Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says throw Dez Bryant the ball when double covered

After disappointing losses against the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is getting irritated.

The eccentric Cowboys boss appeared on his radio show this morning, where he covered a variety of topics, one of which was the lack of touches for Dez Bryant.

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has played very well this season, much of it due to his concern for ball security. In the past, Romo has been more willing to take risks – sometimes resulting in big plays, but more often in turnovers. But this season, Romo has been more conservative, not forcing the ball into bad situations.

However, if it was up to Jones, he’d like to see Romo force things a bit more, that is, if the passes are going towards Dez Bryant:

“The same kind of throw you throw to him in the end zone the other day that he made that catch,” Jones said Tuesday morning on KRLD-FM. “He can make that catch with two people on him. You throw him the ball when he’s double-covered. He’s been thrown to when he’s double-covered. You can do that.”
