Dak Prescott has been exceptional, and Colin is ready to call him a franchise quarterback. There’s a compelling argument to be made for Dallas sticking with him because they have the momentum, but Colin thinks the driving force of the Cowboys success is the offensive line. They make anyone that’s put behind them look like Hall of Famers. Colin would still start Tony Romo is he’s back and healthy.
“This story isn’t just Dak, it’s overwhelmingly the offensive line. You think I’m wrong? Ezekiel Elliott now leads the NFL in rushing, by a lot. Darren McFadden, who’s gone milk carton, you can’t find him, rushed for 1,000 yards with this line. Demarco Murray looked like the second best running back to Adrian Peterson in the league behind this offensive line.”
Lost in the Colin Kaepernick saga is the story of Alex Smith’s resilience. As Kaepernick was getting crushed in his first start of the season, Smith was busy leading the Chiefs to a win on the road against the rival Raiders. Smith didn’t regress after he was benched for Kaepernick, he moved on to more success. He may go down as the most underrated quarterback in the last decade in the NFL.
Aaron Rodgers is struggling and Colin thinks that being “California cool” and condescending is not a good luck now that he’s playing so poorly. If you don’t people right on when you’re up, it can be rough when you’re down. Right now, Rodgers is down.
Also, it’s Where Colin was right, where Colin was wrong through 7 weeks of college football, and 6 weeks in the NFL.
