Trolling The Nation During Cowboys @ 49ers: "Why Didn't We Draft Dak Prescott?"

New, comments

Read what other fans had to say as they watched the Cowboys rookie duo dominate Chip Kelly's new team that looks almost exactly like his old team.

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images

As we've done repeatedly in the past, today we're going to look at what fans of other NFL teams had to say while they were watching the Cowboys beat the 49ers on Sunday. All quotes below are taken directly from the open game threads from the SB Nation team sites indicated in front of every comment. Some minor edits have been made to improve the overall legibility of the quotes and to satisfy the site guidelines of our board, but no other changes have been made, no commentary added.

I've frequently received questions asking why there are never any Cowboys fans in these threads. Two reasons: One, if you are a Cowboys fan and watched the game, you probably remember exactly how you felt during the game - no need for a rehash. Two, if you really want to see what other Cowboys fans said, you can always read through the open threads for the game here on BTB.

Pre-game and First Quarter
Eagles Dear Fox, please stop Russell Wilson Worship.

49ers We won the coin toss at least...we seem to be winning those a lot this year.

49ers Another 100-yard day for the opposing RB?
Posted by thehivemind on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:27 PM
49ers I think the most disappointing thing about this season is our run defense being poop.
Posted by californianotter on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:28 PM
Seahawks The 49ers are nominally a divisional opponent so I guess I want .. the Cowboys .. to win? Feels so dirty.
Posted by striatic on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:29 PM
Seahawks Well, at least BTB is a decent blog filled with some pretty good folks. That and… *&@# the Niners!

Posted by thehivemind on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:56 PM
49ers Good news guys, this game will justify a Gabbert extension!
Posted by baykid415 on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:57 PM
49ers So that's one good quarter by Gabs. If we go by history the next three have to be terrible.

Second Quarter
49ers Don't forget, Gabbert is still bad. Nothing like a doodoo team to make you look good.
Posted by TigerNightmare on Oct 2, 2016 | 4:59 PM
49ers Prescott will have one of his worst games..........making Kelly look like he was right for not taking a look at him during draft time.

Chiefs You know, everyone always blamed Romo for losing...But nobody ever blamed their horrible defense which has already given up 14 points to a bad SF team.

49ers I don't understand. Shot of the two announcers in the booth and not one mention of how great Russel Wilson is doing.
Posted by djww on Oct 2, 2016 | 5:31 PM
Eagles Witten is a stud. Great veteran receiver to have.

Texans The Dak Knight is legitimately good. I didn’t think his play in the preseason would carry over into the regular season. It has.
Posted by BrianHoyerHOF on Oct 2, 2016 | 5:46 PM
Redskins Watching the Cowboys. Unfortunately, if looks like they have a quarterback for the future. Didn’t cost them much either. We spend three 1st rounders and 2nd and a 4th, five years ago and we’re still not sure we have our quarterback of the future.
Posted by chambers716 on Oct 2, 2016 | 5:51 PM
49ers So who pulls out the win in the 2nd half., Gabbert or da rook Prescott?
Posted by BigMar on Oct 2, 2016 | 5:59 PM

Third Quarter
49ers I don't think the QB keeper is working anymore.
Posted by Brn2bwild on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:05 PM
49ers There's the Gabbert we know. Straight to the dirt.
Posted by IntelligentAj on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:07 PM
49ers That throw was so bad the defense thought it was a fumble.
Posted by El Shorts on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:07 PM
49ers That was on the receiver though. He was standing past the first down marker. He should know better. Gabbert threw it to where he he should have been. Short of the sticks.
Posted by Germinator on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:08 PM
49ers Every time we try and run the ball bad things happen...I dont get it.

49ers Just running into a wall every time.
Posted by IllWill49 on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:19 PM
49ers The wall is the first down marker and we're not running into it we’re passing short of it and by we I mean Gabbert.

Posted by GMT-5Niner on Oct 2, 2016 | 6:40 PM
49ers Does Chip call the offensive plays? He needs a week off.

49ers Gabbert has a limp noodle for an arm.
