      @Aj Hollingsworth These people do realize we are the ones footing the bill for these ridiculous discussions. Just keep raising the prices of those overpriced beers and tickets. Tom Brady is the only player to take a massive salary cut to keep his team great for years, yet no one really talks about this.

      You overpay Dak, you got to underpay the Men that block Dak that made Dak who he is..

    I like Dak but here are the facts: Has Dak won a Superbowl, NFC Championship, Playoff divisional round? The answer is no, no, and no. Is he a Mahomes, Brady, Brees? The answer is no, no, and no. Is he a top 5 NFL quarterback - again NO. How in the world does he think he should be the highest paid player in the NFL? If he's stuck on that number, I'd let him go and go after a two year contract with Brady and work at drafting a new QB.

          Dallas Cowboys will pay Dak, hopefully not the 40M don't think his worth it.
          All this is just more publicity for Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys.

                Stop making excuses for him. Doggg why should my man get $40 million but can’t get us no where close to nfc championship game. Look at 2012 Baltimore QB paid him all that money never got close but at least he won a Super Bowl,,,,,, put into writing if he wins Super Bowl then bonus but best Dak is $20+ million at high best. That’s it. If he gonna talk the talk then walk the walk as Jimmy Johnson would say.

                    If the Cowboys couldn't win a Super Bowl while Dak was under the rookie pay scale. What makes you think they can if they pay him $40million? NONE!

                        $40 million? For What? How many touchdowns did he lead the Cowboys in scoring in Philadelphia when the division title was on the line? How many championship games and Super Bowls has Dak led the Cowboys in playing in, let alone winning?

                          If the Cowboys are smart, they let him walk. dont be like how the Ravens were. Bidding against no1. No other team is gonna give Dak anywhere near that kind of $$$. You tell him, $25 mill/year, take it or walk. He isnt a QB to help raise your franchise. I like him, he has all the good qualities of being face of your franchise, but he isnt a star QB.

                              The whole thing is wrong!!!! You're going to hold out because you want 40 mil and you turn down 35 mil? That's greedy!!! That's one thing that I really don't like about people in general are how some give in to greed

                                        i hope they give Dak a long term contract though
                                        dallas fans are idiots. they deserve him

                                      That would make him the highest paid Q B in the NFL.... can any football fan tell me it makes sense for Dak Prescott to be that Q B.? I mean with a straight face? It just makes me laugh. He's as hot and cold as any Q B I've ever seen. He looks like Montana this week, and Jay Cutler the next. He is any thing but a mature, developed, seasoned, poised, QB. If he gets that money, you're gonna see a whole bunch of other Q B's cashing in. Dak isn't even close to being worth that kind of money, and isnt in the top five Q B s, let alone number one. More Cowboy delusions....their big with the press, but their success doesnt carry over to the game! I'd be curoous to see how McCarthy will play him..
                                      AFTER ALL, HES NO AARON ROGERS, HE'LL FALL ON HIS FACE TRYING TO BE! Fun to watch! The Cowboys are the most talented "Losers" in the N F L !

                                        NEVER has he looked like montana. best oline in the nfl, period. 8-8 in the worst division in the nfl.
                                        for gods sake a banged up wentz with 3rd string receivers and injuries on defense beat "dak" to the playoffs.
                                        jerry please pay that extremely overrated game managing player for the last 4 years big money.
                                        thank you jerry

                                                            Dallas needs a QB at the playing level of Mahomes, Jackson, Watson and Garappolo if they want to reach and win a playoff game. Last year was a clear case of regression so this demand of his to match Mahomes-level pay day is absurd.

                                                                                  Or, maybe it's because you've made a killing off of Dak and hes received PEANUTS
