  1. Ugh I hate myself for defending him but I dont blame Dak for not accepting $33 million a year. The price of QBs go up every year and he sees that both Wentz and Goff received $33 and $33.5 million respectively. He and his agent would want to top that. The problem with Dallas is that they have waited. What is going to happen once Watson and Mahomes break the bank? I joked around about them paying him $50 million a year, but by the time to get around to doing it and finding out that there are no good replacements for him, they may end up paying close to that number.

    NFC Divisional: Seahawks @ Packers

    Be careful Rodgers! Clowney will try to knock you out of the game.

    This is Andy Reid's Year

    The matchup the NFL is hoping for is Packers-Chiefs. They celebrate their 100 year anniversary only to have the SB be the same two teams in SB1? Marketing gold. Then you have Mahomes and Rodgers and if you have Reid, one of the most respected coaches in the league, win the SB - it would be a gold for the NFL.

    Had The Seahawks Won Sunday Night.....

    No it wouldnt. Not by a long shot. Sorry there is no way in the world the NFL would change their schedule to accommodate another sport, let alone change it for a walk through of all things.

    Had The Seahawks Won Sunday Night.....

    The main factor here is TV ratings, not location, and that is why there is no way in hell that they would have a Friday game to allow a college to have a walk through on Saturday for a Monday game. They would have just played the Saints in the early hour on Saturday, which would still draw a higher rating then the CFP title game. That is also the reason why they play it on a Monday night after the NFL playoffs are over. They know they will have that night to themselves. The 'walk through' would happen on Sunday instead.

    Week 10: Vikings @ Cowboys

    Wait Dallas lost? This cant be true because I was told Dak had super duper clutchiness factor that no other QB possess.

    Concerning DirecTV

    Sigh - PSVUE was the best. I am looking into FuboTV right now as well. It seems like the VPN switching is pretty easy with it. Kind of sucks it does not have ESPN or ABC.
  8. Yes and you know why? It is because Wentz doesnt have every other commercial on TV starring him like Dak. He is not in your face consistently like Dak is. Lurie is also not comparing Wentz to Tom Brady, like Jerry Jones is with Dak. Wentz did not win ROTY over his own teammate that really deserved it. So don't cry me a river about it being so hard to play QB in Dallas because of the media. All of that is completely of Dallas's own creation. Jerry wants all the attention on Dallas so he has constructed a narrative that everyone follows, hook line and sinker. How did Dak end up the spokesperson for so many different products? His agent used being the Dallas Cowboys QB as the selling point and Jerry probably helped push that along. The hardest market to play in is NY but Jerry somehow convinced everyone that it is Dallas. That has been pushed down onto the fans as well. How many times has it been said that Dak is this super clutch player, born with ice in his veins and no worry about ever being down because Dak will come to the rescue? Where was that clutchiness on the 3 loses this year, including the game against the winless Jets when he had a chance to tie the game in his hands? Until Dak can prove he can win without Zeke on the team, he will always be second guessed. This was a narrative created when he struggled without him and one that continued on with Jerry saying that Zeke is the straw that stirs the drink.
  9. Baseball was still known as Americas pastime and Americas game in the 80s and 90s. The NBA also took some eyes away from the NFL in the 80s and early 90s. NFLs popularity surged massively in the mid to late 90s and they havent looked back. A lot of that had to do with the new ownership headed by JJ.
  10. As a football fan and Eagles fan, I dont like him, his team and I think he is a great GM. As a businessman, I have a ton of respect for him. He helped build the NFL into a multi billion dollar franchise that displaced baseball. Have to admire that.
  11. You guys complain about this, but this is completely created by Jerry Jones. He is the one pushing the Cowboys into everyone face every single chance he can get. He is the one that has built this team as one where the fans of the team love them and everyone else despises them. He is the one that is putting his players front and center at every opportunity possible. I mean how many commercials is Dak Prescott in? He is in so many commercials and the guy has yet to appear in the NFCC, let alone appear in a SB or win one. The new darling is Mahomes, but at least there is some reasoning for it other then he plays for a specific team. Other then playing for the Cowboys, what has Dak done to deserve so much air time? So yeah, people are going to criticize the heck out of him on national media, but that is exactly what JJ wants. Any attention is good attention for Jerry.
  12. That cant be true - I was told that Dak has a clutch factor so great that it puts all current and past QBs to shame. That Jerruh is trying to be modest by comparing him to Tom Brady as to keep down the price he has to pay him.

    Jay Gruden let go...

    So does Callahan ruin Haskins now by playing him when he is clearly not ready?
  14. Why is it a jinx to think that Dak deserves $55 million a year?
