    Takeaway Tuesday: Coaching Remains Cowboys Biggest Issue

    It's tough to imagine the football team turning things around after their last performance against the in which they were outscored 28-14 by another mediocre NFL team. Hopes were up after was brought in and was fired as the OL coach, but once again, the Cowboys failed to deliver.

    It's a bad time to be a Cowboys'fan as it's been for more than 20 years now.

    Without further ado, here are this week's takeaways!

    Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup are a legit duo

    As bad as this looked overall on the field last night, wide receivers had a great game. Specifically Amari Copper and impressed as a duo. Gallup hadn't seen many opportunities this season but Cooper's presence on the field helped his case a lot. ended the night with a touchdown, but Gallup should continue to get the most snaps between the two.

    As for Cooper, he didn't disappoint. His ability to consistently create separation last night should be promising for moving forward.

    Coaching Remains Cowboys' Biggest Issue

    and Jason Garrett are failing. Through nine weeks, they are the biggest issue on this football team. Despite trading their first rounder a couple of weeks ago for Cooper, the team found itself on third and sixteen twice on the game.

    Both times they opted to throw a screen, like they've done frequently on third and long situations throughout the season. It's pretty frustrating to give away a first rounder for a receiver to improve the and watch them throw a screen pass twice in the same situation.

    Let's also talk about 's carries. Even though the offense made multiple mistakes on offense and the game felt like a huge loss, the game was at 21-14 in the third quarter. Down by only one possession in the third quarter, the Cowboys ran the ball twice the rest of the night.

    There is no better skill position player on this offense than Ezekiel Elliott. Don't give up on him when you're down by seven! That's on the but at some point, the needs to make things right as well. Neither did.

    Sean Lee's absence will surely hurt

    During the first half of the season, rightfully made Cowboys Nation feel better about the idea of not having Lee on the field. In previous years, the would crumble entirely without their best . This wasn't the case in 2018 before the Titans arrived at .

    Lee will be out for a while and this defense will miss him on the field. Even if they have done better without him as of late, his presence on the field is needed when your offense isn't working at all.

    Yes Sean Lee not being there hurts but not being able to get off the field 11 out of 14 times is just plain horrible and all that was there wasn’t a pass rush after the first few possessions and our offense not being able to sustain some drives and give our Def a break was crucial as well… Our Boyz have ZERO direction and ZERO motivation and they NEED a NEW Head Coach and OC plain and simple! Jerry please STOP thinking that firing mid-season is gonna hurt ANYTHING!

    I agree totally. Jerry has too much pride and enjoys hiring Pawns who will do what he says when he says. Jerry wants to win a Super Bowl and he doesn’t have a true football mind like Jimmy Johnson.

    Also take a look at what Troy Aikman said, the hiring of coaches to this point since the last Super Bowl. Dave Campo, Wade Phillips, Bill Parcells, Chan Gailey. Also Jason Garrett, none have been able to even get the Cowboys to the NFC Championship Game. I believe Jerry enjoys mediocrity and he’s so blind to that fact or he keeps going and he keeps getting older and he needs a fresh mine there. He needs to fire himself from being the GM / president and give it to someone who can run this team.
