    Cowboys Disappointing Loss to Eagles the Theme of 2019

    The has a chance to win the East on Sunday but fell flat on both sides of the ball against an undermanned Philadelphia Eagles team. The 17-9 loss displayed the issues the Cowboys have been struggling with all season and it looks like their season may come to a close after their contest.

    It didn't start out well as the Cowboys struggled to stop the Eagles' no-name group of wide receivers as they marched down the field for two first quarter scores and a 10-0 lead. Players like Greg Ward Jr. and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside came up with big third down conversions early and Dallas Goedert had the best game of his career.

    On the offensive side of the ball, the Cowboys wide receivers struggled with drops and has the occasional miss that kept them from sustaining drives and scoring touchdowns.

    Ultimately, it puts the Cowboys in a precarious position in the and all but seals the fate for much of the Cowboys .

    In the most important game of the year the Cowboys fell flat and couldn't find a rhythm throughout the game.

    The result is attempting to make a last ditch comeback on a drive that saw Dak Prescott overthrow a wide open on a deep ball, which likely would have resulted in a score, and dropping a pass that would have put the Cowboys deep in Eagles territory.

    What was an opportunity to clinch the NFC East turned out to be another in a long line of woulda, coulda, shoulda games. Seemingly every loss this season was a game the Cowboys had a chance to win or should have won but couldn't get the consistency in play from either side of the hall to pull out the victory.

    This game was a lot like the Packers, Jets, Vikings, Bills, or Bears games where they got down early and couldn't get enough going quickly enough to mount an effective comeback. And that's really the story of this season.

    When the couldn't get anything going early, the couldn't hang in there either allowing an early double-digit lead.

    The loss in Philadelphia likely ends the season for the Dallas Cowboys. They'd need to beat the and have the beat the Eagles in week 17 to win the NFC East and get into the . Half of that scenario seems likely, while the Eagles should be able to take care of business against the Giants.

    If indeed the Cowboys are eliminated from postseason contention next week, it won't take long for them to make changes.

    doesn't have a contract beyond 2019, so week 17 will be the final game of his nine-year tenure coaching the Dallas Cowboys. It will come to an end unceremoniously as the Cowboys were never able to advance beyond the of the playoffs.

    , disappointed by another season of disappointment will move to get the best coach he can to come in and maximize this roster that he, . , and Jason Garrett have put together.

    The Dallas Cowboys are a sloppy team that has underperformed and has failed to meet expectations in 2019. They need to take a really hard look at themselves and at the changes they've made over the years to see what, if anything, can be done to right the ship. The Dallas Cowboys can't afford to head into Dak Prescott's contract without a coach that can help them reach the next level consistently.

    It's been long enough.

    Let this season be done! It is too brutal to keep hoping something will happen this season when all we can see is no effort from the Dallas Cowboys!
    We have been waiting for over 20 years what’s one more.

    I have been through some DIFFICULT loses as a LIFELONG Cowboys fan. The NOmo fumble, JJ FIRING a coach after winning the BOWL, however this one is ranking in my top FIVE. At the end of the day, it DOES NOT MATTER who JJ decides to coach HIS team. HE needs to FIRST fire HIMSELF!!

    Bill Herring

    @kda3, JJ isn’t gonna give up the GM reigns. If he was to look at the past drafts & see ALL the mistakes he’s made over the years, he would have fired himself years ago. The likes ofTaco Charlton over Watt, this year’sTriston Hill ( non factor), & too many others to mention.

    Garret pulls Amari Cooper when all the chips are on the line. We saw it happen with the Oakland Raiders when Al Davis sat Marcus Allen on the bench when the Raiders needed him. These interfering owners like to point fingers everywhere but themselves. Jerry Jones is the problem with the Cowboys. He hires the coach and interferes with the running of the team. If Cowboy fans want a winning team,they should do what the 49er fans did when they got fed up with Jed York monkeying around with the team:Hire an airplane with a banner reading” Jed and 49ers should mutually part ways” to fly around the stadium only revise it to say “Jones and the Cowboys should mutually part ways”. Jed York disappeared after that banner and stopped interfering with running the team. Maybe Jones would take the hint.
