Tweet Break: Cowboys Nation Comes Together for Preseason Opener

The Dallas Cowboys have officially played 60 minutes of football to start off their 2016 season. We did it! Cowboys Nation celebrated this occasion on Saturday by firing up the great Twitter machine to take in the Cowboys visit to Los Angeles against the Rams together.

In this bonus edition of Tweet Break here at Inside The Star, we’ll take a look at some of the best tweets from the fans, players, and media members of America’s Team.

Put Dak Prescott in the Ring of Honor!

The most refreshing site from the Cowboys’ loss to the Rams was undoubtedly backup-quarterback hopeful Dak Prescott – and his 2 TD performance on 10 completions in 12 attempts.

Jerry Jones out to eat with Stan Kroenke. TMZ camera guy asks why the Cowboys aren’t interested in Johnny Manziel. Jerry: “Dak Prescott.

In fact, Dak dazzled so much that he has become just the latest piece of evidence needed to tell Cowboys’ “fans” that some guy that thinks he’s still relevant in the NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel won’t ever be suiting up for the silver and blue.

At halftime, Dez Bryant said Dak Prescott is “special.

Prescott won over our hearts by immediately finding the Cowboys’ best wide receiver, as Dez Bryant suited up to quickly reclaim his dominance in the NFL by hauling in two passes on Dallas’ first offensive drive, with the latter going for a touchdown.

Not only did Prescott find a special #88 on the field, but Bryant also finds the Cowboys’ new rookie signal caller “special”. Pretty cool stuff.

Cowboys Haters in mid-season Form

Of course, when Cowboys’ fans wanted nothing more than to celebrate the fact that a quarterback with a chance to backup Tony Romo played competently, the haters came out in full form to remind us all that this was a preseason opener – the very same opener that we’ve waited 582 days for after Dez Bryant caught just another epic touchdown at Lambeu Field.

Stephen A Smith on Twitter

@Trueblue4lyphe I’m sorry. I like Dak, but is there some Nat’l Title on his resume that I’m missing?

Stephen A Smith on Twitter

@CowboysNation Not picking anyone. Just asking why are y’all acting like he’s the second coming already?

Naturally, our official Inside The Star Twitter account (@CowboysNation), responded further to this foolishness from Stephen A. Smith by presenting a list of college quarterbacks that have won national championships.

Josh Heupel, Ken Dorsey, Craig Krenzel, Matt Mauck, Matt Leinart, Vince Young, Chris Leak, Matt Flynn, Tebow, Greg McElroy, AJ McCarron

  1. This list is unimpressive.

2. No, we are not here to talk about Tim Tebow.

3. We ARE here to talk more about the Dallas Cowboys and their most recent football game, so let’s get to some more tweets.

How ‘Bout That Defense?

With the Cowboys’ offense expected to have some serious firepower this season, the defense could be in a situation where they merely have to bend and not break. Still, Cowboys’ analysts and fans everywhere are worried that this defense will do plenty of breaking despite the points the offense puts up, with a makeshift defensive line that only produced one sack on Saturday.

Speaking of breaking, and before we get to the Dallas front seven defensively –

Break on the ball!” – Every DB coach in the history of football “No.” – JJ Wilcox

As far as defensive bright spots, there were flashes from second-year Cowboy David Irving, along with an interception by Mark Nzeocha.

David Irving was the best of the DE. There is something to work with there. Showed up on film.
