CFZ You are the GM. If you replace Dak next year, who is the improvement?

Doesn't mean anything. Look at the QBs taken in 2016.
Yes so let's just keep not trying because it's worked out so well for the last 30 years
Enough with the dumpster diving
I don't care how much you have to pay dak to sit on the bench I'd rather have a kid starting that has some promise.

I tell my scouts to find the QB with the highest upside in the draft that we realistically have a chance of getting with our number one pick, and then let him learn behind Dak for a year or learn on the job if Dak asks for a trade when we spend a number one on a QB

Yeah, let's not try to get a better QB because 20 years ago we had a slew of bad ones.
We have a top 10 QB, some still think the grass is greener. Maybe we can also draft a Unicorn!

I bet you also complain about Dak's salary.

So suppose for a second Big Mac went ‘LA Rams’ on Dak and shocked the world by trading his franchise QB because he knew the person he was getting was far better? And remember, the goal is next year to win it all.

Are there any Staffords left? Borderline elite QBs with cap friendly contracts? All quarterbacks signed after Dak are going to seriously hurt any team that trade them away no matter what we offered them. Teams don’t just give away franchise quarterbacks.

Biggest name free agent is probably Lamar Jackson? Would you give him the giant contract the Ravens won’t…. And can the team even afford it?

Cooper’s days are at an end if this is how our defense plays now. Frustrating that last year at the halfway point the NFL figured out our top 3 offense, this year it’s the top 3 defense.

You can spend a top draft pick but now you’re going to have to wait for development. Better make sure there is another solid running back too, because Zeke won’t be around with that salary.

And if you’re feeling like a gambler, are you going to see if you’re the next team to find a Geno Smith? Who is that next guy who rises from the bench into stardom?
As an NFL GM you would know it’s not possible

Well, we just witnessed Tampa and LA win Super Bowls signing older veteran QBs. How about Aaron Rodgers? I bet GB would trade him for a few first round picks. Not only does that give us a better QB, it also takes him out of our way. You put Rodgers in this offense with this defense........ instant NFC favorites.
Agree.

Realistically what would the salary cap hit be over the next few seasons if Prescott was traded to a team like the Saints or Falcons?

Stafford's not borderline anything, 17 INTs mistakes all this year that Defense bailed him out, Kupp bailed him out, scheme bailed him out., looks like Lion Stafford to me hit the lottery got to pay with that rams team ALL IN.dak would have also made the SB with the rams, why because so DID GOFF!! , Staffords in the same tier as dak , lmao lost me at first line..im OUT!

other teams see Dak as an upgrade that the issue here in Dallas , turs always greener huh. Need a savior to offset TEAM Issues!! Defense played horrible its dak he couldn't score more!!

At this point we are married to Dak:
We'd have better luck finding a good #1 WR and very disruptive DT.
We also need LB's to replace Micah so he can transition to full time rusher.

The main thing I would say if we draft, enough of the value pics. We experimented with Romo and now Prescott. You could even say we did the same with Danny White who at least made if to the NFC championships. But timeto return to the Cowboys Super Bowl winning proven method of first round franchise QBs and get an Aikman. Staubach wasn’t drafted early but he was a Heisman Trophy winner and if not for the service, definitely would’ve been drafted extremely high also.
Danny whites TEAM Made it..

Drake Maye will be the next great NFL QB if he stays healthy. The great one’s contract has our hands tied right now. JJ and Co. better go all in in 2024.
