  1. Dak Prescott 2018 Outlook

    Actually and unfortunately, Dak is the very reason JG is still around. Dak is a career killer? I surely hope you aren't saying Dak has killed JG's career? If so, that is laughable. No one is better at getting in their own way better then Jason Garrett. Cowboy fans can thank an 11 game winning streak and a 13-3 record in 2016 for the continued crap fest that is the JG era. Heck while we are at it, lets thank Tony Romo and his shoulders/ back as a key contributor as well. : ) Not sure Dak ever gets his shot if good Ol' Tony isn't trying to run for first downs in PRESEASON! Garrett's butt should have been fired after the multiple 8-8 seasons, and yet one 12 win season and another 13 win season two years later saved him. Dak is flat out terrible, but please lets not pretend Dak is a career or coach killer, esp if its pointed JG's direction. JG is a very poor coach from the top, down. Anyone paying a shred of attention should see that, going even back to the Romo days. The entire Cowboys organization has underachieved for 20+ years, JG i'd say is near the top of the list as a key contributor. We all know Jerry sits at the very top of the true failures in Dallas. I have little hope Dak can pull this back together as a productive NFL QB, but i'd like to see JG/Linehan out the door first. It has to start there. Dak is on the books in 2019 for his last cheap year. My belief is Jerry is only backing him as of today bc he simply knows Dak will be here next year, hopefully under a new staff to see if any sort of improvement can be made. If Dak is as bad next year as he is the past two, i don't think he gets his extension. Just my gut feeling.

    can't get the gif to load but....... Cowboys got beat by Jay Gruden on Sunday, then John Gruden on Monday...LOL. oh Jerry.
  3. Tyler Lockett 2018 Outlook

    Agree, laughable contract and guaranteed amount IMO. Esp for a team that has far more pressing needs then over paying a WR like Lockett. He's not a 20 mil guaranteed player to this point.

    yea, if only Dak had the awesome Redskins WR group, then he would be....oh wait. They suck too. Move along and enjoy your 6-10 season.
  5. 2018 Tight End Rankings and Discussion

    Blake Jarwin i'd keep an eye on or stash in a deep league. I think the Cowboys use a combo of Swaim/Jarwin to start this season but i like Jarwin's ability in the passing game more and Dak and Jarwin have connected a lot this camp and even preseason

I like Archer a good bit and he's a source i follow for the Cowboys. Its from two days ago and it simply scratched the surface here from someone with experience dealing with Gullian Barre syndrome. I found it interesting and worrisome
  7. Ezekiel Elliott 2018 Outlook

    definitely worrisome and good update. I did not hear that earlier as i can't stand to listen to either of Golic or Wingo lol. I've also read a huge part of this recovery could be how early this is being detected for Frederick. I hope for the best for Frederick. Sad to see this happen to anyone, let alone a really stand up guy and captain like Frederick. One thing i will point out for Fredericks replacement, Joe Looney...........he's a better run blocker then he is a pass blocker. He's got plenty of power and can get downhill well, but he's not nearly as good at protection schemes or his overall pass blocking. This type of loss for Dallas up front worry's me more for Dak and a passing game built on timing, then it does Zeke and this OL getting downhill. Dak and these young gun WR's need a clean pocket, i could see break downs in the interior OL between Looney/Williams. Zach Martin, Collins, and Tyron are going to really have to step up, stay healthy, and shoulder a heavy load for Dallas to make this work, IMO. Fingers Crossed
  8. Rishard Matthews 2018 Outlook

    i'd say he's worth a shot later in drafts. That depth chart is thin beyond Taylor/Davis, so i think they need Matthews to contribute. I've thought he's shown well at times when healthy. May take some patience but he's a nice bench stash that could be a nice plug and play

  15. Ezekiel Elliott 2018 Outlook

    fair enough, I'm well aware of the prospect that Saquon is and he looks to be a dang fine player. Never said he wasn't. I think you are simply trying to pump up Saquon, without hesitation as you say, without even considering their OL could be an issue. Which as i said, IMO, i believe it could. I don't think Zeke is nearly as far down as a talent or a prospect compared to Saquon and more importantly, i've seen Zeke do work as a #1 RB level in the NFL. Something i've yet to see from Saquon. So all in all, pick your risk as you will and good luck to ya i say. All three of these RBs we are discussing are very very good players. I don't doubt that. But if you're going to question the Dallas OL and knock Zeke down a tier, yet somehow dismiss the Giants issues, i don't follow that line of thinking. I especially don't view Saquon and his OL as a player or situation that I'm taking over Zeke without hesitation. Saquon and that OL haven't proven anything yet.
