  1. One of my favorite Beatles covers.
  2. John probably put here there as his emotional support animal.
  3. Trending usually means either somebody died or a song was used in a popular show. This is from a really good episode of Brian Johnson's Life On The Road. I'm sure the whole show can be found somewhere.
  4. Niners qb situation is even more completely borked for the start 2023. But they'll probably plug in some spare and he'll take them back to the playoffs.
  5. When Dak got his deal, it was with the idea that he may be a top 5 quarterback, and you either keep him and pay him, or franchise him and piss him off probably end up losing him in a year or two if he turns out worth keeping. It's an awkward position to be in, but it's the reality of NFL salaries. Most teams would have handled Dak and his contract exactly the same way. It's just the way things are existentially slotted for the most part. In the end it was kind of a push. We're still not sure about Dak's ceiling, but his salary is also not going to be as high comparatively as the top 10 as young stars start getting their second contract deals. So he's no longer really overpayed, he's about where he should be, a middle of the road starter with several years left, and with time to keep bringing in qb talent hoping to find the next gem, or he gets played out and the team sucks and you have a higher draft pick to take a pot shot with.
  6. The problem with moving on from Dak is having a better replacement. Mike White probably wouldn't even come back, and every other team will be in a bidding war for his service.
  7. We seem to be in agreement on the most points. As far as the second paragraph that "alternative" is absolutely the point I have been making. The elite qbs are extremely rare. It's extremely unlikely that one will drop in your lap. There are ways to win without them. So do that, instead of everybody crying about not having a Burrow or Mahomes and being stuck with only an above average qb.
  8. You could limit it to top 5, and the success rate is still not that good. But then you still have to get a top 5 draft pick.
  9. Let's make it simpler. How many of these qbs would put the Cowboys in the Superbowl? Whatever your guess would be, it's likely too high. Then how many of them did the Cowboys actually have the opportunity of drafting? Would anyone have given them the opportunity to trade up and at what price, if they even were incredibly lucky enough to pick one of the few that are Superbowl quality? There are 31 other teams that would like to have that crystal ball, because they blew it, too, and most had a far better chance of getting those coveted quarterbacks. ttps://www.insider.com/nfl-draft-first-round-quarterbacks-busts-stars#t22-jordan-love-green-bay-packers-2020-17 WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  12. I get sick of people moaning and groaning about Dak. Stop being a bunch of pussies. Dak is what he is. He's tied for the 8th highest paid QB in the NFL. The Cowboys are currently the 5th or 6th best team in the NFL as it shook out. Dak will be further down the list next year and likely the ensuing years as all the young star qbs get humongous contracts. Dak's salary is what NFL qb salaries are. It comes with the deal. As far as replacing him, go ahead and tell me how the fuck you're going to get a top 3 qb in the league. Every team wants one. They are pretty rare. Just wanting one doesn't make it happen. You either suck so hard that you have a top pick and then get more lucky that the quarterback you draft isn't one of the typical top drafted draft busts and disappointments. There are a lot of them. Only a few of them ever become what they were drafted to be. That's just how it is. The only other way to get one is to get really lucky and draft a quarterback that quite a few teams passed up, yet he turns out to be a far better NFL prospect than anyone imagined. Would you rather have Carson Wince or Jared Goff with a 1 or 2 overall pick than Dak for the 4th round pick they spent in the same fucking draft? All you can do is keep drafting quarterbacks later in the draft, which the Cowboys and every other NFL team should be doing every other year, and hope you get incredibly lucky. Sports fans are some of the stupidest motherfuckers on the planet.
  13. KC is the better team overall. If Mahomes was 90 percent they probably win fairly comfortably. Damn good game as it stood, and added to the drama. Joe will have them back next year with more help on OL and D. Two Texas product quarterbacks in the Superbowl. Flush the fecals.
  14. Dang, passed over by the Panthers and fired by the Cowboys. Regardless of whether Kellen will prove to be a decent NFL offensive mind or not, there needed to be a shakeup.
