Huh.  I thought you just spent a couple of weeks going on about how if the Cowboys pay Dak $40M, it would be bad for them.

Musta been someone else.

Yes, reading is a problem for you I see.  I said Dak is a solid QB that you can win with if you have the right players around him.  If you pay him $40M, it limits their ability to put enough players around him.  That's pretty much what I said about Carr.  He's the thing... Carr's making $25M, not $40M, hence, following exactly what I said.  Don't overpay you QB.

It seems to me that if, in the market value of the NFL (not in your opinion of who's worth what), Dak is worth paying $40M and Carr is worth paying $25M, that would make a pretty good case for Dak being better than Carr.  But then I have these reading problems, you know...

Correct, the NFL (owners), do set the market... the market they have 100% control of.  If they chose to ignore the fact that overpaying QB's is bad, in time, the rules will fix it for them.  As I said in my other thread, more and more QB's are becoming NFL worthy.  Meaning, the supply will go up.  When the supply goes up the value goes down because the demand (32 teams/32 starting jobs), is static.  The smart owners will get a jump on it and start paying QB's based on their ability and not antiquated value, then they'll start winning sooner.

Different types of coaching can also slowly reduce the QB value. Hell, stack your offense with bad-asses and run the wishbone again. Who knows?

That's absolutely true.  I think there's a lot of QB's out there that are perfectly capable of winning a Super Bowl.  In fact, I think at least half if not even as many as two-thirds of the QB's in this league can help their team win the Super Bowl.  So, I don't think it's lack of talent which is basically reducing the Super Bowls to only like or 7 guys over the last 25 years.
