    No you were right about Zeke sucking. That was an easy one. Congrats.

    As far as Zeke and the Oline being the reason for Dak's success, thats a huge stretch.

    Zeke and the Oline were terrible last year before Dak got hurt and he was leading the #1 offense in NFL history at the tune of 375 yards per game passing.

    Not a huge stretch at all. Just common sense which you lack.


    He’s a seasoned vet now in one of the best situations in football and he still sucks when we don’t run the ball well.

    Zack Martin made 1st Team All-Pro as a rookie.
    - Guards can't impact the game in the same way as a roving multi-tool LB but Martin was basically the best at his position the minute he stepped on the field.

    Larry Allen didn't start until game 6 but by the end of the season he was the best in the league at his position.

    LOL........ you mean his 2nd year in the NFL? LOL

    See that was your problem from the beginning. YOu made up your mind too early in the process and now look silly because Dak has developed like some of us always knew he would.

    Some people see what others cant. And like you some also cant admit they were wrong and stick with a losing story.

    Ware was not nearly as dominant his rookie year.

    So let me understand this. You will give Zeke the nod as if he also wasnt running behind the best OL in the league? But wont give any credit what so ever to Dak? LOL. This is why people dont take you seriously here.

    As we all know, there is such a thing as QB privilege. I'm sure that's why he won it over Zeke. Zeke won the rushing title, and it wasn't even close. That ranks in #5 all time in yards for 1 season. Dak haters here say it was Zeke who made Dak look good. He's production is on the decline while Prescott's is on the way up, so I'm good with your call.

    Yeah but Romo would have gone 11-5 with 23 TD’s and 8 interceptions while breaking his back so he’s better.

    For real? Please forgive me for being lazy by not looking up his stats. I seen a few here mentioning him so I figured he did.

    It's not that you're wrong....2016 Dak isnt half the qb if you put him in Cleveland that year. With that said though are we winning 13 games with Mark Sanchez at QB? Kellen Moore(Dont remember if he was on the roster yet or not)? Dak had a huge impact....he was a bus driver most games that year, but made plays when needed. Thats all the Cowboys needed for most games.

    The issue is more so you want to diminish any good that Dak brought or currently brings to the table. I'm not sure he was the central reason the Cowboys were successful that year, but he kinda saved the season after the Romo injury.

    We've had enough jokes about Prescott. Let's get back to serious candidates.

    I can see the Dak/Zeke conundrum both ways. Zeke did win the rushing title.. but Dak had what I believe was the best rookie season a QB ever had statistically.. and given that QB is far more difficult position to play it would be easy to declare that the more impactful season because it's the more impactful position. Dak was plenty good that year.. but Zeke was probably more dominant.. The truth is they probably fed off one another..

    Zeke was incredible and the #5 overall pick in the draft. He carried Ohio State to a National Title and almost single handedly beat Alabama.

    I give our OL a ton of credit.


    But a great OL and Run game is why we were so good. Dak played good but had he gone to the Jets or Bengals are we even talking about him? Is he even on an NFL radar?

    Moore was supposed to be Romo's backup that year but ruptured his achilles in camp which paved the way for Dak to start. And no.. we're not winning 13 games with either him or Sanchez at QB..

    We could ask that same question about Zeke.. Put him on a team with a crappy supporting cast and what is he doing right now? Dak and Zeke helped each other succeed in 2016.. It wasn't either or.. it was both..

    Dak was good his rookie year. Not denying that.

    Dorsett had a really good rookie season rushing for over 1000 yards in 14 games with 12 TDs and another TD receiving. That was in a era where rookies didn't often play.

    But I'd have to say Parsons edges him out simply because I think Parsons has had a greater impact on the Cowboys defense.
