Jerry Jones won’t comment on Cowboys future WR Amari Cooper – Wilton Jackson, Sports Illustrated
Amari Cooper’s future in Dallas looks a bit murky.
Nearly a week after the Cowboys became the first home team to lose in the playoff round to the 49ers, owner Jerry Jones stayed in the headlines discussing offseason issues within the franchise.
One area of focus in the Cowboys’ offseason is catcher Amari Cooper’s contract.
“I have no comment on Cooper’s contract,” Jones said of the four-time Pro Bowler on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday. “I thought we were playing early when we shook things up, I thought Cooper had a big part in that.
And, I’m not ordinary. But, how he fits in and should take half the pitch with him when he goes to run the pitch. Not half, that’s an exaggeration, of course. But any part of that defense should honor Cooper.
In the Cowboys’ 23-17 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, Cooper finished with six catches for 64 yards and a touchdown. In the 2021 season, he had 68 catches for 865 yards and eight touchdowns.
After a disappointing finish, the Cowboys offensive line needs a restart – Todd Archer, ESPN
Fixing the offensive line should be an offseason priority for the Cowboys.
In every game, they lead the Dallas Cowboys down the field with Tyron Smith always going first, provided the left tackle is sound. Right next to him is La’el Collins, provided he is healthy and available to play. Next up are Zack Martin, Connor Williams and Tyler Biadasz.
It happened every week, so it can’t be a coincidence.
For years, the Cowboys have been led by their offensive line. For a few years they were called the best offensive line in football. Then one of the best. With perennial Pro Bowlers in Smith and Martin, who is considered by many to be the best guard in football, it’s easy to see what there is to like.
Still, as the Cowboys look to regroup after a disappointing end to 2021 with a wildcard loss to the San Francisco 49ers, it’s time to reinvest in position not because they should, but because they must.
In the moments after the loss to the Niners, Collins and Martin were asked about offensive line play.
Does the line meet their standard?
“I wouldn’t say that,” Collins said. “I think we have a lot of work to do. We have certainly not reached the potential of this room, the capacity that we have.
Does the line need to be improved?
“It’s no secret that we have to improve,” Martin said. “We got slapped in the mouth early, and we thank our guys for coming back and fighting and making it a game. We have to improve.
Could Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott have handled RB’s knee injury better? – Matthew Lenix, Cowboys Wire
Whether it was the Cowboys or Zeke, someone mishandled the situation.
The 2021 season was the fourth 1,000-yard campaign for Elliott in six seasons. However, after two 100-yard performances and averaging 90.4 yards per game with five rushing touchdowns in the first five weeks, Elliott has only recorded 45.8 yards per game over the past 12 games, and the reason is that he played with a Partially torn PCL for most of the season which was revealed after the Cowboys lost in the playoffs to the San Francisco 49ers in the wildcard round.
Elliott’s dedication and commitment to his teammates is admirable and he should be respected for it. Plus, it’s understandable why he’d want to stay in the field and protect his place on the depth chart with a guy like Tony Pollard behind him who showed his worth by gaining 719 yards on 5.5 yards per carry in 2021.
In this case, however, the Cowboys dropped the ball, failing to shield the player from himself.
Jones says he won’t fix glare issue that plagued 49ers-Cowboys – Alex Didion, NBC Sports
Sun glare at AT&T Stadium seems like a non-issue for Jerry Jones.
Jerry Jones said the Dallas Cowboys have no plans to fix the glare problem that plagued his team in their loss to the 49ers.
Will Jerry Jones put up blinds in the Cowboys stadium?
“I wish all I had to worry about was a bullet hitting the screen or a little bit of sunlight getting in there,” he said. @1053lefan. “No. That’s about 10,000 on my list of things to worry about. And no, we’re not going to do anything.” pic.twitter.com/Mhb55DWgWh

The problem erupted when Cowboys wideout Cedrick Wilson appeared to dodge and lose sight of a critical third pass in last week’s game against the 49ers.
Pat Leonard’s Notes on the NFL: Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Still Seems to Consider Change – Pat Leonard, New York Daily News
Change, hopefully for the better, should be coming for the Cowboys in the offseason.
Mike McCarthy may not feel safe as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys after hearing owner Jerry Jones’ radio interview on Friday.
“I think we did a really good job of getting to the playoffs,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan in the Dallas-Fort Worth market. “Still, I can’t go back to what we did in the playoffs.”
The Cowboys’ playoff loss to the 49ers was five days away, but Jones looked like he came out of the losing locker room.
“Bottom line is yes, I’m very, very frustrated and upset,” Jones said. “We have used some very talented players over the past few years.
“The Cowboys owner made it clear ‘I haven’t completed my overall rating’ and said it will likely take ‘several weeks’ before he makes ‘statements about ratings or actions relating to those ratings. “.
But he spoke about his coaching staff’s assessment in a worrying way.
