    Go look at the score every time he turned the ball over or almost turned the ball over... Get back to me.

    2 fumbles and 1 int. 1st Peppers knocking the ball out of his hands, 2nd fumble had the ball out on the bootleg and then of course the pass behind Witten that was picked.

    You can be pressured on plays in which the defense didn't blitz.

    Haha, I don't know why this strikes me as funny. It's like saying a RB's fumble wasn't his fault because he didn't see the defender coming that caused it.

    If the ball is in your hands, it's your job to protect it.

    I'm not sure why it's funny to you either, but your absurd comparison shines some light.

    A running back carrying the ball is nothing like a qb in the process of throwing. Dak was in the pocket for less than three seconds and was hit as he was throwing, a process in which he really can't physically protect the ball AND complete a pass (unlike carrying the ball and running). The fumble was on Free, not Dak.

    He had accuracy issues, and seemed to be affected by the wet ball. Maybe he was just off.

    So when Dez caught it and got Blandinoed, where and when was that? And who threw the pass to him? I think you need to check into the concussion protocol.

    You mean the game in which Romo threw for under 200 yards? Yes, he had a very Dak-like game. He also had his #1 WR, unlike Dak yesterdayZ

    If you had been following this thread, you'd realize I was responding to someone who's said we'd win by 50 if Romo plays yesterday. I love Romo, but there's simply no basis for that conclusion.

    Who you were responding to is immaterial, Romo had one incompletion in the second half of the '14 playoff game in green bay, and that required league intervention. To say he didn't play well there is ludicrous. But feel free to stand by that statement rather than admit your mistake. Your credibility will take the hit, not mine.

    It does matter because good, in context, meant playing like the old Romo, i.e. putting up crazy good numbers while making critical errors. He obviously played well in that playoff game because he was efficient and safe with the ball, exactly like Dak.

    In this game Dak was not safe with the ball, he fumbled twice and threw an interception. That's why it was his worst game yet. But he didn't cost us the win, and I'm sure he'll learn from it.

    Dak was iffy through about three quarters, aside from that drive at the end of the 1st drive which was brilliant. It was honestly the first time I've seen him play like an actual rookie since probably the first game. The fumble was bad, but the interception could've been real bad if the Packers would've scored a touchdown instead of settling for a field goal. However, Dak responded real well after the interception and I was extremely impressed by that. He faced adversity for the first time in his career and responded beautifully.

    There are things he can work on (like most rookies) and I believe he will work and improve on those areas, but he's playing fantastic football right now. He wasn't perfect yesterday or great even, but he was solid and helped by a dominant running game and great defensive play. People need to stop getting sensitive when people bring up that Dak can improve on things. He's not perfect, he's human and he will make mistakes. The fact that we're 5-1 and Dak can improve is something that to me is even scarier. If he starts fixing those things he's struggling with and maybe using his legs a bit more, this offense and team gets even better.

    Exactly right.

    Some are taking the PFF grade as a personal insult.

    Dak had some bad moments and did enough good things to come out of GB with a win.

    The kid is just a rookie... He's going to have some rough moments.

    Oh please stop. His career numbers, career Ints and TD to Int ratio can be put against the best. Romo is not, or was ever a turnover machine like people pretend. Stop repeating this nonsense! Go compare his TD's and Ints to the games best and get back to me!

    Read this: http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2016...ntroversy-interceptions-matter-dallas-cowboys.

    This should sum it up if you don't want to read: "Over time, Tony Romo has trended in the right direction when it comes to interceptions, with the notable exception of the shortened 2015 season, when his interception rate went through the roof. But he’s never come close to the streak of passes without a pick that Dak Prescott has already put up."

    I take it as an insult when you see they give Prescott the grade they did and then graded Wentz, who was pretty blah yesterday, a better rating.

    That has nothing to do with Romo. Dak had his good moments yesterday and his bad moments. He's a rookie and he has to improve on some things to get better. Romo had nothing to do with Dak's peformance yesterday so there's no need to bring Tony into the conversation.
