Cowboys Notes: Beasley, Garrett, Maher

Former Cowboys receiver Cole Beasley had a bumpy tenure with the team. Beasley was a fan favorite in Dallas from 2012-2018, but became frustrated with the team when his role did not expand to the degree he thought it should. After signing with the Bills this offseason, Beasley got to exert his revenge in Buffalo’s 26-15 victory in Dallas on Thursday.

In the postgame celebration of Buffalo’s Thanksgiving day victory, Beasley told reporters that he felt “disrespected” in Dallas and felt that they disrespected him again in his return, according to Angel Franco of The Dallas Morning News. Beasley caught six passes for 110 receiving yards and a touchdown against his former team.

Here’s some more Cowboys notes:

  • Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones ripped his coaching staff after last week’s loss to the Patriots. After an even more disappointing loss to Buffalo on Thursday, all eyes were on the maverick owner to see if he would once again criticize his coaching staff. While Jones was not full of praise, he tried to calm the flames around the team by saying he will not make any coaching moves during the season, according to Ian Rapoport of This does not remove the pressure on head coach Jason Garrett to make a deep playoff run, but should make it easier to focus on the upcoming schedule.
  • Cowboys placekicker Brett Maher is in the midst of a massive sophomore slump. After an impressive rookie season that included 6 makes on 7 attempts from at least 50 yards, the Nebraska product has made just 67.9% of his field goal attempts in 2019. While special teams has been a huge problem for the Cowboys, they will not be making a change at kicker, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic. Maher has yet to miss an extra point on the season and remains 14 of 16 inside 40 yards, but will surely hope to improve his accuracy from deeper range during the rest of the season.

    Cobb is a definite upgrade from Beas
    We definitely need coaching and kicker changes
    And some actual production from cooper in road games. He falls off the map when he’s not at home

      It’s hard to believe that a team in first Place has yet to beat a team with a winning record.

      Also need the owner to have a nice glass of shut da F up:) until he hires a gm to relieve cowboys of his meddling they will not advance forward, just IMO

    What is the big deal? In their last two games the Cowboys have been defeated by 2 superior teams…

    Man the Cowboys are a dumpster fire and Jerry won’t admit it. His praise of Garrett is mind blowing. A coaching change now would ignite this team but Jerry would rather take care of his ginger friend.

  4. Jimmy Johnson’s Ghost

    Don’t you have to make the playoffs to make a “playoff run”?

  5. Jones there’s no crying in football! Man up swallow your pride and get rid of the so called head coach! What a shame crying on national television!!

      If I had to spend as much on medication as Jerry does, I’d probably cry too.

    I remember 2008 when Garrett was considered the next big coaching mind. Baltimore went for him and he chose to stay in Dallas.

    Ravens fans and others dropped their jaws when they chose the special team coordinator from Philly. How’s John Harbaugh worked out for you guys as the consolation prize in the Garrett Sweepstakes of 08’?

  7. Jones deserves all this, goes back to Jimmy getting out while the fire was small.
