Offense couldn’t get much worse right now for the Dallas Cowboys… While they are the 6th-best rushing offense in NFL, their total offense ranks 26th, why?
The 30th passing offense in the NFL. This is the real problem.
While the Cowboys had a 4th and 1 in overtime of Sunday Night football, nearly at mid-field, coach Jason Garrett elected to punt. This led to the Houston Texans hitting the game winning field goal. What did this tell us?
Even Garrett has little-to-no trust in his offense that the moment.
You could blame the coach, the offensive coordinator, or the quarterback… your choice. Yet, the running offense is fine, so many Cowboy’s fans are feeling one big problem is in Jerry’s World, the QB.
The Cowboys defense is allowing only 19.2 ppg through the first five weeks, but the offense can only muster up 16.6 ppg, which leaves them with a 2-3 record in the NFC East. While not out of the race due to the division, the Cowboys had much higher expectations after posting a Cowboys franchise best record 13-3 just two years ago in 2016. This was with Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott.
One fan had this solution:
Start a petition to get Jerry Jones to bring back Tony Romo and bench Dak Prescott.
While this is obviously unlikely to do anything, it continues the regret that some Cowboys fans feel when it comes to letting go of Cowboys Legend Tony Romo in favor of Prescott.
Tony Romo is loved by Cowboys fans, and it continues to show even 2 years later.
This poses the big question: Who would you rather have today?
Dak Prescott or Tony Romo?
