There’s no need to sugarcoat anything about the way the Dallas Cowboys played Sunday afternoon on the road against the Seattle Seahawks. Although winless so far this season, the Seahawks thoroughly manhandled the Cowboys in all three phases of the game and continued their domination over America’s Team.
I don’t know how you’re feeling today, but I’m personally still a little heated just thinking about the Dallas Cowboys performance yesterday. On second thought, I’m fed up and you should be too!
Normally, I would be telling all of you to remain patient because it’s still early in the season. But, I’m finding it really difficult to find any optimism in the way the Cowboys have played through the first three weeks of the 2018 season. That’s difficult for me to admit because I’m typically a glass half-full kind of person, but not today.
Today, my glass isn’t even half empty. It’s completely dry. Not even a drop of moisture remains. I’m that fed up and it’s way past time for some serious changes to be made!
Accountability has obviously been thrown out the window. When is Owner/General Manager Jerry Jones going to hold Head Coach Jason Garrett accountable for the poor coaching? When is Jason Garrett going to hold his players accountable for stupid mental mistakes? When are the players going to hold their teammates accountable?
Quarterback Dak Prescott and the Cowboys passing game continues to hurt offensive productivity. Pinpointing the problem seems to be an issue. No one really knows if the blame should be placed on Prescott or his receivers, but it’s probably a combination of both. The sad thing is, there really isn’t any glimmer of hope to build on.
With the struggles in the passing game, Ezekiel Elliott is finding it really difficult to find any running room. Opposing defenses will continue to stack the box against him. He was able to put up 100+ rushing yards on the Seahawks yesterday, but the Cowboys aren’t going to win games if he’s the only one showing any kind of production.
The Dallas Cowboys defense has been a bright spot so far this season, but they didn’t perform up to their best against the Seahawks either. The secondary unfortunately had a few blown coverages and it resulted in some easy touchdowns. It was truly unfortunate, because I believed Kris Richard was the difference maker. I was obviously mistaken.
Like I said, it’s time for a change. The Dallas Cowboys can’t continue to play the way they did against the Seattle Seahawks for the remainder of the season. If things continue as they are, they’d be lucky to finish 8-8. But, being just average seems to be acceptable for this organization anyways.
Unfortunately, I just don’t think we will see much change. If we don’t begin to see quite a bit of improvement before the Cowboys bye week, I’m personally going to start a petition to fire Jason Garrett and I’ll throw in Scott Linehan as well. Who’s with me!?
