  1. Should the Cowboys TRADE Dak?

    Yep they're not winning anything until Jerry pegs it. He has been the very reason they have won nothing since Jimmy Johnson was HC. (p.s. Switzer doesn't count as that was Johnsons team)
  2. Should the Cowboys TRADE Dak?

    Well I'll throw the cat among the pigeons here and say that Wentz plays with more heart than Dak.
  3. Should the Cowboys TRADE Dak?

    I hear you. His stat line for last year was impressive indeed but I did qualify it with an 'if anything'. I'm thinking more along the lines of getting him to take the offense by the scruff of its neck, and drag them to winning games against the better teams in the conference, with an attitude that the rest of the offense latches on to. That seemed to be what was lacking with the Cowboys last season, that intensity you see in teams with less talent. They looked like they needed a fire lit up their arse, and maybe McCarthy and his staff will bring that. So tagging Dak might keep him motivated for that longer term deal he hopes for.
  4. Should the Cowboys TRADE Dak?

    If someone asked me can the Cowboys get to the big game with Dak I would have to say not unless they upgrade their defense and make it dominant (like my Niners did incidentally). Because he is a very solid QB and their running game is good. But they can only upgrade their defense through a combo of a couple of very good drafts (and just how often does that happen) AND the ability to pick up a really worthwhile free agent or two, and they probably can't do the latter if they are hamstrung by a whopping great contract for Dak for the next few years. Even though I think they should trade Dak for the above reasons (draft and free agency), I have to believe Jerry Jones hired Mike McCarthy to try to get the best out of Dak. So they'll probably tag him for this coming season (and the next?) to see just what extra if anything their new head coach can get out of him. On a separate but connected note to this thread, maybe the more relevant question for Cowboy fans is how are you going to get your defense to the next level because that's what you'll need if you're going to be the NFC representative at the Super Bowl.
  5. Where does Andy Dalton end up?

    Lol. In the same cell as Antonio Brown.
  6. Where does Andy Dalton end up?

    If Dalton goes to Chicago their O line will get him killed as he's just not mobile enough.. Much better chance of success under Arians with the Bucs O line and Evans and Godwin. Stronger possibility he stays put as I don't know if they'll get that much for him in trade value and Burrow will imo need someone to guide him especially his rookie year.
  7. Biggest non-QB bust?

    I had completely forgotten about him. What a headcase.

    Thanks for these two breakdowns even though they were agony to watch.
  10. Jimmy G is a bum and over rated

    Chris Jones was the Super Bowl MVP. If it wasn't for him my Niners would likely have won. With Williams a close second in the MVP ballot IMO. Those two players contributions will sadly be lost as history unfolds and the NFL concentrates on reminding everyone that Mahomes did it all on his own. Congrats on your win by the way (said through severely gritted teeth).
  11. How many Super Bowls did you watch?

    That my friend is a wonderful story, thank you for sharing. I've been watching since Da Bears killed the Pats in XX. My army buddies got me watching it during the playoffs for that season and I was mesmerised. Some guy I'd never heard of called Joe Montana was getting killed by the Giants D line. But I really admired this guy Montana who kept getting up despite the beating. So I thought I'd root for the underdog and became a 49er fan there and then. How little did I realise how fortunate my choice of team was.
  12. SUPER BOWL LIV 49ers/Chiefs GAMEDAY thread

    I can't remember a single game where no offensive holding penalties were called on the O lines of both teams. This was one of the factors that allowed Mahomes to make completions late in the game. Dont get me wrong, we blew it when we really had it in the bag. But the NFL wanted Mahomes to win this and get the MVP and the complete absence of holding calls on the O lines contributed to this. If you make no calls on either team it can easily look impartial. The NFL were banking on their boy coming through at some point and they must have been sweating bullets before the comeback because we had him completely confused till then. He's a terrific QB and Mahomes shirt was by far the biggest seller in the leagues merchandise and the NFL really wanted /needed this because he's the future face of the league and that means income for them. I've never believed in fixes before but to me this was glaringly obvious an advantage that was gifted and designed for him to succeed and to protect the possibility that we could make him look ordinary which we did for nearly the whole game. Congrats to the Chiefs but we gave this away right at the end. And yes I too can't wait to see Hurd play for us.
  13. SUPER BOWL LIV 49ers/Chiefs GAMEDAY thread

    I'm done it's 3.30am over here and I'm just so hacked off that I couldn't even witness the demise at the end. I suppose I should be grateful. We still have a great and quite young team in most positions. Getting back to another one is going to be a mountain of a climb. Talking with you all however is a blessing. Night guys. Speak soon. Commiserations to all of you.
  14. SUPER BOWL LIV 49ers/Chiefs GAMEDAY thread

    Haven't seen that play yet, must've been agonising to watch.
  15. SUPER BOWL LIV 49ers/Chiefs GAMEDAY thread

    Honestly the best team didn't win, we just gave it away to them. Mahomes was crap most of the game and didn't know how to get past us and then we just didn't get it done at the end. I'm sure they'll make him the MVP. They've been sucking him off all week. Maybe that explains why his play was so weak after all. Congrats to the Chiefs fans and their team though, they've had a long wait for this and Andy Reid finally wins it so I'm happy for him I think.
