5 Dallas Cowboys whose stock is crashing after Packers loss
Following the Dallas Cowboys’ devastating loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, here are five players whose stock we believe is crashing.
The Dallas Cowboys suffered their second-straight loss of the regular season, this time at the hands of quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the 4-1 Green Bay Packers. All the Super Bowl talk surrounding America’s Team is now a thing of the past as this is a 3-2 squad searching for answers.
Despite their recent back-to-back defeats, the Cowboys still sit atop the NFC East standings. But there is certainly a sense that the walls are closing in. And there are five players whose stock we believe is plummeting in the eyes of fans. And those players are …
#1. Brett Maher, K
After his rookie season struggles, many questioned whether that Cowboys might bring in some competition for kicker Brett Maher, who was somehow able to unseat longtime stalwart Dan Bailey in 2018.
Yet the Cowboys chose not to bring in any serious competition for Maher this offseason, despite the fact the former CFL kicker struggled to connect on 80.6 percent of his field-goal attempts last season.
Through five games of the 2019 regular season, Maher had missed three of his seven field-goal attempts, including two against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Those attempts being from 54-yards and 33-yards. His final miss essentially slammed the door on any possible Cowboys’ comeback with 1:44 left in the game.
It’s clear to everyone but the Cowboys themselves that they have a major issue at the kicker position. Perhaps now Dallas will admit it has a problem and start bringing in free agents to compete with Maher.
