Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t mind boosting when things are going good, but when things are going bad, well, that’s what was expected.
Jones, appearing on his radio show Tuesday morning suggested that the Cowboys were expected to lose to the Chiefs because the odds makers said so:
“We went in there as the underdog,” Jones said Tuesday on his radio show on KRLD 105.3 FM “The Fan,” asked if he considered the game a lost opportunity. “The Cowboys were the underdog going in the game. The line actually expected us not to win that game. And so, let’s keep that in mind.”
I’m not really sure where Jerry was going with this. I want to say it’s a bit of a backhanded excuse, but Jerry was quick to point out that wasn’t the case, rather insinuating that Arrowhead is a touch place to play and winning in Kansas City isn’t easy. And while that is true, it’s a place the Cowboys have to win to be taken serious as a contender, something the Chiefs (at this moment) are not.
