After being thrashed 38-10 by the Arizona Cardinals at home on Monday, they suffered a sad 25-3 loss to Washington at the hands of a team that posted only their second win in seven outings this season. During this meeting, Dallas did not only lose the game and the face, as the pivot Andy Dalton fell in action in the third quarter.
Victim of a blow to the head of linebacker Jon Bostic, who was also sent off, the redhead had to undergo concussion protocol, while rookie Ben DiNucci completed the clash at the controls of the attack . However, Bostic’s gesture does not seem to have whipped the troops, as much immediately after the coup as afterwards, which greatly displeased McCarthy.
“We talk all the time about the importance of playing for each other and protecting our teammate. Surely that was not the answer to be expected, ”he told The Athletic of the club’s inertia in the face of Dalton’s fate.
And in terms of the general performance of his family, the driver did not appreciate the whole thing.
“We have to be a lot better. And we are running out of time, ”he said.
These comments will not improve the relationship between McCarthy and his men. Following Monday’s failure, they deplored the reaction of some of his players who had notably mentioned to the NFL Network that the Cowboys coaches “are absolutely not prepared and [n’]teach nothing ”.
On the field, the Texan formation will try to regain success by visiting the Philadelphia Eagles, next Sunday, in a duel which should determine the rest of their season. Deprived of their regular quarterback Dak Prescott, the Cowboys (2-5) have the chance to find themselves in the weak Eastern section of the National Association, dominated by the Eagles (2-4-1).
