I’m inclined to cut Dak some slack. No, he is not playing particularly well. Yes, he made a series of head scratch-inducing decisions against the WFT. But I’ve yet to see anything I would consider a crisis.
Dak was wearing the league out last year until his fracture. Dak was wearing the league out again this season until his calf injury. I suspect there are some lingering effects. It’s called “football.”
I’m much more concerned with the state of the Dallas running game. Because that’s where it all starts, offensively. Get that going again, and you’ll be shocked at how quickly Dak starts lighting it up again off play action.
Think about it. With the exception of Brady and Rodgers (and Brady and Rodgers are the exceptions to everything, always), EVERY highly-regarded or high-profile NFL quarterback has been through at least one deep slump this season.
Josh Allen? Check.
Kyler Murray? Check.
Patrick Mahomes? Check.
Russell Wilson? Check.
Joe Burrow? Check.
Ryan Tannehill? Check.
Lamar Jackson? Check.
Matthew Stafford? Check.
Justin Herbert? Check
Carson Wentz? Check.
Kirk Cousins? Check.
Baker Mayfield? Check. (Although he is becoming less “highly regarded.”)
Ben Roethlisberger? Check (Although he is clearly washed.)
I want Dak healthy, settled and confident a month from now. I think he will be.
Watch Yo Ass Wednesday!
The following favorites need to watch they ass as they head to their Week 15 matchups. (Potential tormentors in parentheses.)
Y’ALL ALL BETTAH WATCH YO ASS!
Here’s a downer. COVID, almost two years into this pandemic, may yet determine who wins the Super Bowl, and the NBA Championship. This may get worse and more widespread than it did last year.
It’s a given that Urban Meyer will be one-and-done in Jacksonville. What I don’t understand is how anyone ever thought that was going to work in the first place. Bad guy,
And Dan Snyder and his wife are going to have to sell the WFT. The Jolly Roger has had enough.
Say hi to O.J. if you see him today. O.J. Simpson is now a completely free man.
Yeah, I know. It’s early signing day in college football. I will not grovel. Go to class. Be a good person. Be a good teammate. Become a good player. Play your butt off. Don’t be a jackass. Then maybe I’ll learn your name.
