Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones has stuck his foot in his mouth, again.
A day after Jones’ own son, Stephen Jones, disagreed with what he said, Jones wanted to clear the air and reiterate what he truly meant by his moral victory comment and he did so Wednesday during his weekly spot on KRLD-FM.
“The promise of things to come was brighter when that game was finished the other day than when it started,” Jerry Jones said, per The Fan Shows. “The promise was because we see a lot coming together with our offense — with Tony [Romo].”
Tony Romo seems to get the blame placed onto him most of the time, but the loss to the Denver Broncos wasn’t entirely his fault. Yes, Romo threw for 506 yards and five touchdowns. Some Dallas fans would say the interception late in the fourth-quarter at their own 24-yard line, which led to a game-winning field goal, sealed their fate, but remember, Dallas’ defense gave up 517 total yards in the loss.
With the game on the line and the pressure mounting, Romo can’t seem to come through. After the game, NBC broadcaster Rodney Harrison nailed what is wrong with quarterback Tony Romo right on the head when he said that Romo is “thinking about making a mistake, not about making a play.”
Maybe instead of focusing on what he should have said, Jones needs to realize that maybe rewarding Romo with that six-year, $108 million contract wasn’t the smartest thing to do.
