    The number one preseason priority, by a wide margin, is to avoid injuries, especially to starters and key role players. The 49ers failed in this mission, as they suffered five first-half injuries to guys they expect to play a significant role: starters Solomon Thomas and Malcolm Smith and second-stringers TE George Kittle, RB Matt Brieda, and OT Gerry Gilliam. In his postgame presser, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said that Kittle and Brieda both had shoulder injuries that would cause them to miss some time.

    On the other sideline, Marcus Martin, Marqueston Huff, and Marchie Murdock suffered tweaks. The most serious should be Martin’s toe—which, for a man of his girth, could be a long-term issue .The others were considered minor. None of the players in question are roster locks (Martin and Huff are bubble players), so there should be no frantic scouring of the street free agent lists on the part of the Cowboys front office.

    I thought Garrett stated they would be looking to bring in another O lineman in his presser?

    I have said over and over and over and over that Dak can throw deep down the sideline. It's a straight forward throw that requires no read at all beyond one safety.

    It's the between-the-numbers area he struggles. Dak is usually about 2 for 5 in that area, where most quarterbacks are 4 for 5.

    And that wasn't a good throw for him. Sherman picks that with ease. He usually gets that over the top better.

    The writer doesn't understand the criticism of Dak. Of course, this is USA Today, which hits on in about 10% of their stories.

    Wrong. "4 for 5" would be an 80% completion rate. Nobody came close to that from 2016-17.

    For that time frame, the average completion rate between the numbers was actually 65.9%. Prescott's was 66.8%, which put him 15th among the 32 QB with the most attempts targeted to the middle of the field. Jacoby Brissett ranked 32nd at 51.7%, which itself is much higher than the "2 for 5" you were attributing to Dak.

    Maybe you meant short-to-intermediate between the numbers, where the average completion rate goes up to 69.6%. (Still nowhere near the 80% you claimed most QB have.) Dak's was 70.1%, which ranked 13th. Brissett's 53.8% ranked 32nd.

    I'm talking about on target. Not completed.

    Dak puts two on target, and throws three wild pitches.

    Dak's accuracy is not average, its below average when it comes to deep throws.

    Nobody is consistently 4-5 throwing deep in any part of the field. They aren’t even consistently 4-5 including shorter throws. Nobody, ever, completes 80% over anything other than a very short time period. It’s rare even for a single game.

    Dak was number 4 in total QBR last season... That's impressive.

    and yes, he is terrible at throwing deep passes ... so deep passes aren't everything, nor they are nothing. its just an aspect.

    Aikman’s was too. The key for Dak is really if he can hit all the other throws at a high rate, and make the right decisions and be a leader. Those are the things Aikman excelled at, and really what we have to see from Dak. Dak’s timing may have to be slightly better because Aikman had a stronger arm. But I think we also have to understand Dak is still developing, so their may well be improvement inall areas.

    Yep, I am someone who can call out Dak if he is lacking in some area; but still believe he is a good QB.

    All QBs lack in something, and calling them out on that doesn't mean they are terrible QBs, thats just how it goes.

    The superman complex is so annoying; of course all QBs have faults.

    This is obvious fake news because I have been told over and over on this board that Dak is not accurate.
