    Michael Irvin: “Cowboys may be the Worst Team in the National Football League”

    The have been a disaster in 2020, to say the least. They currently sit at 2-5 (third in the ) and have lost four of their last five games. Since 's in Week 5, the Cowboys have only managed 13 points on while giving up 63 on in their last two games.

    Cowboys legend and Hall of Famer Michael Irvin has reached his breaking point with this season's version of his former team. On Tuesday, he took to the airwaves to voice his displeasure and didn't hold back one bit.

    “I believe the Cowboys right now may be the worst team in the National Football League,” Irvin said on 95.7 The Game. “I know the Jets haven't won a game. Would you take the Cowboys over the Jets right now? How can anybody pick the Cowboys at any time when you see what's happening right, especially what's going on with that defense. I don't even know how to explain this. This is just an all-time low for my Cowboys. It hurts. The difference is, I know the Jets look bad. But the Jets were expected to look bad. The Cowboys had people really thinking, including myself, that they were ready to be -bound, and they've been a Super bust.”

    After the Cowboys 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team on Sunday, Irvin tweeted that the Cowboys “had him in the grave” while watching the vs and Game 5 of the World Series. Earlier that day on , Irvin said that the Cowboys problems were fixable during a discussion with former NFL coach Steve Mariucci.

    “We hear everybody's complaining about some of the calls from the defensive coaches, and you can make the calls that are more suitable to the talent that you have on the football field,” Irvin said. “But these players also, there's technique issues that they can also fix. I watched (Cardinals receiver) come screaming right down the middle of the football field – You guys, how are you letting people cross your face and get this wide open? These are not issues. These are technique issues. That's angle issues. Yes, you can fix some of those issues, and you can play better and still win the division.”

    The Cowboys offense is still third in the NFL in yards per game (418.0). However, their 16 turnovers lead the league and their opponents have scored 76 points off of them which is a recipe for disaster.

    It's been a complete nightmare since the season started for the Cowboys defensively. They rank 27th in yards (408.1) and are 32nd in rushing yards (178.3) and points allowed (34.7). Besides the season opener vs the and their recent game vs Washington, no opponent has scored fewer than 34 points against the Cowboys defense.

    The saving grace for the Cowboys is that the rest of the East is as much of a mess as they are. Only a game and a half separate the division-leading at 2-4-1 from the last-place at 1-6, with the Cowboys and Washington tied in the middle at 2-5.

    If the Cowboys are going to turn this season around they need to start this Sunday when they hit the road to take on the Eagles. They'll take over sole possession of first place in the NFC East with a win.

    Will the Cowboys avoid a third straight loss Sunday? Only time will tell.
