    Dallas Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones looks on during a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on August 21, 2009 in Arlington.

    Dallas Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan won’t speak to the media until the team’s coaching staff is finalized, but according to owner and general manager, the new head of the Dallas defense has been positive in evaluating the current cornerbacks on the roster.

    As for the owner himself, his position on the matter has been made clear.

    Jones told reporters on Monday that he was confident in the team’s cornerbacks--specifically Terence Newman, Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick--and that, in his estimation, they didn’t play as bad in 2010 as many think. This statement has since drawn a good deal of criticism on message boards throughout the interweb, but on Tuesday, Jones did not back down from his seemingly precarious stance when asked again.

    "I stand by that regardless of what other people thought," Jones said, per ESPN Dallas.

    "I think they’ve shown in the past, you take each one of them, that they can play at a high level. It's not unrealistic to think they can't play at a high level again because their skill level is good enough to do that."
