Jerry Jones wants Cowboys offense to play like they practice


The Dallas Cowboys offense hasn’t been able to attack defenses the same way that they were doing early in the season, thanks to defenses keying in on star wide receiver Dez Bryant and limiting him in the passing game.

While the team hasn’t been their usual self, owner and general manager Jerry Jones likes what quarterback Tony Romo and offensive coordinator Bill Callahan have been doing in practice and they he really wants to see the team perform in games the way that they do on the practice field.

I saw it really good in preseason,’’ Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I saw it good in training camp. And I’ve seen it good here in game preparation. I have seen us limited in sometimes what we practice out there as to getting that to the field during the game. That’s one of the things that we reviewed and are trying to get better at, to get those adjustments that we have made offensively to actually get that involved in the game.’

“The more we can do that means things are going as planned and we’ll be better if we can get a lot of the things we’ve practiced on and implemented during the offseason on the field.’’

The offense may be disappointing Jerry Jones, but they have plenty of time to turn it around and he will likely forgive the team of their woes if they are able to go on a late season run, claim the NFC East title and do some damage in the postseason.

    Really, Jerry?

    You want the Cowboys to play like they practice? No wonder they look good in practice. Look at the defense they’re up against. Bad as they are, even the Cowboys’ offense can score on the Cowboys’ defense!

    I’m beginning to believe Jones is truly delusional.

    I watched a show about the rise of Tom Brady and the Patriots on NFL network and it was depressing knowing that the Cowboys have had twenty years to develop another winning tradition without success. I noted owner Kraft who was wise enough to hire a competent general manager and coach and then stay out of the way. It sorrows me to witness Jerry Jones being so full of himself that he does not realize the success of the Patriots could have possibly also been his if he had just hired a good general manager and stayed out of the way. Although this is frustrating as a fan it is also sad to see any person who is financially successful to be completely apathetic toward the people who made that possible.
