    Fans fall for nedia BS like that all the time. This very site had created the fing Cult of Dak for Pete’s sakes.
    Yup

    Yep, there was a beautiful chemistry going with the team last year. Dak complimented Zeke and this offensive line perfectly. You don't mess with that. Although it's funny that some people still can't let that go.

    Not one that listened to Denzel Washington interviews about Dak.

    No one knew Dakís limitations more than Garrett, but he loved Dak because Dak listened to him. Hell, Dak had little choice, unlike 14 year vet Romo.

    And to say Romo would get injured is not playing the odds. His collarbone was healed. Also his back. At worst, you still have Dak to swoop in.

    Green Bay put Dallas behind the 8-ball right away because the Cowboys failed to possess the ball for most of their first three drives. You can blame the Butler confusion penalty all you want, but Dak missed throws and most importantly wasnít pressured.

    The pick was utterly ridiculous, and some people had the audacity to blame it on Garrett.

    Iím no fan of RHG, but he did not throw that stupid pick. Zeke had 122 yards rushing, and did not fumble the game away like Murray.
    The Butler penalty was an atrocity. You also forget the TD to Witten where the LBer tackled him right in front of the ref who let it slide. That was 11 points off the board. We got rooked hard in that game.

    Excuses. We’ve recovered from negative plays before. We did it all last season— in the regular season. We once came back from 1st and 30. Again, that was the regular season.

    This post was all about media narratives, which you are basically quoting. It's this story-based thinking that has taken over many things in life like most politics or weak football teams like Dallas.

    That offensive line was the best anyone has ever seen. They blocked freakishly well. Somehow Romo being thrown in makes that fall apart? This is your supposed logic. But the power of the media story, the "chemistry" and "you don't mess with that" or the "Romo can't last two plays without an injury" communal rationales utterly sapped logic.

    The great coaches, Parcells and Belichick, ignored the media and set their own rationale based on football knowledge.

    The media narrative has shifted to Carson Wentz now. Eagles fans are looking at him through the same lenses bamboozled Cowboys fans were at Dak last year.

    This year a new and opposite "Dak's been exposed" narrative started, and tons of fans have embraced it. It's stupid and far from the truth which is well in between.

    The reason Dallas started strong and fell on their face is because their depth isn’t as good as it should be. The starters are very capable but their backups just aren’t up to par in a lot of the key positions.

    Yep, but the narrative is that "Dak's been exposed."

    Oh yeah. He is an inexperienced QB with a great up side.

    Zeke is like the spark plug on offense. Without him it's like our offense has no passion or fire unless Dez gets going.

    He is the spark plug, the gas pedal, the ignition, the actual key, and the gas...

    It's sad that we need a hype man but he definitely is infectious to the guys around him.
