Jerry Jones: "I sure don't know if we're going to be 8-8"

The Cowboys had a chance to be tied for the NFC East lead if they had won Thursday, with a tiebreak lead (based on division record). The Giants host the Packers on Sunday, and a loss would leave them at 6-5. But Dallas couldn't get to 6-5, instead falling to 5-6 with a 38-31 loss to the surging Redskins.

"All I can do is just sit here and look at the numbers," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "I can’t enthusiastically say that our odds, because I don’t know what New York’s going to do. It looks like our best opportunity would be to end up with the best record in the NFC East. I don’t know what that’s going to be. I don’t know if 8-8 will get it there or not, and I sure don’t know if we’re going to be 8-8. I’m not trying to be negative, but we’ve got to play these guys again. With how impressed I am with how they played, we’ve got our hands full up there for the last ball game."

The Cowboys haven't made the playoffs since 2009. They were 6-10 in 2010 and 8-8 last season. Jason Garrett, who took over in the middle of the '09 season, is 18-17 as a head coach.

Jones was asked what he has seen for him to feel good about the progress the team is making under Garrett.

"That would be real difficult right now, because you would have to point to things like comebacks and that’s hollow when you are not wining the game," Jones said. "Or last week we win one, and we have to come back to win it, but we don’t win it playing well. So that’s hollow right now. What we have to do is we play in 10 days, and we hope we have a better chance to beat Philadelphia than we did against the Redskins, and we will probably be facing [Michael] Vick."

6-10 at best. Its the level of idiodicy that the team has played to since Rd 1 at Maria. Playoffs would be a disaster especially with the crippling injury tally. Speaking of which: Why does Dallas suffer all these crucial injuries??? Is it that practice sessions are poorly run??? Is it that Marshmallow HC Garrett is too soft on players??? To me its mostly practice sessions which should build an immunity to widespread injury. Thus it is again on Garrett and he has failed again.

Lets face reality instead of PROPGANDA which is what Crocodile Face really sells. GM/Marketing man Jones does NOT WANT A WINNING SUCCESSFUL FOOTBALL TEAM. Why? Because it undermines his poor "fragile ego" and grate "pride". What,wait a second, Crocodile Face actually gets ego & pride from watching HIS OWN PATHETIC FOOTBALL TEAM??? Is he serious??? He would be laughed out of New England OR FC Barcelona OR Real Madrid. Laughed out & dealt with severely especially the fans. Fans of this once proud franchise need to realise that Dallas is run COMPLETELY THE INVERSE OF HOW MOST BIG NAME FOOTBALL CLUBS WORLDWIDE ARE RUN. REPEAT: JONES DOES NOT WANT A SUCCESSFUL FOOTBALL TEAM. THUS JONES HAS DELIVERED A PRODUCT OF ETERNAL MEDIOCRITY & FUTILITY TO PRESERVE HIS ENORMOUS "EGO" & "PRIDE". HENCE HE APPOINTS LOSERS & KNOWLEDGE CONSTRAINED FRAUDS LIKE GARRETT & ROB RYAN [IMAGINE FATSO ROBERTO AS HC- LIKE HOW IS REX DOING???] TO RUN A CHAOTIC FAILED FOOTBALL TEAM. FANS THUS NEED TO VOTE WITH THEIR BOOTS: DUMP THIS IDIOTIC FOOL'S TEAM & SUPPORT OTHER TEAMS. THE TIME HAS COME TO REJECT THE PROPAGANDA AND RUBBISH THAT JONES SERVES UP TO YOU POOR SERFS. REJECT HIS GARBAGE PLAYERS & COACHES FROM NOW ON!!!!
