NFL analyst Shannon Sharpe has a thing against Dallas Cowboys, but this time he isn’t celebrating them being popped out of the playoffs.
Following their divisional-round playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys threw some shade at their star quarterback Dak Prescott with a scathing tweet with a link to an article.
The Cowboys’ Twitter page tweeted:
“Dak Prescott gave away the ball twice in the narrow loss to the 49ers, in a matchup the Cowboys had a chance to win if they didn’t again generate self-inflicted wounds.”
The following day, Sharpe took to Undisputed and called for the employee who posted the tweet be fired.
“This is a team official account, now at first I thought they were hacked, I said somebody hacked this account, and then I look and it’s still up, so clearly it hasn’t been hacked. This came from a team official that runs their social media account and they thought it was ok to throw Dak Prescott under the bus.”
“Teams are very conscious to not throw their superstars under the bus, especially from their team account. I can assure you if the Chiefs lose, there won’t be a picture of Patrick Mahomes. But to throw him [Prescott] under the bus, to this level, to this magnitude, that employee should be fired if he hasn’t been already.”
This was not a good look for a team that will have Prescott under center next season because of the negative cap space they would endure by trying to release him.
In the loss to the 49ers, Prescott completed 23 out of 37 passes for 203 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. He easily could’ve had three interceptions if not for a dropped pass late in the fourth quarter.
This was the second straight year in which the Cowboys lost to the 49ers in a comical way. This time, Ezekiel Elliott lined up as the center with no offensive lineman as he got pushed easily to the ground in a play that never saw the Cowboys get off a single lateral.
