There’s a new theory going around: The Cowboys are dumb. They shocked everyone in Sunday’s 19-12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Jimmy Johnson, ex-Dallas coach, called it a “creatively dumb play design.” All five linemen were lined out wide while Ezekiel Elliott left to play center. Malik Davis stood next to Prescott in the backfield.

Obviously, the outcome was less than desirable for Dallas fans. Prescott completed a pass to KaVontae Turpin and everyone got tackled. The end. This is leaving people to question the intelligence of the Dallas Cowboys. How was the supposed to work? The only explanation that some can give is that the Cowboys are dumb.
There has been a lot of trash talking going on, as we can all expect. Instagram offered some clapback from Micah Parsons.
He called out Samuel in the comment section by saying, “Lol what did you do today fam lol?!” He added, “But congrats on the win! But don’t put me in this weak ass slide.”
Samuel finished the game with four catches for 45 yards and four carries for 11 yards. The 49ers may have won, but that’s really not that impressive. However, some still say that it gives Parsons no grounds to stand on because the 49ers won anyway.
Nick Bosa, defensive end for the 49ers, made his own post. He says, “America’s Team strikes again.”
While the Cowboys didn’t respond to Bosa’s post (because why would they?), fans had some mixed feelings. They are saying things like, “Look I love you! I’m setting you a challenge though! You really haven’t gotten a sack since before the raiders game! We need you to step the **** up this weekend! Please just do your thing this weekend!”
Here’s what to consider: The Cowboys have not been in the NFC Championship since 1995. The 49ers didn’t win because of a spectacular performance, but rather a more spectacular performance than Dallas.
Consequently, the trash talking on social media is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Though, this may light a fire under Dallas. Maybe the new prospects will bring the sandwiches.
Is it just that the Cowboys are dumb, or was that a play that just did not go as planned?
