The Dallas Cowboys suffered a crushing defeat to the Denver Broncos. The Cowboys played well offensively, scored 48 points but still couldn’t pull out the win against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Despite losing, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones remained optimistic.
“I’m so encouraged,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m extremely encouraged over the way we competed, the way we were undaunted. I’m encouraged we played at the level we played in a lot of areas.
“This was a moral victory today for us.”
Jerry’s son, Stephen Jones, and the Cowboys executive vice president disagrees.
“There’s no moral victories in this thing,” Stephen said during a weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “At the end of the day, you are what you are.”
“It was obviously a very difficult one to digest,” he said. “I know we’ll bounce back as a team, and we’ll get to work. There’s some positive things to build on, in terms of this team, but certainly no moral victories there.”
