FRISSCO, Texas — In the middle of a four-game losing streak and at the pace that Jerry Jones set the second worst record (4-12 in 2015), there are some positive things for the Dallas cowboys (2-7). You might have to look cross-eyed to see them.
For the game on the 11th, let’s go. Cowboy Week Sunday (16:25 EST, Fox) at the Minnesota Vikings for a closer look:
If the season goes in the wrong direction, you immediately look for young players who can give hope for the future.
Cowboys Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb, No. 17 overall, and Corner Trevon Diggs, No. 51 overall, give this heap. The lamb needs three laps (he has 44) to break the team’s catch record for the rookie season, held by Bob Hayes (46). The lamb, which has 595 receiving yards, also has time to beat Hayes’ brand for yards (1003) as a newcomer to the season. He does it with four different starting quarterbacks.
If quarterback Duck Prescott had stayed healthy, the lamb might have been able to participate in the NFL Rookie of the Year debate, but for now, that’s the most important thing for Dallas.

Diggs, whose season is threatened by a broken leg that could push him to the curb for four to six weeks, is also the player the Cowboys can count on. His two interceptors lead to the Cowboys. He showed willingness to be physically active and coach Mike McCarthy praised his ball skills. Diggs’ technique needs work, which played a role in some of the big pieces he left behind, but cowboys can feel safe knowing they have at least one starter in high school 2021.
Finally, Neville Gallimore, who has three knives, pushes the stick into the corner and gives the cowboys some strength in defense. In the ninth. In the second round, he played his best game against the Pittsburgh Steelmakers. Tyler Biadash, the fourth round of Cowboy, started four straight games in the middle and wanted to keep his court until he injured his hamstring warming up for the game in Pittsburgh.
Four entries in one drawing? It’s what every team would want.
Martin is always the best
Zack Martin could be the last person on the line of fire. Travis Frederick has stopped. La’el Collins hasn’t played this season due to hip surgery. Tyrone Smith, left tackle, played two games before the neck injury ended his season.

Martin, who has decided to play in the first round of the 2014 Cowboys, has missed a game due to a concussion, but it is his usual dominant game, especially in Philadelphia against Fletcher Cox. Also in the game of 3. In the second round in Seattle he managed to swing the right catch. The cowboys believe that Smith and Collins will return to normal in 2021; Biadasz looks like an appetizer, and Martin is still Martin. While the issue of Smith’s recurring injuries is a concern and his successor may need to be addressed in the April NFL draft, the line may not be as far away as some people think.
You see the effect that Zack Martin, instead of not being here, said McCarthy. He’s bringing him into your attack line. He controls this group. He’s undoubtedly a great leader. I was very impressed. His level of play is very consistent and he makes the players around him better. … You don’t get into the National Football League like a regular player. For me they’re all good players, and big players make the people around them better, and Zack Martin is definitely the man for us.
Special teams help
The division barely counts to 11 at the beginning of the season. Sometimes the cowboys had 12 players on the field, the rest of the time – 10. And do you remember two failed feints in one game?
But in the past few weeks, the cowboy team has had special teams playing on the sidelines.
Let’s start with Greg Zurlein’s kicker. He made 17 out of 20 attempts, all three missed at 50 meters or more. It’s a bit embarrassing when his nickname is Greg-foot, but he has three games with three field goals and both victories came in his last seconds. Zuerlein also had some ingenious experiments on board, including a watermelon punch that led to the victory of 2. The Atlanta Falcons in a week.

The coverage was better. The return match has calmed down after some uncertainty from Tony Pollard at the beginning of the match. The return of C.J. Goodwin’s 73-yard bet against the Steelers on Cedric Wilson’s pitch was perfect. The 64 meters long start of Rico Dowdle against Pittsburgh was also clearly visible.
John Fassel, coordinator of the Cowboy Task Force, is resourceful. Sometimes maybe too much, but the group has improved.
By practicing more situation football and getting to know myself, I know the strengths and weaknesses of our players, and I think what we do best is what I’ve learned and what we’re trying to focus on, Fassel said. There was definitely a process and a lot of practice that we needed and still need. They were so locked in meetings. They do a lot of work in training. … I’m optimistic and I think we’ll feel even better.
Maximize your possibilities
The Cowboys in the inner circle of Dalton Schultz won the first nine games with 35 traps at 383 meters and two touchdowns. In the first two seasons he made 13 catches for 122 yards.

When Blake Jarvin collapsed due to a knee injury in the first week of the season, Schultz stepped in and became a producer. According to Executive Vice President Stephen Jones, you have a good feeling about the future.
Aldon Smith’s defensive final has not been played since 2015 due to problems on the field. Despite the fact that he bags the cowboys, his products have slipped a bit in recent weeks. He may still be adapting to the hardships of the season, but he has a knee injury. The level of Randy Gregory’s defensive game continues to rise. If he could avoid punishment, everything would be better, but he’s under constant pressure.
Pollard shows a peak in the current game behind Ezekiel Elliot. Will he ever move Elliot? No, but he’s bringing the juice he needs after Prescott’s injury.
Terence Steele, who hasn’t produced a good tackle yet, started every game with a Collins outing. Is he starting because he deserves the job or because the cowboys have no other options? He had to expect some bad moments from an unqualified player, but maybe in the future he can take a swing behind Smith and Collins.
