i feel like this is an underrated point. i dont know the stats behind it, but the cowboys do not seem to ever have great field position. and dak does take the blame for everything, his fault or not. he is a a great leader.We had a top flight O line 1 season. Bad WR corps for the first 2 1/2 seasons including TEs. Has one of the worst average starting field positions since he's been in the NFL due to a defense that does not get turnovers or 3 and outs on a consistent basis along with poor Special teams play.
Dak is a winner and does not put this team in bad spots. Other teams get to rely on turnovers and special teams play to get scoring. Not dak he has to drive 80 yards down the field every single time he puts together a scoring drive. I bet in 4 years he has had less than a handful of scoring td drives where the team had to go less than 40 yards. Other teams have multiple in one game.
If you think Dak doesn't deserve the $$ when he has been already been paid $19.1 million less than Wince and $19.6 million less than Goff. You are crazy especially when there is literally ZERO help from the defense or special teams.
PS you wish Danny Dog Crap looked half as good as Dak did his rookie year
i bet you that the patriots are annually in the top of the league in average starting field position. special teams is extremely important. they value players like brandon bolden and matthew slater, who have been staples on the roster even though they provide next to nothing on offense.
the combination of a severe lack of turnovers, poor starting field position, and drive killing penalties is hard to overcome.
