The Dallas Cowboys are the biggest attraction in the NFL and everyone always has an opinion about them. That was no different last week as Hall of Fame quarterback, Terry Bradshaw, co-host of Fox NFL Sunday, has some strong words for where the Cowboys are as a team before taking on the Cincinnati Bengals.
“Total chaos there in Dallas,” said Bradshaw. “I don’t expect them to even see them come close to winning this game today.”
Well, the Cowboys proved Bradshaw wrong and won a hard-fought battle against the defending AFC champions, bringing their record to 1-1 on the season. Now, Bradshaw is singing a different tune.
As the Cowboys get set to take on the New York Giants on Monday, backup quarterback, Cooper Rush, will look to improve to 3-0 as a starter. Bradshaw seems to think he can after his comment earlier on Sunday.
“Cooper Rush is in the NFL,” Bradshaw said. “If he’s in the NFL, he can play. Last week, Cooper Rush did just that. He played well. They get their great receiver (Michael) Gallup back this week. The Cowboys are loaded. They don’t run the ball well, but (with defensive coordinator) Dan Quinn, that defense is awesome.”
Talk about changing your mind quickly.
The Cowboys are certainly capable of winning against the undefeated Giants. Not just because of what Bradshaw said, but the Cowboys’ defense has been lights out in the first two games as they have only allowed 36 points (two touchdowns, seven field goals) and opposing teams are converting just 35.48% of their third down attempts.
Depending on what happens in the game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Commanders on Sunday, the Cowboys could be playing for a share of the NFC East lead against the Giants, which would be a welcomed site with Dak Prescott out.
