Ezekiel Elliott Had Brutally Honest Reaction To Andy Dalton Hit

A member of the Dallas Cowboys has finally addressed the troubling comments made by head coach Mike McCarthy.


After Sunday’s 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team, the Dallas Cowboys head coach addressed Andy Dalton’s injury with troubling team comments


Jonathan Bostic, the 29-year old linebacker for Washington Football Team, threw himself into Dalton as the quarterback slid before reaching the first down marker. When watching the hit on replay, it was clearly illegal. Dalton gave himself up with a slide after scrambling when the pocket collapsed. Yet, Bostic still chose to throw himself into Dalton’s head.


When talking to reporters after the game,  McCarthy was not just upset about the hit, but also how his team didn’t protect Dalton in the process according to Jon Machota of The Athletic.


“Mike McCarthy on no Cowboys players getting in Jon Bostic’s face after his dirty hit on Andy Dalton: “We speak all the time about playing for one another, protecting one another. It definitely was not the response you would expect.”


In an interview, via Clutch Points, Zeke admitted that the chemistry issues and the hit were both troubling issues.


“Just how sh**ty this year has been. How bad this year’s been.”


The Cowboys have been called out by the media for their lack of interest in Dalton’s injury. It appears that the locker room didn’t care that Dalton was injured. For Sunday Night Football analyst, Rodney Harrison, he had an issue with that on the pregame show.


“Get knocked out, lay on the ground and no one comes to his defense. I just, I don’t understand it. I look at the culture of this team, and they’re soft. I mean, you see all those linemen – nobody says anything to Bostic. How could you allow your quarterback to get his head knocked off and no one comes to his defense? But it speaks to the culture. It speaks to the selfishness of the Cowboys. And the Cowboys flat out quit today.”

Chemistry doesn’t happen overnight, but at this point, it doesn’t look like it’s going to develop at all.
