Jerry Jones Sees Dallas Cowboys’ Loss To Denver Broncos A Moral Victory
Jerry Jones has officially lost touch with reality.
“I know what’s going to happen to me when I say this, but that’s a good term,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “This is a moral victory. It’s not a loser talking here. We can build off this. I feel as good as you could possible feel at 2-3. We are going to win enough games to get where we want to be. And get knocking on the door to where we want to be. This was a moral victory today for us.”
Apparently Jones is looking on the bright side of things, because his team stuck with the now 5-0 Broncos, but let’s face it. No one in their right mind is going to build from this. Once the second quarter rolled around, the Cowboys were up 14-7, but true to form, their lead quickly faded as the Broncos scored three touchdowns within four-five minutes from each other. As word spread through the Cowboys organization of what Jones had said, it seemed the feeling wasn’t mutual, as Jones’ own son and Cowboys’ Executive Vice-President Stephen Jones, disagreed.
“There’s no moral victories in this thing,” Jones said during a weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], per The Dallas Morning News. “At the end of the day, you are what you are.”
Sitting at 2-3 and No. 1 in the NFC East, Dallas’ next few games should be easy wins for them, as they face the Washington Redskins (1-3), Philadelphia Eagles (2-3), Detroit Lions (3-2) and the Minnesota Vikings (1-3) within the next four weeks.
Ever since the Cowboys lost the ‘America’s Favorite Team’ label back in 2012, per a Public Policy Poll, Jones needs to focus on why his team hasn’t won a Super Bowl since 1995 and why they haven’t reached the playoffs since 2009.
At 70 years old, Jerry Jones, it seems, is beginning to show his age. Maybe it’s time he allows a younger generation to take over before the team digs itself into a bigger hole and it becomes too late to salvage it.
