CB Anthony Brown a Major Culprit in Cowboys’ Week 1 Loss

Anthony Brown started his 42nd career game for the last night; a true achievement for any player taken in the 6th round of the . But that’s probably the only nice thing you can say after the cornerback struggled mightily and was a major contributor in Dallas’ loss to the .

Anthony got worked over by Tampa QB and WR in the early portion of the game. By the end of the night, statistics showed the ’ corner was almost completely useless against the Bucs’ receivers.

Even if 2nd-round was healthy and not currently on IR, Brown would likely have still started this game as a reliable veteran. But last night was a painful reminder that Anthony, while a reliable backup, is not someone you want going up against premiere NFL receiving talent on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, Dallas’ investments at CB this year haven’t had time to mature. Joseph and might be joining in the top three one day but right now it’s the veterans Brown and getting those snaps.

Everyone is entitled to a bad night and Brown has had good moments in his five NFL years. Last night’s performance might not cost him the starting job immediately, but it could lead to more opportunities for and the rookies in the very near future.

2021 is likely Anthony Brown’s last season in Dallas; a projected casualty in 2022. Hopefully he can improve from what we saw against Tampa Bay or else he may wind up spending much of it on the bench.

What do you think?

  1. As bad as Anthony Brown played against the bucs, Quinn mite as well start one of the rookies, it’s not like they would’ve done any worse!! Actually, I’m sure they would’ve done better, cause there’s no possible way to do worse than Anthony Brown did!! We just need to go sign a veteran free agent, maybe Richard Sherman, or I’m sure there’s other corners out there that are better than Anthony Brown is!! I haven’t looked to see who’s still available on the open market lately, but I guarantee there will be a few out there we can sign that’ll be better than Brown is!! We just can’t let Brown play for us anymore….. Especially against good receivers!!
