    it took the defense the better part of a quarter and a half to adjust to the ram's tight formation offense. but eventually they did. grade.....C-. the offensive game play was sound, but terrence steele just couldn't handle aaron donald who wrecked the offensive line. over and over. in truth, it didn't matter where donald lined up, he had a dominating performace. still, we had the lead at the half and ended up losing a one possession game. grade.....B. the 4th and 3 call is entirely on mac. poor decision, imo. the great landry often said you take the points when they're there. that decision gets an F. so much for coaching. could have been better, but wasn't the end of the world stuff.

    He didn't lose us the game yesterday. Coaching yesterday was a problem that I thought we addressed by getting rid of Garrett. Only one game and Rams are one of the worst teams to start off against. No pre-season tape on them didn't help either. I have faith in the coaching staff and this team that we will play better.

    Dak wasn't the reason why we lost. But nor did he earn is $31 million either.

    We could have lost with Andy Dalton at $7 million, and used the other $24 million on some other players ...

    Except he doesn't want the market rate. If he did they would have already signed him.

    I already said he wasn't the sole reason we lost the game but he certainly didn't do anything to help win it either. That's the difference between a guy like Dak and a Mahomes or Brady or Brees - Dak isn't the guy you are going to lean on to drive the team to a victory.

    That is Dak Prescott.. Unless we are playing a terrible team then he balls out.

    It's early so hopefully we see some progression but he is a caretaker QB that some fans think is a top 5 QB lol.

    If Andy Dalton started for us yesterday I guarantee we get similar results.

    I have a grip.

    I've watched enough football to know that Dallas needs a serious sense of urgency if last night was the brand of football they think they are going to be able to play at a high level.

    This is coin flip football. 8-8 / 9-7 brand.

    The reality is that the answer at QB isn't on the team right now, you aren't going to win anything meaningful with the amount of average we have at the position.

    Looked like the same old team to me. Dak/Gallup made a play that could've won the game but of course the Refs have to insert themselves. My biggest problem though, was that the Defense got absolutely trucked in the first quarter. The Rams pretty much won the game in the first quarter.. The Defense looked totally unprepared and sadly that is normal for this franchise. I said it in the game thread, I am just so sick of poor defensive football by this organization. It's ridiculous, it just seems like that particular unit can never come out and dominate. I mean there are other issues and this is just game 1 but the Defense should've looked a lot better than the offense especially early. I thought it was embarrassing. I just don't get it. Very frustrating.

    Nope, he just wanted the market rate over 4 years, not 5. This is old news.

    Rams got to a Super Bowl with Jared Goff.

    Dak is fine but coaching needs to step up and they need to stop pretending like they have a special player at QB when he is just a high end care taker.

    Fat Mike could've stayed at home and it wouldn't have changed a thing.

    Nolan has always been a crap hire.

    Pretty much nailed it for me. And although I love the lamb pick, this is the result when you keep using picks on offense instead of defense. And Zeke ran all over them yesterday, but it means nothing if you cant stop the other team.

    honestly, with this type of defense we do need a mahomes just to do anything.

    What was Nolan supposed to do about the DT's getting pushed 2 yards down the field on every play? What was he supposed to do about his linebackers and safeties looking like a deer in headlights?

    This defense is simply not talented enough. Go get Papa hallas out of the grave. He isn't turning this unit into anything.

    Because he plays every game with disruptive power and makes plays each and every game. Thus he deserved to be the highest paid interior DL in the game. However, he ONLY makes $1.5 mil more a year than our over bloated Lawrence hahahaha. The question I want to ask is why does Lawrence make so much money? Does he come to play every game and disrupt every game he plays in? Does he impact a game like Donald does? If he were close than perhaps making $1.5 mil less per year would be warranted but Lawrence is not even in the same city block as Donald in terms to playmaking and disruption. Lawrence is an albatross to our team and makes way too much money for what he produces.
