 Cowboys is that nothing is for sure. This year’s Cowboys squad will hang 40 points on a good Jaguars defense one week and lose by two scores to the Titans on Monday Night Football. With the world calling for a Philly beat-down , it would be so like the Cowboys to find a way to win this game. The Eagles are heavily favored and by all accounts they should be. The Cowboys travel to hostile Philadelphia with an 0-4 record on the road this season. In fact, their last road win was actually in Philadelphia last December. It was an ugly 6-0 finish in a meaningless game for an Eagles team that had everything sewn up. These Eagles, coming off winning the Super Bowl, can’t wait for this opportunity to kick the Cowboys while they are down. This week, multiple Eagle players expressed their hatred for the Cowboys organization and especially the fan base. Philly is feeling pretty energized and talking very confident about this game, multi-time Pro Bowler, Jason Peters had this to say:It’s understood this is one of the more publicized rivalries in the NFL. Trash talk is expected and hating the Dallas Cowboys is practically a requirement to live within Philadelphia’s city limits. Peters’ lines about “America’s Team”, the Cowboys “not winning”, and people jumping off the bandwagon is what’s amusing here for a couple of reasons. The Cowboys haven’t won a championship in over two decades, their “bandwagon” is still among the largest in all of sports. The ‘America’s Team’ moniker that we see opponents obsess about wasn’t created by the Cowboys. Take that beef up with NFL Films. It was the late John Facenda, you know the famous “Philadelphian Sports Radio legend” and voice of the NFL? For Dallas, they enter this game with the mantra being “must-win”. You know how a Jason Garrett-coached squad loves mantras and a 3-5 record fits this week’s tagline. The Cowboys’ season is already on life support but they’re technically still very much alive thanks to their division rivals. Dallas is two games back of the division leading 5-3 Washington Redskins and one game behind these Eagles. So, the Cowboys aren’t winning many games lately but the Eagles are 4-4, not exactly hanging out with the Saints or Rams atop the NFC.There’s a great line that Bryan Broaddus always says: “This NFL is a strange lady.”It’s so true when you see the Steelers put up 53 points on a 6-2 Carolina Panthers team that has one of the better defenses in the league. That doesn’t mean the Panthers are trash, they just ran into the wrong team on the wrong day. It happens. The NFL has a few teams that dominate each season but for the overwhelming majority of teams, it’s a week-to-week ordeal. The Cowboys have not been consistent in the least bit but we know they can turn it on for one game.There’s another great NFL quote “the more you lose, the closer you are to winning.” Well Cheap Tyron Smith Jersey , the Cowboys have to win a road game at some point. Why not on Sunday against the Eagles with their season on the line? The Cowboys have played their worst football this season away from home. Dallas also has a long list of injuries they are currently dealing with. Starting left guard Connor Williams is out, which means an already struggling line will see some reshuffling. The Cowboys will have their hands full against this Eagles defensive line and know all to well what kind of player Fletcher Cox is. Still, every team has an area of weakness and the Eagles defense has a big one on the back end. It’s up to the Cowboys to exploit their poor secondary. It’s a favorable matchup but it will require a competent passing game, that’s been a trouble spot for Dallas. The Eagles have an offense that struggles to protect their quarterback, Carson Wentz. However, he’s so big and athletic that he can deliver the ball accurately even under pressure or out of the pocket. The Eagles also added longtime Cowboys’ nemesis Golden Tate, who already roasted this Dallas secondary once this season before he was traded by Detroit. The Cowboys defense has been rather good this year but they are coming off their worst performance in last week’s loss. Philly has too many weapons to contend with so Dallas can’t afford another defensive lapse.Philadelphia has done a lot of talking this week and that’s fine if they beat the Cowboys to back it up. If they don’t beat the Cowboys then they’ll be responsible for allowing Dallas back in the divisional race. Look, we’re not saying that it’s going to happen, I was among most of the BTB writers that believe the Eagles will roll this outmatched Cowboys team. At the same time, Jason Garrett is 5-2 against the Eagles in Philadelphia and his teams always find a way to win a game like this. No matter how impossible it may look, every team has a path to victory. Beating the Eagles wouldn’t suddenly fix everything but it will keep the Cowboys’ season alive, even if it’s just for another week. The Dallas Cowboys made a big move to acquire the services of Amari Cooper earlier in the week. After trading away a first-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders, the Cowboys are hoping that Cooper is the missing link to an offense that has struggled to find it’s way. There are many different thoughts about whether this was a good move or not, but most of that won’t be known until we see what Cooper does for this team on the football field. Recently, Cowboys receivers coach Sanjay Lal answered questions about his new offensive weapon and what he offers the team. Here’s what he had to say...“He brings a first-round skill set”The Cowboys had a chance to select a first-round wide receiver talent when Calvin Ridley was still available at pick 19 in April’s draft, but decided that linebacker Leighton Vander Esch was the guy they wanted. Not a bad choice as LVE has looked very impressive in recent weeks.Passing on Ridley meant the Cowboys had a big hole at the wide receiver position. Ridley is a young player with a first-round pedigree. Whether or not that translates into stardom in the NFL remains to be seen, but the skill set is certainly there and he is already producing in his rookie season.And that is what this team is hoping for when they made the deal for Cooper. Lal was very direct about how there is still plenty of work to do with his new receiver.The potential to be better is there Cheap Dak Prescott Jersey , but Cooper brings with him the talent that has already been demonstrated at the NFL level so we can rule out any “bust” factor risk with him. He’s proven. And it’s not like he’s this aging veteran with so only much tread left on the tire. Cooper is young at the age of 24. And even though this is his fourth year in the league, he’s only six months older than Ridley.The Cowboys got an Alabama star receiver who was born in 1994, it’s just not the one fans thought they’d be getting back in April.“We just want guys that are open”The Cowboys front office isn’t trying to be cute here. This isn’t a big dice roll that brings with it a bunch of uncertainty. They’re not trying to take a shortcut or trying to pawn him off as an elite guy to be designated as their new no. 1 receiver. In fact, coach Lal scoffed at the notion that number one receivers are just out there for the taking.Defenses “fear what could happen”We’re all going to be on the edge of our seat waiting for Cooper to catch passes and show that he was worth the investment. While those plays are going to be a sight for sore eyes, what he does without the ball can be equally effective. Coach Lal talks about what having a talent like Cooper can do to the defense. What quarterback doesn’t like easy throws? Dak Prescott definitely does.Cooper wasn’t brought over to be a decoy, but he will change how defenses play the offense. And if defense don’t pay him enough attention, he will burn them. “He’s got great hands”Nobody is perfect and Cooper certainly has his own flaws. One of the things he’s struggled with during his pro career is drops.While Cooper ranks up there in drops, that doesn’t mean it’s going to plagued him his entire career.Coach Lal isn’t worried in the slightest and thinks this will be something Cooper will improve upon under his watch.And how are the “rest of them” exactly? Well, say what you want about the Cowboys receiving group, but they don’t drop a lot of passes. Maybe all that brick carrying is paying off.Amari Cooper is not going to blow up this Cowboys receiving group and turn them into an offensive juggernaut. Sorry Jerry, but the Los Angeles Rams offense, this team is not. Cooper is just going to be another guy out there running routes. He just so happens to be good at it. He was brought to Dallas to create separation to help this Dak Prescott-led offense. He has the raw ability to be a great receiver in this league and we’ve already seen him put it on tape for the better part of his young career. This alone will pose a threat and keep opposing defenses more honest and that will in turn take the pressure off the other guys.Coach Lal is excited about his “new student,” but he has a very realistic perspective on things. Nobody is trying to set the table with these huge expectations. Cooper is a talented player and will make this team better, but there’s still a lot of work to be done to make this offense potent again.
