    Dal was an idiot turned down 30mil wow he's not worth that

    • tossed but not sunk ss

      When you're making 20 - 30 million a year and bitching about it like it's not enough when the average American makes pretty much 20 - 30 million less than that. If I was an owner and had dak Prescott and he didn't take that offer I would let him play out his rookie contract and move on. Dak can't carry a team with his arm and that's the job. Dak needs top notch players all around him to win and that's a fact. I have never liked dak as a player and for top dollar franchise tag him and trade him , plenty of guys who can win with that line run game wrs and defense.

                They love overpaying the Staffords, Cousins and Garapollos, mannings etc.. they don't even make the playoffs... Pay Zak his money he can run and throw...don't get injured..

                                      Wentz and Dak are middle of the pack QB’s neither one of them is worth 30 million.

                                          It’s good that zeke won’t play the cowboys shouldn’t give dak his contact so when this season ends and zeke didn’t play you’ll see how good dak actually is then pay him

                                              People stupid. The patriots have always had one of the best run games each time they won. Brady the greatest but even he needed a run threat. New England just smart enough to do it with a committee. Less wear on the backs and you don't have to pay on running back a large amount. You look at the team rushing average as a whole and not by one person. The cowboys rushed for more than what Zeke only did. So yeah pay Dak.

                                                  Dak has played three seasons for basically no money compared to other starting QBs rookie contracts. He has stayed healthy and though has struggled with ball placement and releasing on time. He has improved & will only get better with time. He is a proven winner. Dallas needs to find the happy medium and sign him for 33-35 million per year.

                                                    Dak has also played in two playoffs games in his first three seasons and could have made it in the second season. Wentz is okay but he has injuries issues in college and the three seasons he's been in the league. Dak has out played every quarterback that were drafted before him and had he had a quality OC, he would take the Cowboys far into the playoffs.

                                                    Why does everyone focus on money ? Why are they throwing these astronomical salaries around, like its a few dollars? No sports figure should make 30 million anything!! Not when working people can barely pay the bills! We Americans focus on the wrong stuff. It’s time to put phony football to bed. Its all phony and staged anyway, so who cares. It took Peyton Manning 18 years to throw 50 TDs, and some fat, funny looking kid, with a bad hairdo breaks it in his rookie season? By throwing dinky doo check downs and nobody tackles?? Phony as fk!! Stop it! By the way...who in sams blue hell, is Carson Wentz??🤔 And what the hell has he done to deserve ANY amount of money?😐

                                                              Dak is nowhere near elite. How much do you think a free agent Dak would get on the open market? Put Teddy Bridgewater or Jacoby Brissett into Dallas with Zeke, that O line, and that D....they'd be at least as good as Dak, if not better.

                                                                Funny how his list of QBs that can “carry” a team without a running game stop at Brady and Rogers. Yet neither Brady or Rogers the highest paid QB in the NFL. So where’s this energy for guys like Wilson, Ryan, Wentz, Garoppolo, Stafford, Cousins? None of them have shown the ability carry a team with minimal support.

                                                                The argument against paying Dak is complete bullshit. In order for any QB to be successful they need support that’s the nature of the position. I’ve never heard anyone say the key to winning is getting an elite RB. AP was dominate for years yet he couldn’t elevate the play of guys like Christian Ponder.

                                                                The bottom line in today’s in NFL is the buck always stop with the QB. No matter how good the cast around the QB is, if he sucks the team isn’t going anywhere.

                                                                The Cowboys don’t win despite Dak he’s a big reason why they win. Half their Wins(14) were the result of 4QCs/GWDs lead by Dak. He excels with the game on the line. His rushing ability helps open lanes for Zeke because defender have to account for him pulling the ball out and running. He’s the only QB in history with 20+ Passing and 6+ rushing TDs in 3 consecutive seasons. He’s top 5 when it comes to percentage of games played with a 100+ passer rating.. Dak has certainly carried his own!

                                                                I find it funny as hell that in era where the value of the RB has been devalued by everyone, people with a straight face would try to use a RB to devalue the importance of the QB. Until I witness Zeke routinely convert 3rd and long with the game on the line or rush for game winning TDs in overtime with minimal effort from Dak and the passing game than he will never be more valuable to success of team than Dak so stop using him to argue against paying Dak.

                                                                get paid what the market dictates and he’s as much right to go after every dime

                                                                            • RYLAN PIPPEN

                                                                              • Rhonda Parks

                                                                                • Ronald Shiffman
                                                                                  Ronald Shiffman  5 days back

                                                                                  I like Dak Prescott. The point that sometimes gets lost in the debate is not the production of the player. I have no doubt that Dak can win a super bowl for the Cowboys. The point is the money. Today, it seems like $20-25 million a year salary is good money. Not the best money, but good money. Also, it leaves some extra dollars in the kitty for the other 50 team mates like Zeke and Amari, which will help team moral. The problem with fighting for every extra dollar is that if something goes wrong, the Cowboys might be screwed. Dak might not care. He got his. But a top dollar salary hit to cap space is really bad for all the other players on the team, the Cowboy franchise, and the fans.

                                                                              • Brehon Mills -The Stock Investor

                                                                                • ICE H2O
