Time running out on Cowboys, Jerry Jones says, but he looks for a strong finish to evaluate core players

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is no longer hopeful about his team making a playoff run.

He said Tuesday on his radio show that the Cowboys are still in it but time is running out. Still, Jones wants his team playing its best to finish on a high note – if not for a possible playoff run, then for the future. He said the Cowboys would be wise to play well because the eye is on them.

“Getting it right? We do, yes,” Jones said, asked on 105.3 The Fan KRLD-FM if the Cowboys had time to fix their problems. “We're running out of time as to the playoffs. Do we have enough time? It's numerically possible, but you got to really step out here this week and do the right things to win a ballgame on the field. You have time to do that.

“Certainly you want to be going into the final weeks of the season ... playing at an uptick to play well in the playoffs. But there's another reason why you want to be playing well, too. You want to be playing well so you can basically look at your core and see where you are with your core and evaluate your core as far as seasons to come. The eye is on them.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said is surprised by the his team's disappointing record but does't blame injuries

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is admittedly and disappointingly surprised with his team's 5-6 record through 11 games.
He knows the league is tough but he thought they would be better. Jones also blame the team's rash of injuries as the source of their problems. He blames an overall lack of consistency and blames it on the players and coaches.

"I thought we'd be better than this, although I do realize the kind of competition we have in the league," Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 the Fan KRLD-FM. "We got nine teams that are 5-6 or 6-5 in the NFL right now. I knew we were in a league that has a lot of competition, but I thought we would be better."

We've been watching the "core" for many years, they have produced one playoff win. Face it, Jerry, its time to start over. Get a football guy in there to run the operations, let him make any and all decisions...including a new coaching staff. Let him weed out the players that simply are losing-type players. IE Miles Austin, Scandrick, Free, Felix Jones and several others. Lets take the trash out. Starting with the GM, then the head coach, then other members of the staff, and then some players.
