The Cowboys and the Cardinals are the last two teams to play in Week 3 and will be watched by millions of fans.
Sources said the Cowboys leadership council, which includes more than a dozen players, met Sunday night and then the Cowboys met as a team. No general consensus was reached during those meetings as to what they should or should not do. The subject was brought up at the Sunday night team meeting with the coaches.
Sources said players from both teams talked about joining arms together during the national anthem.
A day after saying ‘I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog’ to explain his touchdown celebration where he simulated urinating on the field, Odell Beckham Jr. changed his tune on social media, now suggesting it was related to President Trump’s comments.
With the winless Jets and Saints as the Dolphins’ next two opponents, expect Cutler to stay in his groove. He’ll have good momentum going into key matchups with the Titans (at home) and Falcons (away).
Cutler, because of his arm and comfort level in stretching the field, serves as an upgrade over Tannehill. There’s no reason to think that, with a schedule short on top defenses, Cutler won’t continue to make the most of an unexpected chance. And he might force the Dolphins to make a unexpected tough (and expensive) QB decision in 2018.
Cutler has done plenty to provide punchlines in the past. But when’s fighting back like this and earning the respect of his teammates, he should earn more of ours, too. Either way, Cutler is laughing all the way to Week 3.
