Skip Bayless does not seem to believe that the person in charge of the Dallas Cowboys’ Twitter account was acting on their own when they openly criticized Dak Prescott.
The quarterback has gotten slammed for his mistakes during the loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. And, while he did have a bad game, there aren’t many who agree with the team throwing their player under the bus in such a manner.
“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 tweet in question reads.
It’s one of several critical posts pertaining to the Cowboys’ loss. This one was attached to an article from Cowboys.com titled “Dak on Loss to 49ers: ‘Unacceptable, 100% On Me’” from staff writer Patrick Walker.
According to Skip, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is known for letting writers have their way when it comes to criticizing the team, at least mildly. The FS1 analyst said he was allowed the same freedom when he worked for the Cowboys back in the day and would not be surprised if Jones gave the Twitter manager permission to fire at Dak.

“This website does have the reputation for being, if I dare say, pretty objective after a Cowboy loss,” Skip said during Undisputed this week. “Jerry gives them carte blanche to at least be gently, mildly critical, and has for years.
“He’s of the school of ‘Any publicity is good publicity,’ because they just love publicity. It’s pretty shocking as the NFL norm goes when it comes to these websites that they would go this far.”
Bayless and his co-host Shannon Sharpe also theorized that Jones is very aware of his mortality and is getting frustrated over the possibility of not seeing the Cowboys win another Super Bowl in his lifetime.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
