Upon review of Week 7 game film, the Dallas Cowboys are feeling encouraged with Jonathan Cooper at left guard.
Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones liked how Cooper performed in the team’s 40-10 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
“He played as good a game Sunday as anybody did and the best game since he’s been a Cowboy,” Jones said, per the team’s official website.
Offensive lineman Chaz Green started the first three games of the season before being replaced by Cooper. With the way things are trending it doesn’t look like Cooper is going to relinquish the the starting spot. He’s settled in at left guard and it showed on against the 49ers.
“I honestly believe it’s them feeling more comfortable with me,” Cooper said. “They’re some great players, so I feel alright. So I just think it’s them getting a better feel for me, understanding that I’m going to give my best out there and knowing that we’re on the same page and we’re able to click on all cylinders without them having to worry about me.”
Granted, the winless 49ers were an inferior team. San Francisco is battling with the Cleveland Browns for the worst team in the NFL. Bigger test are looming for the Cowboys. The team’s O-line is noticeably not as dominant this season and it’s been affecting the their entire offseason. Cooper’s continued improvement along with right tackle La’el Collins will be vital for the Cowboys going forward.
