  Andy Dalton can save Cowboys’ season and reboot his career after missing out on starting jobs last offseason Seven months ago, Andy Dalton was the perennial bridesmaid. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had interest, but only if their Tom Brady pitch fell through. The Indianapolis Colts called, but a deal was back-burnered in favor of Philip Rivers. This is how Dalton became a Dallas Cowboy. He was a near-miss starting option for a handful of other teams, then got released and was left to choose between backup options that included Dallas, the New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.Now a horrible turn of fate has granted him a chance to reclaim a reputation as a starter, while rebooting a career that has never gotten the respect it probably deserves.

In another season, Dallas Cowboys players would have stood up for quarterback Andy Dalton after Washington linebacker Jon Bostic's dirty hit concussed Even if Bostic’s transgression was more tame than ripping off Dalton ’s helmet and hitting him with it, the moment warranted a response from Dallas .

Cowboys coach shocked no one stood up for QB after dirty hit. Dalton was sliding at the end of a 6-yard scramble when Bostic propelled himself headfirst to crash helmets with the quarterback, knocking Dalton ’s head into the Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy called out his players for

On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys didn't react when quarterback Andy Dalton got annihilated by a dirty hit from Washington linebacker Jon Bostic. Rather than stand up and fight for their injured quarterback, the Cowboys seemed to not care. Tiki Barber has a serious problem with that.

Bostic was ejected for leading with his helmet and hitting a defenseless Dalton in the head as the veteran quarterback slid following a short run in the third quarter. The hit knocked Dalton out and he needed help leaving the field. Despite that, the Cowboys didn't fire back or go after Bostic for something that was dirty as hell, intentional and incredibly dangerous.

Here are 4 ways the Cowboys’ offense can still remain potent without Dak Prescott

  Here are 4 ways the Cowboys’ offense can still remain potent without Dak Prescott When Dak Prescott suffered his gruesome ankle injury in the Dallas Cowboys’ victory over the New York Giants on Sunday, you could feel the sadness in the air at AT&T Stadium, even through the television and device screens. Dak is a guy who does just about everything right and is well-liked throughout the league. Will the Cowboys offer him another lucrative long-term deal after this? In the days since the ankle fracture and dislocation, it has become clear that Prescott is still on track to get the money he deserves, either from the Cowboys or from someone else.

The Dallas Cowboys ' 2020 season has gotten worse by the week, and Sunday was no exception with quarterback Andy Dalton -- who was already filling in for Coach Mike McCarthy has already scolded his team for apparently failing to stand up for Dalton after he went down because of an illegal hit.

Here's the key quote:

"They did nothing. There is no fight in this Cowboys team. At all. No fight. No Care. No want to. No nothing. They don't give two 'you-know-whats' about their teammates ... America's Team, that's all I gotta say"

Barber is right. There is no fight in the Cowboys. How did no one go after Bostic? They just let it happen and let him walk away without so much as a protest. It was a horrible look from the Cowboys.

It's no wonder that a team with players that disconnected from each other is 1-6.

Report: Jon Bostic will not be suspended for hit on Andy Dalton .
Dalton had gone into a slide when Bostic launched himself at the Dallas Cowboys quarterback’s head. Dalton laid on the ground motionless for a few seconds before being helped off the field. You can watch the play here.The hit from Bostic was such a dirty play that Washington coach Ron Rivera apologized to Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy over it. If Bostic isn’t suspended, many people will feel he got off easy.McCarthy already has some concerns over the way Cowboys players reacted to the hit on Dalton. The coach may also be bothered by Bostic not facing harsher discipline.
