Jerry Jones referenced what all Cowboys fans were thinking in the aftermath of Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots, mentioning that head coach Jason Garrett went really, really--maybe questionably--conservative after the team took a three point lead in Foxboro. As it’s Dallas, and Jerry Jones, this became something of a story. And since it became something of a story, Jones says he now regrets making any remark about the play calling.
"I think in this particular case after a ballgame, everybody is mad as hell that we weren't successful after playing a fabulous ballgame against a really fine team and so it kind of let a little bit of the emotion, and I would say I probably, if I had that to do over again, wouldn't comment period," Jones said in his weekly appearance on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. "I wouldn't even answer a question about it. I was asked the questions and you can always say no comment. I did, I was real clear that this was the flip of a coin.
“That's what Jason frankly is paid to do, is make those decisions. And there is no one I'd rather have making the decisions regarding our football team right now on the offensive play-calling."
Just in case that wasn’t clear enough, Jones added, "there is absolutely no issue that I have with Jason Garrett's play-calling. I want to get that real clear.”
Which is good. Because as far as last Sunday’s concerned anyway, a lot of people around Dallas do.
