    Dallas Cowboys Good, Bad, and Ugly From Week 4 Against Cleveland Browns

    If someone told you before the game that would throw for over 500 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns would you have guessed the won or lost? I don't know about you, but I would have guessed a victory. Sadly, the Browns thoroughly trounced the Cowboys yesterday 49-38 instead.

    I really don't know what to say about the way the Dallas Cowboys are playing this season. It's simply a disgrace and we can point fingers at anyone, from top to bottom, and play the blame game till the cows come home. If not for a bit of good luck, the Cowboys should be winless through four weeks of the .

    Win or lose though, I have a job to do and as always after a game I try to identify what I believe to be The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly for the Dallas Cowboys. With everything that took place yesterday against the Cleveland Browns that's probably easier said than done. However, I'll give it my best shot anyway. Here we go…

    The Good

    I really hate to give the Dallas Cowboys any praise with the way they played Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns, but for me the good yesterday goes to . The Cowboys rookie WR didn't lead the team in receptions or yards, but he did account for 79 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns yesterday. He also had an impressive 27 yard . No. 88 continues to impress despite the Cowboys self sabotaging ways.

    The Bad

    Is it too obvious to go with the Dallas Cowboys here? I don't think so, that's why I believe they are the bad from this Week 4 matchup with the Cleveland Browns. I really don't know what 's was for the Browns , but it was a disaster. They had no answer for the and allowed Odell Beckham Jr to run wild all over the field. This might very well be the worst defensive play I've seen in the NFL in my lifetime. Sadly, I don't know if it will get better.

    The Ugly

    This game was pretty terrible from start to finish, but for me the ugly in Week 4 was the . From Mike Nolan's defensive game plan to the decision to start at , this loss falls just as much on the as it does the players. It's almost as if they're not really trying. , turnovers, self sabotaging, and poor play continues yet nothing is being done about it. Maybe and his coaching staff isn't the upgrade we were hoping for after all.

    What is your Dallas Cowboys good, bad, and ugly from Week 4?

    well said esp the part about not expecting the defense to get any better even against sub-par competiton.

    Jerry Jones gave Mike McCarthy a Ferrari with no brakes, plane and simple

    Whose bone headed decision was it to kick a short kick after closing the gap to 3 points with over 3 minutes left. With half a field to go to add on to their lead you just gave the game away after a valiant comeback. Of course we witnessed the result. I’m starting to see why Greenbay cut ties before the season ended.

    Jerry obviously doesn’t want to see his cowboys win another superbowl before he dies. He’s not getting any younger and this team isn’t getting any better. Bad coaching starting players who have no business starting and lastly having much more talented free agents sitting out there and doing nothing. I dont know if there either to cheap or just don’t care. Stephen and will maybe you should spend a little money and at least try to look like your trying to save the season.

    The Good: Jason Garrett is having the last laugh. Remember, he actually recommended McCarthy. The Bad: McCarthy. The Ugly: McCarthy…looks like he picked up where he left off…all my condolences Dallas…

    The Good: the offense is playing pretty good! The Bad: the defense couldn’t stop a good division 3 college team! The ugly :MN evidently doesn’t have a clue how to scheme a game plan to stop the opposing offenses that we face from week to week!

    By the way good article BM!!

    I see people blaming Mike Mccarthy, but he’s not the one running the defense, that’s Mike Nolan!! Mike Mccarthy is an offensive mind, and from what I can tell our offense is doing just fine…. Other than the turnovers!! Mike Mccarthy needs to find him a better defensive coordinator, our defense hasn’t changed that much from last season and we wasn’t even half this bad last season either, so it’s obvious it’s the coaching!! Although it wouldn’t hurt to sign a couple free agents to make the defense better!! But for me, I think Mccarthy is doing fine with the offense, he just needs to get rid of that ignorant defensive coordinator and find somebody else!!

    Agree with u Michael I’m dumbfounded that the cowboys tried that kick with over 3 mins and with a TO left. Not sure if it was an onside kick or what, but whatever it was it was either a horrible call or horrible execution. Prevented the cowboys from having the opportunity to stage a great comeback.

    This team will need to score a 100 pts every game to win but then the D will just give up 101
