Please SIGN J Lewis, he is a playmaker. Another costly drop by Lamb. Lawrence shining.


Is Dalton throwing poor passes or are the receivers dropping balls?

Let it be known that I hope we can get Dak in a contract that will be beneficial for him and the Cowboys BUT if that’s not possible we can sign Dalton for pennies on the dollar and spend money that is saved on a few good OL linemen , a few good run stoping DT , a few line backers and a few DB’s . Dalton is more capable to lead this team to a SB! This will be the coming trend for teams in the near future when they figure out that tying up money in just a few players and neglecting other positions is costing Championships!


Cowboys have had the most blessed history because the team has never gone a long time without a franchise level QB. Cowboy fabs therefore have the unrealistic idea you can winning any QB .
No QB, no wins.
The best teams in football have QBs that make huge money. Phili has a 125 million dollar QB and is paying a high draft choice.
And please, no Dalton is not ever winning a SB .
