If you had told Cowboys owner Jerry Jones while he celebrated his third title at Super Bowl XXX that he wouldn’t have his fourth title by Super Bowl 50, he wouldn’t have believed it.
Jones admitted that he figured the Cowboys would have sustained success over the last two decades, and he wouldn’t have expected to be sitting here in 2016 wondering when his team will finally get back to the big game.
“Well, I saw how we got there for the first three that I was involved with,” Jones said at the Senior Bowl, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m the most surprised person in Mobile, or the country, that we haven’t been back to and competed in a Super Bowl. But I know firsthand that you can go from the outhouse to the penthouse, and I’ve experienced it. Consequently, that fact has always driven me to know that it’s just around the corner. There’s a pony in here somewhere.”
Jones has expressed a lot of confidence in his coach, Jason Garrett, and his quarterback, Tony Romo, and their ability to get the team back to a Super Bowl. But when you’ve gone 20 years without getting to a Super Bowl, something has to change. Maybe the Cowboys need a better general manager.
