The Dallas Cowboys waited until the middle of the 3rd quarter yesterday to finally show up and play against the Washington Redskins, and the result was another bad loss at home, and a chance to deem themselves a player in the NFC playoff race.
Instead the Cowboys are 5-6 and looking at possibly needing 5 straight wins to even have a shot at a postseason birth.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not so confident, and told the Star-Telegram that he wasn’t sure the team would be able to go 8-8 according to NFL.com.
“It looks like our best opportunity would be to end up with the best record in the NFC East,” Jones said, via The Star-Telegram. “I don’t know what that’s going to be. I don’t know if 8-8 will get it there or not, and I sure don’t know if we’re going to be 8-8.
“I’m not trying to be negative, but we’ve got to play these guys again. With how impressed I am with how they played, we’ve got our hands full up there for the last ball game.”
Jones was also asked about the status of head coach Jason Garrett, and his answer either leaves a lot to be desired, or actually says a lot about where his thoughts are.
“That would be real difficult right now, because you would have to point to things like comebacks, and that’s hollow when you are not winning the game,” Jones said. “Or last week we win one, and we have to come back to win it, but we don’t win it playing well. So that’s hollow right now.”
Well that wasn’t the dreaded vote of confidence for a coach, but even worse it suggested no confidence in his team right now.
