The Dallas Cowboys endured a painful end to the 2021 season at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers in the wild-card round of the Playoffs. Since then, Dallas has yet to make a large impact on the offseason, something that Barry Church shared his thoughts on.
The Dallas Cowboys’ 2021 season was defined by a very productive offense backed up by a turnover-hungry defense that in the end, played very well in the regular season. Dallas finished the season as the #1 ranked offense in scoring and total yards gained. Much of that came from the impressive play by quarterback Dak Prescott and receiver Ceedee Lamb.
When the playoffs rolled around, however, a different picture was painted. The 49ers stifling defense held the Cowboys’ electric offense for most of the game. Once the Cowboys finally woke up after some late-game errors by the Niners’ offense, there wasn’t enough time to turn the game around.
With this painful loss behind them, it seemed like the Dallas Cowboys would target free agency to bolster their roster and ensure they can be true contenders in 2022. However, this hasn’t properly happened yet and Barry Church weighed in on that recently.
Barry Church expresses his concern over the Dallas Cowboys’ offseason moves
Appearing on a segment of ‘105.3 The Fan’, Barry Church was quoted saying “I’m not gonna lie, I’m kinda confused. Some of the moves they’re making, to me at least, don’t really add up. I know a lot of people are saying Amari Cooper wasn’t really that #1 but, I think he drew a lot of attention away and let a lot of other guys get open. So, I don’t really understand the move with Amari Cooper.”
Church further added “Overall I’m confused. You have the ‘addition by distraction’ but a lot of those guys that they let go weren’t distractions on the field, they weren’t bringing the team down in any type of sense like that so, I’m really confused but hopefully they have a plan going into this season.”
The Dallas Cowboys certainly do need to have a solid plan as they have many crucial pieces in place to make a Super Bowl run. Luckily, there is still time to make things happen and they likely will. For now, we can only wait and see how things pan out in Dallas.
