Read the room, Tony.
NBC Sports analyst and former Colts coach Tony Dungy was under fire from social media for his dull reaction to Dak Prescott’s horrifying compound fracture to Dak Prescott’s ankle he suffered on Sunday.
“As difficult as it is for Dak Prescott, it could be a blessing in disguise for the Cowboys,” Dungy said before the Sunday Night Football game. “They have a good veteran quarterback who can make some plays that might cause them to go back to their old formula, lean on the running game, lean on Ezekiel Elliott, help the defense by controlling the ball. You still have wide catchers and Andy Dalton will play with those catchers. “.
As the Twitter crowd grew, Dungy attempted to clarify his comments.
“The blessing in disguise was a poor choice of words on my part,” wrote Dungy on Twitter. “Not a blessing for Dak. What I meant was that the season is not over for the Cowboys. Andy Dalton is very capable and bringing attention back to Elliott could help the defense. But I feel very bad for Dak.”
