A look at Cowboys’ worrying situation ahead of next game
The Cowboys are currently in a concerning state as a team and therefore San Francisco are probably one of the most dangerous opponents to come up against.
In my opinion, the lights have been flickering, indicating power is present, but the lights are not all the way turned on, all of the time. We needed this team to have found its ‘ah-ha’ moment long before this past weekend because November and the thanksgiving period is just around the corner.
The offense also has to find its rhythm and most significantly, the defense, in all honesty, has to make major improvements before more damage is done to the season.
Last night, we all witnessed a game between two teams who reminded us of what professional football should look like. Sound tackling, appropriate pres-nap recognition on both sides of the ball, a sound game-plan, and sharp quality execution are all basic requirements at this level of the game.
Indeed, if the Cowboys are to hit and miss again, they could lose the upcoming clash with San Francisco.
With all that said though, most fans will be excited rather than dreading to see what actually happens this weekend. How the team performs in this game will say a lot about what the Cowboys’ ambitions are for the rest of the campaign.
Many would have never guessed that it would be Zeke Elliott looking more like a sophomore slump at this point while the offense heads in whichever direction Dak Prescott chooses.
The young quarterback has done a good job of not making any crucial mistakes and his competitiveness is phenomenal. Not all of his critics have been proven wrong but one thing for sure is that his attitude is almost beyond praise worthy.
Unfortunately, it seems as though despite his tender age, the team desperately requires him to grow into a superstar as soon as possible. He has to be the greatest threat on the field and the most feared weapon in a Cowboys uniform on a consistent basis if they are going to unshackle the run game.
Right at this moment, most of us are very skeptical about the team running against eight-man fronts with regularity like they have done in the not so distant past.
Prescott has to strike fear in the D more often even though he did that with his deep strikes against Green Bay Packers. We need to see him go for the throat more often like that.http://www.bluestartoday.com/2017/12/look-cowboys-worrying-situation-ahead-next-game/Posts
