Dallas Cowboys fans are still reeling from the team's Wild Card loss. The dejection likely intensified after the Packers took the vulnerable 49ers to the wire on Saturday night. Regardless, the sheer toxicity has spread like wildfire on social media and even got back to family members of the Cowboys' superstar trio: CeeDee Lamb, Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons.
Let's start with Lamb and Prescott.
The Fox broadcast caught Prescott and Lamb trying to resolve early miscommunication issues against the Packers. That incited panic among fans, and rightfully so, as the Cowboys offense didn't get in-sync until the game was out of reach.
While we'd point to the defense has the main culprit for the Wild Card loss, it wasn't Prescott's best game. Coming off the best regular season of his career, Prescott looked unsure of himself against the Packers. He didn't see the field well and his clock was sped up, resulting in inaccurate passes, forced throws and three and outs.
Prescott's future with the Cowboys has since been a polarizing talking point, and Lamb's mother, Leta Ramirez, joined the discourse and pointed fingers at Prescott on Facebook in screenshots captured by fans. Ramirez went as far as to suggest that she wants Lamb to leave the Cowboys and play for another team.

It's important to note that Ramirez's comments don't necessarily reflect Lamb's viewpoint. It's silly to think Ramirez was speaking for Lamb.
The All-Pro receiver has spoken glowingly of Prescott and the Cowboys organization at every turn since he was drafted in 2020. He's committed to winning a Super Bowl, and even tabled discussing his looming contract extension until after the season.
We'd refrain from overreacting to Ramirez's tirade. Lamb's body language suggested he wasn't pleased with the Cowboys performance, but there's no evidence to suggest he's unhappy with Prescott or the organization.
The same can be said for Prescott, but his brother, Tad, is sick of fans chastising the quarterback on social media.
