If Jerry Jones was unhappy with the way the Dallas Cowboys had played leading up to Sunday night’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, he must be irate now. The Cowboys’ offense sputtered once again on its way to a 19-13 loss, lowering their record to 3-5. After the game, Jones was looking to get into the locker room to likely share a few not-so-nice words with his team. Or maybe he was looking to inspire them with kindness. Whatever the case, he was reportedly shut down. Jerry Jones just pounded locker room door because no one would let him in. It’s the angriest I’ve seen him all year. #Cowboys @bluestarblog — Matt Barrie (@Matt_Barrie) November 5, 2012 It could have been a simple misunderstanding, of course, but one would think he would have to have been locked out for more than a few seconds to become that angry. Before the game, it was revealed that Jones said he would have fired himself as GM by now based on some of the decisions he has made. Perhaps the team was doing him a favor. If Jones was intentionally locked out of the locker room (and we’re not saying he was), you can’t blame him for being furious. Whether the players and coaches wanted to hear from him or not, he is their boss. They don’t really have a choice.
