  • Now the Cowboys are going to go back to the basics and feed Zeke the ball like they should have been doing all along. Andy will play well. The defense will play better because they won't be on the field as much. And just like that they won't be missing Dak

  • Yes Dalton can take the Boys to the playoffs. Sadly, the defense can’t. So, long painful season. Next year...maybe!

  • They can easily make playoffs with Dalton. Real question is can they make it without Tyron Smith? Losing him was as bad as losing Dak. That there other two best starting linemen were already out and you'd chalk this season up as a loss, if it weren't for the legendary, record breaking bad division. If they make the playoffs expect an early exit and hope Nolan gets the boot and they can go back to 4-3 and draft a couple D starters.

  • "Dak was carrying this football team" LMAO......Does anyone understand how this team was suppose to be built around Elliot until the hired a Back up QB as the OC. Sure dak now puts up numbers but he is also turning it over more and going 3 and out more. When Elliot was the focus we took time of the clock forcing teams to change there game plan.

    • I don't know why they pay you guys to make analysis But if you remember the Miami dolphins from back in the day when Bob G was the quarterback he would never play a whole season Don Stock was the backup quarterback and he carried the dolphins to the playoffs on more than one occasion and when Bob griese would get healthy and come back and play in the playoffs they would loose so Andy Dalton yes is capable of getting the cowboys to the playoffs. We have great receivers Andy Dalton had AJ Green to throw to for some years he throws a better deep ball than Dak does no hate on Dak I have nothing but love for Dak Prescott but the cowboys receivers are the key now.

    Dennis PerryDennis Perry12 ditë më parë
  • It is ludicrous that so many so called experts don't believe the offense will be better even thought it was on Sunday after Dak got hurt. Dalton was actually more efficient and had a higher average. He is a more accurate passer and if he can use that accuracy to convert on 3rd down early in the game it will extend drives and help the offense and at the same time keep the defense off the field. I also think that he is a better deep ball thrower which might make teams respect that more and give Zeke more room to run.

  • yeah what did Dallas offense do when they came out they came out throwing the ball not running the ball off the field and make other feel throw the ball throw the ball throw the ball what's an event come out throw the ball throw the ball throw the ball and that's how they get behind there not a throwing team since Prescott's became the quarterback he is great in garbage time but he's lost nearly twice as many games as he's one and the last 2 years he is not a winning quarterback when he has to throw the ball yard dummies

  • if the defense is not on the field they cannot give up the yardage and points now can they

    Billy HillBilly Hill12 ditë më parë
  • when you can't stop somebody what's the recipe for winning ball control because you keep your weakest part of your team off the field if the defense is the weakest part of your team and you keep them off the field as much as possible that's why you run the ball you don't try to go out there having a shootout will the quarterback was not capable a winning shootouts Prescott's real good against lousy teams that can't win you put him up the teams the midget teams he loses he is not that type of quarterback they will go back to playing the way they did his first two years within the dolphin run the ball throw when you have to keep the defense off the field because one of them winning the defense was on the field list than half of the game since they went on the dive and losing the dependents built on the field over half the game what makes sense keep on defense it's the worst part of your team field more offense more just don't want to see another quarterback loses job does the white Corvette and come in and do the job just as well if not better and that's the fact Jack

  • Cowboys offense will not be the topic of discussion if they miss the playoffs. If they miss the playoffs, odds are it will be because the defense can’t stop people from scoring. They are showing zero discipline on D.

  • 15 points were from the offense turning the ball over (pick6, fumble inside the 20) 1 of the tds called back was a fake punt (special teams, the other the guy picked was the guy who got beat) 3 50 yard fg attempts 211 pass yards allowed 85 rushing yards allowed Defense played average. They didn’t “give up 30 points to the giants “

  • It so funny to see all these reporters hang on Daks nuts and show no love for dalton. Wait until Andy starts putting up big numbers and they will be taking it all back. Dalton has pocket awareness and a better arm than Dak. They act like Dak was such a good running QB saying that this offense will become more vanilla with dalton. Idk what there smoking because dalton knows how to elude the pass rush and not run right into like dak. Zeke will get more yards because dalton is going to spread the field out because defenses know that dallas actually has a Pure passer. Andy dalton didn’t get the name red rifle for nothing. You want to know Dak’s nickname from shannon sharpe “Dink n Dak”. We all know Dak can’t throw he just a game manager and picks all his stats up during the last 2 minutes of the game because defenses have stop playing and probably are tried of zeke running into them.

  • Andy Dalton is a very good QB. It just depends on the o line as well as their entire defense. I still think the Bengals should have kept Dalton and drafted an offensive lineman instead of Joe Burrow.

  • Dak put them in a position to win games? Like the interceptions and sacks and fumble from the offense and dak? Lol they have put so much pressure o the defense thats why they always collapse and all that number dak put in are garbage time numbers. Stop the pitiness on Dak - i get his injured but he is not as good as andy. Winning starts now.

  • Cowboys diehard since 1982 NFC Title Game at Candlestick when i was 10 years old. That said my heart hurt for Dak last sunday despite being one of the harshest critics of his play over the past two seasons in particular. Ive said it over and over. Dalton is far more accurate as a passer. In specific when it comes to short and intermediate passes, even more specifically short simple throws. I feel that Dalton will function better in the passing game and will not hold on to the bowl as much yet he won't take tons of sacks while not hurting you with picks. If weren't for the horrific defense which is clearly a coaching issue more than anything else, i would love this teams chances to get to and go deep in the NFC playoffs. Thats if there defense was just decently coached. This Nolan guy is in over his head. That makes it McCarthy's fault. He hired him for the wrong reason.

Sorry Dak, you should have taken the very good deal the Cowboys offered you. Maybe it wasn't the highest number figure amount: BUT, no "State Income Tax' in TX. Dak, ... sigh..... Duh.

  • I honestly think the Cowboys will win that division. And I am *not* a Cowboys fan. I always root against the Cowboys. But the Eagles, Giants, & Skins are trash. Actually; it feels like the AFC has become more powerful & interesting this season. I can't help feeling good for the Bills & Raiders. Plus I think the Patriots are really interesting with Cam. How good can the Browns do? Especially in a division with the Ravens & Steelers. The NFC just seems crappy is this division? Is Brees finished? Sadly, it doesn't look like Brady has much left. I was hoping the Buccs might be worthwhile this year. Not much to hold my interest since I don't care about the Packers.

  • What's even more sickening is the Cowboys have a very lethal offense. No doubt Dalton can make things work and no doubt they can run the ball pass the ball or whatever they need to do. Problem isn't the fact they are scoring 30+ points a game but their defense is allowing just as many if not more points then they are scoring. Nearly all of their losses were by a possession and if the defense is able to make even a couple more key stops then maybe they can actually win. If anyone wants proof with how bad their defense is they beat the Giants 37-34. The Giants of all teams scored over 30 points... Yeah gonna need them to figure out what to do with their swiss cheese defense and at least get some descent players. I get they are plagued with injuries but you can't just let every team run up the score on you.
