Jerry Jones okay with ‘Hollywood’ label for Cowboys


The Dallas Cowboys are taking on the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. That means facing former defensive tackle formerly known as Jay Ratliff, tight end Martellus Bennett and special teams coach Joe DeCamillis. While Ratliff said it was like any other game, DeCamillis took a shot at his former team.

“It’s a little bit more like Hollywood [in Dallas], and here it’s a little bit more, probably, a little tamer,” DeCamillis said, via the Dallas Morning News. “But they’re both great organizations, and both have had a lot of storied tradition and a lot of championships.”

Linebacker Sean Lee addressed the Hollywood claim saying if you lost focus that was on you. Now Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones addressed it, and not so surprisingly he embraced it.

“I don’t know how I would take exception with their perception,” Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan Dallas/Fort Worth.  “They get those checks to play football. . . . I understand. I have heard that since I bought the franchise that the Cowboys were about glitz and glitter. . . . The glitz and glitter though have got to be able to kick their you-know-what on the football field or it doesn’t make it fun anymore.”
