Three ways to fix the Cowboys in 2023: Acquire another Pro Bowl-caliber receiver, add depth to both lines


Another year, another Dallas Cowboys thud in the playoffs against the San Francisco 49ers following their 19-12 road loss in the NFC divisional round on Sunday. Dallas has once again banged its head up against the divisional round wall as its loss to conclude the 2022 season marked the franchise’s 12th consecutive playoff appearance without reaching the conference championship round, the most consecutive such playoff trips in NFL history. The theme from the postgame comments by head coach Mike McCarthy, owner and general manager Jerry Jones, quarterback Dak Prescott, and linebacker Micah Parsons was unanimous: disappointment.

“I thought defensively we did a really great job for the most part, but would we have liked to have had a couple more stops?” McCarthy said after the loss on Sunday. “Yes. Did we need more third-down conversions on offense? Yes, we could have that too. Red zone production. Extremely disappointed. This has been an incredible journey with this group of men. We came up short tonight to a very good football team.”

“I thought we were well-suited to win this thing,” Jones said Sunday. “Frankly, I wouldn’t say surprised, I would say real disappointed we couldn’t make something happen right down to the last solid series.”

“Disappointed. … For us to only put up the points that we did [12], that’s unacceptable and that starts with me,” Prescott said Sunday. “I’ve got to be better. No other way to sugarcoat it.”

“There’s no feeling like this,” Parsons said. “I hurt for the guys, I hurt for the fans, I hurt for myself and how much I pushed through this year to try and get this title. It’s just not enough. I give my all every week for these guys and they give it back to me, but it just wasn’t enough.”

With that in mind, here are three things the Cowboys could fix or improve upon in order to get over the divisional round hump and even closer to their first Super Bowl title… Source
