Jerry Jones just can’t win these days. His up and down Dallas team came razor close of upsetting the New York Giants. The term is tightly knitted to the Cowboy fabric, good but not good enough. Jones hurts when it goes bad, and with an opportunity to get back in the middle of the NFC race, Dez Bryant’s near spectacular game winner served the close theme we are using here. Jones spoke to RJ and Shan on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas about the Giants loss, and the issues plaguing the team. “I’m sick. We had three or four chances there near the end to win a game that took a super effort to get back in. And so there were those kinds of swings that we all experienced, and you are able to overcome that kind of early bad play, and then make that thing be viable for a win at the end against a team of the Giants character. And we all know they’re one of the better teams — it’s very disappointing. And I’m very disappointed, but not discouraged at all.” “I’ve often said that a football team is like trying to hold two handfuls of jello. When you get part of it under control, the other part’s coming out the other side. And that’s football. It can be a positive thing, and when it gets going, it’s a thing of beauty. But until it gets there, there’s all types of continuing challenges. Turnovers, it’s well known, it’s said often, and it’s said from the first day you walk in the locker room — if you can’t hold the ball and keep the ball when you’re supposed to have it, you’re usually not going to win. And it takes just an inordinate thing, it takes a Romo — similar to the Buffalo game that we had six, seven years ago when we had all the turnovers and still won — that’s rare. The turnovers will usually do you under and the other day that’s the thing that got us.” var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
