387 pass yards in those 2 games. 7 TD passes combined.
We won both games.
land of the giants, (dating myself)
No, it isnt
Question for the Zoners
I read that Goff gets to the line 15 seconds early so that McVay could help him out with pre-snap reads. Does JG or Linehan do that with Dak?
LOL, yeah okay.
Let me guess: Dak’s also not clutch despite people saying that he is, right?
