Jerry Jones had a rough week last week, and after a possibly crucial victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, he’s ready to talk about it a little bit.
It’s not hard to see why last week wasn’t his best.
Last Sunday night, his Dallas Cowboys lost to the Falcons in Atlanta, in a frustrating, mistake-laden performance of the sort that many had come to expect out of these Cowboys. Then, speculation that the Cowboys could target Sean Payton began, adding another layer of distraction to the distraction sandwich that so often is the Dallas Cowboys.
Then, his old head coach Jimmy Johnson blasted the current Cowboys, saying that Jerry and Co. had cultivated a “country club” atmosphere at Valley Ranch--one that is not conducive to winning football games.
That’s a lot of stuff for an owner to deal with, even an owner so willing to discuss “the issues” of his team so publicly as Jerry. So, despite some of the same old problems cropping up in the Philly game (Dallas was penalized 13 times), the victory over the Eagles came as a breath of fresh air for the Cowboys head honcho.
"This has been a hard week for everybody, a real hard week," Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. "I think everybody kept their head down and kept going and we have something to feel good about. Maybe we’ve gotten out of here on the road and can do some good when we get back home."
