The 2020 version of the Dallas Cowboys began with a promising outlook on this most unprecedented year not just in sports, but life as a whole. They had what they deemed to be their franchise quarterback, their all-world running back and a wide receiver trio that was as talented as any in the National Football League. Oh yeah, they also had a new, Super Bowl-winning head coach.

But then…

Things began to unravel quickly for #CowboysNation on and off the field. It was not so much an opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams. It was not even the fact this Cowboys defense had given up the most points after three games in the franchise’s storied history. It was not EVEN so much of them losing to a team that does not have a nickname.

No, the lassoing of “America’s Team” began in a Week Five contest between them and their NFC East brother, the New York Giants. It was the day they lost their QB, Dakota Rayne Prescott, to a season-ending, compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. Although the Cowboys won the game, 37-34, this was the beginning of a major exhibition of incompetence from a professional football team.

The Cowboys would go on to get boat raced by the Arizona Cardinals in Week Six and beaten up by the Washington Football Team in Week Seven. One of the most startling events ever seen in sports was when backup QB Andy Dalton slid to avoid a hit and was belted by Washington LB Jon Bostic. The event itself is not what was mind-boggling. It was that the hit prompted NO ONE to come to his aid or defense against Bostic.

And so the spiraling continues.

Rumblings from the Star in Frisco, the Cowboys’ training center have players (anonymous identities) voice their displeasure of head coach Mike McCarthy, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. Players have said they are unprepared and are not being coached or taught anything to help develop and elevate their games to the next level. It has become so bad in Dallas that owner/GM Jerry Jones was heard on the Cowboys flagship station, 105.3 The Fan, telling a show host to “shut up and let me answer the question.”

With an upcoming schedule that features the Cowboys’ next five games against the Eagles, Steelers, Vikings, Washington Football Team and the Ravens, Dallas could be facing a complete unraveling of the 2020 NFL season.

This is the era of the Lassoed Cowboys.
