Let’s be clear, Dak carried the team

Oh I’d give Brown for nothing! I was working on a trade that night actually get Gilmore here

Oh you're not wrong about that. Either way, we need Gilmore.

no.... If I were another team with a brain, I wouldn't trade a doughnut for Anthony Brown.

I'd actually probably straight up cut Brown and do what we could, short of giving up a 1st, to get Gilmore here.

Tampa Bay dared the cowboys to beat them with Prescott throwing it. They were really geared to stop the run with their shotty secondary. Without Tampa shooting themselves in the foot it’s likely a comfortable win for them.
You’re right. That said, consider this. Without the Cowboys shooting their self in the foot, it’s likely an easy victory for them, too.

Played much better than anyone expected, even the homers.
I wouldn't say that. He played like he has...mildy surprised there wasn't more inconsistency with missing so much time, the injury and coming out of the gates with the world champs.

Cedric Wilson is a good player.....he needs more time. And after seeing Brown get roasted....maybe Gilmore would be a good mentor for Joseph.

Yup, so, the more I think of it, the trade of Gallup and a 3rd for Gilmore would be a good trade. The Pats get a WR (that we'd be losing anyway) and a 3rd (which we'll get back in comp picks). We get Gilmore to go on the other side of Diggs. Do that, and I think we might actually win the SB this year.

give up Zeke, Brown and a mid pick for one of the Ravens CBs.. Marlon Humphrey is pretty damn good.

I could go for that, except for one reason. While Zeke wasn't running, I don't blame that entirely on him. 1. We had no Martin and 2. we were playing Suh and Vea. Let's see what he does against the Chargers. Should be more favourable for him, and then we have the Eagles next, who he routinely destroys.

I literally think I could come up w/ 8 plays where he missed wide open guys for TDs. The post corners and deep drags were open all night long. I seriously am wondering if he has the arm strength to throw it now. He left a ton of points out there. Maybe that shoulder injury might be more serious than we think.

Sure he threw it 58 times....but he was late a bunch and really never pushed it down field.

There's no pleasing some people. Dak did his job with flying colors. Zuerline cost us this game by giving away 4 points.

I'd rather just keep passing more. The offensive gameplan was great except for the last series. And I don't know why they didn't set up Dak on the very last play of the game to make the initial throw. Just using all special teams is acquiescing to not even giving the hook and laterals play a chance.

As he did before he got injured last year. We need a good old 20 carry 100 yard game from Zeke though every now and then if they are to be serious contenders this year. 31 yards is unacceptable

I don't like the idea of throwing that much with Dak though. He's a great QB, but we do need to run more to protect Dak, and, as stated, the next 2-3 teams should be more favourable for Zeke.

Ok, maybe I am wrong. Can you quote the homers that were predicting this performance? The ones I have been seeing dominate the conversation have been tempering expectations but some high expectation predictions may have slipped passed me.

I predicted Dak would throw for 400+ and the Cowboys would lose by 2, 36-34.

Well the score was slightly off, but I got everything else right, including the victor and spread.

Give me props.

well I did get one other thing wrong. I didn't think Dak would throw a pick. But that was Lamb's fault though
Cool. Was this a documented prediction or not? And I don’t want to question your integrity, just asking from the angle that I made my comment based upon what I have been able to read on the board.

I don’t make evaluations on one performance.

Tonight though Dak was simply incredible all things considered and that’s just the reality.

Props for stepping up and callin it like it is.. Dak balled out.. If Lamb doesn't gator arm that one we probably win the game and Dak's passer rating is above 130...

lol without missed field goals and CeeDee drops it's a comfortable win
