It’s been a rough couple of weeks for veteran NFL coach Mike McCarthy. The former Green Bay Packers boss was appointed as Head Coach to the Dallas Cowboys in the offseason.
Great things were expected of McCarthy and his team of superstars after a productive recruitment drive over the last couple of months. However, it’s safe to say that things have not gone as per plan for Dak Prescott and the Cowboys.
The Jerry Jones-owned franchise suffered their third defeat of the season at the hands of Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Despite boasting of the likes of Prescott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Ezekiel Elliott, and CeeDee Lamb, the Cowboys succumbed to a 38-49 loss at the AT &T Stadium.
A few critics claim that ‘America’s Team’ has already tanked its 2020 NFL campaign. But there’s one man who thinks otherwise.
Marcellus Wiley expects Dallas Cowboys to bounce back in the coming weeks
The sky is not falling in Dallas, according to @MarcellusWiley:

On a recent installment of Speak For Yourself, former NFL man Marcellus Wiley went on a lengthy rant stating why the Cowboys still have everything to play for heading into Week Five of the ongoing NFL season.
“You talk about expectations and you talk about Championships. The Cowboys season is not over because they can still win the first championship that every team signs up to win….The Divisional Championship.
“The Cowboys are still in the hunt. You’re half a game back from a team you get to see twice going forward… This season is not over because of record, this season is not over because of schedule and this season is not over because of leadership,” Wiley said on the show.
Despite losing to the Browns, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was the standout performer in Week Four. He threw for 500+ yards with four passing TDs and just one interception. He completed 41 of his 58 attempted passes against the Browns but could not prevent a second successive loss for the Texas-based franchise.
The Cowboys are scheduled to play the New York Giants at the AT&T Stadium in Week Five. Coach McCarthy will hope to improve on the 1-3 record with a much-needed win this weekend.
