    he is not good. thats why he not gotten paid. zeke said im not playing he got paid line man said i need money they got paid. dak said i need to get paid, nothing happens. WE NEED TUA NOT TRASHCOTT

  2. Blazin Speed on March 1, 2020 at 8:32 pm

    He should become a free agent if the Cowboys don’t want to pay him

  3. NOBO Takoda on March 1, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Get up the board and grab Tua!

  4. Billy Hill on March 1, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Prescott’s not worth the franchise tag of 27 million

  5. Lloyd Gray on March 1, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    Some of these analyst act as though Dak is a great QB which he is not. There is no way the Cowboys should franchise Dak or offer him more than $3 million, he’s below average at beat. Trade up and draft Tua then allow Dak to be a free agent. He has not won a big game in his career, cant even lead a team with a great offensive line and running back to a touchdown in big games. Waste of money signing Dak long term, and will never win a playoff game with him.

  6. YDCFF on March 1, 2020 at 8:35 pm

    Obviously no other teams are beating his door down and Jerry knows it. Twice he resigned Romo early because he didn’t want him to test the market. It’s like he’s daring Dak to test the market. At the end of the day, Jerry holds all the cards because he signs the checks.

  7. arnold oliver on March 1, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Of course Dak is gonna get tag I’ve been saying this since day one

  8. Ben Reyes on March 1, 2020 at 8:36 pm

    Good that’s best thing for him. Too greedy.

  9. yamamancha on March 1, 2020 at 8:38 pm

    The tag is a win-win situation in this case.

  10. Giffond Hall on March 1, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    dak is not top 5 but deserves 28 mil

  11. Rock A on March 1, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    Look straight up he’s got stats but that doesn’t necessarily equal to playoff wins or even getting to a super bowl I just don’t think he’s the one guys and lol I’m not even a cowboys fan but I want you guys win haha

  12. Curtis 23 on March 1, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    He’s a 36million dollar QB

  13. Richard Strohbach on March 1, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    The Franchise tag will prove my belief that Jerry doesn’t think Dak can carry this team without Zeke. When Zeke runs they win, when he doesn’t they lose. Look at the stats. When Dak has had to throw 30+ passes a game they are 18-22. What more evidence do you need.

  14. Lisa Jones on March 1, 2020 at 8:42 pm

    Daks should play another position. He’s a very solid guy. 😉

  15. Joseph Mccuin on March 1, 2020 at 8:43 pm

    I feel like im watching a live version of madden20 face of franchise (press that like!)

  16. edward olvera on March 1, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Let him walk

    Dak is even worst than Jimmy G

  17. SportsSpeak73 on March 1, 2020 at 8:46 pm

    The fact that "there is no reason to assume to he (Dak) can redo that season" is why the Cowboys are hesitant to pay him what he’s asking. You can’t find a GM, coach, or analyst willing to say Dak Prescott is a top 5 QB in this league, or even top 7…so demanding to be paid like a top 2 is irrational

  18. Zack rocks22 on March 1, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    If they franchise tag dak I’m finna get pissed

  19. David R on March 1, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    Am a Cowboy fan but i.m tired of hearing about them I will listen to them again when they start doing something worthy of drawing fans back to believing in them 🤔

  20. Seth Sters on March 1, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    I get the feeling Dak wouldn’t play on the tag. It would buy them a few more weeks to negotiate.

  21. Christopher Cripps on March 1, 2020 at 8:54 pm

    Why does everyone fixate on yards passing? NFL games are not decided by fantasy football rules. Prescott 4900+ yds on 590+ attempts (30 td, 11 int) but 8-8; J Winston 5100 yd on 620+ attempts (33 td, 30 int) & 7-9; R Wilson only 4110 yd on 516 att (31 td, 5 int) for 12-6 incl playoff w. Based on yards alone Dallas should sign Winston. IMO it’s the low interceptions that makes Wilson MUCH more valuable. So imo Wilson’s reported $35 million sets Prescott’s near term ceiling but what better near term option does Dallas have? So to Dallas, Prescott may b worth more than Wilson as he’d be in the top 1 or 2 QB free agent.
    Eagles fans (disclaimer like me) r hoping Jones fouls this up & has to let A Cooper walk. 😀

  22. Ben Nava on March 1, 2020 at 8:57 pm

    Dak sucks! Jerry sucks!!! Cowboys need a QB and besides Jerry what do you got to loose, another 8-8 season 😁😂🤣😅🥊🇲🇽

  23. -AquaLoud- on March 1, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Dont do it

  24. mouserat on March 1, 2020 at 9:03 pm


  25. edward Romo on March 1, 2020 at 9:05 pm


  26. Titan Master Race on March 1, 2020 at 9:07 pm

    Not gonna lie i be using the franchise tag on madden 20 😂my cap space in the negative to 😭

  27. Itz wat It iz on March 1, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Dak gettin done like a hoe.

  28. Henry Hill on March 1, 2020 at 9:09 pm

    Put non exclusive tag on Dak period.

  29. richard Harris on March 1, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Dak is just minding "his" own business! Nfl football is a business. People should mind their own business. Pay him or trade him! Its that simple!!

  30. Trojan Hell on March 1, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    Dak can’t help this TEAM win he’s bad

  31. BCF Artworks on March 1, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    I really like Dak as a person. He has a good attitude. He’s a physical guy. He had the best rookie season of any QB of all time. Last season he showed to be slow to get things going in the first half, which cost him. We had a terrible terrible kicker last season. I think Dak could win a super bowl, but there are some interesting options out there. Franchise taga should just be taken out of the system.

  32. Lewis Anderson on March 1, 2020 at 9:12 pm

    It so stupid how people say he shouldnt sign if they offer franchise that would be stupid cause if he doesnt sign it then he wouldnt be able to ever hit free agency. He is req 2 tags and then u can move on,. If you refuse to sign them you dont play and he stays dallas player till he signs them unless they trade him or due like pittsburgh did to bell and basically release him.

  33. Frank Heck on March 1, 2020 at 9:20 pm

    Franchise tag = still overpaid. Let him walk, and we shall see who will even make an offer for 25-30 million a year

  34. James Dean on March 1, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    If u think dak is something special .. imagine mahomes with the cowboys offense. That is a true 40 mil quarterback. Cowboys will sign him for 35 plus and lose real great players like cooper etc and won’t see a Super Bowl for another 20 yrs . Waste money on above avg qb surrounded but those who make him look better than he really is

  35. Jim Smith on March 1, 2020 at 9:21 pm

    Because of the new staff you have to franchise him. Now that the team is even more complete he has no excuses for subpar performances…

  36. Ethan !!!! on March 1, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    As an Eagles fan, I’d love to see Dak hold out. Or get Franchise tagged

  37. Frank Di Bugnara on March 1, 2020 at 9:23 pm


  38. Vos Landeck on March 1, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    They offered him $33 million per year…..Prescott isn’t worth more than that. Until he faces that reality, he’s not signing….. franchise tag is the most likely outcome.

  39. Diego Vazquez on March 1, 2020 at 9:25 pm

    Jerry Jones needs to stop making the decisions that’s why bad things happen to us! This has been killing us for a decade already!

  40. Soggy weiner on March 1, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    What’s the point of the franchise tag

  41. C Beasley on March 1, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    Trade up for Tua and let Dak walk

  42. West World on March 1, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    The exclusive tag is $33 m, then $40 m then $57 m fully guaranteed.

    The non-exlusive tag is $27 m and the Cowboys will not use it because teams will easily pay $30 m to get Dak and give up 2 first rd picks.

    It doesn’t matter if Dak is a top 5 player or not. He’s guaranteed $36.5 m pa fully guaranteed because the Cowboys NEED him and can’t let him walk.

    Dak needs to refuse to sign to force the Cowboys to trade him with the non-exclusive tag.

    JJ only wants Dak as a GAME MANAGER for a Zeke focused offense ,,,, not an elite pocket passer running the offence.

    Dak needs to get to the Patriots or Colts and finally get great coaching to be an elite pocket passing QB..

  43. Linda Easley on March 1, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    Money changes people .The real Dak is greedy . He doesn’t care if what he’s demanding will tie the hands of the front office in the future to pay other key players or acquire them in FA
    Look at how Goff and Wentz fleeced their teams . And Dak hasn’t even taken the Cowboys to an NFC title game

  44. Ethan !!!! on March 1, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    The bottom line is Dak needs to understand that he’s not worth 40 Million. If he continues to ask for that he will get franchise tagged.

  45. kevin 213 on March 1, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    I really don’t think that Dak has it in him to take the cowboys to a Superbowl. Let’s be real here

  46. Geoff Thompson on March 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Wouldn’t it be easier for the Cowboys to pay Dak Prescott?

  47. Huey Ali on March 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    That’s not being selfish trying to get what you believe you’re worth. Don’t paint that narrative on Dak. That’s not right.

  48. Black Bull on March 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    He’s not the guy. You can campaign for him. You can root for him and spout off all his meaningless stats. In the end I know it, you know it, the Cowboys know it, and the players and coaches around the league, if they are honest, know it too. Dak ain’t worth it. He’s average, and I’m not advocating for an average QB to get superstar money, period.

  49. Greg Blevins on March 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Dak is too pedestrian to waste the tag on him! Draft a solid quarterback in the 1st or 2nd round for McCarthy to immediately work with and then get a hugh, heavy, long armed nose type tackle to plug the middle of the D-line and have millions to spare!

  50. - FlyBoyLou - on March 1, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    If dak does not take offer on table before March date. Offer deal to t.brady.. no need for qb to be selfish and dismantle team. Should get paid and keep team around him. Strive for playoff success
