Jerry Jones: Cowboys fans shouldn’t dwell on loss to Eagles

Jerry Jones AP

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he’s not getting down after his team’s Sunday night debacle in Philadelphia, and Cowboys fans shouldn’t, either.

Jones said on his radio show on KRLD-FM (via the Star-Telegram) that a bad loss to a good team isn’t a reason to panic in Dallas.

“I think you’ve got an opportunity to have a good team,” Jones said. “Consequently, when I look at the makeup of our team, that’s why I don’t want to – and fans shouldn’t either – dwell on this game. Philadelphia is a good team. They are a good team right now.”

Jones may be right that no one should dwell on any one game over the course of a 16-game season, but it’s more than just one game: The Cowboys are 3-4 and not looking like a playoff team right now.

The best news for the Cowboys may be that the schedule sets up nicely for them to go on a run: Their next five games are against the Seahawks, Bills, Redskins, Dolphins and Cardinals, and it’s easy to envision them winning four of those five. And because the Cowboys still have their two games against the first-place Giants ahead of them, they control their own playoff fate.

Jones thinks his team is headed for the postseason.

“I think we’ll go right back. We just have to do that,” Jones said. “I just want us to move on past this one.”

    Cowboys fans shouldn’t dwell on all the years the the team has been impotent.

    they very well may be going back to the playoffs. the people who are all of a sudden crowning the eagles one of the best teams in football because of this win, including some of the clowns on TV, are just as moronic as the poeple who are saying the cowboys are now dead in the water because of this loss. im a giants fan…..and just like when the season started, this division is totally up for grabs…..excluding the skins of course.

    Hey Jerry, it is hard not to dwell on failure as your team has become the paradigm in the league for underachieving.

  4. jacunn2000 says: Nov 2, 2011 11:03 AM

    I think dementia has finally set in. Jerry, please get rid of Romo. And please step down and let your son run the team. Hopefully he will not be foolish enough to try and be a GM.

  5. robolundgren says: Nov 2, 2011 11:05 AM

    He’s right. Sure, they got embarrassed up and down the field but getting a beatdown like that won’t blow your whole season. Look at the Chiefs.

  6. nevin999 says: Nov 2, 2011 11:05 AM

    Cowboys team shouldn’t embarrass Cowboys fans, then they wouldn’t have to dwell on a loss.

  7. poppirt says: Nov 2, 2011 11:06 AM

    yeah, get over Dallas fans, and look foward for your next short coming…

    Jerry Jones: Cowboys fans shouldn’t dwell on the terrible job he’s done as GM.

  9. stonedwhitetrash says: Nov 2, 2011 11:11 AM

    Jerry Jones is in a severe state of denial. Many empty seats is all that can make him see the light

  10. fuzzebear says: Nov 2, 2011 11:16 AM

    As a Cowboys fan I am not dwelling on the Eagle loss. I am dwelling onthe fact that we have so much talent but can’t put it together on the field.

  11. hoobsher says: Nov 2, 2011 11:17 AM

    nah, they should.

  12. fissels says: Nov 2, 2011 11:22 AM

    Remember ? just a few short weeks ago Philly fans wanted Reid and Vick out of town asap. Who wants that now?
    He’s right ,everybody needs to relax. Things can change.

  13. bobbyhoying says: Nov 2, 2011 11:23 AM

    I do think the Cowboys should worry about what they put on film for upcoming opponents. They should worry that if Demarcus Ware gets injured they’ll have a very bad defense. They should worry that Romo is over-rated because he plays for Dallas.

  14. citizenstrange says: Nov 2, 2011 11:26 AM

    Cowboy fans probably shouldn’t dwell on the value of the Party Pass either.

  15. We'reFineThere says: Nov 2, 2011 11:28 AM

    Rob Ryan should consider a defense where the QB doesn’t need binoculars to see the safeties.

  16. gophersnot says: Nov 2, 2011 11:31 AM

    Does Emperor Jerruh end every proclamation with “I have spoken”?

  17. drshakedown74 says: Nov 2, 2011 11:44 AM

    I THINK THEY SHOULD DWELL AWAY!!!! I AM.

  18. willyalistentothis says: Nov 2, 2011 11:47 AM

    Very smart Jerry. You know if people dwell on this game they will to the reality that you have no idea how to run a football team. Once again, you have been exposed.

  19. phillyfan4ever says: Nov 2, 2011 11:50 AM

    And Eagles fans arn’t dwelling on the Win over the Cowboys, were focused on the Bears for MNF

  20. peytonwantsaflag says: Nov 2, 2011 11:52 AM

    But Jerry, if fans don’t dwell on the on-field debacle then they will continue to dwell on the off-field debacle that includes awful hiring of coaches and a bunch of Superbowl miscues. I would think you’d rather have the former wouldn’t you?

  21. 4evrnyt says: Nov 2, 2011 12:05 PM

    OK, well you refund ticket prices after a loss and people might not dwell on the fact that they just spend $250 to spend 3 hours watching your team look pathetic.

  22. upperdecker19 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:13 PM

    Tiki is flabbergasted by Jerrah’s comments

  23. mwhite28 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:19 PM

    Im pretty sure the Cowboys 4 losses have come from teams that are in the top 10 of the power rankings. Not only that, we did hand san fran there only loss and we basically took the life out of the redskins. For all the haters out there, just look at who the giants/eagles have lost to in comparison

  24. lbdpatch says: Nov 2, 2011 12:20 PM

    It wasnt a loss It was a total beat down on all sides of the ball. Other than Ware part of time the Eagles shut everybody down. All you haters remember everyone said It would take the Eagles 5 or 6 weeks to get it together and also remember the packers started at 1-4 and one the superbowl. GO EAGLES !!!

  25. lakedog19352 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:24 PM

    I been a Cowboys fan for 36 of my 42 years and love them thru thick and thin and let me tell you…I am dwelling on this.

    And I am dwelling on this even more so due to the reaction from many of the players, who don’t seem to be dwelling at all (this based on some players tweets and various stories on how many spent the next night or two at various get togethers)

    Maybe me, like many football fans, do in fact dwell too much?

  26. Land Snark says: Nov 2, 2011 12:25 PM

    Actually the Cowboys loss was just salt on the open wound of the Rangers blowing it in the World Series to the Cards.

    Dallas must be one depressing place right now. They didn’t even get to see the Mavs NBA Champ banner raised last night because of the lockout.

  27. ppc50 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:34 PM

    The losses to the Jets, Lions, and Pats – all very winnable (mostly Lions and Jets)- will cost the Cowboys a chance at the playoffs. Garrett’s play calling has been the issue and Romo’s errors, based on those play calls, have been awful. The way they played vs the Eagles was as bad as when they lost, got blown-out, to the Ravens and Eagles 2 weeks in a row, ruining their chance for the playoffs. Garrett and Romo say the same thing after every loss and it is a disgrace. The team needs to get fired up and Garrett is just not the guy to do it.

  28. Land Snark says: Nov 2, 2011 12:37 PM

    @mwhite28

    Great sentiment except that the same can be said for the Eagles:

    Eagles losses-

    Niners, Giants, Bills and Falcons. All teams at the top of their division.

    Now the Giants have little excuse aside from the fact that their roster has been a MASH unit all year long.

  29. buddybowl69 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:41 PM

    Jerry, you’re doing a wonderful job as GM/Coach/Scout. Your players are fantastic, performing well.

    DON’T CHANGE A THING!

    Remember, we all luv ‘ya, just the way you are.

  30. snarkzilla says: Nov 2, 2011 12:42 PM

    lbdpatch, the Packers started 3-3, not 1-4. That said, if Philly can sustain that level of play throughout the rest of the season, they’ll be a threat to everyone.

  31. seabreezes51 says: Nov 2, 2011 12:50 PM

    Stay healthy Jerry, Stay in charge!!

    Us Eagles fans love it that you run your team as you see fit!!

  32. jucam1 says: Nov 2, 2011 1:02 PM

    Thanks Jerrah, please stay healthy and run the Cowgirls the exact same way you have been for the last decade, as a matter of fact, i think you should also coach, you are an amazing asset to the rest of the NFC East…. Philly thinks you’re doing a great job!

  33. mikehockhurtz says: Nov 2, 2011 1:15 PM

    I’m dwelling on the fact that Jerry still makes football decisions…..sadly dwelling

  34. tmac4454 says: Nov 2, 2011 1:19 PM

    First I must say this must a set up for Dallas to be in the post season according to the upcoming schedule. They play weak teams from here on out…Can someone tell me why does Jenny Jones have a show..Is he the Head Coach or a player…Shame he is taking the spotlight from someone actually plays or teach the game. Just saying…

  35. sailorborn says: Nov 2, 2011 1:25 PM

    The Cowboys have shown themselves to be a second tier team for the past 10 years. They still are. So what if they make the playoffs. As they have recently, they will bilge out in one game

  36. sadskinsfan89 says: Nov 2, 2011 1:26 PM

    I love how he’s the only owner that holds press conferences after every game.

  37. cowboynation919 says: Nov 2, 2011 1:27 PM

    Honestly Jerry? We Cowboy fans have been dwelling since the mid 90′s when our hot streak ran out.

    Your a passionate owner, I respect that. But you don’t need to do EVERYTHING. Bring in a GM and move out of the way.

  38. dallasux says: Nov 2, 2011 1:39 PM

    Fine, dont dwell…But be very, very afraid. Anyone with eyes will tell you the eagles are coming together.

  39. streatordave says: Nov 2, 2011 1:49 PM

    Jones thinks his team is headed for the postseason.

    “I think we’ll go right back. We just have to do that,” Jones said. “I just want us to move on past this one.”

    I want his medication!

  40. turgidsen says: Nov 2, 2011 2:02 PM

    Thank you Cach Jones for encouragement. Geez , why doesn’t this plastic faced moron just fire his head coach and coach the Cowgirls himself.

  41. 8man says: Nov 2, 2011 2:02 PM

    ..because more losses to other teams are coming?

  42. memphisyinzer says: Nov 2, 2011 2:03 PM

    “Their next five games are against the Seahawks, Bills, Redskins, Dolphins and Cardinals, and it’s easy to envision them winning four of those five.”

    I wouldn’t say it’s easy to envision them winning. Conceivable, yes, but I don’t believe it will be easy at all.

    As long as Jones maintains his ego, nothing is going to get better for the Dallas fans. I don’t see any coach that values his skills going to work for Jones, just to be his puppet.

    I feel sorry for the entire NFC East. Not only do they have Jones as an owner, but the also have Snyder. That’s a pair that will be a full-house any day.

    But, I agree with some of the earlier comments…..Jerry, you’re doing one helluva a job and don’t change anything!

  43. abninf says: Nov 2, 2011 2:15 PM

    I’m a life long Dallas fan living 5 minutes from Cowboys stadium. Been going to games long before Jerry Jones dreamed of owning this team and screwing Laundry. I don’t care about them just making the playoffs. I am concerned they can’t beat good teams. So they have a soft schedule coming up. Means nothing if they can’t beat good teams in the postseason. Ware is the only reason we aren’t 1-6. He’s our Peyton Manning. If he goes down we won’t beat anyone. But as it is, the season is lost. This is not a Superbowl team.

  44. alldayvikings says: Nov 2, 2011 2:30 PM

    3 targets, 3 catches for Miles Austin. get the ball to your best player.

  45. bobhk says: Nov 2, 2011 2:32 PM

    One game in and of itself is may not be a big deal (although if they come up short of the playoffs by 1 game it would be).
    What should be more worrisome if you are a cowboys fan is the manner in which they got blown out. It was lot worse than 34-7. It could have been 44-0. Good teams don’t get blown out generally.
    Even if they pad the W-L with the cream puffs they’ll get blown out against good teams.

  46. romoscollarbone says: Nov 2, 2011 2:40 PM

    PHILADELPHIA!! I’m still stuck on that Detroit game.

  47. RomosRibs says: Nov 2, 2011 2:41 PM

    What was he supposed to say? Why is pft dwelling on this? Move on.

  48. alaricsrevenge says: Nov 2, 2011 3:31 PM

    Soon to be cellar dwellers

  49. jerruhjones21 says: Nov 2, 2011 3:50 PM

    I am, like many of my fellow Cowgirls fans, dwelling on the fact that you an incompetent GM…

  50. howley1 says: Nov 2, 2011 4:39 PM

    As I said before, obviously a fluke. It happens sometimes. Eagles were on, Cowboys were flat, end of story.

  51. rodericksilva says: Nov 2, 2011 6:27 PM

    As a football fan I say… It’s one loss early in the season. It gives you time to fix what was exposed.

    As an Eagles fan I say… Hell yes start worrying about it cause you just got it pushed all the way in. Hard not to dwell on it because it was the Eagles.

    I’ll be classy and go with the first answer ;)

  52. dd393 says: Nov 2, 2011 8:47 PM

    Right. Cowboys fans should be dwelling on the crummy drafts that The Jerry has been putting together.

  53. polegojim says: Nov 2, 2011 11:05 PM

    Cowboys are my ‘second’ team… and I’m struggling with that.

    No more glory…or even respect
    No more ‘America’s’ team.
    Flopping like a flat tire
    Floundering with inept Head Coaches
    Struggling with a meddling Owner
    Unwilling to admit OBVIOUS blunders and trying to cover it over with Pride.

    Pride in what Jerry? Not in anything you’ve built… other than a massive stadium that houses a struggling team and organization.

    You’ve run this once VERY PROUD organization into the ground.
    You’ve milked it dry and bilked Texans for your billions while producing squat in return.
    Once you burned through ‘Jimmy’s team’ you got what you deserved.

    How ’bout them Cowboys….. yes, how about ‘em Jerry?
