Former Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin went berserk after Dallas’ win over the New York Giants, putting them at 2-1 so far.
Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin had quite the reaction after Dallas’ win over the New York Giants.
Irvin, who appeared as a guest on ESPN’s First Take, had an over-the-top comical reaction, giving a “chef’s kiss” and calling the win “finger-lickin’ good.”
He also went on to say that he was “hurting” by saying the Philadelphia Eagles have a chance, but now the Cowboys may have a chance. The Eagles are undoubtedly doing well, but it’s still early in the season. It’s hard to tell which teams will be able to carry their momentum over the entire season and which ones haven’t reached their potential yet.
Dallas, however, may actually have a chance when looking at their track record so far.

It’s hard to tell which teams will be impactful and which ones are just having fluke luck. As with anything good, there’s always room to improve. Every team is bound to have holes in the roster and areas that could be better, but it’s a matter of who plays the best together.
The Cowboys are in a decent spot. They took a rough 19-3 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, but they bounced back, notably in Week 2, with a 20-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals aren’t appearing to be as good this season as they were last season with a 1-2 record, tying with the Pittsburgh Steelers for worst in the division. However, they’re still coming off a Super Bowl season with some of their key players, so they probably still have good potential.
Dallas is relying on some new starters, particularly their starting quarterback, Cooper Rush. Rush has never been a starter in his career but he’s played well when he has stepped in. Overall this season, he’s had a completion percentage of 62.7, 514 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. He seems fairly reliable so far.
Dak Prescott is out, so Rush is stepping up in a position he typically wouldn’t and he’s not disappointing at all.
They do have some good returning starters too, most notably Ezekiel Elliott and CeeDee Lamb. There is potential on the team, and though it’s too early to tell how well their season will play out, they do seem to be headed in the right direction with some solid starters.
