The Cowboys beat the Redskins 47-16 on Sunday to finish the season 8-8 for the fourth time this decade. That final score would’ve been more impressive if they were headed to the playoffs, but that’s not what happened after the Eagles defeated the Giants to clinch the NFC East and eliminated the Cowboys at the same time.
Dez Bryant watched the two crucial NFC East battles on Sunday afternoon like the rest of us and the ex-Cowboys WR was critical of his former home and praised the rival Eagles.
“It’s frustrating to watch how the play calling is different…” Bryant tweeted. “the eagles play tons of man coverage….cowboys should have clinched last week… Crazy you got to wait until (expletive) on the line… I hate to say this but eagles understood this 5 weeks ago….stop wasting great talent”
He also made his case to be head coach of the team.
The former All-Pro wide receiver hasn’t played in the NFL since the 2017 season, as he was released by the team during the 2018 off-season. He eventually joined the Saints, but would never see the field after he tore his Achilles and was placed on injured reserve.
The Cowboys are one of the most-talented teams in the NFL, but they could never put it together for consecutive games to show it off properly.
