Aldon Smith of the Dallas Cowboys isn’t happy with how they have been playing. The Cowboys have had a sordid season this year, going only 4-9.

The Cowboys have lost almost every big game they have played, especially since they lost star quarterback Dak Prescott to injury.

Smith had an interview recently and spoke candidly about the Dallas Cowboys. He praised his teammates and suggested that the team can be much better.

“We have a talented group of people. I think it’s really important for everybody to embrace and take pride in what they do. We can be great.

“We’re going to be great, we just need to believe in ourselves. We just need to work a little harder. And it’s a culture.”

However, Smith was candid about the state of the Cowboys this season. While he asserted that he cared about his teammates, he cannot let anyone, including himself, off the hook.

“I’ll explain it as simple as this, we suck right now. But you want to know what, we have the guys on my team, I love these guys. We haven’t made the plays we need to make, but we will. Stick along for the ride. Sh*t happens.” 

Aldon Smith goes off

Aldon Smith mentioned that he isn’t concerned about this team. And that he is excited for the future of the Dallas Cowboys, despite their bad season this year. He believes that the team can rally together in the future and become successful.

“Bumps and bruises happen. But we’re going to get better. We lost a lot of key components that built the team. I’m just so excited about every single person that’s on this team and that we can make it work in the future.”

For Smith, he mentioned that the difficult part of this season wasn’t the grueling physical schedule, but rather, all the off-the-field stuff that the team has been dealing with.

“The most difficult part has been the bullshit that you have to deal with. It’s not the physical. It’s the bullsh*t you have to deal with.

“By the bullsh*t, I mean, everything that comes along with playing the game. … I just want to be blunt, people deal with sh*t.”

It remains to be seen how the Dallas Cowboys perform next season. Their season is over for the most part, and they have failed to make the Playoffs this season. Their main focus this off-season will be retaining Dak Prescott in the free agency.
