Don’t ask Jerry Jones why the Dallas Cowboys haven’t been good at Cowboys Stadium, because he doesn’t really know. Jones said as much in his weekly appearance on 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday morning, after being asked about the team’s struggles at their home field.
“I think it’s just happened,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I can’t give you a reason.”
It’s a fairly distant memory now, but the relationship between the Cowboys and Cowboys Stadium got off to a good start in 2009, when the playoffs-bound Cowboys went 6-2 at JerryWorld. Since that season though, they are 8-11 at home, and 1-2 on the season.
That said, Jones had nothing but high praise for the fans that fill his stadium, saying that those present for the Cowboys’ home loss to the Giants a couple weeks ago were about as good of a home crowd as one could expect. Hopefully for Dallas, this is the beginning of a trend.
“Our crowd was outstanding against the Giants,” Jones said. “The league this year has passed rules that allow you every way you can to make our fans aware that noise is great against the opposing team. Anybody that would have any criticism about how our fans were into it needs to have a volume meter for what we did against the Giants.
“We need to continue that against Cleveland and as we get into Washington on Thanksgiving Day.”
