DAK IS ON CRACK
(DAK PRESCOTT & ANDY DALTON)
BEAST DOME NATION.
There is no doubt that Dak Prescott is the reason Tony Romo is no longer a QB in the NFL. With the Cowboys falling in love with their future, and Romo barely healthy, the Cowboys decided that Dak is their guy and Romo can leave the game.
Only a few years later Romo becomes the Highest Paid Announcer in the History of the NFL, while Dak is trying to negotiate a contract that will make him one of the richest QBs in the NFL. Usually when someone offers a QB $150 Million/5 Years, they have done something to deserve that amount. So far Dak in his young career has won only a single playoff game, and that is about it. A breakout season in 2019 which featured a career-high 30 TDs and 4900 yards has his ego through the roof, but let us remember an important point. The Cowboys did not even make the playoffs last season.
Dak was offered a contract that would pay him $30 Million a year, Dak wants $35 or maybe even more. Russell Wilson is currently paid $35 Million the highest paid QB in the NFL. Both are overpriced if you ask me. Andy Dalton comes over from the Bengals for $1 Million, and quite frankly, the Cowboys would have been smarter to take a chance on Jameis Winston and let Dak go. Now the Cowboys are in an interesting spot. They can either play into the ego of Dak Prescott, or try to win with Andy Dalton. Both sound like bad situations.
If I am Jerry Jones I let Dak walk. Dak is at the point of his career where Colin Kaepernick was. A great athletic QB with big upside, but also a QB that has not done enough to prove to be the Franchise QB for a generation to come. Let us not forget, Colin Kaepernick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl at least. Dak is turning 27 this summer, if he plays his cards right he could get two more massive contracts and potentially have a Hall of Fame career, if he can win a few rings in that time.
For now, Dak is a cry baby who wants to be paid like a Hall of Famer, when he never has done enough to even win the Cowboys demanding fan base over. The Cowboys are better off investing that $150 Million in a future Franchise QB, Andy Dalton has a lot to prove after being let down by the Bengals D in his prime, and a new offense with new exciting weapons can let Dalton explore his true inner Red Rifle.
