Nothing depicts the Cowboys' season better than this:
Yup, that's Cowboys defensive coordinator Mike Nolan rubbing Tabasco in his eye. At this point, Nolan has to be counting down the days until he gets fired. His defense ranks 27th overall and dead last in points per game, allowing a whopping 34.7 PPG.
With everything that's happened in Dallas this season, a lot of the blame has gone to head coach Mike McCarthy. Deservedly so, considering he lives in his own world and has no sense of what players think of him in the locker room. Nolan has flown under the radar while everyone pelts McCarthy with tomatoes.
I do think McCarthy is the main culprit for the mess that's gone down in Dallas. But it's impossible to win games when your defense is giving up 34 points and over 400 yards of total offense each game. To make matters worse for Nolan, his players previously came out talking about how they can't give maximum effort on every play.
I understand what he was saying, but let's not say that after getting blown out by the Cleveland Browns.
To be honest, I don't know how anyone can take this guy seriously. He tried to bring back coaches wearing suits on the sidelines. What kind of crazy person really thought this would catch on?
If the Cowboys are lucky, Mike Nolan won't be able to coach after going blind from Tabasco. At this point, fans are praying for any type of change to turn this ship around. A friendly reminder that the Cowboys are only a half-game back in the dumpster fire they call the NFC East.
