Well Cowboys Nation, the Dallas Cowboys continue to take us on a roller coaster ride week in and week out and the Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks was no different. It ended up being a close game in the end, however, the Seahawks got the last laugh with the 38-31 victory.
The Dallas Cowboys head back home next week to take on the Cleveland Browns, which will hopefully get them back to the .500 mark. Before we get too far ahead of ourselves though, let’s get to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. As always, feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section.
Despite all the mental errors and mistakes, the Dallas Cowboys still showed quite a few positive things yesterday against the Seattle Seahawks. For me, the good from yesterday’s matchup was Aldon Smith, although I do believe Cedrick Wilson deserves a shout out. Smith ended up sacking Russell Wilson three times, bringing his total to five for the season if I’m not mistaken. He’s been without a doubt the Cowboys best free agent signing this year and it’s not even close.
No if’s, and’s, or but’s…the bad for me in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks was without a doubt the Dallas Cowboys self sabotaging play. Turnovers, penalties, blown assignments, and poor special teams play all but giftwrapped the game for the Seahawks yesterday afternoon. It was sickening to watch and sadly not all that unexpected considering it’s starting to become commonplace for them this year. It’s hard to win when you’re beating yourself and the Cowboys proved just that yesterday afternoon.
Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Dallas Cowboys in this Week 3 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. For me, that was the ugly this week. From start to finish the Cowboys played undisciplined and did just about everything within their power to give the game away. I admire their resiliency not to give up, but they absolutely deserved to lose. They made way too many mistakes in all three phases of the game, which in my opinion falls on Mike McCarthy’s shoulders. I think that’s completely unacceptable considering his coaching experience.
