I brought this topic up in another thread about these QB's pay getting out of hand. These guys had a general discussion
in light of the issues with Dak Prescott getting signed by the Cowboys.

The price is very steep, but you have to pay it when you have a franchise QB. Yes, it makes it harder to put a Super Bowl caliber roster around the QB, but it's not impossible for a good organization. There's just less margin for error. What absolutely sinks you is when you dish out the huge contract to a mid-level QB. Is that what the Cowboys are about to do for Dak? I hope so.

I would assume they let him play on the tag to see how he does with that offense. of course if he does really well, it will cost them in offseason negotiations but he's already asking a pretty high price from what I gather. good problem to view from afar.

This is a great point. If you look at the majority of Super Bowl winning teams (sans Brady) most of them either had a QB in the first 5 years of a rookie deal, or a veteran in the later stages of his career on a short contract. Money that was spent of better players at other positions, and roster needs that were addressed.

Eagles were no exception when they won it.
