Since Jerry Jones is so diligently playing the part of Mr. Positivity here in 2012, we shouldn’t be surprised that he thought the Cowboys’ 19-14 victory over the now 1-5 Carolina Panthers was a thing of beauty, but here we are. After all, with his team sitting a game under .500 at 2-3, Jones said last week that the team was good enough to compete for a Super Bowl this year.
“Candidly, the win, to get out on that score, on the upper end of that score was beautiful to me,” Jerry said, per the Dallas Morning News. “There wasn’t one thing ugly about it to me.”
Jones realizes that, with (in our humble opinion) an underwhelming win over a completely underwhelming opponent, the Cowboys are just a .500 ballclub; his optimism comes from the belief that Dallas has plenty of room for improvement, which, after watching that performance on Sunday, is one thing we think we can all agree on.
“With this team that I believe can improve and has room for serious improvement, and I say that positively, 3-3 keeps you in the hunt,” Jones said. “All you have to do is look at the rest of the league and you’re in the hunt. If you can be, and really make improvement, then you have a chance to do some things at the end of the year.
“The key thing is, to make a statement like that, you have to believe that you have a team that’s got a skill level and got the ability to improve from what got them from 2-3 or 3-3, this one does in my opinion.”
