Has Dak been hiding how bad our offensive is?

The offense was at its best when Zeke was great.. The more we ask from Dak the worse our team gets and the better his numbers look.

If we're not going to ask more from Dak, we shouldn't be paying him so much more. Russell Wilson got paid, and produces every year even when there are limited resources spent on those around him.

I'd say that the offense was great when the *run game* was great. How much of that was Zeke and how much the oline is open to question. 2014 the oline had 2 All Pros and one Pro Bowler, 2016 3 All Pros. Leary playing well both seasons, Free playing well for 2014, average for 2016.

By the end of this year, the only real cap hit left on the field was Cooper and Zeke, and only one of them could be argued to be worth it.

Dak, Martin, Smith, Collins, Jarwin all out. Yet The Replacements put up some big games. As the defense got rolled. Time to spend more on defense, and *stop* spending on players that don't value commensurate to their cap.

No. He's actually displayed exactly how good or bad or Offense is. People, you need to stop acting like Dak is the difference maker in our Offense. It's just not true. The strength of our team is the OL. It has been for years. When the OL is strong, the Offense is good. When it's not, the Offense is bad. It's as straight forward as that.
I tend to agree with this post. I don’t think our offensive line is nearly as good as it once was. “Connie” Williams is part of that.

We saw two backups qbs dalton and Gilbert look great behind a third string line not even the starting crew dak got.

In 2019 we ranked #1 in yards per game and #4 in points per game with a bruised Amari Cooper, still raw Micheal Gallup, and Randall Cobb who only started 6 games.

and before anyone says it was because we were down all the time we ranked #3 in points scored in the 1st quarter and #4 in points scored in the 2nd quarter.


Come 2020 for the first 4 games Dak started we ranked #2 in points per game and again #1 in yards per game.

Unfortunately, He gets hurt and we see Kellen Moore coach us to a slightly below average ranking of #16 in both points and yards.


Are we wasting our franchise quarterback’s prime and top 10 wideout with doo doo play callers?
Yes and he played without a no.1 WR the first part of 2018 while Jerry Dumbo GM Jones said the Arlington Jonesboys did not need a no.1 WR.

Jason Garrett, Linehan, and Moore are a waste of talent as coaches. Anytime they get within 20 yards of the goal line, they forget they have an All Pro RB.

Is this an indictment on our HC in waiting?
