With Cowboys now 2.5 games behind Giants, Jerry Jones says opportunities starting to run out

Now that his team is 3-4, with last-moment losses in two of the last three weeks, Jerry Jones said the clock is running on the Cowboys’ chances to catch the Giants.

“It is running, and we’re starting to get very urgent, having to be very urgent – not that we shouldn’t be,” he said after the 29-24 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday night. “I thought we played urgent when we played behind. But we’re starting to run out of our opportunities here with New York where they are in the East.”

The Cowboys are 2 1/2 games behind the Giants, who are 6-2. And now the teams have split the season series, negating the edge the Cowboys earned with their season-opening win at New York.

The math doesn’t look good for the Cowboys. Even if the Giants were to merely split their last eight games, they’d reach 10-6. Ghe Cowboys would need to go 7-2 the rest of the way to reach 10-6.

If the Cowboys had won, they would have been a half-game behind the Giants with a tiebreaker edge.

“We know what we’ve got ahead of us,” Jones said. “Now we’ve got our work cut out for us. We really do. We wanted to – with them leading our division – we needed to win this ballgame.”

G Men are absolutely kidding themselves to call this a "win". They GOT TORCHED AND THEIR SECONDARY STOOD THERE FOR THREE QUARTERS AND WATCHED WITTEN AUSTIN & BRYANT. PEDESTRIANS THER WERE HOPELESS!!! DALLAS HAS SHOWN EVERYBODY ELSE HOW TO TORCH THE GIANTS AND HOW TO SMASH THEM UP. IF I'M GREEN BAY CHICAGO OR ANY OTHER NFC RIVAL OF THEIRS I MIMICK WHAT DALLAS DID TO THEIR SLOW SPECTATOR SECONDARY AND TORCH THEM. JUST SUBTRACT 4-5 OF DALLAS'S TURNOVERS AND THE G-MEN ARE COOKED - DONE. THE DALLAS DEFENSE IS FAR SUPERIOR TO THAT OF THE G-MEN. MARIA THE GREAT GOT JUST 197 YARDS AFTER A GIFT OF 5 TURNOVERS!!! COME ON G-MEN ARE GOING NOWHERE BUT HENSON PARK. IF YOU CANCEL THEIR PASS RUSH THEY HAVE VERY LITTLE ELSE AND G-MEN HAD NO BUSINESS EVEN BEING IN THIS GAME.

Hey Jerry, do the math...You don't have a legitimate head coach, you don't have a center, you don't have a legitimate #2 receiver (Bryant SUCKS), you don't have a #3 receiver (Ogletree sucks worse than Bryant), you don't have a running back (Felix "Glass" Jones is washed up), and the absolute number one most important thing the Cowboys need right now is a GM, and not an old meddling fool of an owner who thinks he is capable of being the GM. I would think that after the past 16 years of mediocre teams even a MORON like you would finally figure it out and hire someone to run your team for you. ^~^

The Cowboys will continue to fall behind not only the Giants for the NFC East but other teams who are ahead of them in the wild card chase. As long as Garrett and Romo are still here. They will not win. Sooner or later Jerry you will have to make the change at those two spots. It's that simple. Everyone else sees those two guys failure except you. This is pathetic...
