Cole Beasley defends Cowboys WRs as offense struggles
The Dallas Cowboys’ passing offense has not met expectations this season, but one of the team’s standout wide receivers wants to make clear that his unit is doing the best it can.
Dallas has just 435 passing yards through three games, and while he made clear that he wasn’t blaming quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Cole Beasley said Thursday that the wide receivers were getting open and not at fault for the passing game’s struggles.
“We’re just getting open. That’s all we can do,” Beasley said, via Stefan Stevenson of the Star-Telegram. “If you watch the tape, that’s all you’ve got to do. A lot of people aren’t watching the tape. They’re just assuming. That’s fine.”
Others have been more proactive in taking the blame, but the fact is, Dallas’s struggles are a team effort. While the wide receivers are trying not to throw him under the bus, Prescott definitely bears a lot of responsibility, too.
