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

    Yeah I have hard time seeing how CLE gets more than a late Day 3 pick for Njoku, it’s not like he’s done much as a pro. Pretty sure he’s been on the verge of being cut outright at times- maybe it was just Rosenhaus leaking that, but still
  2. Full Team Fantasy Draft (Discussion Thread)

    Remember when we kicked everyone's butts at this on the old forum Back to back OTs in the 2nd-3rd rounds is a major woof too. Threshold position, just need a baseline level of competence or you'll see diminishing marginal returrns.

    Lmfao. I knew this Danny before I clicked the link, he’s such a ridiculous homer It’s our best safety tandem since the 2000s but Woods and HHCD are only decent at best. edit: well I didn’t realize this was coming from PFF but I’m still not buying it. They’re both massive liabilities against the run. Front 7 is gonna have to play a lot better with the back end presumably having to run more Cover 2
  4. I don’t think Dak “gave up his leverage” with this decision at all. Dallas wasn’t afraid of him holding out of camp, that was never going to happen. They don’t want to have to tag him again and he’s telling them he’s comfortable letting that happen

    Salute to a class act and genius. I’d wish him good luck, but he clearly doesn’t need it. Man graduated in less than four years with a computer science degree while being a full-time starter for a D1 college football program. I can’t even imagine. It sucks to lose him, but you can’t help but his respect his decision and especially his reason for it- that he knew he’d never again reach his own personal standards and wanted to move on to other walks of life where he could. Tyron may be one of the most impressive specimens to play in the NFL, and Martin may be the guy who pushed our OL over the top, but one could easily argue that Fredbeard was the most transformative player on the OL for Dallas. The immediate stability he provided at C helped take us from a laughable OL in 2012 to a pretty good one in 2013. He made everyone’s jobs easier, there’s no doubt about it. Once more, cheers to one of the greatest players to don the star in my relatively short time as a fan.

    I don't know that accidental is the right descriptor. I might go with "unconscious" We all have cognitive biases borne from our upbringings and biological "fight or flight" self-preservation instincts. The important thing is to recognize and fight them.

  8. Press and media are different though and that's too much nuance for most You can hate CNN or NBC or FOX or do whatever floats your boat, but journalists getting shot by LEO in this country is... new.
  9. This topic would be better with hot bacon grease shot into its eyes
  10. Attaching your username to half of this thread's pages is for losers
  11. That’s not exactly what that stat says tbh. It’s more like the team was just a bunch of frontrunners and you could tell how the rest of the game was going to go by the end of the first quarter. It’s mostly an indictment on the coaching staff imo
  12. That’s most certainly not what that is edit: looks like record in games where the opposition scores 30. Now there’s a genuinely worthless statistic
  13. Rumor: Cowboys Locked In on Adams

    Not technically true, Dallas would only pay $3.5M against the cap for Adams in 2020. We’d obviously need more room to get through the next seven months though

  15. I don't even know why we're mentioning Stafford, who went from 0 playoff wins on his first contract, to 0 on his second contract, to now 0 on his third. Like people are dismissing Dak as garbage time aficionado off one 8-8 year when this guy straight up threw for 5000 yards on a 4-12 team I mean on one hand, he and his contract and lack of real success have nothing to do with this conversation, but on the other I really feel like that guy's pretty much the opposite of Dak in a lot of ways. He's "so underrated" per so many neutral fans because he's on the damn Lions and we want to pity them and their fans, when he's just been a borderline Top 10 QB for a while and would have a playoff win against Dallas if he were better at his job of playing quarterback, whereas with Dak people are unable to compartmentalize their hatred for our team and all the attention they get with a natural predisposition to get caught in the lights and overrate the surrounding talent on the team, and just try to assess Dak independent of all that.
