Jalen Ramsey has never shied away from the mic.
Dating back to his time with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the top-paid cornerback in the league ponied up again for the Los Angeles Rams.
Ramsey was in the middle of a controversial offensive pass interference call with Cowboys wideout Michael Gallup. After the game, head coach Mike McCarthy called the play an “obvious” mistake, while fans were riled up on Twitter.
Ramsey had a different tone.
When speaking to the media after the game, Ramsey said the offensive pass interference was “as clear as day.” He later said that if the referee didn’t call it, “I would have been highly upset.”
That penalty forced a 3rd-and-10 into a 3rd-and-20 with only 21 seconds left to play. Dak Prescott would throw two incompletions later as the Rams closed out the 20-17 season-opening win.
The Cowboys have gone through a massive overhaul in 2020. Mike McCarthy ended a 10-year tenure of Jason Garrett. Dak Prescott was placed on the franchise tag to “prove himself.” Huge contracts have been given to Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper, so it’s time to prove they are superstars.
A newly constructed defense, and the hopefully healthy unit, looks to rebound from their 20s rank in 2019. The talent is there on paper but getting everything put together has been a struggle over the last couple of seasons.
This was not the start anyone was hoping for and the Cowboys will look to turn it around next week against the Falcons.
