Overshown? This hasn't been reported anywhere yet. Not that I have seen.
Reports were last night he had an ACL. However, it hasn’t been confirmed yet. He was walking pretty good after the game last night.

I said this in another thread, I feel better losing someone in a game that counts for the standings then a glorified practice. Losing Romo in the preseason was far more painful than the regular season.
I get it. To me it doesn't matter. It used to, no more. For all of the baby sitting Dak last year, look what happened. Injured in week 1. To me it doesn't matter anymore. They can get injured in practice too. I'm not saying to play these guys all game. Just get them to game speed. I'm not going to worry if they get injured. I feel just as bad whether it is preseason or regular season.

See: Overshown, Demarvion.

It’s pretty clear that McCarthy doesn’t want to risk key players’ health in the preseason.

Agree or disagree. That’s why Dak isn’t playing.
It makes sense but are we always to assume Dak needs kid gloves until his usual game 1 stinker?

Because if Dak gets hurt, there's a huge drop off in quarterback talent. We're not going to win many games with Rush barely passing for just over 100 yards a game.


Radio just created a dumb *** thread.
Guess there’s no drop off with Mahomes or Allen or tua or other legitimately skilled qb’s. Dak ain’t in that group by a mile but you get the point.

Still tearing down our other players to prop Dak?

I'm grateful to have a back QB like cooper. He did fine last year and you still hate him. At least when you have to defend Dak. Use coop!
Hate is a strong word.

Not defending dak. Just acknowledging that our season is lost without him. Without dak, instead of losing in the WC or divisional game....we won't even make it there to lose it.

Sadly, based off rush’ performance last year, you’re dead wrong. But don’t let facts get in the way of your hat sticker mentality.

Just saw that Rodgers is going to be playing the last preseason game now……interesting how these coaches see things so differently

You see Mahomes, Allen and other legitimate qbs playing preseason yet radio is still chewing gum and clapping his hands.
WENTZ 2.0 is afraid he'll look bad in preseason, he'd rather stink it up when the real games start.

Great! We’ll get a higher draft pick to replace him.

But you see...many called for us to tank the season when Dak went down in our first game. Many SAID...not thought or guessed....SWORN AVOWED....our season was plain LOST. Better get a good draft pick out of this LOST season!

Just like you are doing now. They were wrong.

So you are just plain wrong. There is ZERO reason...but your assumption...to assume we win nothing if Dak doesn't play.

You assume we couldn't beat tampa with rush. You...ASSUME....we couldn't beat 9ers with Rush.

See what I am saying.....assumptions. Meanwhile the proof was already in the pudding with Coop. 5-1. Anything else is just your biased cooper hating guesswork.

Dang close to hate if ya ask me (you didn't).

Preseason doesn't matter, so I'm not going to worry about it. I just want them to be game ready by week 1. Not go 0-1 like we did the last two years. Especially last year. We looked like garbage in week 1. Dallas basically used that week to get to game speed.

I can fully understand the decisions made to play Mahomes and Rodgers this preseason but a franchise quarterback like Dak needs to be protected from this preseason nonsense
Save all his INT's for the regular season, right?
