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.”
