Cowboys players reportedly say their coaching staff is ‘totally unprepared’
Following a 38-10 blowout loss at home against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football, the Dallas Cowboys (2-4) woke up Tuesday morning sitting atop the NFC East. Even though the Cowboys looked defeated from the start, Dallas can strengthen its lead in the division with a win this Sunday at the Washington Football Team.
With failure in the air, two unnamed Cowboys players aired their frustrations from the vents of a usually quiet organization in that regard. The players lashed out about a coaching staff they deemed as “totally unprepared.”
One player said that the coaches “don’t teach” and “they don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.” Another player added that the Cowboys coaches “just aren’t good at their jobs.”
Defensively, Dallas has allowed the fifth-most points through six games in league history, and the Cowboys are currently tied with the Las Vegas Raiders and Green Bay Packers for the fewest forced turnovers in the National Football League.
On the other hand, the Dallas offense has been equally inept. Along with starting quarterback Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury, Dallas holds the worst turnover margin in the league at -12. Two interceptions from Prescott’s replacement Andy Dalton and two lost fumbles by star running back Ezekiel Elliott forced the negative margin to swell from -8 to -12.
Key injuries to the offensive line and the defensive unit have not helped the Cowboys’ cause. Sean Lee is out for the year with a sports hernia while Dallas suffered numerous injuries to the offensive line, which included losing star left tackle Tyron Smith for the year to a neck injury.
