The Cowboys have looked nothing like a playoff team in their last three games. Expectations were high after a season-opening victory over the defending Super Bowl champs, but losses to the Seahawks and Bears and an ugly win over the Buccaneers have left the Cowboys looking like a .500 team at best. Even Jerry Jones had a difficult time putting a positive spin on how his group has played through their first four games. "We thought we would play better in the last three ballgames," the Cowboys owner and general manager said Friday on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM. "Certainly in Seattle, we were not above expectations. But we met expectations and were elated with our first game. But we didn't play as well against Seattle, a good team, hard team to beat out there. And certainly didn't have the game we wanted to have out here against Tampa, but we won it. And then we laid an egg here against the Bears. So, I would say that we're not up to expectations but certainly, at this juncture, not in any way dismayed or in any way thinking we won't be the team that we want to be." With the Cowboys sitting at 2-2, Jones said he sees a league "that is basically 2-2." Eight other teams share that record with the Cowboys. Two teams are undefeated, one team is 4-1 and eight others have three wins. "We haven't really lost ground," Jones said. "We might have missed some opportunities to gain ground, but we haven't lost ground. Secondly, I think we can have a chance to be significantly better. The kinds of things that are beating us, are the kinds of things that coaches and players can correct." Follow Jon Machota on Twitter:@jonmachota
