Bit this post is about the cowboys and Dak not the Jets. We can address sam and his outrageous demands in 2 years. If he takes us to the playoffs twice and is a top 5 qb no one will say a word on what he wants. If he is 20th ish and ehhh you will have the same discussion as Dak.
As for the Jones Boys can you argue they have a commitment to winning. They have paid a top 5 offensive line, defensive line man, linebackers. They went out and got a top flight WR. Now you adequate QB wants the most money in the NFL. You are willing to give 30 million that puts him in solid range and he sticks his nose up at it. so hypothetically if they wanted to trade zak straight up of another qb what team would bite. is he better than
Brady, wilson, wentz, goff, maholms, brees,. taking his line and weapons into account is he even top 20 never mind top 10. Hell Joe Flacco could win with Cowboys. So it comes down to do you bay 120k for a pick up truck because the seller things he has you bay the balls and says it looks like a Mercedes, or play hardball a bit and hope everyone is reasonable. I do not envy the boys as between the elliot, dak and cooper they cannot pay everyone what they want without some major cuts, How happy will zeeke and Dak be id 2 offensive linemen go and the end up on their asses 40 percent more then they do now.
