    In 2016 the Cowboys were among the worst in the league at 25+ yard pass plays, which was a telling sign. Their leading the league in 10+ yard running plays masked their passing weakness.
    I think you meant to say 2017. We were tied for 3rd in the league in 2017 for number of games in which we had a 25+ yard pass play.

    If you did mean 2016, we were middle of the pack.

    If the excuses continue to pile up, give him the Kirk Cousins treatment.
    You mean franchise?

    Uh, no.

    I think he means let someone else overpay him.

    If we have no better options, sure, and you definitely eventually let someone else overpay him.

    If Dak flounders this year with the OL and RB he has, then you have to conclude there's nothing special about him and draft/sign another QB.

    I agree with the assessment. He needs to at least show signs that he can make reads and utilize second or even third options under duress. He was disappointing at times last season. There were a lot of factors that brought this about not the least of which was a coaching snafu which shoved him in the deep end of the pool to quickly.

    that and the absence of Tyron Smith for the Atlanta game. Pivotal point in Season Two of Dak, the sophomore. He was a changed man after that game.
    It won't be long now.

    The supporting cast around him was all roses and unicorns the previous year, and mostly in 2017 until that point.

    Jerry Jones is determined to break the bank for this guy, so I wonder if his performance in 2018 will actually matter.

    If you can’t, then you suck and don’t deserve playoff success. Not unless you have a great defense.
    Over a season, this equates to 48 plays of 25+ yard pass plays. How many teams had 48 or more last season?

    None. The closest was NE at 41. And, they were the only team over 40.
