Count Herm Edwards among those who don’t like Cowboys Dak Prescott’s Twitter.
After the 49ers beat the Cowboys 19-12 on Sunday to advance to the NFC Championship Game, the Cowboys’ Twitter account threw Prescott under the bus.
“Dak Prescott gave the ball away twice in the narrow loss to the 49ers, in a game the Cowboys had a chance to win if they didn’t hurt themselves again,” the tag was sent.
Edwards appeared on ESPN’s “This Just In” on Monday and said the post rubbed him the wrong way.
“I can’t say what I want to say on the air because I’m a good Catholic person,” Edwards said as covered by Mediaite. “I’m not going to go there with him, but I will say this; too bad . It’s actually when you think about someone in the organization. You are entitled to your opinion, but this thing is called a group.
Edwards, 68, joined ESPN in recent months after coaching Arizona State since 2018. He explored this as a problem with the Cowboys’ culture.
“When you choose an individual to say that you want to blame him, for me personally, I don’t believe that,” Edwards said. “I just don’t do it, I’m not built like that. That’s a little bit of a problem with the Dallas Cowboys. It’s always somebody else’s … I’m going to put the blame on this one guy because we’re not like a football team. They played a football game yesterday that I thought they played very well.
Prescott signed a four-year, $160 million contract with the Cowboys through the 2021 season. Despite their strong interest, the team can’t move on him this offseason, as it includes nearly $90 million in cap money in 2023.
