    The fact Stafford is finally getting dues actually makes me happy. Dude has been trashed his whole career as a 'failure' when he was playing with mostly inferior teams. If he had receivers.. the line was no good.. they got a half ok line.. the receivers went down.. the RB was a revolving door.. and their defence was leaky. And then Stafford would be trying another fourth quarter come back and throw a pick.. and get blamed for the loss. In fact.. Stafford is a better version of Romo.

    However what this season shows.. is that class can be misused but it doesn't go away. Stafford always had the arm talent, smarts, accuracy etc to be an elite QB.

    Which makes me think.. why don't more teams go and look for guys like Stafford or Carr that are good QBs, high draft picks.. who got sent to crap teams and have 'under performed' based on that.

    Seems that Stafford wouldn't be the only one that might be able to turn it around.

    Or maybe I'm just still hoping we will replace Dak with someone.. like Carr or Wilson.. and make something work in the next five years rather than watching Dak throw it all away.

    Oh and the Cousins comparison is accurate.. always been accurate.. I'd have Cousins ahead on pure talent but they are almost a par. One is a 'laughing stock' and the other seen as the messiah. Go figure.

    i used to believe that but the Dak who played the second half of the season since the Denver game has no shot to win a SB at all

    There's been a couple, not regular posters, I was referring more to those who say Dak has no talent...

    There’s been more than a bunch of fans say he has no talent but no one that I’ve seen has said they would rather have Mac Jones than Parsons and Dak. I asked if anyone would and no one has responded with a yes. They would have to be crazy to.

    Don't forget Dak was saddled with Garrett for his developmental years, some of his faults could probably have been corrected with proper coaching...

    I mean Dan Marino is ringless lol. Eli Manning has 2 rings. Now you can argue that Eli Manning is a better quarterback than Dan Marino....but i'd advise you not to lol.

    Jamarcus Russell was also a #1 pick. Draft status means nothing. And Stafford had argubably the most dominant wide receiver of all time and did nothing. So you can sit here and claim you knew he had "skills" against college competition but even this year proved he's far from a flawless quarterback. This is what happens when you have Sean McVey at the helm and not Jason Garrett or Mike McCarthy. Rams win BECAUSE of Sean McVey not in spite of him.

    Dak's cap hit wouldn't be issue if you didn't have so much money invested in a offensive line that's a shell of its former self. Also would help if you were getting more on your investment of guys like Lawrence and Zeke. That's a lot of salary outside of Dak that I personally could do without but for some reason fans have been brainwashed to think Dak's contract is why we can't build a proper team or higher a proper coach.

    Denial about what? So you agree with the article that Dak had 27 touchdowns?

    Would love for Coach Mac to take a more active role with Dak.

    I have to believe those guys are either trolling or saying it tongue in cheek. There’s no way a qb can start in this league for 6 seasons and not have talent. The debate is centered on value for the dollar in regards to the salary cap. Dak is easily top 12-15…..the drop off from top tier to middle tier is apparent and the Prescotts, Carrs and Cousins are still talented quarterbacks

    Come on man...unless the Owner decides to stop playing GM and make the moves in the FO happen to win..all the players careers are wasted...again you have to ignore 26 years to not see this.

    These type of comparisons are impossible, they are the same as Dak trash Dak elite conversations. People have a vested interest on both sides, have dug in

    I am a Dak guy, I make no bones about it. I think my point of view is backed by the numbers and is totally rational. I'm sure those that absolutely despise Dak feel the same way.

    At this point it is what it is, it'll be what it will be. You guys think Dak is Comparable to Kirk Cousins, I think he's better. It takes all types !!!!!

    Apples and Oranges...it's all different...cannot compare. Fake News.

    SB Night...my band just made some good money playing the blues...(tips poring in). I love Sunday, so for now...all I can say is Dak is the QB of the Cowboys...win or lose, it's all good.

    Time to hit me some sweet herb, grab a beer...and check what it's all about. It just has to be what it is.

    because of himself lol. cook is better than zeke, diggs, thielen jefferson are better than amari, lamb and gallup, vikings defense has been better overall since 2016.

    the difference is Dak is better than Cousins. and that’s with me supremely down on him
