Last year:
Baker - 27 TD’s / 14 INT’s (93 QB Rating)

Ryan 35 TD’s / 7 INTS (108 QB rating)

But Baker is a tier above Ryan? Jimmy G with 17 TD’s / 8 INTS in his career on the same level.....

I’d put Dak tier 3/4 and worth no where close to 30 million.
That was just off the top of my head but yeah Matt Ryan should be in tier 2. He's put up some good numbers.

My point is that Dak is closer to Derek Carr or Andy Dalton than he is Drew Brees or Patrick Mahomes. Dak is a decent QB who can help you win games if he has enough talent around him.

Some QBs elevate the surrounding talent. Some QBs need the surrounding talent to elevate them. Nothing wrong with that. A lot of QBs fall into that category. But is that worth 30-40 mill per? We'll see.

He's not a $40 million a year QB.

Dak didn't even perform until they got Cooper added to the fold and the Dallas offense struggled mightily until Coopers arrival...Dak would have to put together a deep playoff season for the Cowboys to be comfortable enough to pay that.
I don't think hes a 20mil a year qb. Brees and Brady are both playing for 25. Their age, desire to win and total career earnings obviously play a role in this. But Dak isn't half the QB Brady is. I can't see how they can be competitive paying that man 30 mil a year.

I don't think they can remain competitive giving him that kind of mega deal. They have a great young defense but it will be difficult to keep that defense together if they tie up that much money in Dak. Not to mention the huge deals Zeke and Cooper will get.

Even die hard Cowboys fans have to be nervous right now. There's just no upside to this deal.

Dak's a 3rd tier QB, probably worth 25M. QB's keep improving up in their 30's, so he could some day become a tier 1 of 2 QB, but not now.

Let him have it! With no problem. Haven't seen his spot in 20 years. Now I gotta go to youtube and find the old Rosenberg commercials. "1825 Tuuuulane".
Wow! I have not lived in New Orleans for over 50 years and I STILL remember that advertisement!!!

Funny you chose the “less than 75 yards stat.” Zeke had exactly 75 when they beat us last year.
SEE?! The proof is in the pudding! If only we could’ve held him to one less yard! We were so close to victory!

:hihi:

This is not the way to look at it
We ALSO want them to give zeke the moon and have them fight over it
That is true too!

So Dez Bryant said this yesterday,
Test that man for CTE.

I think the cowgirls should make him the highest paid player ever with 50 mil a year. maybe 60. even though it is false, that contract would screw up any team's salary cap, and besides atlanta, I would love the cowgirls cap to be blown up.

I don't think the report was false. There have been way too many reports that verify it.

He'll get 30+ mill bc the cowboys, like every other team, does not have the fortitude to stop this runaway train. The next "guy" will make even more. The next WR will get more than Mike. The next DE will get top$ and on and on. Just my opinion. I could be wrong.
