How the players will look at Dak next year, knowing he will choke

The joke is over, and the truth has come to light.
The Cowboys players will know from day one of training camp that Dak will choke every time they play a team that won't lay down for them. They will know that their playoff hopes will end when they face any team that punches back.
Which might be what they want.
The players these days make so much money that the post season is just an intrusion on their offseason plans, and doesn't pay as much as the regular season games. Only those who can capitalize in the endorsement deals and commercials actually benefit from the post season.
No matter what they say, Dak is not a leader, except at the bank.
And that will lead to uninspired play, and eventually the wheels not only come off, but will be shattered beyond repair.

What do you mean he's such a great leader he lost his number one receiver 5 minutes into the game

They won't look at Micah?

Where was Micah?

Dak is the main issue and everyone knows it. That fact can no longer be denied.
The last game was a repeat of every big game for the last eight seasons.
Dak threw two interceptions-one was a pick six- and at least two more should have been interceptions but were dropped. And he missed Tolbert wide open for a touchdown because he was focusing on CeeDee Lamb and threw into double coverage.
Dak provided NO help for the Cowboys defense- which was why the Packers offense had free run.

It doesn't seem to effect most of the other teams. Just Dallas.

Pretty much everyone choked so everyone should be doing some self evaluation on how they each can play better

I didn't see that.
I saw a Cowboys team that got NOTHING from their quarterback, and recognized early on how the game would end.
Dak had opportunities but was so dependent on CeeDee that he missed other receivers who were open.

Dallas is the only team discussed here, but there are other teams with similar issues.
Every team has a pretender; every team does not let that pretender destroy their season.
Therein lies the difference.
Ok, but just a few. We are at the bottom as far as winning in the playoffs. Look it up.

I think they don't care as long as they get paid. "who cares about winning, as long as I'm getting paid I'm good' the new NFL.
And that's Dak's leadership showing- or lack of leadership.
Jason Garrett taught him how to let others make excuses for his failures.
But he didn't teach him how to take responsibility and actually produce.
