One of the critiques on the Dallas Cowboys really hit home.
Former Cowboys standout DeMarcus Ware gave his personal take on why the Dallas Cowboys can’t compete. In a Monday morning interview with Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd, the retired defensive standout was blunt with his assessment of his former team.
“I see a lot of the guys having lack of confidence, which is equating to lack of effort on the football field,” Ware said.
Cowherd followed up by asking who he thinks the leader of the Cowboys is. Ware said he doesn’t see any leader on this team. Not Leighton Vander Esch, Zeke, Amari Cooper, or anyone else. Those are strong words.
Ware claimed that he watched the entire 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team and found himself frustrated. This was because when the Cowboys executed in the game, it was only in small fragments. He also mentioned the team had average blocking and numerous missed tackles.
Ware also stated that hiring Mike McCarthy might have been the wrong coaching hire.
“It could’ve been a wrong coaching hire, but I see a lack of effort,” he said.
NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that many players on the roster are slamming the coaching staff. “Totally unprepared,” an anonymous player on the Cowboys told Slater. “They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.”
Slater also reported that players are slamming the coaching staff, stating “the coaches are not good at their jobs.”
Defensive coordinator Mike Nolan currently has a job, but that should also change very soon.
