Jerry Jones wants Cowboys’ offense to play like they practice


Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones was adamant during the offseason that quarterback Tony Romo and offensive coordinator Bill Callahan would have a greater role this season in shaping the offense, and that we’d see a more innovative offensive attack out of Dallas.

So how are the results? Jones says he liked what he saw in training camp and the preseason, and he likes what he sees in practice, but he wants to see it on the field.

I saw it really good in preseason,’’ Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I saw it good in training camp. And I’ve seen it good here in game preparation. I have seen us limited in sometimes what we practice out there as to getting that to the field during the game. That’s one of the things that we reviewed and are trying to get better at, to get those adjustments that we have made offensively to actually get that involved in the game.’’

Jones sounds a little disappointed that the offense in the regular season hasn’t looked the way he envisioned before the season.

“The more we can do that means things are going as planned and we’ll be better if we can get a lot of the things we’ve practiced on and implemented during the offseason on the field,’’ Jones said.

Whatever disappointment Jones has about the offense, they don’t affect Jones’s opinion of head coach Jason Garrett, who will return in 2014.

  1. Shut up Jerry!!! Besides, your only chance of getting your offense to play like they practice is 16 games vs the Jaguars..

    Or you could ask the opponents nicely if they would use your defense.

    Take your pick

  2. I’d worry about that putrid defense of yours, not the offense.

    Especially considering you have a QB whom is prime to turning the ball over.

    Since 1996 the Cowboys are 133-133 with one playoff game. That’s the sign of a failing franchise.

    Cowboys won’t break the drought until J.Jones steps down or dies

  3. Dear Mr. Jones,

    You should be quiet and supportive and let them play without the extra pressure you seem to find every chance you get.

    your friend,

    Mr. Mara

  4. Has Jerry ever been more than two days without saying something in the media? For having the brain of a 40 year old he still can’t comprehend that the defense is the problem. Kiffin’s style of D was effective when football was run balanced.

  5. Jerry Jones and Al Davis… both stayed involved in the day-to-day much too long. Neither of them recognizing that they are/were the problem. Enjoy the mediocrity Dallas fans… it only gets worse – just ask Raider fans.

  6. The offense looks great in practice according to Jones. Who do they practice against? Oh yeah, your defense. Unfortunately, you have play against other teams in order to win games.

  7. Somebody needs to tell Jerrah that in practice Romo wears a red vest, defense doesn’t hit and tackle so it’s always easier to “look good in practice.” Kinda like jerrah looks professional in public but how does he look every morning before his daily botox.

  8. That’s funny, they play against themselves in practice, now if they could just play themselves in the regular season…..

  9. there gona stink for at least a couple more yrs because that moron locked into romo long term and last wk he said his puppet garrett would be back next yr hahahahaha

  10. I’ve stopped feeling bad for Cowboys fans because they keep showing up every week. You are not being a ‘bad fan’ by demonstrating your frustration in the only way owners understand – by hitting their wallet.

  11. That’s because they don’t have all of their ‘Glory-Holes’, ‘Special Sauce’ and ‘Coming-Outs’ available during the games like they do at practice. Maybe London’s Team should start playing like they practice.

  12. Somebody needs to tell Jerry that the defense that offense practices against is TERRIBLE….that may have something to do with how good the offense is in “practice”

  13. You’re doing a heck of a job, Jerry, but I think you need to become more involved. I’m sure most Eagles, Skins and Giants fans would be on board with it.

  14. Jerry Jones wants Cowboys’ offense to play like they practice—————where will they find a crappy def. like dallas every week?

  15. “The more we can do that means things are going as planned and we’ll be better if we can get a lot of the things we’ve practiced on and implemented during the offseason on the field,’’ Jones said.

    It’s week 12 Jerry. If you haven’t done it by now I doubt you can any time soon. But don’t give up there’s a new off season for you just around the corner.

  16. This is Cowboy fans future, more of the same until Jerry steps down and lets his idiot son continue more of the same. The Cowboys are going to be the Bengals, a family owned team that allows stupid know-nothing family members to run the show.

    Boycott the Cowboys, maybe if enough of yas smarten up and leave the stadium empty, he will sell, otherwise you’re going to suffer for the rest of your time on Earth.

  17. Awesome! Another jerry jones has spoken daily update. Am i the only one sick of hearing what this babbling buffoon has to say?? The dallas cowboys are avg team nothing more. Why the media treats them like they have 10 win seasons with playoff berths every yr is beyond me. Be like getting cleveland browns updates everyday. So please spare the pft followers what jerry jones has to stay about his overrated team.

    Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

  18. I don’t know how they concentrate at all with that giant Radiation King hanging over the field. I’d be constantly expecting it to tear loose and crush the team.

  19. Coach Jones has spoken!

    (One might wonder what ounce of dignity Garrett had for being “Coach Jones'” fool, but then again, he does have a few million reasons…)

  20. You people don’t know a darn thing about football and how it’s run.Jerry Jones is doing an outstanding job!

    the ghost of Al Davis,Ralph Wilson Dan Snyder

  21. Maybe the offense of the Cow Piles doesn’t play as well in real games because it is facing a true defense instead of their own guys–a defense that allowed a record number of first downs against the Saints! Yippee!

  22. JJ should hire Leslie Frazier as his head coach. Like Jerry, Frazier never fails to mention how good the team looks in practice at his weekly press conferences.

  23. “We’re talking about practice. I mean listen, we’re sitting here talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, but we’re talking about practice. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it’s my last but we’re talking about practice man.” — Allen Iverson

  24. I wonder if any other owners ever speak? I guess they do but apparently whatever they say makes enough sense but all JJ has to do is open his mouth and we’re guaranteed a good laugh. Is he really interviewed as often as we see these silly stories about him or does he just go out of his way to voluntarily blurt nonsense? Did he really get interviewed the other day and get asked about Jason Garrett and then again the very next day about the job he’s doing as a GM and again yesterday about the Cowboys offense? This guy has ruined the Cowboys and I really do feel for their fans. As a Niner fan living in Tx, most of my friends are Cowboys fans and every single one of them is resigned to the fact that Dallas will never be worth a mention as long a JJ’s running the show. As long as Dallas remains one of the top $$$ making franchises in the world, Jerry the businessman is doing great.

  25. Obviously one reason the Cowboys offense impresses Jones in practice is because it plays against the COWBOYS DEFENSE.

  26. The offense would play the way they practice if every team had aninjury plauged defense like the cowboys. Jerry needs to just be an owner hes clueless

  27. “Jerry Jones wants Cowboys’ offense to play like they practice”

    I think all teams would like to play against their own defense, whom they know, and who isn’t allowed to hit them.

  28. I can’t understand why this man opens his mouth. He always makes things worse. Man, I wish my high school team played in our real games as well as we did in practice. We would have won every game and had five or six guys rush over 1000 yards.

  29. Jerry Jones is the death of the Dallas Cowboys and will be until the death of Jerry Jones. The really disappointing part is his son is heir to the team. Hopefully Stephen is less concerned with his ego and more concerned about winning. Like all good fans, I’ll just ride it out and hope for the best.

  30. Jerry, stop drinking g-tonics during practice…

    It a shame when you start getting old and delusional.

    signs of senility!

  31. Your QB has an ongoing case of fumblitis, your defense sucks, and you have coach that either don’t know what he’s doing or is scared to make a move without your good graces! ~~~SMH~~~

  32. O.K., let’s check the schedule.

    Sorry Jerry, it’s not the NY Scout Teams but the NY Giants instead. Bummer dude.

  33. And I want competent, honest people running our government. And for the Kardashians to be sent to colonize Mars (anything further away would be ok too). Maybe Jerry should “want” a GM who doesn’t suck – that would be progress. I think he’s had all that plastic surgery just so he doesn’t even have to look at himself in the mirror.

  34. I understand That Jerry has his own radio show, but is it weekly or daily? No other GM/Owner in ANY league or ANY sport talks this much.

  35. Add the ESPN hometown favorites Patriots to that list please.

    Do you think we could one week without a article on
    or about this clown?

  36. Often good businessmen (and whatever you think of Jerry Jones you have to give him that) take over sports teams and quickly find out that their business acumen does not always lead to good sports management; usually their business instincts take over and they find people with the right qualifications to take over. It’s interesting that Jones just won’t take the hint despite many years of great expectations resulting in crushing disappointments….still get the feeling he desperately needs to show Jimmy Johnson he can get it done without him and the players he brought in…..

  37. Jerry, Jerry, Jerry consider this, if you weren’t an owner, do you know of any owner that would hire you as a GM? I didn’t think so. That means as a GM you suck swamp water.
