    Spagnola: Stop It All, Dak's Not Going Anywhere

    This was bad timing, this guy in the locker room at the health club attracting my attention with, "Hey, Mr. Football Guy." This came maybe two hours after hearing someone on a morning TV show declare, as if headline news, that Dak Prescott is returning to quarterback the Dallas Cowboys. Didn't think he deserved a logical answer like if the Cowboys cut or traded Dak come March, they would incur $89 million in salary cap dead money, and if they did so in March of 2024 before the final year of his four-year, $160 million contract expires, the dead money would total $39.9 million. Or, to drag out that ol' Bill Parcells line about difficulty of simply finding another one, "You can't just go down to Texaco and get one."


    What's Next? Cowboys Should Run It Back at RB

    There are positions the Dallas Cowboys are still trying to master, as far as consistency is concerned, but the role of running back isn't one of them. If anything, the problem is they have too much talent at the position, if there is such a thing (ahem, there isn't), and that raises questions about who should take the lead between Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard.
