The Dallas Cowboys’ internal media splashed out on Sunday’s 12-19 playoff loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Your articles don’t sugarcoat the cowboy’s performances. These articles are intended to educate readers, not simply applaud the Cowboys at every turn. The social media team is sending out the stories along with a comment to encourage people to read. Those tweets, straight to the point and sometimes harsh.
The tweet that has gone the most viral is the one about Dak Prescott. It mentions Prescott’s two interceptions and also that the Cowboys “had chances of winning if they didn’t inflict self-inflicted wounds again.”
That wasn’t the only tweet from the account that didn’t flatter the team’s performance. There was one about Trevon Diggs’ aborted interception and another about how special this Cowboys 2022 season could have been.but instead was anything but.”

Most of the teams’ social media accounts went out of their way to pat their teams on the back after the season ended after losing in a one-off postseason tournament. The invoices are sent a broken heart emoji via a picture of the final result of their Sunday loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The remainder of their content for the day was a press conference video and a short video of Josh Allen high-fiving fans on the way out of the stadium. Jerry Jones’ team, however – that’s not how they work.
Everything Dallas does is different
The Cowboys treat their website and social media as their own news organization about the team. That’s why when the Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the 2019 playoffs, a tweet was sent out in the trenches about games won and lost The cowboys lost the game there. After last year’s playoff loss to the 49ers: “Penalties and unforced error doom the #DallasCowboys.”
It’s an interesting way to tackle the hours after your players suffer a crushing defeat that has led to their end of the season, when independent sportswriters wait to analyze, piece by piece, everything they got wrong. But maybe that’s just another reason Jerry’s franchise is the most valuable in the world. His internal media may not spend time with this image of him as a student at North Little Rock High School when black students were prevented from incorporating it, but they will tell it as if it were about the product in the field .
This is just another of many ways the cowboys act differently than the rest of the sport. The result is a lot of money, but again no hardware.
