Cowboys Rumors & News: Dak Prescott Extension? Doug Nussmeier New QB Coach & Coaching Staff Hires

  • Published: 12 January 2020
  • Dallas Cowboys Rumors and news including coaching staff updates on Doug Nussmeier, Jon Kitna and Maurice Linguist, free agency targets and if the Cowboys will get moving on a contract extension for Dak Prescott. The Cowboys news also includes an offseason surgery update for Jeff Heath.

    Dak Prescott is due for a new extension and it will be expensive for the Dallas Cowboys. But if the Cowboys wait on a Dak Prescott Contract extension, it will only become even more expensive. And what do pending deals for Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson mean for Dak?

    The Cowboys coaching staff is starting to come together under Mike McCarthy. Jon Kitna is out as QB coach, while the Cowboys are set to dip into the coaching ranks for some defensive help. Texas A&M Cornerbacks coach Maurice Linguist is on board and Cowboys Report host Tom Downey will tell you who that is. In a surprising move, Doug Nussmeier is staying on staff, moving from TE’s coach to QB’s coach. What does this mean for Dak and the rest of the Cowboys?

    Jeff Heath is the latest Cowboys player to have offseason surgery, but will he even be back next year. He’s a free agent and so are possible free agent targets like Eric Ebron and DJ Reader. Both could help the Cowboys, but who makes more sense for Dallas?

              I would like to see the Cowboys actually draft a receiver I don't think Amari Cooper is the answer he was not all that great in Oakland and yet we gave up a first-round draft choice for him he didn't play very well towards the end I guess he must have thought he was back Oakland had one good year but when we really needed him he wasn't there

                  I've been saying this from his rookie yr. DAK is not a franchise Qb. PERIOD. Has not showen that he has Big Play Skills when game is on the line. What he has shown is that hes average in accuracy and hes not good reading defense and making the correct adjustmen.hes a backup Quarterback he cant even. scramble to get a first down. Jarred Goff Carson Wendz, Deshawn Jackson all Big Paymaker skills. Jerry needs to look for another quarterback in draft. dak is a Jorneyman. watch and see

                    look.dak isn't good.maybe if he actually threw the ball more then 5 or 10 yards they might win.only in 2 minute drill does he really throw the ball down the field.the fact he is still the starter is crazy.he isn't the answer at quarterback.not to mention cry baby zeke cried about getting more money.then last half of year didn't do shit.and dak wants a max deal?wtf.all of these great players and they suck.everybody wants to blame Jerry.Jerry ain't throwing the fucking ball

                          As long as Jerry Jones as the owner they will still be the same. I've been a Cowboys fan for over 40 years I'm done. It's time to move on

                            No do not bring Jeff Heath back. Injury-prone, and he's long in the tooth. Get a young stud and get a d a w g we need some we need some fire in that secondary. And get a hitter in the secondary, and while you are letting go Heath get rid of Byron Jones also

                                Trade Dak for what we can get. Then sign Marcus Mariota and draft a qb. Dak is over rated

                                      Franchise Dak...bc, he's proved nothing when it counts. He can't run away from a penguin and has terrible shoulders. He's too slow and other, team's defense do not view his arm accurate enough to be a threat. I like Dak, but; business is business and he's not that guy. Ask yourself. Can he even get us to a S. Bowl appearance? This answer has only, two letters.

                                                      Dak is Not the Answer. Mark my words. Nice guy. Great teammate. No speed on the ball. Not Accurate enough. Terrible ball placement (typically behind the receiver). Not getting past a WIld Card (One & Done) with Prescott.

                                                            Why are we so blindsided with Dak is not an accurate passing Quarterback.

                                                                                  2019 proves Kellen is crap. The #1 offense, a great roster, a well coached QB, a good OL all season ... and Kellen could only win 8 games this season, ... including 6 wins due to crap teams.

                                                                                  Scott Linehan was fired after a 10-6 season and a playoff win. Scott Linehan has a 13-3 record with a crap D, and a rookie QB.

                                                                                  Stop blaming Garrett or Linehan or Dak for the failures of the offense these last 4 years.

                                                                                  JJ hired Garrett, Linehan, Wade Wilson, and Kellen Moore.

                                                                                  JJ gave Kellen Moore the opportunity to be a QB coach, and he sucked.

                                                                                  JJ then decided a year later to give the crap QB coach an opportunity to be the OC of a great roster, and Kellen Moore sucked with only 8 wins over mostly crap teams.

                                                                                  JJ could have got Jim Caldwell, who is a SB winning OC & QB coach ... to run the great 2019 roster. But no. JJ wants Kellen.

                                                                                  JJ is to blame for 25 years of the Cowboys sucking. JJ runs his team .. his way ... with his puppet coaches.

                                                                                  JJ has clearly forced Mike McCarthy to keep Kellen Moore, and Mike is being smart by declaring from the start that Kellen will be calling the plays so you can't blame the HC with the #1 offense sucks. lol.

                                                                                Kitna is the the reason that Cowboys had a #1 offense.

                                                                                Jerry Jones is forcing McCarthy to keep Kellen Moore. Kellen should have never been the QB coach & then the OC. He's crap.

If you extend Dak, resign Cooper, and keep the 5 starters on the offensive line and Zeke, then that is about $115 million in cap space, and add Demarcus Lawrence, and that is $137 million in cap space.
