Done trying to win. Done trying to compete. Done with Mike McCarthy and Co.
While trailing by as much as 22-3 to the Washington Football Team, which eventually turned to a 25-3 loss to drop to 2-5 on the season, Spears tweeted “they’ve quit.” It was short, sweet, and it could honestly be right on point.
This is not the first time that we are hearing chatter about this. Last week, the Cowboys were blown out 38-10 on Monday Night Football to the Arizona Cardinals.
After the game, 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.”
When the Cowboys trailed 22-3 at halftime, Cowherd took a shot at defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and McCarthy.
“Jerry Jones — you made a huge mistake and it happens to everyone — time to blow out the coaching staff and start over,” Cowherd tweeted.
At this point, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan might be the first to go. Despite having some big names on defense in Everson Griffen, DeMarcus Lawrence, Jaylon Smith, and Leighton Vander Esch, the Cowboys own the worst scoring defense in the NFL. At 36 points per game, the Cowboys had allowed 30 or more points in five straight games.
Some sort of change needs to happen. What will that change be?
