Jerry Jones Weighs In On The Cowboys' Week One Collapse

Being the owner and all of the team, Jerry Jones is more than entitled to speak his mind about his team and how they’re performing. The Dallas Cowboys owner has never been shy about doing just that in the past. On Monday, Jones joined Jagger & Barsky on KRLD in Dallas to talk about his team’s 13-7 loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Here’s a few choice excerpts from the interview about Jones’ reaction to the botched play at the end of the first half.

On the play call at the end of the first half:

“That was a bad call, but one of the things that Wade (Phillips) does the best is his game calling. He’s one of the best. That was one that wasn’t. Other than that, that was about it.”

On what was going through his head watching that play:

“First of all, Romo, if you look at his skills and the thing that he does, he will from time to time make an impromptu play. That’s what I call the Favreish factor in him so he’ll do that. Again the mistake was all the way through the play and not going to the knee and just killing the play. But again, that doesn’t happen very often with Wade.”
