    Cowboys need to hire Kingsbury as OC and QB coach. A successful 2 or 3 year run as Dallas OC, and see him really develop Prescott, and he'd be in the running for an NFL HC gig.

    I'm not a Cowboys fan so I would like to see McDonough as OC there.

    Nesbitt can take over as head coach.

    As bad as I hate to admit it. You are probably right. I will say this, he gives you everything he’s got. I really hope he can improve and become a better than average NFL QB.

    He will never be a P. Manning, Brady, Montana, etc..... BUT with the team built around Zeke, the Boys are not looking for that. They just need a guy who can make plays with arms & legs when needed. And a guy who can get the team fired up. THAT is Dak.

    Was Hall of Fame QB, and 3 time Super Bowl winner Aikman better than Prescott? I compared their first 3 years below:

    AIKMAN YEAR 1
    YEAR 1989
    YDS 1749
    TD 9
    INT 18
    RATING 55.7

    AIKMAN YEAR 2
    YEAR 1990
    YDS 2579
    TD 11
    INT 18
    RATING 66.6

    AIKMAN YEAR 3
    YEAR 1991
    YDS 2754
    TD 11
    INT 10
    RATING 86.7

    PRESCOTT YEAR 1
    YEAR 2016
    YDS 3,667
    TD 23
    INT 5
    RATING 104.9

    PRESCOTT YEAR 2
    YEAR 2017
    YDS 3,324
    TD 22
    INT 13
    RATING 86.6

    PRESCOTT YEAR 3
    YEAR 2018
    YDS 3,885
    TD 22
    INT 8
    RATING 96.9

    Maybe Prescott is better than you think.

    Kingsbury is about to become head coach of the Cardinals. The guy got fired from Tech, went to LA and now to the NFL. CRAZY sequence of events

    Stats are like bikinis... what they don't show you is far more interesting than what they do.

    The biggest weakness I can see about Dak is his arm strength. He does NOT throw the ball deep with any kind of velocity. Definitely not like Aikman or even Romo. Look how many of Dak's "deep" passes were batted away because they float too long allowing the DBs enough time to catch up and make a play on the ball. Think about the game against Hou. I agree about everything else you've stated about Dak. He seems to be a really good leader and the team seemed to accept his role as leader from day one. Dak seems to have a really good head on his shoulders and will definitely leave it all on the field. What he lacks in ability (deep ball) he seems to work really hard to make up with game smarts.

    I don’t usually listen to the Baghdad Bob of the SEC in Paul Finebaum, but it’s funny as heck today as it was last Wednesday after UGA got beat. Even Paul is having a hard time with some of the nonsense being spouted off in the form of excuses. The SEC is a damn cult. You have fans of other schools making excuses for Bama who would normally hate them. Dare I say if the game last night was closer, they wouldn’t be defending them to this extent. But I guess having their two top dogs dressed down and exposed hurt their egos too! Lol!!!

    Not a fair comparison, Aikman did not have the talent around him until later. Once the talent arrived I never heard any sports analyst questioning his talent like they have Dak’s In his prime.

    I am very much a Dak fan and won’t him to succeed. He is not making the throws from the pocket and that is my biggest concern. That is where I hope he gets a lot better because that is what will extend his career.

    Never been a Pete Carroll fan, so it warmed my heart when Dak executed the QB draw to perfection and kicked his azz out of the playoffs.

    Guess he bypassed those successful 2-3 years.

    This is very perplexing. It's sure not my Cardinal money hiring KK (now). What a leap by an NFL team. The owners might as well have pulled a wild hair out of their azz.

    Best of luck to the Cards. And good for KK hitting a big payday. But wow, even Lane Kiffin has a better resume.

    This is something I haven't thought of that might be looming in the minds of many around college football and the NFL. Patrick Mahomes and Baker Mayfield spent time under KK and have been very successful in the NFL. The thought process may be that KK can elevate the level of play at QB and that will equate to winning. Once again, where he is a really good offensive mind, he tends to forget that there are other moving parts that need to be addressed to be a really good HC.

    From what I've read, that's the mindset of some NFL owners

    As he proved at Tech? Either Tech as a program is 3rd rate or Kliff The Klunker is.

    I know the WAC just hired away a Big Sky asst Commissioner to aid Hurd and my thinking at the time was this guy going to start moving WAC back toward football. There is a lot of undercurrent going on to preserve the WAC.
