    And the Broncos aren't tanking for a draft pick. Even if they lose on Thursday I still don't think they wind up with the #1 pick, and they won't purposely lose football games.
    Denver certainly won't tank for a draft pick, but out of curiosity who do you have them beating? I'm pretty optimistic about Broncos football and I can't see beyond 2 wins.

    And as far as Prescott, I wouldn't want him. I want nothing to do with a .500 QB that wants a giant $40 million contract. The potential of Lock >>> Anything Prescott offers.
    Prescott = 40-24, which is a .625 quarterback. I don't know about you but I'd take that over what we've been doing for 5 years now.

    You're not developing Lock behind this offensive line. Even when he comes back, his shoulder will be an issue all season long and I would surmise that he'll wind up on IR at some point sooner or later. They're not doing anything to protect the quarterback and the injuries are mounting.

    And the Cowboys will most definitely give up Prescott for the right price. If they 100% believed in him they would have signed him to a long-term extension by now.

    Prescott and Stafford are good QBs but not worth mortgaging any potential future for. They both can put up great numbers, but they don't often translate to wins for Dallas or Detroit. Dallas would be winless like us if it weren't for gross incompetence on the part of Atlanta's coaching staff. I'd rather see Dak's $40 Million invested into seriously upgrading the turnstile of an O-line and the remaining salary cap we have for next year invested into an actual coverage LB.
    Stafford I agree we wouldn't "mortgage the future". That's why I said you trade a condo and not the farm.

    I absolutely believe in Dak Prescott, however. That guy can play. And he's 40-24 as a starter so I'm not understanding how he's not a winner.

    Dak benefitted from a solid o-ine. No one is going to fare well here behind ours, until its fixed, until it's good! That's what we need to work on more than anything else.

And there's nothing we could offer Dallas that would make them give up Prescott, nor would he help this team. The goal right now should be developing Lock. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Gotta start by keeping him healthy and upright. Then need to give him continuity from one offseason to the next. Only way we should be giving up on Lock before next year is if we can get Lawrence, but I don't believe that's happening. Stafford is old and the Cowboys aren't giving up Prescott. Let's build our own QB rather than try to take the leftovers of someone else.

    I know this a pipe dream but in all honesty as much as I like Drew and believe he might become a good quarterback, we're just so far behind the 8-ball with competing against Kansas City that we need something to spark life into this team as well as get some semblance of respectable play from the offense. The only way to do that is to bring in an established quarterback who can be an immediate leader and has proven to be productive (i.e. Jake Plummer, Peyton Manning).
