Jerry Jones swears on the air, gets dumped from live radio interview

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has never been known for his filter, but he was particularly unfiltered in a radio interview this morning.

As Jones talked about all the ways he’s disappointed in his 6-7 team, he was heard muttering, “bulls–t,” before the confused hosts on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas lost contact with him.

At that point, the station’s program director got on the air to explain that the station’s system that prevents callers from using curse words live on the radio had cut Jones off. Jones apparently swore twice during the interview, and the second time they tried to bleep him, it dumped the call.

Jones is certainly not hiding his disappointment, either with head coach Jason Garrett or his players, whom Jones says are not playing well enough. Jones said everyone in the building is upset with how the season is going.

“We all feel like hell,” Jones said.

The good news for Jones is that his team still has a good chance of winning the NFC East. A 6-7 team with a good chance of winning its division might sound like bulls–t, but it’s not.

  1. As a Jaguars fan who has lived through 2 decades of “patience” and “improvement” I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.

  2. Why do we keep adding in “has the chance to make the playoffs.”

    Making the playoffs is supposed to be an accomplishment. A reward. The only reason Philly/Dallas will make the playoffs is because the rules says that *someone* has to. If there was ever an example that best illustrates ‘participation’ trophy, it is winning your division at 7-9 or 8-8.

    Yeah, yeah… I know what once you make the playoffs, anything can happen, but let’s not hold on to that minuscule hope.

  3. Lol jerry is trash as an owner.

    They would be better if he would butt out and let a coach coach and a GM manage.

    Garrett is trash, but that’s what you get when you have a yes man

  4. “As a Jaguars fan who has lived through 2 decades of “patience” and “improvement” I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.”
    ____________

    Be careful what you wish for. Jerry Jones hates to lose but what he hates even more is not having 100% control. That has doomed Dallas to years of mediocrity as Jerry refuses to bring in a quality coach or good GM. The minute he fires Garrett he’ll bring in some new puppet or quickly alienate a quality coach by meddling. He ran Jimmy Johnson off out of pure jealousy because he couldn’t stand praise going to his coach rather than to himself.

  5. As a Jaguars fan who has lived through 2 decades of “patience” and “improvement” I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.

    If Jerruh’s actions over the last 30 years strike you as “giving a damn”…

  6. I’d like to see the networks dump him and his football team. I’m damned sick and tired of seeing Jones and his lousy team on every sports media outlet every single day. America’s team my patoot.

  7. He’s beyond pathetically desperate now, he’s got that team so tight they’re scared to do anything in case they screw up.

    Desperation is never a good look.

  8. I kinda get why he’s cursing under his breath. It’s not like they don’t have playmakers on offense. But their defense doesn’t seem to want to tackle anyone. Trubs ran for a TD and the defense just stood there and watched him waltz into the endzone. Curses Jerrah!!

    As a Jaguars fan who has lived through 2 decades of “patience” and “improvement” I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.
    ……………………………………..
    Yet the Jags have advanced further in the playoffs the last 2 decades. Giving a damn and actually creating the right environment are 2 different things.

  10. I love how everyone keeps talking about the NFC East being the worst division ever, yet they forget how the Seahawks won the division once at 7-9 and even won a playoff game that year.

    Until a team wins the Div below 500, it won’t be the worst div ever, as bad as it is this year

  11. As a Pats fan who lived through framegate and Jones’s delight in the league punishing TB12 (because they didn’t know cold weather causes footballs to lose pressure), I’m not sad his team is going nowhere. It’s fitting.

  12. The problem with the Cowbells is …Jerry Jones.
    Jerry Jones needs to fire … Jerry Jones.

    Jerry Jones appears to be insanely egotistical. He wants to be the one and only star of his team.
    As soon as a coach gets a lot of attention, Jones fires him.
    After winning Super Bowls, both Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer were fired. Why …. because they were taking some of the stardom away from Jones.

  13. Jerry needs to hire a coach that he’s gonna let do his thing without being all in the media every week with veiled threats.
    Get back a Jimmy Johnson, Bill Parcells type.

    You keep hiring puppets, you’ll be the only one to blame since your hand is up their rear.

  14. Jones starts his analysis with false “facts”. He assumes that the players that HE CHOSE are perfect and if the Cowboys lose, it must be the coaching.

    Jerry has done a decent job of getting good players, but he always seems to forget that the players have to work together as a team. All Dallas has is a collection of good players. They don’t have a team.

    Some of that is Garrett’s fault, but a lot of the fault goes to Jerry. Jerry doesn’t understand that he’s part of the problem.

  15. Say what you want about the man, but he is a fierce competitor and loves his football team. He is also a heck of a lot more fan friendly than most owners. Truth.

  16. Jerry, just give up the GM role. Get a real GM and coach, then let them do their thing. He’s not getting any younger and he’s trying to prove that he can do what Jimmy did over 25 years ago…let it go Jerry. Jimmy was the brains and the football guy, your not and you will never will be.

  17. As much as i dislike the cowgirls you have to admire this guys passion. I mean he could be like the bungles organization and just not care.

  18. I don’t hear them calling there self America’s team much anymore. I don’t think they ever where except in Dallas.

  19. I almost feel bad at how much Jerry Jones’ frustration gives me joy, but only almost.
    Cowboys get unbelievable coverage for a team that has been mediocre since last century.
    Than is all.

  20. This is what happens when a team starts to believe their press clippings. Still have to go out and execute guys….

  21. Bottom line is….for 25 years Jones has been obsessed to show the world he can win a super bowl without a Jimmy Johnson built team.
    He can’t do it and it’s eating him alive.

    The whole mess belongs to the clueless and incompetent owner!

  22. He should be pissed. He’s put a fairly good roster together and neither Garret / coaching staff nor the players seem to be able to motivate themselves against tougher opponents.

    Jerry may provide us all with some amusement but he’s a heck of a lot better than the owners like Martha Ford and scam artist Haslam who just give the fans lip service while laughing all the way to the bank with the huge TV money checks they get for putting awful products on the field.

  23. THIS IS HOW YOU RESTRUCTURE THE NFL.

    You would never recommend the league restructure so there are 16 divisions each with 2 teams. Because at that point you could settle it with one game rather than 16.

    So then ask yourself if a 4 team division is really all that different? I would recommend a consolidation. 4 divisions each with 8 members.

    Under this system, you have 4 division winners and then we go one of two ways: also extend the automatic bidding to each division’s runner up, which may produce some situations where an 11-5 team from one division does not make the postseason but a 10-6 team from another one does. But at least you’re unlikely with 8 teams per division to have a situation where an 8-8 team qualifies while a 10-6 does not.

    Or … you can reserve the automatic bidding for division winners and qualify the next four best teams by record within each conference regardless of division.

    Since there has always been “inter-league” play so to speak in the NFL, I am not sure conferences make any sense.

    So qualify 4 league-wide division winners and then reserve 4 spots for the teams with the best record regardless of division or conference membership.

    Division winners are also awarded a home playoff game. There are no “byes.”

    What do you think?

    As a Cowboy fan since 1967, what do you think Cowboy Fans have been doing for the past 23 years and counting. If Jerry really cared a damn he would step down as GM and put Football people in charge and go back to signing checks.

  25. Funny thing is they can still easily win the division and they’ll probably end up hosting SF, and they’re the one team I can see stumbling and slipping on a banana peel and losing to Dallas. Watch them do that and bring back Garrett

    Brother as a jag fan u couldn’t have said it better man
    I wish Wayne weaver would of sold the franchise to anyone but shad khan even his soccer team is trash he just doesn’t care let’s these clowns tear down our franchise with horrible decisions

  27. “The good news for Jones is that his team still has a good chance of winning the NFC East. A 6-7 team with a good chance of winning its division might sound like bulls–t, but it’s not.”

    Yes, it is

  28. What are the odds on Garrett making sure they don’t make the playoffs so he cans tart interviewing for a new job asap??? I’m sure he wants to get away from that lunatic!!

  29. The only thing that would have made this better is if the Cowboys would have given Dak and Cooper big money extensions too and ensured the Cowboys would be terrible for another half decade.

  30. “THIS IS HOW YOU RESTRUCTURE THE NFL.”

    Nope, that’s ridiculous.

    If you really want to make things better change the split of the TV money. Take half of it and make 256 shares, one for winning each regular season game. I guarantee you all the crappy franchises that have put bad products on the field for 10-20 years+ would suddenly get it together and become much more competitive.

  31. “As a Jaguars fan who has lived through 2 decades of “patience” and “improvement” I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.”

    i’d pick two decades of patience and improvement over 2 decades of an owner unable to see how he contributed to the problem.

  32. Is he rally trying to send Urban Meyer to an early grave? Owners who are also GMs are buying sleepless nights.

  33. There is a lot of talk about “culture” and how important it is to developing a winning team. For the clueless Skip Bayless: The winning culture developed by Pete Carroll is the reason the perhaps less talented Seahawks are 10-2 and the Cowboys are 6-7. JJ has been unsuccessful for the past 25 years because of the ridiculously poor culture he has developed himself.

  34. Getting angry and cursing is important to get the team fired up. After all, look at how Michael Bennett’s tirade from last week helped their play against Chicago.

  35. Full disclosure…Steelers fan here. I respect Jerry because he is honest, passionate and “in your face”. A lot I don’t agree with but not because he is deceptive. He has put together a good team. Let’s put the blame where it should be…on the players. They aren’t playing up to their potential. Jerry wants to win and it shows. Don’t blame him for under performance. And, he didn’t make the schedule nor the rules. The same in the past for 11-5 teams who didn’t make the playoffs. And, I wouldn’t re-up Dak…if he is so good, then he should be able to go anywhere. They have the weapons now. Missed tackles and missing open receivers is not Jerry’s fault.

  36. I find it interesting that I am still hearing people ask Jerry to step down as GM and “put a football man” in the role. Honestly, how many GMs have more experience than Jerry? He has been doing this a long time. It is fair to critique his overall performance in the role, but to imply that he is inexperienced as a GM is nonsense.

  37. Melting down rather quickly. We’ll see Jerruh trying to direct traffic on the High Five Interchange (that’s in Dallas for those who’ve never been)

  38. “Until a team wins the Div below 500, it won’t be the worst div ever, as bad as it is this year”

    Huh? You JUST referenced when that happened at 7-9. That IS “below 500.”
    So I can ONLY assume you meant “Until a team wins the Division with only 6 wins” or “Two games under 500” it won’t be the worst division ever.

    And just for the record, the OTHER times that happened most of the other teams in the Division were all bunched closely having beaten each other.

    Right now the Skins have 2 win and the Giants 3 wins. This truly MAY be the “worst Division ever” with a team that won it below 500 when you take ALL of the teams into account, not just the record of the winning team.

  39. I do believe that if was an owner of a NFL team I would probably be right there too to a certain degree. I mean that would be one of the reasons why I would buy my own team. I like football I would want to be in on some day to day happenings and have some fun with it but.. I know I do not understand all the ins and outs of building a competitive team so I would hire knowledgeable people for that but I would be giving my opinion from time to time.

  40. Maybe Jerry needs to stop and put this into perspective: people in this country and the world have no homes,no food,no hope…people are being obliterated by mass shootings and wars. He’s having tantrums about losing some football games,and the team is STILL in 1st place. Come on!

  41. Whatever, at this point, this division needs the Redskins to win it.

    Seriously.

    What an embarrassment.

    Might be time for Rodger to give the nation a “Shield” pep talk.

  42. Huh? You JUST referenced when that happened at 7-9. That IS “below 500.”

    ______________

    Hey, take it easy dude. Math is hard.

  43. Is there any other GM/Owner, of any professional sports team, who craves attention as much as Jerry Jones!

    The guy is crazy and Dallas’ biggest problem.

  44. While I agree that Jason Garrett is probably not the answer at the head coaching position but most of the blame for 20 years of playoff futility lies at the feet of the GM. Wait, the Cowboys don’t have a real football GM…..

    see the point?

  45. as someone who never could stand the cowboys or the “americas team” BS label, but respected their success, it laughable with what Jerrah does.

    keep it up, at least there is someone who is as crappy as my team and gets that kind of run. Although, you will never have Davis doing what JJ did.

    not so sure that JJ jr. will do any better either. time for mike mcarthy to run that team… oh wait, nobody of any quality will go through what parcells did there.

    nevermind, nothing to see here, just the usual big D drama.

  47. All of sudden we are offended by curse words with everything else going on in this world. lol

  48. I like that he cares so much, but as a non fan of his team, I wish he would go away so another team can be in the limelight.

  49. “In charge of their own destiny” is one of the most idiotic sayings I’ve ever heard. It’s like the Bears had nothing to say in the game.

  50. “All of sudden we are offended by curse words with everything else going on in this world.”

    Using curse words on the public airwaves is offensive. Decent people should be upset about it.

  51. “The good news for Jones is that his team still has a good chance of winning the NFC East. A 6-7 team with a good chance of winning its division might sound like bulls–t, but it’s not.”

    The “Experts” also said that the Cowboys had a good chance to beat the Bills and the Bears. You see how that turned out.

    Smart money is on the Eagles to win the division, but go ahead and keep picking the Cowboys.

  52. The ‘Boys owner should take a page from either the Niners, Saints or Patriots on the assembling of a team and running an NFL organization. Then he would not be so unhappy.

    The Cowboys have not really been “America’s Team” for more than 20 years now – so why are they STILL called that, and getting so much attention and such praise for mediocrity

  53. BS is now the curse word to end all curse words? What a joke. Jerry likes to talk and a station decided to make a federal case out of a very mild word. Makes the media look very bad. Reminds me of Kimmel’s unnecessary censorship skit.

  54. Jerry Jones is NEVER going to grasp the fact that maybe this team is quitting on HIM for all the meddling and threats of termination. It’s hard enough to win an NFL football game with GOOD ownership, coaching and skilled personnel. Imagine trying to do it with this old geezer there at every turn. It has to be infuriating.

  55. The NFC team(s) that miss the playoffs with 10+ wins are going to be thrilled when the winner of the NFC East makes it in with a .500 or worse record.

    You must be too young for Raiders of the lost ark. Great film. Not a bunch of cgi crap

  57. third time i’ve tried to comment;

    Dakota is NOT an NFL quarterback, THAT is why the Cowsills are 6-7 and not 10-3;

    PRESCOTT is the reason Dallas are 0-7 against winning teams, because he simply cannot make the plays necessary to keep his defence off the field for longer than a commercial break;

    Prescott STILL cannot read an NFL defence, and his play has deteriorated steadily since his rookie year when he served as the second RB to Zeke;

    his only consistent quality is he’s the owner’s pet, so the two of them deserve each other and to drown together in their own self-created malaise of mediocrity;

    ironically, Jones was one of the leading architects of the new NFL mediocrity where having as many teams as possible hover around 8-8 for long as possible makes for great TV ratings;

    Jerry rants and raves he wants to win, but if that were true he would’ve gone with Kaepernick;

    but this is the guy who had to be held back from drafting Manziel;

    who he picked just proved he cannot outplay Trubisky—another bad joke of an NFL quarterback who should’ve stuck with baseball—even with a superior team;

    but then, that’s been Jerruh’s MO for 25 years, no?

  58. I like the idea of an owner who gives a damn.
    ——-
    problem is he’s the problem. as GM he simplisticly collects talent rather than having the insight to build a team. not to mention that he is responsible for the coaching as well.

  59. Jerry Jones is actually a great owner from a player view.
    He is very supportive of his players. Where Jerry gets in trouble
    is when he drafts player like Dez Bryant ..who as an athlete
    possess unique above average skills. However on the negative
    side a player like Dez has huge challenges in his other areas
    of his life.
    Jerry means well. No owner is as empathetic as Jerry Jones. However
    this is a problem. Players like Dez start to have off field issues

    that leads to on field issues. When Dez was late or didn’t show up
    Jerry and the front office tried to help. The problem is that some
    players like Dez …keep using the power they have to get away
    with not showing up on time or workouts in the offseason.
    This leads to a breakdown in the team chemistry. You have some
    players who are always on time ..then you have others ..who use
    their power to be late based upon some “ family .. ..issue.
    Belichick would never put up with such conduct. Actually Garrett would not
    either, but for, Jerry.
    I believe the biggest problem with the Cowboys is the defense, mostly the the
    Defensive line. I believe Rod Marinelli is to blame.
    He runs the “ Tampa 2 “ defense. This defense was actually Chuck
    Noll’s in Pittsburgh. He had Joe Greene. The next version was in
    Tampa where Marinelli ran it with Warren Sapp.
    If you want to run a Tampa 2 defense in this day and age …you need
    an player like Greene, Sapp or Donald
    If you look at the Cowboys defense In the last 4 years ..the interior defensive
    line has been very weak .
    The Cowboys can’t stop the run. This year after Crawford was hurt Dallas
    had no run stopper. The other problem is the lack of discipline with Lawrence
    and others …Lawrence picks a side and goes …..he guesses ..the defensive
    line has under preformed …that is on Marinelli and has been the story for the
    last 4 years….can’t stop the run .. and the defensive line in third down
    passing situations ..has been totally undisciplined and never gets the sacks
    or turnovers ..a bad offense needs .
    Jerry hired Rob Ryan .,,bad call. Then hired an over the hill coach
    Kiffen. He was horrible …he couldn’t recognize anything..in a game
    he was a disaster. Jerry realized ..but then made the same mistake
    hiring Marinelli …nice guy ..but …plays a totally vanilla defense.
    Just remember.. ..Green Bay playoff loss …Green Bay has 4 th and over 20 yards with 25 or so
    seconds …Marinelli rushes 3 …Rodgers sits in pocket for over 7 seconds
    As he watches his Tight end run from the right hash all the way to the
    left hash and beats ..Bryon Jones …for a 40 yard pick up. The next play
    is a winning field goal by Green Bay ….Marinelli played it safe ….
    he played it safe out of the playoffs. On 4th and over 20:..you let the
    offensive get all the time it needs ? …no you dictate ..you force
    a throw early by pressuring …not sitting back .
    Another example, was last years Rams playoff game ..the defensive line
    was crushed. The Rams had 2 players with over 100 yards in running
    what did the Cowboys do to help the run ..in off season ,..nothing.

  60. I am soooooo sick of seeing and hearing from Jerry Jones!!!!! Please stop giving him what he wants more than anything — the idea that he is important!!!
