    I said it before. I can never be upset about another man betting on himself. Itís his life, his decisions. What I think heís worth doesnít matter to what he believes heís worth.
    Well said. I think the difference was like 1 extra year and $8 million ($2 million extra per)... just seems short sighted. He will either get something from Dallas or he will go elsewhere.

    I agree with you however, Dak Prescott "can't really believe" he's worth $250 million for 5 years or $160 million for 4 years. He didn't set a realistic amount to begin with. Some family member should have slapped the hell outta him when he turned down $38 million for 5 years, with a fat signing bonus too. Football is a dangerous sport, and right now maybe 2-3 QB's can legit turn down that kind of money and two of them have superbowls, Dak was outta line.

    Dak should fire his agent after he gets out of surgery. They werenít reasonable.

    Hmmm, I thought it was about $10 million a year difference. I don’t know as I haven’t researched it but 1 year and $8 million would be very short sighted. Damn near egregious if so.

    The 5th year was the issue I think. They wanted a 5th year and he wanted to be a free agent before 33. So much back and forth. It was very minimal difference in the end.

    Athletes have huge egos. People are constantly telling them they are the greatest. Its hard not to be out of touch with reality. When I was in college, I had people chirping in my ear how good I was and that I was going to be rich in the NFL because I played college ball. Even a Florida senator told me I was going to be great at the next level. I never got an nfl invite. Thankfully, I didn’t listen and stayed in the books but I know dozens of guys that believed the hype until reality hit them in the ass. Dak is most likely kicking himself with his good leg right about now.

    Dak is still rich regardless. He won't starve during his rehab. He'll be back and playing next year most likely..

    Wow, most guys never see the 5th year in the NFL anyway. There had to be something else? That is crazy pants.

    Exactly, dude is worth millions today, never has to work or play football again if he invests wisely.. I don't feel sorry for him.. It's not like the Alex Smith injury where he almost had his leg amputated and was out for 2 years..

    Dak broke his ankle, a few rods, pins and screws and solid rehab and he'll be back next year, he's still young too.. No biggie..

    I see what your saying, but when your talking those types of numbers, in my opinion the risk doesn't outweigh the reward.

    First glance I would take Philly until I look at their schedule. Its brutal and they're missing a ton of guys. Dallas almost a lock. They can outscore people enough times to go 7-9

    Prescott has benefited from one of the best offensive lines in football since day 1. He has noticeably struggled when key lineman like Tyron Smith and Travis Frederick were out

    Is he really that much better than Dalton? I guess he is but only because my opinion of Dalton is very low

    He had an insurance policy I'm sure----hell-it might have paid him more!

    Life is crazy. You can fall down the stairs, get in a car accident, slip on a banana peel at the deli, etc, etc,

    That's why I don't understand some of these holdouts. I would tell my agent to get me the contract as soon as humanly possible and I'll sign it. Once the check cleared, then I'd get back to work.

    Prescott was maybe 8th best QB and thats being generous. You just don't turn down $36/mil a year or whatever it was. Jameis Winston and Cam Newton now make like $1.8/year combined. Dak is an idiot
