Week 11 Tweetcap: The Cowboys ineptitude on offense continues

New, comments

The Cowboys get bludgeoned 37-9 by the Eagles as offense fails to do anything.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

For the second week in a row the Cowboys offense has been absolutely abysmal. For the first time in his career, Dak Prescott throws three interceptions and looks absolutely terrible doing so.

Now, one worse-than-bad game doesn’t make him a terrible quarterback for all the Tony Romo folks still hanging on to false hope. It is clear though that Ezekiel Elliott is by far the MVP of this offense. Without him, it doesn’t work in the least bit.

Nobody feels sorry for teams without their better players but this Cowboys offense leaves you with no confidence going forward. The real problem for the Cowboys is that nobody scares you on this offense. Without Elliott, none of these skill players add much of anything. When it rains, it pours.

The worst part of this entire game was the fact that the Cowboys’ defense kept them in it a lot longer than expected but the offense did absolutely nothing.

At some point, you knew that the Cowboys defense was going to break and that’s what happened in the second-half. The defense got off the field multiple times and Dallas wasn’t able to do anything. Six of the Eagles seven first half drives ended with zero points, the Cowboys got nine points out of it.

So, the Cowboys sit at 5-5, still somehow in the wildcard playoff hunt but have to turn around and play another game in just a few days. By the way, the Chargers may be wildly inconsistent but they just hung 50+ points on the Bills and they have this:

Everything the Cowboys have showed us over the past few weeks points to the fact that they are non-threatening on offense. It’s not impossible for them to make the turnaround as they have a rather weak schedule coming up but their lack of execution is more than troubling for their playoff hopes. Plus, they are extremely dependent on the players they don’t have right now.

That’s all she wrote for this week’s Tweetcap, hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and that the Cowboys give you something to smile about.
