  • We are living in a world where Russell Wilson is making 35.

  • Aaron Rodgers is making 34.

  • You've got D Shawn Watson making 39.

  • You've got Patrick Mahomes making 45 the Dallas Cowboys in the situation because they franchised that Prescott last year.

  • If you franchise him this year is gonna cost 37 million against you.

  • And obviously, if you think about trying to do it next year, what you won't do because it's gonna cost you $50 million which gives him all the leverage in the world.

  • So because of that leverage, Dan Orlovsky.

  • Now we've got a situation here.

  • If you're willing to pay him 37 million, you're trying to tell me instead of paying them 37 million for one year, you don't want to take care of him and add about two or three more million to the mix so you could take care of it for the next four or five and be done with it and have peace and harmony within your franchise at the quarterback position.

  • That would be the smart way to go about doing things so you could talk about that Prescott being good.

  • I think he's better than good.

  • You're 42 27 As a starter, You've got a near 321 turn TV to interception ratio, where you're on the football field.

  • You've taken them to the playoffs twice.

  • You won a playoff game.

  • Okay, in your four years as a starter, up until you got injured last year in Game five, you did.

  • You hadn't missed a single game.

  • It was back page news when you missed the practice, when, when, when he wasn't in the lineup, we saw.

  • All of a sudden, the offensive line looked even worse.

  • Andy Dalton got exposed.

  • Ezekiel Elliott didn't look like himself.

  • Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CD Lam and those boys as well as talented as they are and as much as they could play, they didn't look as formidable without him on the football field.

  • And don't even get me started with leadership in the locker room or lack thereof.

  • And so when you take all of those things into consideration that you consider the fact that we're talking about America's team and you understand the cachet that comes along with it, excuse me, you take care of the one that you've got, the one that's produced for you.

  • And that is the route you go into.

  • It ain't about Oh, he's very good, but you don't play him great money.

  • Well, guess what To the Dallas Cowboys.

  • He's pretty damn great because they flat out stink without him, and that is where the marketability comes from.

  • And that is why you give that press, got the money and say I'm done with it, whether you think he's worth it or not.

  • If it ain't 40 is 38.

  • So damn, what if you gotta lock him up and get rid of this problem for the next 34 years?

  • Now, I got to respond to what you just said first, even a how you started before I get to you, Dan.

  • Number one.

  • You don't have to be irrational just because the markets irrational.

  • And I think that's been my point about quarterbacks.

  • Quarterbacks are overpaid.

  • There is a cap there so that people like Dan.

  • We'll come on TV and say, Hey, you wanna win Super Bowls?

  • You wanna be the highest paid all the cap does.

  • The hard cat is funnel money from the players to the owners.

  • And because of that system, quarterbacks take too much of a percentage of the cap.

  • Now, then, I believe your point is Aaron Rodgers.

  • You know, uh, Tom Brady obviously still showed it.

  • Obviously.

  • Patrick Mahomes two.

  • Shawn Watson.

  • They're worth it.

  • But you better be sure your guy is worth it before you given that money.

  • And even if it is, it could be a handicap to you the way it is.

  • Russell Wilson in Seattle.

  • Okay, that's one.

  • But here's why.

  • Actually, Stephen is right in this case in this case.

  • And you're wrong, Dan, because I had the exact same point of view you do now.

  • A year ago, a year ago, I had the same point of view as you.

  • Three things happened.

  • Okay, That means that Jerry Jones has lost the negotiation.

  • It played out.

  • Jones was taking a certain position.

  • He has now lost, and it's just a matter of time.

  • It's not a matter of if he's gonna have to come forward.

  • That beat me here.

  • The three things that happened one.

  • Andy Dalton was much worse than back.

  • Like I thought That is good.

  • Not great.

  • Maybe he's on his way to being great.

  • Andy Dalton is a good backup.

  • There was no comparison, that offense when Dalton was in and Dak was out.

  • That's one that gives that the leverage Stephen is talking about.

  • Two.

  • No one else in the division has a quarterback.

  • They'd be the Onley franchise with a real star quarterback, like a seriously above average quarterback that gives them a huge opportunity in the next couple of years to host playoff games.

  • If you sign that you have a really good chance to have home playoff games every year in the you know in the next several years, that's two and three to Stephen a point.

  • The franchise tag is 37 million.

  • Next year, it's over 50 and you gotta pay it on one year.

  • It's a cap it so really what this is.

  • It's true.

  • We all know what this is.

  • It's three years around 1 20.

  • The when signing was a mistake.

  • I thought so.

  • At the time.

  • It proved to be a mistake.

  • The golf signing was a mistake.

  • I thought so.

  • At the time, it proved to be a mistake.

  • I thought signing back to the same deal would have been a mistake a year ago.

  • At this point, things have changed.

  • The caps gonna go up.

  • Quarterbacks are making mawr.

  • You are terrible without Dak.

  • You're good with him.

  • You're gonna have to pay him.

  • All right.

  • I think Mac makes Max.

  • Makes a lot of good points.

  • Now, first of all, Stephen A When you use the market, Max points are great.

  • I'm gonna use the analogy of real estate, right?

  • If I want to go buy a house and I'm just gonna use random numbers here, Okay, Let's say my net worth is a million dollars.

  • That's a lot of money.

  • Well, I wanna go by this house, and the market dictates that it's $800,000.

  • Well, I want to buy it, but it's not worth $800,000 but the market tells me it is Is that a smart investment by me?

  • Because they don't have any money to do anything else.

  • All I'm gonna do is be house poor.

  • I got the house that I wanted, and the market dictated that it should cost me that much money.

  • I can't do anything else.

  • So just because the market and he's the next guy up does not make it smart.

  • Business sense for the team or the player Max you mentioned.

  • That's been my point all along.

  • The biggest question is, what does Dak Prescott want?

  • Here's the thing.

  • Everybody's like, Oh my gosh, you talk like Dak Prescott.

  • The bomb.

  • No, I don't.

  • I talk like Dak Prescott is a good quarterback.

  • I have never said anything other than Dak Prescott is a good quarterback.

  • I want somebody, whether it's either of you to Mali, someone at home to tell me when Dak has, like, been great when he's elevated because, Steven, that you point the win loss record in the stats?

  • Absolutely.

  • When you're quarterbacks cheap, you can spend a lot of money elsewhere that helps the quarterback play well.

  • It helps you win games outside of 2016.

  • That's five years ago.

  • The lost four years, their 29 25.

  • That's good, right?

  • They averaged 23 points a game.

  • That's good.

  • So what does Deck want?

  • Does Dak want to be the highest paid quarterback in football?

  • He's yes, the way he's business sense that he's earned that right then.

  • So go ahead and do that.

  • But understand you're not going to win doing that.

  • It's almost impossible.
