Receiver Cole Beasley has learned from experience. Stay off social media after Dallas Cowboys games, especially losses.

He has had to learn the hard way after some bad experiences early in his career.

And he while still defends his teammates every now and then his advice to avoid what is said on social media because it’s a bunch of poop.

It’s something he found out yet again after the Cowboys’ 16-8 loss to the Carolina Panthers in the season opener last Sunday that featured a disappointing effort on offense.

“There are a lot of things people see and don’t understand,” Beasley said. “There is a lot of opinions out there about what we shouldn’t or shouldn’t do or how bad the group is. We can’t read and can’t care about it…One of the biggest reason you can’t listen to any of it…It’s all full of poop. We have to focus on what we do and get better.”

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said he liked the fight of his offense and feels good about fixing the issues that hurt them in the season opener.

Beasley said everyone in the Cowboys locker room remains together and on the same page. He said there is no loss of confidence on offense despite it being the offense scoring 12 points or fewer in six of the last nine games dating back to last season.

Plays were there to be made. It’s just a matter of execution.

“There is no loss in confidence in all,” Beasley said. “Watching the tape there were plays out there to be made. It was maybe one guy on any given play didn’t do their job that was breaking everything down making it look worse than it was. We still had plenty of opportunities to move the rock. We will clean those things up and get better.”

Beasley said the Cowboys are firmly behind quarterback Dak Prescott and no one is hitting the panic button.

“He’s good,” Beasley of Prescott’s mindset. “We watched film together on the plane ride home. We saw plays out there that could have been made. We are still very positive. We know what we have in here. No one is hitting the panic button. We have to go back to work and improve.”
