    I guess, for the same reason that people who support Dak, bring him up and say, "You payed Romo" as justification as to why the team needs to fork over 40 mil AAV.

    Sam reason Troy was always brought up when anybody ever discussed Romo.

    The Cowboys continue to insist that they’ll keep Dak on the team. He holds even more cards than he did a year ago, given that it will cost the Cowboys $37.4 million to use the franchise tag on Dak again, in cash and cap space. For 2022, the franchise-tag number for Dak would spike to $53.856 million. Keep dragging it out Jerry lol.

    Two years ago, ya that was a reasonable offer. Players demand high teams offer lower, but back then that would have made Prescott the 4 highest paid QB and without getting past the divisional round after just 3 years ya that was reasonable.

    Yeah 30 million a year was never reasonable as you can see by what Goff and Wentz got right afterwards. Rather insulting actually. If that was the deal the yes they played themselves because now if they want him it will be more than that.

    Thats pretty fair imo. The problem though, is that without a true franchise QB your odds of winning anything are significantly less. These guys are so difficult to find I cant imagine letting one in his prime, walk through the doors. The money spent towards Dak is good money. The problem is the other players who have been paid and aren't producing to the level their salary merits. I still don't believe that means you blow it all up. After last off season our roster was supposed to be locked and loaded to make a run. Which makes me think (hope) we can add a handful of defenders and still be one of the more talented teams top to bottom. In any case if we do part ways with Dak we must find a way to receive compensation. The only scenario I can not tolerate is losing him, without compensation.

    You're talking about the first 2 picks in the draft and then a 4th rounder. Even sportswriters brought that up. Right now I think Prescott is clearly better than both of those but after the 2018 season Goff and Wentz were on teams that went to the Super Bowl. Wentz got a contract for 32 mil and Goff got one for 33 mil so based on those two going 1 and 2 in the same draft Prescott went in the 4th round, yes 30 mil for Prescott was a fair offer.

    Draft status has absolutely nothing to do with the contracts those guys got. Sportswriters have no idea what they're talking about if they said that. You can't use that "Super Bowl" argument when Wentz didn't play in the playoffs. You can use it for Goff but anyone with eyes and a mind knows he was along for the ride I mean the Rams even admitted as much by letting him go.

    30 million was not fair and that's why he didn't accept it and that's why the Cowboys offered it. They tried to Jaylon Smith him and Jay Ratliff him.....but naw you can't do that with quarterback.

    If anything, that's a reason WHY Dak SHOULD be paid more than Wentz and Goff. They were drafted ahead of Dak, yet Dak has outperformed BOTH of them. Thus, $30 mil is garbage compared to the $33-35 mil that Wentz and Goff are getting paid. Dak should be getting about $35-37mil.

    This, to me, is completely wrong. To me, this only shows why you don't do deals like the ones Philly and the Rams did. BTW, same agent, both of those guys.

    There is a easier way. Sign Dalton to a team friendly deal. Tag Dak again and trade him. Use that draft capital to draft a young QB with potential and and draft heavy on defense.

    No, it's Ryan Tollner, Rep1Sports. Both Wentz and Goff, as well as Roethlisberger, are represented by that agent and agency.

    Oooooh, ok! Still, I think $35-37 mil is reasonable for Dak. Especially with the QB market and with him being one of the top QBs in the league.

    Thanks for the common sense. It is NOT Dak hating to wonder if he'll come back from this injury good as new. He might be. Or he might not be the same anymore. That's why I want the team to draft a QB and let them compete in training camp. If Dak is back in top form and wins the starting job, great. On the other hand, if the new guy wins the starting job, then that's whom you go with. It's a meritocracy. That's how Dak won the job from Romo. He came in and played way better than expected and earned the starting job. In football, you can't be sentimental. You go with whomever gives you the best chance to win right then. That's not hating on Dak any more than it was hating on Romo back in 2016 if you said the team should keep letting Dak start even though Romo was healthy again.

    Insulting? The other two Quarterbacks played for teams that reached the Superbowl. I appreciate that a QB cannot completely carry a team to a Superbowl as evidenced by Aaron Rodgers but he has still taken a few fairly rank teams to the NFC Championship games. Prescott hasn't played on a bad team excluding this season where he was injured any way.

    In the modern game a QB will execute some difficult throws at some point to help their team reach a Superbowl - whether that's during the regular season to help the team finish with a higher seeding and/or in the play offs itself.

    Further, at the time the contracts were offered Wentz and Goff were in a far better place than they are now e.g. Wentz actually had an o line.

    Is he even walking normally and with ease yet?

    That's not a cheap shot but a genuine question. Not long until the draft.

    Only at the Cowboyszone is it the QB’s fault that we had one of the worst defenses in nfl history. Or we were dead last in takeaways since 2010. Or that we haven’t had a kick return for a touchdown in eleven years. Ahh hell covid is Dak’s fault too!
