We passed along some quotes last night where Jerry Jones second guessed his coach about the team’s conservative play-calling late in the fourth quarter.
It turns out he first guessed Jason Garrett as well.
Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports writes that Jones was already grumbling in the owner’s box as the Cowboys were running to set up a punt.
“They’re gonna get at least a field goal,” Jones said at the time. “We’ll be lucky to get to overtime.”
The Cowboys didn’t get to overtime, as Tom Brady led the Patriots on a game-winning drive.
“When you get in a situation like that, you’ve got to go for the kill,” Jones said. “I felt like we could’ve been more aggressive.
Garrett, meanwhile, said that he was trusting the team’s defense. He was seen after the game trying to explain things to Jones.
The Cowboys coach played not to lose. You have to least throw one pass against a secondary that has been vulnerable.
