  1. News & Notes: Offseason Edition V.2.0.

    I heard someone the other day ask if there was any profession where you could be as consistently wrong as the weathermen are, and still keep your job. Clarence Hill makes a pretty good case for himself in that category. Maybe Gregory will never play again. But Clarence Hill reporting something novel is just about the most unreliable thing Out there.

    When was the last time a QB of Dak’s pedigree and youth hit the market? Maybe Drew Brees, but Brees wasn’t as good in San Diego as Dak has been with us. It would be pretty unprecedented.

    I do think there is real reason for optimism. Aldon Smith was a true stud. If he's mentally and physically ready (and the Jay Glazer stuff seems to indicate he might be), then I think getting him reinstated is very exciting. I'm still in wait-and-see mode, but I do like our chances of getting at least 1 really solid pass rusher out of Smith or Gregory.
  4. TACT XX: One X Short Of A Good Time - Thanks Corona

    I just bought my first road bicycle. I got it to train for a triathlon. I’m excited, but kind of nervous to try it out... never had to use the clip in shoes or change a tube. Anyone here a biker?

    Dak in 2019 (among QBs who started at least 10 games): Passing yards: 2nd Passing TDs: 4th TD/INT: 13th Completion %: 12th Y/A: 4th ANY/A: 5th QBR: 4th EPA: 3rd The Quarterbacks with more wins than Dak over the last 3 years: Tom Brady Jared Goff Drew Brees Russel Wilson And you can add in Pat Mahommes, Lamar Jackson, and Jimmy Garoppolo, since they will possibly top 27 wins over a 3 year period as starters next season. That still puts Dak at 8th. ---------------------------- So I guess my message for the don't-pay-Dak crowd would be: For those who think Dak is an "average starter", you are not reasonable. You must be unaware of what average NFL quarterback play actually is. By any reasonable analysis, Dak is "above average" at worst. For those who think he's an above average starter, but our future Super Bowl hopes are better letting him walk than paying him $35M/year... well, I disagree, but it's a reasonable debate worth having. But unfortunately your argument is being drowned out by the loonies from the first bullet point.

    Eli was garbage. We can agree on that.
  7. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    Dude, there may be a Giants fan version of TheGame316 out there, but I promise you most of them over there don’t regret giving Eli his second contract.
  8. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    Yup, you’ve got it. “Miracle runs”. That’s what we are banking on.
  9. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    I’m not getting dragged into your straw man arguments. This is not remotely representative of why I think the Cowboys should pay Dak. You said to tell you how the Giants did after they paid their QB. Well, they won a Super Bowl. Lmao.
  10. News and Notes: Offseason Edition

    The Giants won a Super Bowl after giving Eli his first massive contract extension...
  11. For all real-world and practical purposes, it certainly does matter. If I were Dak, I would probably just take the contract on the table. But I don't tell people what to do with their chicken. Dak, like most of us, only has limited windows of leverage in his career, and I cannot blame him for trying to maximize his deal. If he feels like giving up that extra year is a big deal, then he should treat it like a big deal in his negotiations. The Cowboys certainly seem to be treating it as a big deal.
  12. Well, I certainly was wrong about the timeline of him getting paid, but he did have a good season!
  13. I'm not sure what you are referring to explicitly here. I am surprised that they didn't lock him down a long time ago, but I am still not overly concerned about it getting done.

    Especially when you consider that most of the scenarios can be completed without letting Dak walk.

    Nothing. Even several of the biggest Dak haters are saying to “roll over” cap saving. Absolutely priceless, the idea that rolling over cap savings could be viewed as more valuable than Dak.
