of Jason Garrett’s contract as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. While we heard some reports and murmurings near the end of the season that the team would consider extending him over the offseason Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , you can put all of those talks to bed. There will be no extension per a report.This isn’t exactly shocking news if you’ve been paying attention over the last few weeks, as erratic as the Cowboys have been, but it is still a little jarring. For Jerry Jones to come out during the week leading up to the Super Bowl when there is so much going on (including things in Dallas with the NBA, Mavericks, and Kristaps Porzingis) is quite the statement. News of Jerry’s intent not to extend Jason Garrett trickled out just hours after the team announced that Kellen Moore would be serving as the team’s offensive coordinator this season. While Dallas didn’t say who would be calling plays for them, they are giving Garrett a first-year coordinator. As talented as Moore could wind up being, that is quite the corner to paint the head coach into.Many Cowboys fans have wanted this for some time, for Jason Garrett to have to coach with his job on the line. He did so during the 2014 season which was one of the best of his career. Five years later Jerry isn’t hiding anything, his message is loud and clear.It’s now or never. In terms of NFL starting quarterbacks, Dak Prescott is the greatest bargain in the league. With salaries for the most crucial position in the game soaring, he is playing for the Dallas Cowboys on a fourth-round rookie deal that is the equivalent of pocket change. While there have been other late-round success stories like Tom Brady, and the Cowboys had UDFA Tony Romo become their starter Dallas Cowboys Hats , Prescott may be unique in that he has been the starter from the first game of his career despite being such a late pick. Having him puts his team in very good shape in a division where the other three teams have various issues with the position. He is unquestionably underpaid, and at some point, perhaps this offseason, that is going to change.Prescott’s career, during which Dallas has gone 33-18, has won many over. But with the struggles in the latter half of 2017 and limited playoff success not all are convinced. Complicating things are the other star players the Cowboys are going to have to pay soon. There was a question raised by Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com about that.If you go to Twitter and read the replies to that, there are a lot who think Prescott is the guy you leave out in the cold. Allow me to present the argument as to why that would be a mistake. An NFL quarterback who can lead his team to wins in 65% of the games he plays is a precious commodity in a league where we just saw a season open with Blaine Gabbert, Sam Bradford, Joe Flacco, Eli Manning, Ryan Tannehill, Tyrod Taylor Dallas Cowboys Womens Hoodie , Case Keenum, Andy Dalton, Blake Bortles, and Ryan Fitzpatrick all starting for their teams. It is a simple fact that there are not enough legitimate starting quarterbacks for each of the 32 teams to have one. Based on how he performed this year, there is not much of a basis to argue Prescott was not better than all of the players listed above. Where he ranks among the remaining 20 starters is open for debate, but saying he does not belong among them is just ignoring facts, data, and logic. Prescott’s own history is seen by some as an argument that you don’t have to spend a lot of capital, either high draft picks or free agent cap costs, to get a true starter at the position. Brady and Romo also are used as examples. That completely disregards just how rare they are. Most successful starting quarterbacks cost a first-round pick, usually a high one. And the success rate for those is alarmingly inconsistent. While 2018 may turn out to have been a banner year for first round QBs, the verdict is hardly final. Let’s go back to 2016 as a starting point Womens Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , so we are able to look at only those who have three or more seasons of history since being selected, and consider all the first-round QBs taken since 2010. That list includes Paxton Lynch (a bullet accidentally dodged by Dallas), Bortles, Johnny Manziel (another somewhat near miss for the Cowboys, although not nearly as close as some in the media will tell you), E.J. Manuel, Tannehill, Brandon Weeden (who we saw up close and personal, but for negligible cost), Jake Locker, Gabbert, Christian Ponder www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com , Bradford, and Tim Tebow.The real message here is that there is no reliable pipeline of NFL quarterbacks. Some years produce multiple starters. Others are total busts. A team cannot just go into the draft with the expectation they will grab their future starter and all will be well, especially without a high pick or the ability to trade up into the first five spots. It is indeed rare that a team goes from one elite quarterback to another, the way Aaron Rodgers succeeded Brett Favre, or Andrew Luck came in behind Peyton Manning. More often, teams wind up taking a step back - sometimes off a cliff. Add in that to even get a realistic shot at a top-level QB usually means having to tank in effect, or invest huge amounts of free agent money with similar levels of risk (see the example of Alex Smith) and it is obvious just how difficult acquiring a true starter is.If you are in that group of 20 or so quarterbacks that can give their team a shot at the playoffs, you can, and will, demand to get paid. Look at the recent history of QB contracts, as provided by our own inestimable OCC in an exchange among our staff about how much Prescott would wind up getting:I don’t see much to argue with there. The team may want to shoot for the $31 to $32 million range with Prescott, but you can clearly see the trend. There is an argument to be made that he has not proven himself to the degree that Rodgers and Ryan have - but Stafford Dallas Cowboys T-Shirt , Garoppolo and Cousins haven’t, either, and their deals were pushing the ceiling up when they were done.Also consider that the recent tumult in the offensive coaching staff is an argument that Prescott was being held back under Scott Linehan. Now the team has gone all in to help him reach his perceived potential with Kellen Moore’s promotion and the hiring of Jon Kitna. That looks like a pretty good indication that they are willing to put a lot of money into his next deal as well. Further, the way the trend is clearly going means that getting a new contract done now will save them money in the long run, before other teams push that envelope even more. So brace yourselves. It is entirely feasible that Prescott’s second contract will set a new record, perhaps pushing to the $35 million per year level. The precedent certainly exists. And it may be worth every penny.
