CeeDee Lamb on 2021 Cowboys: “Definitely Won’t See 6-10”

The were supposed to win the and make their first playoff appearance since 2018, at least on paper. However, games have to be played on the field, and what could've gone wrong did go wrong for the Cowboys. ravished the roster, and they never recovered and missed the for the second consecutive season.

One of the few bright spots this season was the play of rookie who broke the Cowboys rookie record for receptions and became the first in league to catch at least five passes in his first six games. On Wednesday, Lamb was asked about the expectations for the Cowboys in 2021, and he doesn't see a repeat of this season.

“Definitely won't see 6-10,” Lamb said on NFL Network's Good Morning Football.“We obviously felt like we let ourselves short, if you will. We had as much excitement about last season just as well as y'all did just going into the season and the way it went down. You hate to see it, but it's all part of it, and we know that.

“The NFL is a tough game. A lot of guys want to be great. A lot of guys want to stay healthy but obviously, that's not the case. And for us as a team, we kind of took a blow on the bug, if you will. But going into next season we're looking forward to better preparation and staying healthy.”

Injuries wrecked the offensive side of the ball immensely. was lost in the season opener with a torn ACL. went down with a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. The was without for the entire season, missed 14 games, and missed six games.

Defensively, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows either. (7) and (6) both missed significant time at the spot. The position took a hit with missing half the season, on the sidelines for six games, and rookie missing four games. Also, second-year was out for two games as well.

That's a lot for any team to handle regardless of the remaining personnel or who is on the staff. The Cowboys will also need upgrades on the roster to make the postseason for the first time in three years. With so many injuries on the offensive line, the Cowboys should explore bringing in reinforcements via the . There's a need for an anchor at , a linebacker (or multiple) for insurance, and the will need more bodies with several players headed for .

The Cowboys have a lot to sort out before next season, but if they're healthy as Lamb mentioned, there's little doubt that they can reach the playoffs in a not so great division like the East.
