Takeaway Tuesday: Amari Cooper Proving to be Worth It

Just when all hope was lost, the Dallas went on the road and surprised with a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Both on and , it was a game that showed us plenty of silver linings to be excited about. While a playoff run certainly remains pretty difficult to accomplish, at least the team isn’t leaving without a fight.

The last Cowboys’ victory came approximately a month ago, so it is with great pleasure that I share with you this week’s edition of “Takeaway Tuesday!”

Leighton Vander Esch Is A Stud, And Should Be For A Long Time

Vander Esch Among Best Cowboys’ Players

Just before last game, I wrote about how could be in contention for . Playing on (on national TV), the helped his case a lot with 13 solo tackles and an interception.

Little by little, he’s making sure the Cowboys know they can move on from frequently injured down the road. Vander Esch can play. Forget about him being an impressive rookie, he’s currently one of the best players on this .

Scott Linehan Shouldn’t be Off the Hook

As any Cowboys fan, I loved the win. There were quite a few things to like about the offense on Sunday, but there’s no denying play calling could’ve been way better. As much as the Dallas Cowboys are still in the hunt in a mediocre division, should remain on the .

took the Cowboys to the 5-yard line by leaping over a human at full speed and right after the Cowboys stopped using him on that drive. Against the Titans, the offense found itself on third and 16 twice and ran a screen pass. In Philadelphia, they were on third and 16 once and they ran a RB screen once again.

Dallas has left a lot of points on the field this year and in big part thanks to play calling. Linehan shouldn’t be safe right now.

Amari Cooper Proving to be Worth It

After two games wearing , is feeling a lot better about trading a first rounder for . On the field, he’s proven to be an impact player. An impact that has been felt immediately, by the way. Out of 11 catches, Cooper has gotten the Cowboys’ offense ten first downs.

Versus the Eagles, though, his impact is felt beyond his single stat line.

On Sunday Night, he accounted for six catches and 75 yards. He helped QB get 270 yards through the air and most importantly, to spread the football.

That stat above is an underrated one. No in next year’s Draft would have the kind of impact Amari Cooper is having on this football team. In the long run, lots of people could be eating their words after heavily criticizing the Cowboys’ for the two-times Pro Bowler wide receiver. Hopefully, that’s the case.
