    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones laments 'glaring difference' between Dak Prescott, Andy Dalton

    This team no longer has Dak Prescott.

    “That was the pretty glaring difference out there last night,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday morning on Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan, referencing his team's 38-10 loss. “But it doesn’t have to stay that way.”

    Asked Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy about Andy Dalton's first game.

    McCarthy: "Not to be rude, I have no assessments for you tonight. ... Most importantly, I didn’t coach very well. … I’m not getting it done right now."

    Imagine if they didn’t have division games to generate some wins. Seeing their records in the other 10 games by the end of the year might be interesting

    I wonder if Dalton's backup, my man Ben DiNucci from JMU, will see some playing time. Some of the folks in Dallas saw some parallels to Tony Romo in DiNucci.

    Dalton is what Dalton always has been.

    Dalton is a Game Manager QB that absolutely requires a decent offensive line. Without that, you might as well start someone else. Because Andy is a lot of things, but he is not mobile, and his does not improvise well under pressure at all.

    But yeah, give him some protection and a solid supporting cast and he will win some games for you.
    He said he was curious about the crowd but didn’t want to stay and talk. “I’m heading out,” he said. “This is a super-spreader event.”

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    NFL Network's Jane Slater reports Cowboys players have begun forcefully criticizing the coaching staff after originally agreeing to "keep things internal." “Totally unprepared," were the words of one player. "They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.” Another added “they just aren’t good at their jobs." Other than that, we hope things are going well. New coach Mike McCarthy sold an offseason narrative of coming into the 21st century and learning analytics, but none of the analytics in the world can make up for having Mike Nolan as your defensive coordinator. The Cowboys have allowed an astonishing 218 points through their first six games, which is tied for the fourth most in NFL history. Dak Prescott's season-ending ankle injury gives McCarthy an alibi, but this could turn into a one-and-done situation. It wouldn't be the first time with a retread. Of course, all of this ignores that the 2-4 Cowboys still sit atop the horrid NFC East.

But then they go through periods where it seems like nothing is working. I think "horrible" is way too harsh, as it seems like he's very creative, and I like his aggressiveness. I do agree that he struggles as a play caller sometimes though, but I think that will get smoothed out as he gains experience. He's only 32, so I think it's reasonable to expect some growing pains.

    Even if he is in fact horrible, he's still significantly better than whatever they're doing on defense. What a mess. I can't remember a division as terrible as the NFC East. I wonder what the line would be for all those teams against the Bengals. We'll find out in a couple weeks, but I'd imagine the Bengals will be favored against Washington and the Giants. It's probably a push with the Cowboys, and then the Eagles would probably be slightly favored as they've picked it up slightly, although the Bengals should have beaten them.
    Hung around Bill Walton too much. "Horrible" and extreme views are too much a part of my makeup.

    Jets swapping 6th and 7th Rd picks again, except this time it's a 6th in 2022, so that's equivalent to a 7th in 2021.

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    49ers acquired OLB Jordan Willis and a 2021 seventh-round pick from the Jets in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick. The former third-rounder of the Bengals in 2017, Willis has three career sacks and has played 11% of the Jets' defensive snaps this season. He's unlikely to become a significant difference-maker for the Niners.

    Re: The 2020 NFL Season

    From Rotoworld with Rotoworld comments:

    Ryan Fitzpatrick said he was "shocked" by the Dolphins' decision to bench him and name Tua Tagovailoa the starter for Week 8 against the Rams. Fitzpatrick was caught off guard when he was called into coach Brian Flores' office to learn the news and admitted it "broke his heart" to find out he's not the starter anymore. "I basically got fired yesterday and my day today consisted of Zoom meetings listening to the guy who fired me, and being in a spaced out room listening to the guy who replaced me," Fitzpatrick said. He felt the Dolphins were his team right now, and he was playing well, leading the Dolphins to a 3-3 record headed into their bye week. Clearly, if this was Miami's plan all along, Fitzpatrick had no idea and was blindsided by it. There's been some chatter that the Dolphins could potentially listen to trade offers for Fitzpatrick ahead of the November 3 deadline. The NFL is always more fun when Fitzpatrick is playing.

    The Cowboys should be on the phone like 2 days ago to see about bringing him in if thats the best Dalton has to offer.

    Re: The 2020 NFL Season

    Vikings are bailing out the flooded Viking ship: they dumped Nkagoue to the Ravens for a #3 2021 pick and a #4 or #5 2021 pick. He is from Baltimore, so he gets to go home. We just got 8” of snow, and the team is rebuilding the defense, so he must be happy.
    He can definitely generate pressure from the edge, and he has a knack for slapping the ball out of the QBs hand a bunch of times each year.
