Suffice it to say that Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones wasn’t thrilled with the team’s performance against the Cleveland Browns at home on Sunday. Dallas needed overtime to squeak by the now 2-8 Browns, hardly an encouraging performance for a Cowboys team that faces a quick turnaround before facing RG3 and the young Redskins on Thanksgiving.
“I didn’t have any fun yesterday,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3-FM The Fan on Monday, via the Dallas Morning News. “It was, I think, one of the first games that we’ve ever had that we didn’t give a really big fist pump when we won it. It was more like hands on the knees and, ‘Thank God.’”
Jones was particularly miffed by the sloppiness of Dallas’ effort, which saw nine team penalties, seven sacks of Tony Romo and a good deal of confusion on both sides of the ball.
“Well, that’s just unacceptable,” Jones said. “I know our staff’s not happy about that. That’s not the type of football or the type of product we want to put on the field when the game’s on the line and we’re trying to run two guys out there, and obviously, probably not in place and certainly not ready to get in a football position to make a play.
“That’s not the type of product we want to put on the field. Those are the types of things that cost you from getting in the playoffs. We’ve got to do better than that.”
