Like most fans, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones is happy that his team was won its last four games. But also like Cowboys’ fans, Jones wishes his team would win these games by a more decisive margin than, say, one or two or three points.
The Cowboys last two wins have come in this nail-biting fashion--they beat the Washington Redskins by three, in overtime a week ago. On Thanksgiving Day, as you might remember, the team beat the now-3-and-8 Dolphins by one, 20-19.
"I like plans where we get out there and get 30-point wins," Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I'm going to talk to him (Jason Garrett) about that.
"We need bigger wins."
We agree with Jerry, here. It’d be nice for Dallas to win a game or two that doesn’t come down to the final minute, sure. But if the playoffs began today, Dallas would be the fourth seed out of the NFC. And that, friends, is a good thing, regardless of how many gray hairs come as a result of the team’s penchant for dramatic finishes.
