Obviously, Jerry Jones wasn’t the happiest of campers on Monday night.
His Dallas Cowboys dropped a home game to the rival Washington Redskins--a 2-5 team going in, starting their third third string quarterback, Colt McCoy--and, beyond that, they lost defensive captain Justin Durant for the season with a torn biceps and saw Tony Romo’s immediate future thrown into doubt by a big hit to his surgically repaired back in the third quarter.
Jones was happy, however, with the team’s attitude after the defeat.
“I think that we all knew going into the game that every game and every series impact the psyche of the team,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan this week, via the Dallas Morning News. “I will tell you, after the game, this team had the attitude that you wanted to see. It was mad as all get out, the team in general, everybody. They were just as mad at themselves, mad at each other, just mad, because we felt like we were at home and should’ve ended up with a win.
“We know we’ve got challenges ahead. We said that last week when we were 6-1. If this season is like all of them are, we’re going to have some serious challenges as we move forward, and we’re going to miss having not won that game, there’s no question about it.”
