If we don't stick with Dak, I will be extremely upset as a fan

    Flip that take for a second..

    What if we magically end up with the ability to draft Trevor?

    What could we expect as a trade haul?

    2 firsts, 2 seconds - at minimum? How much will that save us on contracts for other players.

    I would rather have a QB like Lawrence on a rookie contract for 5 years.

    Don't worry. Right or wrong, the Joneses are fully committed to Dak.

    I anticipate the issue this year will be the guaranteed figure.

    Dak likely would enjoy the security of a 5 year deal, but Jerry might not be willing to guarantee enough to warrant it after the injury.

    I actually think both sides would be fine with a 4 year deal.

    Be prepared to find a new team would be my advice. The day that team is eliminated from the playoffs usually you can find gear 30 to 50% off.

    I'd rather have the firepower to fix the entire defense, and keep Dak.

    I think this would spark a fire at least from fans, like a new beginning.
    I like Dk, and won't complain if he is signed. But I am not 100% sold on him either. Just as I was not 100% on romo either. They both are / were, very good, but yet something was still off a bit.

    I won't tie my fandom to one player. I'm a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Not the Dallas Daks.

    That being said, Dak's the QB and will likely remain so. If Lawrence somehow falls to the Cowboys, I have no problem drafting him. He can sit behind Dak and learn for a season or two...then we have an QB competition and trade who we don't need. Win-win...ASSUMING Lawrence would fall to us, which isn't likely.

    Yes I thought of that as well, what can they get as that type of a draft haul would be hard to pass up, knowing you have Dak at QB, but is he really the QB to keep, could be questioned for a long time.
    The thing is, will the Dak haters go nut, or would they be happy with that trade knowing they can fix the defense and the OL within 2 years. As the team can still win during that time as well.

    Dak is the franchise QB.

    Given how this team has drafted on defense in recent years...I'm siding with drafting a QB like Lawrence who has a far higher ceiling than Prescott and having $40 million to sign 3 elite defenders for a couple of seasons.

    To be fair the offensive line is a huge concern given the state of it in recent weeks. So that will need to be addressed as well.

    I completely agree.

    It's time for a fresh start.

    We won't even have a chance at Lawrence anyway.

    I guess you didn't comprehend what I wrote.
    Re-read it and get back to me.
    Read carefully now.

    BTW it won't be Trevor. The Jets have a death grip on the top pick. It would be Fields or Zack Wilson.

    lol Winston was the leading passer last year. How'd that go? People hung up on stats when they play from behind a majority of the time. Extrapolate that times 16 and you're lucky to go 8-8. The D stinks, the Oline is an issue, and they overpaid numerous guys... so what's another? This team is a long way off and now you have a QB coming off a horrific injury. This is not a good situation and you can surely bet Jerry won't make the correct call here so you have nothing to worry about.

    If we just had Dak we could overcome all the injuries, turnovers, and bumblehead plays and be a contender.

    That is why you don't root for players, you root for the team.

    Players will always come and go, but the team is forever.
