Jerry Jones feeling good but no longer has playoff dreams; that ended on Thanksgiving

The Cowboys are certainly feeling good about themselves and how they have played since Jason Garrett took over for Wade Phillps.

The Cowboys are 3-1 under Garrett following Sunday's 38-35 overtime victory at the Colts. Not only are they playing well but they confident and feeling good.

They now believing they can win any time they step on the field.

But rather than dream about the possibilities of what might can happen if they win all their games, the Cowboys are still lamenting what could have happened if they hadn't gotten off to such a dreadful start.

Atop of that list is owner Jerry Jones, who says he is no more surprised by the team's 3-1 mark under Garrett as he was about the team's 1-7 mark under Phillips to start the season.

And while Jones if feeling good about the Cowboys, he says are still tainted by their horrid start and there is nothing they can do to make up for that.

Moreover, Jones, an admitted dreamer,  says no illiusions about the Cowboys winning out getting into the playoff race at 8-8.

He said those dreams finally ended with the loss to the Saints on Thanksgiving Day, which gave the Cowboys their eighth loss and prevented them from winning out finish 9-7 and then possibly winding up in playoff contention.

"I don’t mind telling you until Thanksgiving, making the playoffs had never left my mind at 9-7," Jones said. "(9-7 might do it) because  of the way other people are knocking each other off. A nine win team might get in there. But now, no."
