Bregman explains the main reason he decided to continue to make an impact on his teammates.
It’s very important for me because I want to be a leader, he says. It’s important for my friends from Latin America. Hopefully one day in the future I can be like Carlos Correa, who is bilingual.
Garoppolo’s new supporting cast probably won’t be strong enough to make him a QB1 in any remaining week this season, and it’ll keep him off the QB2 radar when he faces tougher defenses, as he will in Week 12 (Seattle Seahawks) and Week 16 (Jacksonville Jaguars). It’s also a negative that he’s jumping from one team that hasn’t yet had its bye to another — the 49ers’ bye arrives in Week 11 — and considering we’ve got nine weeks remaining in the regular season with 18 of the 32 teams with byes in the rear-view, that’s a noticeable, mathematical hit.
As a team, Dallas notched four sacks, and had many more near-sacks go unrecorded. What was once considered a massive liability for the Cowboys turned into a strength in the win. On the other side of the ball, coach Jay Gruden announced after the game defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis fractured his hand. Ioannidis isn’t a household name, but has played a big part in Washington’s front four. His absence was evident in how effectively Dallas ran the ball, especially in the second half, and his loss is larger than one would expect.
Yes, it was raining, but that’s no excuse for the continued absence of Washington’s receiving corps. For yet another week, Terrelle Pryor was nowhere to be found, catching his lone target out of bounds. Josh Doctson dropped a big pass (though he did catch a touchdown with 4:35 left in the game after a gift of a pass interference penalty).
