Dallas Cowboys Robert Okereke Jersey
We have you covered with all of the highlight’s from Thursday’s practice." Dallas Cowboys 2019 Training CampSocial media highlights of Cowboys training camp practice #5New White Terrell Owens Jersey ,25commentsWe have you covered with all of the highlight’s from Thursday’s practice. CDTWith the Hall of Fame Game kicking off, you can finally smell football in the air. It might be a meaningless contest between players competing for roster spots, but it signifies that football season is finally here.The Falcons and Broncos battled it out in Canton, but the Cowboys were getting more work in at practice in Oxnard. The defense ruled the day during practice 5. Without further ado, we give you the highlights from social media of Thursday’s action.Practice five was the third practice in pads, and the defense made life hard for the offense in the California heat. Rookie Michael Jackson out of Miami made a splash play, jumping the pass and returning it for six:The late-round pick is competing for one of the final roster spots in Dallas. Anthony Brown, who was also a day three selection in his draft class, made some plays on Thursday as well:Brown had an impressive season as the slot corner in Kris Richard’s defense in 2018. The Cowboys are hoping that will continue moving forward. Jourdan Lewis, meanwhile, has been lost in the shuffle in the defensive backfield. The smaller Lewis does not fit the prototype Richard defensive back Terrell Owens Jersey 2019 , but he makes plays when his number is called. The former Michigan Wolverines star impressed in practice five:Things were not all bad for the offense, though. Dak Prescott was able to hit second-year receiver Michael Gallup a few times during the practice. Their timing was a little bit off last season, but they are hopeful that things will change this year.Gallup was not the only receiver that Dak connected with on Thursday — undrafted rookie, and popular pet cat, Jon’Vea Johnson, hauls in a deep touchdown here;Fellow UDFA receiver Jalen Guyton makes a play here too, despite some initial impressive coverage from Chris Westry.There is some debate on whether or not Tavon Austin will make the 53-man squad this season, but that has not stopped him from making plays in training camp. Here, he makes the defender look silly:The defense wasn’t done making plays, though. Jaylon Smith breaks up a pass that was intended for Jason Witten.Hopefully this is a good omen:One of the bigger moments of the practice came from Dorance Armstrong. The second-year defensive end beat Tyron Smith one-on-one, which is certainly no easy task to do.UPDATE: After this article was published Dallas Cowboys Joe Jackson Jersey , Calvin Watkins posted the video of Armstrong getting past Smith.More Armstrong:Rookie defensive tackle Trysten Hill had some nice moments during the day as wellBig Grinespite a largely defensive day, Prescott was impressive in 7-on-7, finding multiple receivers:The defense ultimately won the day though, as the defensive backfield impressed in the afternoon heat.Following the practice, Jerry Jones was asked about Ezekiel Elliott’s situation. Jones says he is not worried about it not working itself out:Jerry also clarified his statements regarding not needing a rushing champion to win the Super Bowl:Finally, there is nothing new regarding Dak, Zeke, or Amari’s contract negotiations.Scott Linehan customized the Cowboys offense and it failed, he should be held responsible This past offseason we talked here at BTB how the 2018 Cowboys were totally, completely, and unequivocally all in on offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. At one point last season the Cowboys went through a three-game stretch (at Atlanta Womens Joe Jackson 2019 Jersey , Philadelphia, Los Angeles Chargers) where they failed to break double-digits in each of them. This was the first time in the history of the Dallas Cowboys where the club failed to do this in three consecutive games. The first time ever.The Cowboys front office didn’t lose faith in Linehan, though. Over the offseason they actually responded by giving him a custom-tailored suit. Scott got to choose the sleeve length, color of vest, and even what type of tie he wanted to wear (he chose Kellen Moore as his quarterbacks coach). With things completely how he wanted them, it was fair to expect him to look as sharp as possible and dominate the dance floor.Dallas did anything but dance on offense on Sunday in Carolina, and Scott Linehan’s suit looked tattered and four sizes too big. It was as inept of an offensive performance we’ve seen from the Cowboys since, well, since last season.In Scott Linehan’s defense the Cowboys wide receivers are headlined by Deonte Thompson, Allen Hurns, Tavon Austin Dallas Cowboys Robert Okereke Jersey , and rookie Michael Gallup. To Scott Linehan’s detriment, he literally is part of the brain trust tasked with choosing who those names will be, so he hardly gets a pass.The Cowboys offense looked more than inept in Carolina, it looked more than predictable. There are many Cowboys fans who proclaim they can tell what the Cowboys are doing while watching from home, and while that may be true it still doesn’t tell the story of just how completely broken the Cowboys offense truly is.Consider that the offense was given a life that they certainly didn’t deserve at the end of the game. DeMarcus Lawrence and Co. gave Dak Prescott one last chance down eight points. If they scored they could try the two-point conversion and hopefully send the game to overtime. The offense had a chance to erase the nots of earlier. In this moment, their most critical of the young season, the Cowboys offense completely folded. They were terrible on both first and second down, and on third down Dak Prescott fumbled. Think about that. When the pressure was highest they folded harder and faster than ever. That’s a state of dysfunction that’s quite troubling with 15 games left on the schedule.Scott Linehan got things his way this past offseason, that’s well on the record. Considering how flat his offense fell in Week 1 he should be held responsible, but that was the case last season just as well and here we are. Maybe next week the Cowboys will break double-digits.
