Looking at the tape shows something we already know - Amari Cooper is outstanding.
Things didn’t go so well for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday as the Green Bay Packers gave them their second straight loss. There are definitely a lot of things this team needs to clean up if they expect to be playing in January.
But it wasn’t all bad. The Cowboys had 563 yards of offense. Had it not been for three turnovers, this game would’ve looked quite different. There were plenty of good things to enjoy on the offensive side of the ball, but the most impressive was the performance of Amari Cooper.
The Cowboys traded a first-round pick to acquire Cooper mid-season last year, and he’s been making fans love that decision over and over. This year, Cooper already has 32 catches for 512 yards, and five touchdowns. If you prorate those numbers over a 16-game sample size, he’d finish with 102 catches, 1,638 yards and 16 touchdowns. This type of season would definitely earn him All-Pro honors.
