    Backup CBs...??!?

    No matter...however, why is it that some teams are prepared to function reasonably well when called on to use a backup QB, whereas the Cowboys have rarely been so prepared, at least for the past 30+ years?

    Since the multi-talented Danny White backed up and then proceeded Roger Staubach at the position, the Cowboys idea of “backup QB” is that the #1 doesn’t get hurt.

    Or does 2015’s 4-12 float your boat?

    If someone see's the HC getting on the QB for not commanding and controlling the huddle in practice.....this is something that either happen or did not happen....its not his opinion.....he saw it.

    If your assessment of Dak is that he is struggling....There is no veteran QB out there better than Dak....no politics

    A comfortable lead means they would only be handing the ball off. We know they can do that.

    Obvioiusly, that was supposed to be QBs.

    I don't know why we don't value Backup QBs. I mean, our HC was the Backup QB for us and was valued in that role. I can't say I understand it.

    Actually we don’t know that. Considering Mike White has yet to play in a regular season game, no one knows what he might bring. I went to every one of White’s home games and some road games while he was at WKU. He can play. Can he play at the NFL level? None of us know at this point.

    The other part of that is that Belichick didn't go after Garappolo as the backup but the eventual starter, that makes a huge difference. And he's the most "entire team HC" in the league, maybe ever.

    The fact is there just aren't enough #1's to go around so if your guy goes down, so does your season. PHL was the exception, not even close to the rule.

    I would bet there are GM's and HC's that would take Prescott over Wentz just based on the games not missed comparison. Even if a team has a Tier 3 QB starting, there's still that difference and falloff to the backup.

    You mean like when Dak was thrust into the starting role as a rookie? Or when a totally unknown and unproven Romo was inserted into the lineup? Or better yet, when 6th round pick and unproven Tom Brady had to play when Bledsoe got hurt? I wish some of you guys would loan me your crystal ball. I’d love to get the winning lottery numbers.

    Actually we do know that. Weve never seen White in the NFL look better than Sanchez.....never. Heck not even in college.

    I don't think it has to be a number 1 QB. But it has to be somebody who can read a defense and run the Offense. Somebody who has some experience in the League.

    You would be VERY wrong on this point. White was absolutely terrific in college. I know. I attended most of his games. And no, you have no clue what he can or can’t do in the NFL. Not yet. We do know that Sanchez is absolute garbage. That’s what we actually know. Just because you think something is true doesn’t mean it is.

    By your logic, we’ve never seen White look as terrible in the NFL as Sanchez has either. But, just like what you said in the reverse, it doesn’t mean squat until White actually plays.

    For his sake, I hope they don't call him Bro-back.

    I dont remember Romo needing a QB coach to fix his "problems."

    And yes, Dak did struggle in 2017 and the first half of 2018.

    And No, Dallas did not sign a vet QB.

    And Yes, life is all about politics.

    Yep and that is why starting QBs are being paid $30+ mil. The drop off from a good starter to backup QB is the biggest in all of professional sports.

    I disagree. I think that this overall team is deep enough and strong enough to deal with any of the issues, even 'the Jeff Heath effect'. But if Prescott goes down, this team is dead in the water.

    I really hope Mike white shows something to get the backup job,if he doesnt then its time to jettison both and get a veteran QB for a backup.
