Jerry Jones apologizes for team's 1-7 record... but they are only 1-6.
 
"I'm embarrassed," Jones said."Of course I am. And to every fan, I should have and do take the ultimate, ultimate responsibility. I do. That's the way we're structured. That's the way I run it. There's no question that I have the plan and executing it to have the best players and the best coaching that we can have. I'm dumbfounded that we are 1-7."

There was a lot of talk about how the bye came 'at a good time' for the Cowboys, but they were a pretty good team who was narrowly 1-2 at the bye, with more points scored than points against vs. three playoff contenders.

Since the bye, the Cowboys are 0-4, and have been an absolutely dreadful football team. The bye might have come just as the Cowboys were getting things together.

Evidence that the week off can hurt as much as it helps.

Which I think people should remember about the Cowboys. They didn't come into this season a bad football team. They came in a good one. Nobody on that team has improved at all, and if anything, a lot of the veterans have badly regressed. On defense and the OL, especially.

Funny, they're actually 1-6. Guess he's already planning ahead.

Jerry would be wise to remember that the Packers actually have to go out and beat his team before the Cowboys can be 1-7 though.

Just give it a week. :D

Karma is a bitch isn't it? Remember how bad we were last year? Now Dallas is feeling some of that pain. It feels so much better on this side of the fence though.

They're a mess. Very surprising that their defense is so bad.

**** Dallas ! I seriously hope they finish 1-15.

Dallas has always been successful when they have a great Coach, a great QB, a great RB, and a great WR. They don't have any of these qualities anymore. I'm actually surprised JJ is dumbfounded.

They made the right choice in sticking it out with Romo IMO, but they have not been able to get that magic combo of players together that they have enjoyed for so many years.

Kinda like the missing Hogs for us.

Ha! I was wondering the same thing

This is a play out of Snyders 2009 playbook. Only difference is that Jerry still thinks he's qualified to play GM.

I guess he wants to fire Wade...who is going to take that job I wonder? Bill Cower?

John Fox is the name I'm hearing the most these days. Gruden will (hopefully) choose between San Diego (talented team that can't get over the hump a la Tampa) and Cleveland (Ohio native/Holmgren). Cowher on the other hand won't go anywhere near an owner with a "hands on" reputation. Plus he's probably more interested in the Carolina job.

[quote=firstdown;754863]I'd argue that they did come into the season as a bad football team but full of talent. The full of talent is also in question now.[/quote]Well, then they played above their head for three weeks (mostly on defense) and then reverted to true form later.

Whatever you want to call it.
