    36 a year for how many years? If it's longer than 4 years than that's a bargain. Plus on a contract the most important number is guaranteed money not the average yearly salary

    Tua could possibly be a HOF QB, but with his injury history are you not worried one bit? This team isn't getting younger and now you need how many years before Tua is ready?

    Not sure why the hell anyone would let a 4 year starter with a winning walk with no compensation. It makes no sense.

    So paying substantially more for Dak is going to improve the Cowboys? Unless you think he's going to turn into an elite QB that's a bad decision.

    After 4 years I think he is what he is, good but not great. Now we're going to tie over 15% of the salary cap to him? Cuts will be made elsewhere, making the Cowboys a lesser team. Again, unless you think he's going to keep improving to an elite level. I have my doubts.

    If his hip is good to go, he should be ready in 2021 and the other injury was one like Mahomes got on his lower leg. They brought him back in a little early and ran him on a sneak and he got a dislocated knee. That's a freak injury like Tua's and from what I've read he should fully recover.

    He is a QB I would take a chance on more than Burrow or Herbert in this draft and I like both of them. Tua gets the ball out like Mahomes and that lefty reverse spin wasn't a problem for his receivers. It does present a problem for DL trying to hit the ball because they're not used to that delivery. And DB's are not used to that reverse spin and he throws with authority.

    If the Doc clears him, I would go for him but I don't know what MIA would demand in a trade. I know any QB in the draft is a risk but the reward if he pays off is huge. I like Lawrence in 2021 too but not as much as Tua because of his delivery into tight windows, he already throws a NFL type pass.

    But I am dreaming, they're not going to do that.

    They don't have much choice if they can't sign him and if he no shows, they need to rescind the tag.

    I also don't think any team is going to give him what he wants and give the Cowboys 2 1sts. The timing with the tag is the major challenge. They cannot leave this in his court and just let him walk in at the last minute and get paid and not know the offense.

    Dak can't even get 50% for a new mega-deal?:huh:

    Times are a-changing with the Cowboy nation as you can fool some of the people some of the time....you know the rest.

    Because the salary cap will go up and by then the salary of QBs will be 45 plus maybe even in the 50s by then. I believe Dak is a franchise QB and I also believe McCarthy will help get Dak in elite status.

    I'm higher on Tua than Lawrence if his injuries check out. I'm not a doctor so I'm not going to claim I know. Thanks for your input, I enjoy reading from people more knowledgeable than me.

    It doesn't matter if he is worth $32M, $35M or $40M. That really doesn't have much to do with what he will get paid. His deal is the next in line and it will be more than the last one. Just like the next QB to get paid, his deal will be worth more than Dak's. Like it or not that's the way it works right now in the NFL.

    If you don't have a feel for what the opinions are about what to do about Prescott after the continuous nonstop threads about Prescott that pop up every day, then can I suggest a different hobby to take up your time.

    It matters if you want to win a super bowl. It matters a lot.

    Didn't you see Wilson complaining that he needs more talent around him? That's what happens when you hold the team hostage for a monster contract. You go from super bowl appearances to earlier playoff exits.

    What is this "reports say" crap? It's all rumors and none of it should be taken seriously.

    We all know sports journalism is trash in 2020 but people are just taking twitter gossip as gospel and it's dumb.

    Yep and what's going to be interesting is to see if there's a run on getting all of these young guns re-signed before they're facing what the Cowboys are or if they want to wait and let Mahomes set the ceiling. If I've got Jackson, Watson and even Mayfield, I've got to play this a little cagey.

    They're all trying to figure out what the Cowboys could have signed him for at the end of last season vs where they are now. Could they have gotten him for Cousins and Garoppolo money, high 20's?

    Losing all of their RB's contributed to that, at one time they were leading the league in rushing. His is a different set of circumstances, they expect to win with the run and D and him making plays. That's their plan. They didn't plan on their run game going off the rails.

    But I agree with the situation with Prescott. If they capitulate to his contract demands, they better hope they stay the healthiest team in the league. We've seen what it's like with just the RB or WR1 out.

    I think you offer Dak 2 years at 33 mil all guaranteed. Then draft one in 2021 that you think can replace Dak.
    If dak turns that down, put the tag on him that lets other teams make offers. Try and get brady or fitz.

    Sign him $35-$38 range. Tag him and you’ll be staring at $42 million when negotiations come back around....

    Could it be that Seattle defense got old and they let those players go? Offense lost some players too like Beastmode to retirement.

    Make Dak the highest paid QB. It’s time for him to prove he can carry this franchise to a Super Bowl.

    No more excuses . He has a top 10 defense, #1 offense , Fat Mikey and his SB swag to boot.

    Time to sink or swim with our Rookie sensation. Lol

    It’s nice to see the majority of Pollsters agree. Ha
    Pay the man whatever it takes.
