Play dead and let the other team score? How 'unnatural,' Jerry Jones says

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t like the idea of letting another team score, even if it might help you.

To him, it’s plain “unnatural.”

“It’s like if somebody was trying to hurt you or strangle you. It’s unnatural,” he said Friday in his weekly appearance on KRLD 105.3 FM “The Fan.” “It’s unnatural to act like … to go limp on your own volition and say, ‘Maybe they’ll think I’m dead.’ It’s just unnatural.”

Jones was thinking back to the last two minutes of last week’s game in which Denver got a first down and ran the clock down to two seconds before kicking a field goal to win it. If the Cowboys had let conceded a touchdown on any play before that, they could have gotten the ball back and tried to re-tie the game.

“Now, that’s not a very good analogy,” Jones said. “But I don’t think I could do the unnatural thing and let them score.”
