    Cowboys Stadium is many things. It’s big. It’s shiny. It’s expensive.

    One thing Cowboys Stadium is not, though, is a place that opponents hate to play. Dallas is just 8-8 in regular season games at JerryWorld following a season that saw just two home wins, both well after Wade Phillips was given his walking papers and both against unimpressive competition (they beat the Lions in week 11 and the Redskins in week 15).

    Stephen Jones wants to change all that, to make Cowboys Stadium as dreadful of a place for the opposing team as it is delightful for the Dallasite with a pocket full of money and an interest in professional football.

    “Obviously, we've got a lot of pride in Cowboys Stadium," Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. "Our players have a lot of pride in it; what we need to do now is turn this place into a stadium where it becomes almost impossible to beat us here, and we've got to get that home field and protect that home turf this year.”
