Owner Jerry Jones is obviously disappointed that the Cowboys are in the midst another December tailspin that currently has them out of the playoffs.
They are tied with the Giants atop the NFC East with a 7-6 records but trail in the standings because of the head-to-head loss on Sunday.
It's frustrating to Jones because a week ago, the Cowboys were a field goal away against the Cardinals from taking a commanding two-game lead in the NFC East over the Giants heading into last Sunday’s game with a chance to clinch the division.
But they lost to the Cardinals in overtime and then blew a 12-point point lead in the last five minutes of a 37-34 loss to the Giants.
A still shocked Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM Tuesday that he already booked that game as a win when the Cowboys took the 34-22 with 5:39 left only to watch in horror as the Giants scored two touchdowns and then blocked a game-tying field goal by the Cowboys.
He said that game will linger with him for a long time as “We let that one get away.”
"I would have liked to have closed it out right now," Jones said. "If we won the last to games, that would have happened."
It was actually the fifth time this season that the Cowboys have lost after leading in the fourth quarter, including the third time that they blew a lead of 12 or more points.
Add in the fact that coach Jason Garrett’s nine losses since taking over as head coach midway through last season including eight times in which the Cowboys blew a fourth quarter lead, it has been speculated that Jones might make a coaching change if they didn’t right rally and make the playoffs.
Jones shot down that notion on Tuesday.
“That is not a question worth responding to,” Jones said before adding. “The answer is no. We are just getting started here.”
