The debate about giving him a huge contract rages among the faithful. While there are areas where he can improve, Prescott offers a huge breath of fresh air compared to some of the non-Tony Romo quarterbacks we’ve seen over the last 20 years. Michael Irvin said it best:Some fans are okay with Prescott as the quarterback, but are worried about the financial implications of having a $30+ million franchise on the roster. It’s true that having a player chew up so much money inevitably has an affect on what the team can do. The biggest concern on everyone’s mind has to do with parting ways with talented players due to not being able to afford them.Well, phooey on that. That’s not going to be an issue.Keeping their stars will come at a price, but they’re already paying it. Not being able to retain players such as Ron Leary Charles Haley Jersey Stitched , Anthony Hitchens, and Cole Beasley are the most recent examples. And there’s a good chance La’el Collins is the next. The Cowboys will have to continue being cautious about who they re-sign, and some players won’t return.But that price will not mean they have to let go of their All-Pro players. They don’t have to pick between Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper. They can have both. And if the front office chooses so, must continue to be smart about where their money goes. Investing in youth is a good start. Investing in high character players who can max out their potential also helps.Not only are the Cowboys not in a big hole cap wise, but they also have already assembled a winning team. They don’t have gaping holes in the roster that needs major attention. As long as this team continues to draft well, the Cowboys will sustain a competitive roster. They aren’t forced to mitigate their talent problems through overpriced free agents like many other teams in the league are. Which brings us to...THE WINDOWHow many times have we heard people talk about how Jerry Jones wasted the Romo years? While the team went to the playoffs four times with Romo under helm, there were many seasons where this team just didn’t have enough collective talent to go very far. Jones always believed the team was real close and it led to some suspect decisions like trading away a first-round pick for wide receiver Roy Williams.The Cowboys have a very good team now. Keeping this team intact is important to sustain success for years to come. This isn’t about taking a chance on an unknown player to help push you up a level Youth DeMarcus Ware Jersey , but rather investing into a proven talent to keep the team firing on all cylinders.Pushing money down the road comes with a price, but if the team has a legitimate shot at the title, why not pull the trigger? The Cowboys have done a great job grinding away at putting together a competitive roster, but as Matt Damon said in the move Rounders - if you’re too careful, you’ll whole life can become a grind.Prescott’s a tried-and-true player whose high-priced contract would be perfect for restructuring. This practice may not be ideal, but it’s a tool. And Jerry Jones and company needs to use all the tools at their disposal to help bring number six to Dallas. If it means keeping the band together for a tour that lasts until February, I’m all in. The Dallas Cowboys fired offensive line coach Paul Alexander less than halfway into his first season with the team DeMarcus Ware Jersey Stitched , marking the first time for coach Jason Garrett to make an in-season change to his coaching staff.Alexander's dismissal was announced Monday after the Cowboys (3-4) had their bye over the weekend. The offensive line has played below expectations, with quarterback Dak Prescott having already been sacked 23 times this season."While approaching the midpoint of the season, and going through an overall evaluation of our entire operation during the bye week, we felt that this move would serve the best interests of our team moving forward," Garrett, the Cowboys full-time head coach since 2011, said in a statement.Former Cowboys offensive lineman Marc Colombo Youth Dak Prescott Jersey , who had served as assistant offensive line coach since 2016, was promoted to take over as offensive line coach. The team also said former offensive line coach Hudson Houck was returning to work with Colombo and the offensive staff in an advisory role.The Cowboys have been without four-time Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick since he was diagnosed last summer with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological disorder that causes weakness in various parts of the body.But they still have two other linemen who have been to multiple Pro Bowls in Tyron Smith and Zack Martin. Rookie starter Connor Williams was a second-round draft pick earlier this year and right tackle La'el Collins is a former first-round pick.Alexander was an assistant coach with the Cincinnati Bengals for 23 years before he was hired by Garrett last offseason. That was after the Cowboys fired Frank Pollack following five seasons in Dallas, the last three as offensive line coach."We have great respect and admiration for Paul and what he has accomplished in a very successful career in the NFL," Garrett said. "These are not easy decisions to make at any time of the year, but we will move ahead with the utmost confidence in what Marc Colombo and Hudson Houck will bring to our team in their new roles."The Cowboys are 29th in the NFL with 183 yards passing per game.
