Yahoo!Sports columnist Michael Silver interviewed Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones in the leadup to North Texas' Super Bowl, and found that Jones is more than a little down about the 2010 season.
“In the 21 years we’ve had it, I’d say it’s the worst one we’ve had,” Jones is quoted as saying. “We’ve had bad teams that didn’t do well, but maybe you had that feeling going in. This year, we were so hopeful about our chances, and there we were at 1-5 with no quarterback and pretty much knowing where we’d end up.”
“We had such high expectations for this team – and that’s why this is the toughest season we’ve had. The overwhelming thing you think about is what went wrong. And to sit there and have to chew on that, there’s not a lot of happiness.”
