    I posted this same thing in another post earlier.....

    I want Cooper Rush to play in the Rams and Eagles game to see if he could look as good against THESE type of defenses. I say if he plays as good against these two teams as he's played against the lesser defenses he's look great against.....

    He would officially win the starting job, and im officially listening to trade offers for Dak before the trade deadline to see who'd be willing to give up some high picks and willing to pick up most of his contact.

    The sad part is many here are hoping Dak comes back and then we get blown out against the Rams and Eagles.

    When ever Dak returns he will be on fire. What he does with the fire will be crazy times

    You're pretty spot on with everything. In a different thread I joked about the Rams game being his first game back.

    That said, they're not going to wait. You don't hurt your chances to win so that a player doesn't look bad. I don't think we're beating the Rams and Eagles with Dak, I think we have no chance with rush.

    But if they did do as you suggest, and the Cowboys keep winning, yeah, Dak would ride the pine.

    Great plan!
    My understanding is that Dak is untradeable until after the end of the next season due to the cap hit.

    My problem with bringing Dak back would be is if he started stinking it up and they didn’t bench him for Cooper. Then we got problems.

    Can you confirm please? I asked about cap hits to traded players in another thread the other day and didnt get a clear answer. I have briefly looked at what the internet told me was NFL rules on traded players and cap hits...what it told me was that a traded player does not count against the team trading him cap...all salary is absorbed by new team. Is this false? Or are people thinking waiving a player and trading him is the same cap hit? I always hear people saying that because of cap we cant get out of Prescotts deal? Is trading him not an option? I think everyone knows we cant waive him because of cap...but what about trading him? Either there are cap ramifications for trading or there isnt. And im not talking about a trade kicker and stuff like that. And I dont want to derail this by arguing about if another team would even take Dak(personally I think a team would take him right now at his contract).

    Just put your best man on the field. No politics. If they think Dak has the advantage over Coop they will play him. He looks a bit rusty still they will play Cooper. It's about who can lead the team to a win most likely, not who has to look good in front of the fans. Just imo.

    A good way to tell, look at base salary VS cap hit. The trading team will usually be paying the difference. The trading team is responsible for bonus money and void years.

    Don't worry Jerry has figured this out by now we won't see Dak until the Detroit Chicago games.

    It's like seeing your significant other with someone better looking.

    Dak isn't happy.

    If only that was how the Cowboys operate.

    They don't always play the best man. They play the most expensive man.

    When Dak comes back and we lose both the Rams game and Eagles game, you know what has to happen next with Dak:
