I'm a huge get yours guy. I think people should be paid what they're worth. Teachers shouldn't be starting at 33K. Jerry Reinsdorf should've had an ounce of class and renegotiated with Scottie after he outperformed one of the worst contracts in NBA history. I'm a do the right thing guy.
Dak Prescott is a good NFL quarterback. I don't think I can name 10 I'd rather have. He technically won Rookie of the Year in 2016 (it should've gone to the man he was handing the ball off to). He's won 40 games in four seasons and his stats are efficient.
Advanced numbers say he may be even better than the classic QB stats would indiciate.
Take that with a grain of salt. I like PFF a lot, but after they said Russell Wilson was the 33rd best player of the 2010's they are no longer Football Gospel in my eyes.
By looking at that last embed tweet you already saw a little bit about what this blog is about...
DAK PRESCOTT TURNED THIS DEAL DOWN!!
I don't fucking get it man. Is Suit Man Dak's agent? Does he not understand how the salary cap works? Did he not see what Tom Brady did the last two decades to help build a better team? Who is giving him this advice/supporting his decisions?!?!?
Do you want to win or do you want to get paid? I'm all for getting yours, but have you watched yourself play? 35 milly a year is more than fair. You were on the OG 2015 fraud list after all. Can we pull up some Dak Super Bowl highlights? No? Damn. How about some Dak NFC Championship Game highlights? No? Bummer. Oh dope here's some highlights from the 2018 Divisional Round that you made it to by beating a team without a kicker by two points!! One playoff win in four years does not warrant 45 million dollars a year IMO. How do you expect to build a competitive team when the QB's deal takes up $45 million of the cap?
The NFL QB pay structure is so flawed. Every new deal becomes the highest paid QB deal in NFL history. It's not Dak's fault. It's his turn. I get wanting every cent you can get out of billionaires, but it gets to a certain point where you're being just as greedy. No way on earth Dak is worth 45 million a year. Not until he gets further in the playoffs than Blake Bortles and Ryan Tannehill.
