Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is rarely at a loss for words. But he didn’t have a lot to say when he was asked to explain how his team could play so badly on Thanksgiving.
The day after the Cowboys’ loss to the Eagles, Jones said on his KRLD-FM radio show that he knows the team looked bad, but he isn’t sure why.
“We really stunk it up all the way around,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “There’s a lot of specific reasons for having that bad day. We didn’t execute. We may not have played with the passion you would expect in a game like that. Don’t ask me why. And I guess if you can’t ask me, who can you ask?”
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said his players just needs to put that loss behind them.
“The most important thing for us to do is to clean up this [Philadelphia] game and go back to work and have a great week of practice and do everything we can to have a great win in Chicago next Thursday. That’s where our focus is,” Garrett said.
If the Cowboys keep stinking it up like they did on Thanksgiving, Garrett may have to answer to Jones. And if the Cowboys really keep stinking it up, Garrett may not be answering to Jones any more after this season.
