Jerry Jones sees tonight’s game as an opportunity to make a statement

Tonight, the Cowboys and Eagles will renew their rivalry at Lincoln Financial Field.  For the Eagles, who entered the bye at 2-4, it’s a huge game if they hope to get to the playoffs.

It’s also a huge game for the Cowboys, if they hope to get to the playoffs and make some noise there.

Owner Jerry Jones told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that the Eagles game in Philly has been circled on the calendar since training camp.  Jones said he sees it as a significant opportunity to make a statement about who the Cowboys are as a football team.  Jones also believes the game could possibly be a spring board toward a special season.

Still, both teams are behind where they thought they’d be, and both teams need to win tonight.

  1. If they lose, Jason garret will get blown out of there. Jones could have kept Casper Milque toast Wade Phillips to be 3-4.

    Unlikely…but but if so, two words.

  3. Sh!t i would have cheesesteaks circled too. You ever have one? Its the only thing good in philly besides the eagles being 2-4

  4. Jones must have a brain tumor. Its making him even dumber. What statement can you make about your own team if you beat a squad that is 2-4? That the Eagles still aren’t very good? Big shocker there. Maybe it is all the facial surgery pulling the skin tighter and squeezing his brain.

  5. For a team that never practiced with its defensive coordinator until after the lockout, the Cowboys’ D has been solid. It should only improve as the season goes on. But the Eagles might have a desperation about them tonight that the Cowboys cannot match on the road. The Cowboys will need to take the crowd out of the game early and then hope Romo doesn’t forget which side he’s on in the fourth quarter.

  6. As an Eagles fan, the way I look at this game is that if the Eagles don’t win they are done for this year. The rest of the schedule will amount to just playing out the string. What’s amazing to me is that the Eagles have lost 5 straight games on their home field. Who’d a thunk it? They have to turn it around and NOW. I’m sick of Andy Reid’s excuses and his “I have to do a better job” malarkey. Start tonight, Andy! Start tonight!

  7. Was the statement, “we’re frauds”?

    Dallas isn’t even in the Eagles class. Eagles have addressed early season problems, and are the class of the division. Just a matter of time on the Giants collapse

    I want to see Ryan’s quotes after the game, move overhyped coaches in the league, him and his brother

  8. The statement is being made… By the eagles. The boys look ridiculous once again. No matter who is coaching they are a joke. I wonder what the issue is Jerry?
