- Reaction score
Can I join the crowd?
the cowboys scored 14 points in the half....gave up 31. so you are complaining why we didn't score 35. 14 is about average for most good teams in the league...you complain about scoring zero points in 2nd quarter I assume. but is expectations that you have to score every quarter of every game? we gave up 200 yards rushing in the first half alone....let that sink in for a second or two....most games if you give up 200 yards rushing, then its a bad game. your defense got owned. ran over. crushed....we did it in FIRST HALF alone.and what did dak do in 1st half?? how many 3 and outs? how many drives for a score?
'all i am saying is in that game baker did a better job than dak.
also people keep saying dak is a good leader, but really he is just good socially , he isnt really a great football leader during games.
he is well liked by other players because of his social skills.
i will give you guys an example
how many times has dak counted the players on defense and got the ball snapped so other team gets a penalty ?.....0
Rodgers does that frequently.
That last play in wc game shows that dak is not a smart leader
are you talking about the garbage defense that gave up 200 yards rushing.....IN A HALF...ok, I am with you on that....the WORST DEFENSE IN NFL HISTORY.Dakko our LEADER only scored 14 pts in the first 3 Quarters of the game??
Not surprising as this happens quite frequently with Dakko at the helm!!!

P.S. The Garbage truck just arrived......late as usual in the 4th Quarter!!
that has nothing to do with fact that dallas could not score at all even a fg in qrt 2 and 3.are you talking about the garbage defense that gave up 200 yards rushing.....IN A HALF...ok, I am with you on that....the WORST DEFENSE IN NFL HISTORY.
yeah but he has had a lot of coaching changes, was glorified too much early on,Lol Mayfield certainly isn't the answer. One of the most overrated QB's of all time.
The browns ran for 300 yards in that game. Yeah. Its Daks fault lol. The Cowboys led by Dak tied that game. Jaylon Smith forgot how to drop on a live ball and the rest is history.ok guys, I never said baker was a better qb, or that dallas should get him, as I know they wont so why discuss it.
I only commented as some were saying dak is better and a better leader.
I wasnt doing a comparison based on one game sample size.
I was just saying that when they met head to head baker did better than dak and won the game, which is the bottom line.
if you look at the scores
CLE 7 24 10 8 49
DAL 14 0 0 24 38
dak and dallas started off good, then I guess cleveland made adjustments, and dak could not score any points for the next 2 qrts !
That is pretty bad by any standards, if dak is top 10 qb, better than baker and a better leader, how could he go scoreless for 2 qrt's?
Some blamed our defense, but if your offense is going 3 and out, not scoring at all, there is a problem with the offense as well.
and this game is when people noticed that dak couldnt score until cleveland was so far ahead they thought they had the game won,
and they let off the gas and let dallas move the ball, but then dallas scored a little too quickly, and it became a game again at very end, until
dak threw a int in ez I think.
I think this is the game where people starting talking about dak doing a lot in garbage time.
valid points indeedI dont know corso, baker won the last game they played.
And as far as Stats go, we all know Dak is the nfl champ when it comes to stats lol.
But really as I keep saying, it is hard to compare QB's or say 1 is better than another.
They all work with diff coaches and players.
If dak used his legs more and slid instead of being tackled, he would not have got hurt, and that added to his overall potential.
Now Dak is mainly a passing qb, and he just isnt that good of a passer. I dont know about baker, as I havent seen him play but like 2-3 games.
The issue here is that dak appears to have peaked 2 years ago and has been very inconsistent . At 42 mil a year, you don't want a maybe at QB. Defenses know how to play him and the good ones almost alwayd beat him. the stats don't tell how many crucial throws he has made. The cowboys have limited options here and Dak and zeke's contracts prevent them from acquiring elite Qbs. Not to mention jerry wont admit Dak is not the guy to take the cowboys to the super bowl. Mayfield has had his ups and downs but have seen him make very difficult throws or plays which i doubt dak does consistently. Not to mention the division dak is in is much easier than the AFC North.I never said Dak was a world beater. Furthermore, this discussion isn't about whether Dak is better than Mahomes, Allen, Rodgers or Brady. It's about whether he's better than Baker Mayfield.
I believe Dak is. I think Dak has his flaws. I have criticized him for them.
But, again, you raised the comparison between Dak and Mayfield
Mayfield has had a better defense, better running backs, better offensive line and arguably better receivers than Dak. In fact, some were suggesting the Browns were simply a quarterback away from the Super Bowl before Baker got to Cleveland. And yet ... Baker hasn't been able to get it done.
And what's so telling is that the Browns are ready to walk away from their No. 1 overall draft pick of the 2018 draft and gamble with Deshaun "Rub Me Right" Watson, who may not see a meaningful snap in quite some time.
The Browns want NOTHING to do with the first overall draft pick at the most important position on the field. And apparently, no other team even wants to sniff him at his current salary, which any team thinking he's worth anything would gladly pay for a $20 million quarterback if he had something, anything.
That's extremely telling about what other franchise and the Browns think of Baker's ability.
For all of Dak's flaws, the Cowboys organization isn't trying to oust him.
I appreciate your thread, but you're wrong on this one, buddy.
your argument is that the cowboys are much worse than the browns and that is why dak should be excused for 1 win in the playoffs in 6 years. The Browns were 1-36 before baker's era by the way.On one hand most here say the running game needs to be fixed to help this offense, then turn around and say "Hey lets get Baker" who couldn't win with a top end running game and a much better defense than we have. Why is logic never involved in a Cowboys QB conversation.
You are too impressed with dak and don't want any discussion about alternatives. I get it.so let me get this straight. he has some of the higher stats, etc..... he has a winning record and if not for 2020, has never had a losing season. and its all because its garbage time stats....losing but collecting stats in losing games...
so how does that go again? you win a lot of games, 13, 12, etc...but you have garbage time stats because you lost a lot of games.....
question and I am really serious. what color is the sky in your world? and how is that Basil you smoked?
