Jerry Jones appears to have finally learned his lesson about talking Super Bowls.
Jones has developed a well-deserved reputation for boasting about his team’s prospects over the past few years. Since the last time the team has so much as gone to the playoffs was back in 2009--meaning, of course, that they’ve never seen the playoffs during the Jason Garrett era--these predictions grew frustrating for Dallas fans fast.
Ah, but this is a new Jerry, apparently. Because even with his team sitting alone atop the NFC East and coming off a dominant win over the Rams, Jones is calling for the team to not get ahead of itself. Which seems like an obvious point to make. But coming from Jerry, it’s also pretty refreshing.
“There’s no good from getting carried away and anointing our team a Super Bowl champion, sitting here at 2-1,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday, via the Dallas Morning News. “Not in the NFL today.”
