Zeke now says he will hold out of TC unless he gets a new deal

Recommended Posts

Daks a pretty middle of the road qb. Hes not bad, but he doesn't do anything spectacular. That oline they have there in force makes his life a lot easier. Beasley and Zeke bailed him out a lot last year. Lets see if Witten can be that safety valve that beeznuts was. Id be very hesitant to give him a long term contract. Id go more bridge route, big money short term show me what you got.

Cooper played lights out last season for the Cowboys. He made a big difference and the numbers showcased that, of course Dak is a decent QB who is going to command too much money. 

 

No he didn't.  and no they did not.  Go back and see my post above. He played lights out for 2 games, disappeared for 4.  That's what he is. Their offense got worse compared to the season before.

I stand corrected he did have 5 games of more than 50 yards and 4 games under. Much more boom or bust, the Cowboys can judge if he is worth a contract by how he plays this season. Definitely needs to be more consistent.

Oakland already made that judgement fir them.  Check out his “best” season 2016.  Disappeared for whole chunks of that season.  Boom or bust?  How about just bust.  But now the Cowboys are set on giving him top 5 money.  So dumb.

Yet still true.

 

Oakland that this is what this guy is like and said goodbye.  Now he's playing the same way in Dallas.  He should play for the Dolphins, since he is MIA so much...

The Raiders apparently made the same judgment about Khalil Mack.

Actually the opposite is true.

 

They correctly saw the one guy on their team with superior talent (coming to a big payday) as a very valuable asset and parlayed him into 2 1sts, a 3rd and a 6th---and they didn't have to pay him the insane money Chicago blew on him (140 mil, 90 guaranteed).

 

You can't build a playoff team around 1 pass rusher.  It was a smart move.  Meanwhile the Bears D went from top 10 to top 3 and they lost the wild card because they needed their kicker to score their points.

Your M.O. is hilarious but tiresome: Stake out an absurd position (usually that some NFL player sucks or is overrated) and fight to the death.  

 

The Raiders made the exact same calculation with Cooper that they did with Mack.  The only difference is they got only one first round pick for Cooper.  It doesn’t mean Cooper isn’t a very good receiver.

 

And your assertion that Cooper didn’t help Dallas much last year is laughable.  He averaged almost 100 yards receiving per game and played very well in two playoff games.  The team was 3-4 without Cooper and 7-2 with him.  Passing offense went from 180 ypg to 250.  

 

Please do better.

"Zero"?  You jest...

 

 

In 2018, with Cooper, the Cowboys Offense went from 14th to 22nd.  He had 2 huge games then 4 games with 36 or fewer yards.  In the last 3 games of the regular season, he had only 13 catches on 23 targets for 83 yards and 0 TDs (they went 3-1 despite his relative absence from the Offense).  That's their #1 WR. 

 

Since Prescott's rookie year, the Dallas Offensive point production has plummeted (421-354-339).

 

In 2016 and 2018 (playoff years), the Cowboys went 13-3 and 10-6....yet still could not get past the divisional game in the playoffs.  So if Zeke and Amari and Dak are all together again this season you think they'll win what, 10?, 12?  Ok sure...so who are they going to knock off in the NFCC?  Saints?  Rams?  Eagles with Wentz back?  Seattle, who they barely beat with only Wilson and Tyler Locket showing up)?

I already did---see the recap above.  Your continued harping on his "average" YPG completely avoids the point of this discussion---he doesn't bring it every week like a top 5 WR should.  He's unquestionably over-rated (well, by you at least). 

 

I have already explained how the Raiders viewed the two differently (Cooper--sporadic performer not worth the massive pay he would soon be seeking..... and a top pick in return) and Mack (massively talented player who for them had far more value in the picks he would bring).

 

I'm not sure how you can still say  you don't get this.

QB's with at least 400 passing attempts in 2018, Prescott ranks 13th in QB Rating, 15th in passing yards, 9th in Completion %.

 

$30 million per year he turned down would put him as the 6th highest paid QB in the league.

 

Per Jackie Slater, his $40 million demand will hopefully gain him a $35 million per year contract, which would tie him with Russell Wilson, Tom Brady who have the richest deals, and surpass Ben Roethlisberger and Aaron Rodgers. That's 10 Super Bowl Rings, vs. a guy with 1 playoff win.

 

Those 4 QB's earned their $30+ million per year contract with at least one SB ring in their pocket.

 

Greed is ugly.  Thankful he isn't a Buffalo Bill.

You need to do much better.  This is almost as bad as your legendary takes on legal matters, of which you know less than zero.

 

You’re still quoting the alleged stat that the Cowboys’ offense went from 14th to 22nd.  Whether that’s true or not, the Cowboys’ passing offense went from 189 YPG to 250 per game after acquiring Cooper.

 

Yes, Cooper had games in which he only had a few catches....So what?  Julio Jones had two games last year with less than 30 yards receiving...it happens.  

 

Cooper averaged close to 100 YPG (including playoff games) with the Cowboys, all while having to catch passes from the—according to you—thoroughly mediocre Dak Prescott.

"Alleged"?  Look it up.  They went from 14th in points and scoring to 22 in points and scoring. They scored more points on fewer plays over the season 2017 v 2018.  Although they did skyrocket from 26th to 23rd in passing with the addition of Cooper...lol

 

Julio Jones?? That guy has had at least 1400 yards the past 5 seasons!  His WORST career season with at least 14 games is better than Cooper's career BEST season.  LOL--Julio Jones!  You might have well have pointed out that Jerry Rice had a few games under 50!  What a ridiculous comaprison.  

 

"It happens"?  Sure does--in Cooper's case: in  64 career games played, he has had 35 or fewer yards 24 times--38% of his outings have been duds.  Compare that to Julio Jones who has had 13% over nearly twice as many career games.

 

Cooper did not average "close to 100 YPG"  with Dallas.  With the playoffs, he had 896 yards in 11 games.  That's 81, which is not close to 100.  He had 3 games over 100 yards out of 11.  56% of his yards came in 3 games out of 11.  56%!  He averaged 49 YPG over the other 8 games. 

 

If that's your #1 WR, he's mediocre.  At best.
