The Cowboys offensive line should be embarrassed because not one of them stood up and defended Andy Dalton after he was knocked out by Washington’s Jon Bostic.
“Andy Dalton, getting absolutely wrecked in a hit by Jon Bostic, for the Washington Football Team that was so unbelievably dirty, that Bostic should have a substantial fine, maybe even face some more discipline than just a fine from the league. But nobody on the Dallas Cowboys offensive line stood up and defended their quarterback at all. Such that Mike McCarthy was saying after the game, and I quote, ‘We speak all the time about playing for one another, protecting one another. It definitely was not the response, you would expect.’
“That is a situation, where if you are an offensive lineman, your job is to protect the quarterback. When the opposing team does that to your quarterback, and none of you stand up to defend him, that speaks volumes about the status of your team right now. And I also think it speaks incredible volumes about how little this team respects Mike McCarthy or the coaching staff. The Cowboys are now 2-5. And even in the awful NFC East, they pretty much face a must-win game on the road against the Eagles. But I think it’s unlikely that Andy Dalton will be able to play in that game, meaning we are talking about just an unmitigated disaster for the Cowboys. Because right after that, they play against the undefeated Steelers. And the Cowboys are squarely staring in the face, a 2-7 start that would effectively eliminate them from playoff contention, even in the woeful, very bad, no good NFC East. And the fact that nobody stood up for Andy Dalton is a horrible sign for what’s going on in the NFC East right now.”
