An already disappointing season got even worse for the Dallas Cowboys when they were blown out at home by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night. Perhaps even more troubling than the performance itself was what Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy had to say about it.

The Cowboys played arguably their worst game of the year, which came as a surprise to McCarthy. He told reporters after the 38-10 loss that he felt the team was extremely prepared.

If that showing came after the best week of preparation for Dallas, they may not stand a chance this season. Then again, Ezekiel Elliott put the Cowboys in a tough position by losing two fumbles. No amount of preparation can account for that, though McCarthy stood by the star running back.

Elliott was briefly benched after fumbling on consecutive possessions. McCarthy stood by the star running back but stressed the importance of ball security.

Even after yet another tough loss, the Cowboys somehow remain in first in the NFC East. They could conceivably win the division with six or seven wins, so they need to do their best to remain focused.

Jerry Jones made it clear last week that he has very high hopes for Andy Dalton. Dalton’s first start wasn’t great, as he completed 34-of-55 passes for 266 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. Dallas has a much easier opponent next week in Washington, though a solid week of preparation apparently will not guarantee they avoid a blowout loss.

  Aaron Rodgers blasts anonymous Cowboys players criticizing Mike McCarthy The Cowboys have stumbled out of the gate to the tune of a 2-4 record, and a report in which anonymous players on the team blasted McCarthy and his coaching staff has only made things worse. Reporting by Jane Slater of NFL Network is nothing short of damning for McCarthy. #Cowboys players initially bought into keeping things internal. Now as they sit 2-4 the discontent is leaking out. On the coaching staff “totally unprepared. They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.
