Let's get this one out of the way, because it's undoubtedly a sore subject at this point. The Dallas Cowboys and their fans may be happy for Noah Brown thriving with another team, but every big game Amari Cooper has for the Cleveland Browns is like another drop of acid in everyone's eyeballs.

It's not that Cowboys fans are upset at Amari Cooper's success, but every big game he has as a member of the Browns has Cowboys fans singing Justin Bieber...

That should be me, that should be me...

In all seriousness, trading away Amari Cooper and not figuring out a way to prioritize bringing him back is one of the biggest mistakes the Cowboys have made in this present window. That trade significantly depleted the WR position where the Cowboys have been scraping and clawing to find solutions, especially since Michael Gallup hasn't performed up to the contract he received.

Even with QB issues in Cleveland, Cooper is up over 700 yards in nine games this season, averaging over 17 yards per reception with a pair of touchdowns. The Cowboys desperately miss his presence in the passing game and he's been an absolute steal for Cleveland.
