Cowboys news: Mike McCarthy deals with discontent, Dak Prescott’s worth is realized

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ If you’re looking for positive things, well, they are hard to find. Cowboys' Mike McCarthy responds to stinging criticisms voiced by several unnamed Dallas players - John Breech, CBSSports.comSounds like the head coach was a bit miffed about the unattributed criticisms. McCarthy was actually asked about the criticisms this week and he clearly wasn't thrilled with the fact that a few of his players decided to anonymously complain through the media. "The anonymous is something we don't want to recognize," McCarthy said, via USA Today. "But it's important to...

Grading the Cowboys first game without Dak Prescott, a bad loss to the Cardinals

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ This one wasn’t pretty for the Cowboys, ladies and gentlemen. Well, we got to see what this Dallas Cowboys offense would look like without starting quarterback Dak Prescott leading them, needless to say, it wasn’t pretty. Not all of the blame should be laid at the feet of back up Andy Dalton either, it was also the play of the patchwork offensive line and running backs that sank this team. The Cowboys struggles up front against the Arizona Cardinals minus their best pass rusher led to this rout. With that said, let’s grade the Cowboys game this...

Five plays that shaped the Cowboys’ dismantling by the Cardinals

Five plays that shaped the Cowboys’ dismantling by the Cardinals

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Ezekiel Elliott keeps hurting this team, Well that was rough. This was always a game that was teetering between a competitive contest for the Cowboys and a total blowout in the first game without Dak Prescott. It ended up being the worst case scenario, as Zack Martin’s injury made an already-injury-plagued offensive line even worse. As if playing behind four backup linemen wasn’t enough for Dalton’s first start in Dallas, Ezekiel Elliott made sure to put the nail in the coffin with two early fumbles, which forced Dalton to push things and take risks he...

Ten thoughts on the Cowboys embarrassing 38-10 loss to the Cardinals on Monday Night

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports There was a lot of things going on in this game, and they were all bad. The Dallas Cowboys made their one and only showing on Monday Night Football in embarrassing fashion. In their first game without Dak Prescott starting at quarterback, the offense struggled mightily. They never did really show up, but their defense was open for business to the tune of 38 points. There were some bad stuff, more bad stuff, and then finally a never-ending smorgasbord of even more bad stuff. There’s a lot to dissect in this one, but here are ten thoughts on this embarrassing...

Dallas Cowboys vs. Arizona Cardinals inactives: Leighton Vander Esch is active

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Here’s who the Cowboys will be without. The Dallas Cowboys are playing in the final game of Week 6 and they will be hosting the Arizona Cardinals under the bright lights of Monday Night Football. Things feel strange for the Cowboys as they are playing a game with a quarterback other than Dak Prescott for the first time in almost five years. Andy Dalton will start under center and hopefully be enough to lead this team to their third win of the season. Overall, the Cowboys have sustained many injuries so far this year as Prescott joined the likes of Gerald...

Cowboys vs. Cardinals: Writer predictions for Game 1 of the Andy Dalton Era

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Can the Cowboys survive Dak Prescott’s injury? The Cowboys are leading the NFC East with a 2-3 record, which is a bigger indictment on the other three teams in the division than an endorsement of the Cowboys. Not only has America’s Team played some really uneven football so far, but they lost their leader for the year when Dak Prescott hurt his ankle last week. Now Andy Dalton takes command of the offense as the Cowboys host Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. When Arizona has the ball Contain Kyler Kyler Murray won the NFL’s Offensive of the Rookie Year...

Andy Dalton has a number of contract incentives that he can reach with the Cowboys

Photo by Abbie Parr/ 2020 could be a prosperous year for Andy Dalton. When the Dallas Cowboys signed Andy Dalton over the offseason it was widely assumed that he would never see the field as the team’s starting quarterback. Football can be cruel sometimes, and as you know, Dak Prescott suffered a devastating ankle injury last week which has led us to this point. It’s Red Rifle time. There are 11 games left for the Cowboys this season (unless they win the NFC East which they are actually favored to do) which means there is a lot of time for Andy Dalton to work. He is taking over a...

Dallas was heading into a potential get-right matchup against the winless New York Giants, attempting to get their season back on track. Less than a week later, the Cowboys got the win they so desperately needed, but at a huge cost. Of course, this cost was losing their star quarterback Dak Prescott for the season, dealing a huge blow to their chances of making a deep playoff run.

Dak Prescott had a bevvy of weapons in Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb, Cedrick Wilson, and Blake Jarwin, as well as having both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in the running game, and it was all operating behind one of the most talented offensive lines in the league. Five games in and that’s all changed. The offensive line has suffered injuries, with both Tyron Smith and La’el Collins out for the...
