The Dallas Cowboys are feeling the vitriol and disappointment of fans enough, but their own team’s Twitter page added to the pack on Monday.
Normally, posts on the team’s social media pages are positive, but a tweet from the Cowboys is going viral because it was so forceful after the loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
«Dak Prescott gave away the ball twice in a narrow loss to the 49ers, in a matchup the Cowboys had a chance to win if they didn’t inflict self-inflicted injuries again,» the caption read.

The tweet linked to an article on the team’s website that also had that exact phrase at the top.
Many responded for comment, including NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein.
DAK PRESCOTT SUMMASES COWBOYS LOSS TO 49ERS, TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR EXPENSIVE LOSSES
NBA superstar Donovan Mitchell of the Cleveland Cavaliers also made a comment.
«The team account posting this is weak bro!» he wrote.
MLB starter Marcus Stroman responded to Mitchell by saying simply, «Done.»
But this wasn’t the only tweet from the team that got straight to the point for the Cowboys. A tweet based on Mike McCarthy, which came after his post-game comments, read like this:
«Mike McCarthy stepped onto the podium after the loss to the 49ers to give his thoughts on a season that had a chance to be special, but ended up being anything but.»
Although it seems harsh coming from the team account, what the tweets and articles were saying was not false: The Cowboys felt they had the group to finally break their streak of not reaching the NFC Championship Game since 1995. But they didn’t. Bring that back to the 49ers, who won last season in Dallas on a final play that baffled many when Prescott rushed for yards despite not having enough time on the clock.
COWBOYS FANS FIGHT AS THEY WATCH THE TEAM LOSE TO THE 49ERS IN PLAYOFF GAME
The Cowboys had two chances late in the game Sunday to at least tie it with a touchdown and an extra point made (they’ve been having trouble with kicker Brett Maher recently, so that wasn’t certain). But Dallas went three-and-out on their first down, and on the final play of the game, a freak play led to KaVontae Turpin being squashed by Jimmy Ward on a short pass to end the game.
Prescott went 23 of 37 in the game for 206 yards with a touchdown to Dalton Schultz and two interceptions. The Cowboys also lost Tony Pollard to an ankle injury in this game, forcing Ezekiel Elliott into a workhorse role. However, he only had 26 yards on 10 carries, making the running game obsolete for him to work with offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.
In the end, quarterback Brock Purdy and the 49ers did enough to get past the Cowboys, who are heading into another offseason with questions about what they can do to finally get that championship feeling back.

But that will come later. At this time, the sting of defeat is still in the air, and even the team’s social media account is feeling it.
