Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones called the Cowboys 51-48 loss to the Denver Broncos a moral victory. That immediately got some backlash from Cowboys fans and his son, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones, disagreed publicly.
“I’m so encouraged,” 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.”
In a local radio interview today, Jones backed off his comments a bit when talking about the upcoming game against the Washington Redskins.
“We certainly need this win in our record,” Jones said on KRLD-FM, via ESPN Dallas. ”The last two [losses] are gonna be a real challenge for us to overcome of having at least one win of these last three [losses]. But the promise of things to come was brighter when [the Broncos] game was finished the other day than when it started, and the promise was because we started to see a lot coming together there with our offense with Tony [Romo].”
