      You lost me at "Dak's inability to carry Dallas Without Zeke "
      His last for games without Zeke the Cowboys went 4-0
      He is a better QB than Wentz . The stats bear that out . Wentz didn't carry the Eagles to the post season - Foles did . You all are always disrespecting the Cowboys QB . Tony Romo was always hated on , too

        Ha! It does not matter anymore. Donot pay anyone! They donot have to because they will not be in Superbowl contention for the next 7-8 years at least. Everyone (stars) sees that playing for them you won't get paid your worth. Once you get drafted by Cowboys holdout and play for someone else. I would not want to play for them!

            if defense wins championships then you shouldn't bet on your running game to carry you through this the playoffs. Not to say you don't need the running game though but you don't need the crazy best running back in the league sometimes. you just need a running game. I played running back but I throwing passes and trust me I'd rather throw a pass and have to run it. But the reality is you need a running game and a quarterback not a quarterback game and a running back. Okay now make your decisions based on can they work together. And can you afford it. You saw what happened to the NBA and the Golden State Warriors sometimes even big clubs can't afford everything and have to worry about the future. Not just make a bunch of excuses to pick a favorite. Because of that favorites sales and most likely do because their favorites and not the future then someone else will have a future and you can have your favorites. The way the ball bounces

                    Dak is not a franchise Quarter back & I love the cowboys. He got lucky that first year. It's sad that Garret is still the coach & Dak wants more money. He's good enough but not difference maker.

                      Former players will always side with the players in these situations but CC knows that if it was his franchise he would not pay Dak $30+ million no matter what the market says

                        We thought Zeke was bad Dak is worse demanding all this money. When it takes a team to win championships not one person. You paid Dak and Zeke top money you might as well kiss are good defense goodbye.

                                And here I was thinking that Dak was cut from a different piece of cloth.
                                Turns out he's just another silly man.

                                            FRANCHISE TAG DAK at the end of the contract and start looking in the draft he is nothing special

                                                        Suggesting you should pay a RB is one of the most obvious signs that you don't really understand football.

                                                          @d Lamb You do when you're stupid*
                                                          Fixed that for you.

                                                          Picking Elliot in the top 10 was already a monumentally stupid move, and it was called out by anyone who knows football at the time.
                                                          Running the ball is a lot worse than passing the ball in all but 3 situations:
                                                          - When you're ahead at the end of the game and you want to run the clock,
                                                          - When it's third and short, and
                                                          - When you're very close to the endzone.

                                                          Elliot is at best mediocre in those 3 situations, and in every other situation it's just a bad idea to run the ball. I understand you need to run in order to establish play actions and keep the defense guessing, but you're in essence paying a ridiculous amount to a decoy. Plus, RBs are very high risk and very low reward, their impact is nothing (in the running game) compared to your off linemen and tight ends and there really isn't much difference in output between a good running back and an average one.

                                                          To put it simply, paying big bucks to RBs is just ridiculously stupid.

                                                          You do when that running back is the face of your franchise and a top ten pick.

                                                        Well good for you. Cuz at this point and time you are paying for an injury prone QB in Wentz.
                                                        While Dak is still there winning games. And Wentz is on the bench.

That dak isn’t better then this guy or this guy. But when the stats favor Dak. Then they go to the SB ring Wentz clearly didn’t earn that makes it in their eyes Wentz being better. Smh

I’ve seen many cowboy quarterback’s in my life from Roger Staubach Don Meredith Craig Morton Quincy Carter and this guy is nothing but a second string quarterback he wouldn’t be able to hold Troy Aikman’s jockstrap

Irrelevant as it pertains to Dak who's only going into his 4th year and everybody talks like he's been in the league for 7 to 8yrs. The reality is Dak as performed and put his team in position to win games and has taken them to the playoffs twice in the last 3yrs.
