What has this Cowboys season done to his negotiations? Will the Cowboys put a franchise tag on him? Plus, the Cowboys currently sit with the 4th overall pick, so what should they do at 4? Should they consider trading down? 1:42 What do you think Dak Prescott os going thru right now? 8:13 What has this season done to Dak Prescott's negotiations and strategy and also what are the Cowboys going to do especially if he's not signed by the draft? 12:26 Possible franchise tag on Dak Prescott.

Cowboys 2020 season payoff?| Cowboys Beat with Ari Temkin and Patrick Conn
Cowboys Beat with Ari Temkin and Patrick Conn Episode 110: What Is The Payoff For 2020?  Sponsored by Miller Lite and BetOnline Ari Temkin (@arisports)  on why losses piling up for the Cowboys actually helps them get closer to a Super Bowl than wins in 2020. So what's the payoff? Why believe that this team is close to a Super Bowl when there's mounting evidence to the contrary... 0:52 As of now the Dallas Cowboys will be playing the Baltimore Ravens December 7th, a week from Monday, a long break to try and pick up the pieces of a terrible season. 1:57 The Thanksgiving day loss to the Washington Football Team, the decision to go for it on 4th and inches, and the fake punt deep in their own territory. 4:23 Ari Temkin: "This is a team that does not have good coaching, coaching cannot make up the difference for them, bad defense, bad tackling, bad in the secondary, and a team that turns the ball over too much. That's why they are 3-8" 6:00 The more the Cowboys lose, the more likely they are to win a Super Bowl because they are more likely to end up with a top 5 draft pick. Any hope for this team to win a Super Bowl rests with Dak Prescott and a healthy offensive line.   10:44 BetOnline Ad Read 11:55 How much blame should Mike McCarthy get for this season? 15:13 The Cowboys are going to break their all time allowed scoring record and thats not all on the defense, a huge factor is the amount of turnovers.  21:53 Miller Lite Ad Read. 24:03 How far away are the Cowboys from a Super Bowl win?   Listen and Subscribe to the Cowboys Beat with Ari Temkin and Patrick Conn on iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and the CLNS Media Network mobile app.

HE went into this season thinking it was a ten win team, and realized during the first game they did not look like a ten win team. 11:08 The younger players on the Dallas Cowboys need to be given a chance to play, and to see if they can play at an NFL level.
