With one preseason game in the books for the Dallas Cowboys, here is the good, bad and ugly from a 17-9 preseason road loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Dallas Cowboys have been in training camp since late July. Day after day, players have been competing against each other for precious spots on the 2019 roster. Saturday night, they finally got a chance to compete against another team in the NFL.
Even though Dallas took a loss in their first game of 2019, the scoreboard does not matter since it is the preseason. What really matters is that no one gets seriously hurt (accomplished) and that the guys expected to play well, do (check).
With that being said, since the coaching staff has to evaluate who will make the final 53-man roster, we should evaluate how things go during these exhibitions.
After each game, we’ll do a little Clint Eastwood review of how things went. Here, now, is the Good, the Bad and the Ugly from game one of the 2019 preseason.
GOOD – Quarterback play
Starter Dak Prescott was perfect, going 4/4, leading a scoring drive before acquiescing to Cooper Rush. Rush, who has rarely had the advantage of a decent offensive line in previous preseason performances, played well too. Rush’s day looked even better once you see how another quarterback on this roster played later.
