Why the Cowboys Desperately Needed Amari Cooper

Colin Cowherd: “If you ever get fired, and five different companies are immediately interested in hiring you, just know YOU weren’t the problem as an employee, they just didn’t get you.

Jerry Jones on Amari Cooper: “We made a decision that that allocation should be better spent. We made every effort to do as well as we can do with the trade. We have to make sure that any of those players are pulling as much weight as you can. No. 2, you’ve got to be judicious how you add a top-10 paid player.”

Five teams were interesting in acquiring Amari Cooper, yet if you put Ezekiel Elliott on the market with that contract you would not get a call. In fact, if you cut his contract in half you wouldn't get five suitors, you probably get one. Don’t tell me Amari Cooper isn’t valuable, because trading someone in the NFL is essentially firing them. Dak being paid as an ‘A’ quarterback as a ‘B+’ quarterback and Zeke’s contract – THOSE are the issue, don’t blame Amari Cooper. We have numbers, Jerry, on Dak with Amari and Dak without Amari. I have DATA. Dak ain’t the same dude. Dak’s passer rating plummets without Amari. Dak’s completion percentage plummets. Points per game is almost 9 points a game less.
Dak with Cooper: 28-16, 28.7 PPG, 67.9%, 297.4 YPG, 102.9 QB Rating
Dak without Cooper: 3-6, 20.2 PPG, 63.5%, 223.1 YPG, 86.1 QB Rating
I am here to defend Amari Cooper, I’m not here to bang on Dak. I don’t think this is a good move. I think the Dallas Cowboys fired the wrong guy.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks the Cowboys will regret trading Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns, as Colin points out glaring data points that show the Cowboys offense was much better with Cooper on the field.
