Colin Cowherd: “With Dak starting this year, they felt like an 8-8 team. This morning with Dalton I feel like they’re a 7-9 or 8-8 team. The Dak situation is gutting, it’s awful, and it’s heartbreaking... Dak is a special dude and he’ll get paid eventually, and he will win games, but Dak and Dalton have one thing in common. They cannot overcome the structural realities of this franchise. You have a coach who doesn’t want to be challenged, and an owner who doesn’t want to be threatened, and I don’t think Dak or Dalton, as talented as they are, they can overcome the realities structurally that are Dallas. If Dallas was a friend, they would be a lot of fun, but you couldn’t trust them with money or taking you to the airport. They’re the tabloid at the supermarket, you can’t help but open it. I feel awful for Dak but he will overcome, and I’m happy for Andy Dalton, but I can’t feel differently about either one in the Dallas situation. Dak was struggling trying to overcome the Cowboys, and holding on trying to lead the Giants, and Andy Dalton was holding on for dear life at the end to narrowly beat them. Dak will be back, and will be paid by somebody. Dak is a great kid, and Dak’s injury will not define him, I just worry that the Cowboys will define him. Certain things in this franchise Dak nor Dalton can overcome.” (Full Segment Above)
