Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones apologized to fans following last Sunday’s loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, saying he was “very, very, very sorry” and as of Tuesday, he was still apologizing--while dismissing the notion that an apology means anything at this point.
“You should, and every fan should, be expecting a lot more than I’ve delivered,” Jones said Tuesday in his appearance on 105.3 The Fan. “Not that that means anything either. The apology, I just want everyone to be aware that I know that this team has let our fans down.
“If anything, it would be some type of verbal expression that I’m well aware of it. I care more than you could ever imagine that we’ve had this kind of season and feel bad about it and I will, I really have a feeling that I can say this, but I will do everything that we can do to change it.”
Jones was asked if he ever gets angry with the coaching staff during games.
“Absolutely,” Jones said. “I have every emotion that you can imagine; I must tell you, there are very few times when you have a ‘feel good’ emotion…and that’s probably an extreme statement but you know, no matter what juncture and where you are in a game that in the NFL, the team can come back and win the game so you don’t ever take anything for granted. You certainly cannot this year; it seems uphill every snap. Not downhill; downhill being feeling good, feeling easier.
"Everything seems like it’s going against you. It would be very easy for me say that we’re snake bitten.”
