    He's like a smaller Dak, not very good at QB.

    You don't seem to understand the "QB Savior" complex.

    Guys like Darnold and Mayfield suffer from this where guys like Dak, Alex Smith and Jalen Hurts are game managers and they know and are comfortable with that role..

    If Hurts were to be drafted to a bad team in need of savior, he would bust, but if Hurts was to be drafted here and asked to drive the bus he would excel.

    Dak on almost any other team would be just another Tyrod Taylor/Jacoby Brissett.

    The smart move would be to draft hurts but we will see..

    And dumping generally leads to lower yards per attempt, but again Hurts was higher than Dak? Look I like Dak, but he was a raw passer coming out of college. Hurts will be drafted higher because of his talent, which is raw too. Is he as good of a passer as Dak right now? No, but coming out of college I think most would rate Jalen higher and statistics say Dak wasn't more accurate. That's a fact and not a jaded view.

    I like that idea, Cole would be a great late round QB for MM to groom.

    Hurts' stats are greatly helped by facing the horrible Big XII defenses this past season. The conference that inflates the stats of many QBs.

    Jalen Hurts cannot play QB. He doesn’t have the anticipation or the accuracy or ability to read defenses that it takes to be successful.

    Watch this video and watch the TD to Ridley. At the start of the play Ridley is WIDE open. Right in front of Hurts and Hurts does not even see him. This happened almost every time he dropped back to pass at Alabama. Also on the flea flicker, Ridley is open by about 8 yds and Hurts underthrows him so bad the DB catches up and knocks the ball away

    Terrible QB. Good leader. Strong runner. Strong arm. Awful awful at reading defenses. ZERO anticipation on throws. Will never ever be a good QB in the NFL

    This will be the lead on Get Up, First Take, Undisputed, etc...... Talking Heads will have a field day. If the Cowboys were talking to Eason, University of Washington I would be worried if I was Dak because of his arm talent. Hurts is Dak if he develops.

    mope.... its called negotiations. At some point, its like anything else. I love this house... I want to buy this house, but they are asking 550k. I can only pay 450k... I wait, I offer, but they wont come down. At some point, I need to go buy a different house. Same principal with a QB.

    I dont like him, but who cares what I like. Point is simple. it would send the message to Dak that we like you, we want to keep you, but if you dont budge on your demands, we are prepared to move on without you. Its called covering your ***. Kind of like the difference between being prepared for this crisis, and not.

    I don't think Dak actually has Cowboy fan haters. I think he just has some fans that don't think he is good enough.

    Hurts is not a big time NFL prospect. Accuracy is very suspect and I question any QB coming out of Oklahoma. Big 12 plays zero defense and Lincoln Riley plays sandlot offense. Plenty more guys other than him if Dallas is looking at a top half of the draft QB.
