              I hope they pay Dak a ton of money. He’s not worth a huge contract but I want him to get it so he can ruin the Cowboys even more 🤭

                    Put Tony Romo in his prime with this team now. Dak is surrounded by talent on both sides of the ball. Dallas would be a Superbowl contender.

                        My thing is why is it an issue when stud minority quarterbacks and players want to get paid but nobody has anything to say about being a team player when non minority Quarterbacks and players like Rodgers and more importantly Carr get their big pay day and Carr has only got his team to the first round of the playoffs, once and has and will never produce as much as Dak! 💯💯💯👌🏾🤷🏾‍♀️

                                Here is the deal with Dak Prescott. The Dude is making a measly 2 million this season. If he doesn’t sign a contract with the Cowboys they can Franchise him for around $32 million next year. The Cowboys have a Contract on the table that would make him one of the top 5 paid Quarterbacks in the game. He is Not a Top 5 Quarterback. I love him and want him to be a Cowboy for life and win multiple Super Bowls. But, Stop being greedy and sign the deal already. Or you might just get injured and lose millions.

                                          Dont get me wrong...I feel Molly is annoying. But she doesnt deserve the amount of absolute hate she gets on the videos lol BUT with that being g said, no OTHER moderator butts in as much as she does. I think it's mainly her vocal registry at a high frequency that makes her annoying. That's why all commentators are men because a high pitched voice doesnt get recieved to the ear as pleasantly over frequency waves. The one thing I notice is how frequent she interrupts without a get uine opinion. But give her some slack yall lol

                                                  Funny thing is all these Cowboys getting over paid but havent shown they can go to a superbowl Elliott hasnt taken cowboys to a superbowl Gurley has, Prescott hasnt taken cowboys to a superbowl Goff has, what i mean is first show results then you will get paid what you deserve not just because you feel you need more

Dak will never get paid more by any other team than Dallas. If he wants to bet on himself let him and let him play it out till he hits free agency.

                                                                                    • The drunken owl HOOT

It’s not like he’s borderline homeless or anything 🤷🏾‍♂️. He’s still get plenty of money and that’s not even including the endorsements.
