FRISCO, Texas — When the Dallas Cowboys follow Wednesday, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan is perhaps on the damage report. The rationale? Tabasco.
Nolan needed to step away from his weekly convention name with reporters on Monday as a result of he obtained some sizzling sauce in his eye in the course of answering a query in regards to the effectiveness of pass-rusher DeMarcus Lawrence.
“He is been lively each week so far as, I believe, disrupting the quarterback. He is escaped a number of instances to try this,” Nolan mentioned. “Clearly, the frustration for him as effectively is — look, it is when he misses them. Whoop, excuse me. I’ve obtained one thing in my eye. Simply had some Tabasco on my finger, and it went in my eye. That wasn’t good. Ugh. Horrible, geez. I am sorry.”
It has been that type of season for Nolan.
The Cowboys are on tempo to permit 555 factors this season. They’ve given up 243 factors, which is greater than they’ve given up in 11 seasons in franchise historical past, not counting the strike season in 1982, and equal to what they allowed in 1992.
Nolan was capable of clear out his eye and return to the information convention.
“My eye feels lots higher,” he mentioned, “but it surely was burning.”
