Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said this week that he’s not particularly worried that long-suffering fans of the team will one day give up, and lose interest in the franchise completely. Because even when they’re losing, Jones argues, the entertainment value is still there.
“Not with games like the other day,” Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News. “That’s a show, if you want to look at it that way. That’s not what we’re there to do. We’re there to win the ball game and go forward and win the next ball game. There’s no orchestrating that the other day. I think everyone knows what’s at stake. We spent more money on this ball team than anybody in the NFL did this year."
“We let it all hang out. And we should. We’ve got players that I believe if you stack them up around the league, if you talk to different people around the league, we’ve got quality players on this team that can win. Our coaches, Jason [Garrett], over the last 6-7 years, has had experience that you can’t replicate. All of these things can kick in and make us a winning combination. I’ve been here before,” said Jones.
Jones added that, while the success hasn’t been there of late, he believes he’s put together a group that can compete on the highest level.
“I’d like to have won another Super Bowl or two over the last 15 years,” Jones said. “Our style is to go for it. It really is to go for it. … I do it on a risky basis. We go for it. Everything is in place, every incentive is here to do everything you can to win a Super Bowl.”
