    We have a different idea of what "success" is I suppose.

    Wait until you see what Burrow and Herbert get. We can then re visit this.

    Saddest part about Dak and Romo is that Jerry pretty much lucked into both of those guys. Romo wasn't even drafted and Dak was a 4th rounder, neither were thought of as possible long term starters, Pro Bowlers, etc.

    If we get a good Defense we will be able to make a deeper run.. I still think if we went after garapilo more in that playoff game we would have had a better chance of winning. We let him stand back there.

    The Jones boys have convinced themselves they're "close" for 15 years, first with Romo and now with Dak. They're not going to move on from a 30 year old QB in 2024 unless his play drops off significantly. They'll keep convincing themselves that they're not far away, and we'll keep getting what we've been getting.

    It may be sooner I don't see 49 mill cap space hit flying in Dallas, If Dak is restructured next year into the voidable years Dak is here to stay playoff and big chokes doesn't matter Dak is Jerry's QB because he drafted him and paid him. FO will keep dooming the Cowboys for years to come and more important that the players is the low end low IQ HC's the last 10 years.

    At least post the whole thing. If we "get out" after 2023 we have still $40M in dead money to deal with. Dak isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but if he is it's not until at least a year later than that

    No, Jethro has redefined what success is . And Dak is enough to provide it. Much like Romo was.

    I agree with the rest of your post, which I believe to be the most likely outcome. It's this part that caught my attention.

    There's really only two ways to draft a high profile QB. Suck so bad that you're picking high. Or trade a high profile player for a first, package this two along with one from the next year, and you can move up from the teens.

    Let's see what the Eagles do next year. And they'll probably be picking in the low 20s.

    That's what Jerry would say.

    Unfortunately his opinion or thoughts is all that matters since our course of action is going to be based on it.

    If you dont grasp what drives our owner passions then going to be difficult to see his direction and intent .

    That is the understatement of this forum.

    There are ‘the ring is the thing” fans which are the most frustrated and then there are fans like me that as long as their competitive, I am OK.

    MC, the difference is I have let the reality of who runs this team shape my expectations and left my Cowboys entitlement behind years ago.

    I watch the games to see them play, not to win as I used to do. Some accuse me of lowering my expectations to meet the circumstance and I completely agree with that but I am not as frustrated a fan as they are.

    I call it accepting what is and what is not likely to be. And so far, I am batting 1000%.

    I know what you're saying. But it's still not going to be 50% of the cap. I think teams would be willing to absorb 25%, but once you start getting into the 30s and 40s, there's no longer a reason to pay the QB.

    I’m not a Dak lover but I do enjoy reading your comments and seeing that your so clouded with your judgement that you can’t even make a comment without it being about Dak.
    I hope Jerry does sign him another 10 years just so I can continue to see you and the other Dak haters squirm.
    GO Cowboys!

    It makes me wonder how many QBs are out there that were just never given a chance? Does Brady or Kurt Warner ever play if their starters don't go down?

    The Cowboys just took a random shot in the 4th and got lucky?
