The Pats have as many wins as the Cowboys. 

That’s what happens when a slew of players opt out for the season and you have no offensive skill position players to speak of. Tom Brady was their offense.

How do you think the teams would have fared last season had our respective QBs swapped teams? My guess is the Pats would’ve gone 6-10 and we would’ve gone 12-4 with a deep run in the playoffs.

Disagree about the records. The Pats had a top ~3 defense last year and won most of their games on the back of it.

Great job at literally undermining the player you claim to covet. In other words, New England fails with our QB, and Dallas would’ve succeeded with theirs.

Just as I said.

Thats literally not what I said at all. I think the records would be near the same if you flip-flopped them. Dak played better than Brady last year; on par at worst. The Pats won games because of their defense. The Cowboys lost games because their defense/special teams/etc. 

Winning in the NFL is most reliant on 1. your QB playing efficient and 2. Your defense making the other teams QB inefficient.  The Pats could do #2, we couldnt.

You see Mahomes have a not so great game, but his defense/special teams are able to do enough/make plays to bail him out. You see it with Jackson, you've seen it with Brady, Rodgers, etc. 

Hasn't really happened for a while here in Dallas.

Desmond King traded to Titans for 6th rd pick per Rap. 
 

LOL

WTF? Why would they not pull the trigger on that?

Last year of his contract. Can pick him up in the offseason maybe.

Would be an immense upgrade over what we have though, and you could get him in the building now and see how he fits.
