Jerry Jones remembers the way Romo bounced back from Detroit debacle last year, still believes in him

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is disappointed in his team’s 2-2 start but he is not ready to give up hope.

He said the Giants lost their first two games last season and went on to win the Super Bowl. He also pointed out that a number of teams across the league are in the same position as the Cowboys.

“I’m tempered by the fact that it’s early in the season,” said Jones in the hallway outside his offices at the team’s Valley Ranch headquarters. “I’m tempered by the fact the world champions last year won nine in the regular season, lost their first two and at one point were behind by two games. I’m tempered by the fact that we are 2-2 along with the rest of the league. I like Bill Callahan what he is doing with the offensive line. We played as well with offensive line as we did the last three games. But I’m not trying to say I’m happy at all. I’m disappointed.”

Jones said he feels good about several injured players returning after the bye, including nose tackle Jay Ratliff, linebacker Anthony Spencer, linebacker Alex Albright, defensive end Kenyon Coleman, center Phil Costa and possibly safety Matt Johnson.

Jones said also excited about the presence of quarterback Tony Romo, despite the five turnovers in the 34-18 loss to the Bears Monday night.

He pointed out that Romo bounced back from a similar meltdown in the fourth game against Detroit last year when he threw three second half interceptions, including two pick sixes, as the Cowboys blew a 27-3 lead, only to have the best season of his career.

“I like where we are with Romo at quarterback,” Jones said. “No one learns more from his experiences than Tony. This time last year with Detroit in the fourth game, point noted. He came back and never played better. I think the Detroit game had something to do with that.  If we can get the same kind of response he had last year when he had a downer. If he can come back and do that we will be fine.”

And so we will go on with another mediocre year and Jerry is content. Hey we are just the fans and I know our opinion does not mean a thing Jerry. This is the same old excuse for you year in and year out. So we settle with another decent season (which normally ends in December) and then we just wind up being eliminated in the playoffs. Same old song and dance every year for the past so many Jerry years. Oh well Go Cowboys,
Love Your Fans

Jerry Jones is lost. He is making this all about Romo. How about Dez Bryant not knowing the offense? How about wide receivers dropping balls? How about no running game at all? A head coach that is not capable of firing his team up? A bad O-line? A team with ZERO home field advantage? And Jerry Jones is boiling this down to Romo rebounding? The more I hear JJ running his mouth, the clearer it gets that he needs to get a football guy to run the team. If the media, diehard fans, former players and coaches etc all see that the # 1 problem with this team is JERRY JONES....why can't Jerry see it?
