Jerry Jones is not taking this loss as a clear loss after the L.A. Rams beat his Dallas Cowboys 30-22. Like fans, there’s a reason for it all.
Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that the reason his team lost was because of the field and footwear, not because of their overall performance.
“I’ve had the benefit of the tape, looking at the tape, the evaluation by both scouts as well as the coaches. We frankly had never gotten traction. And I mean that literally. That was a slippery field. If I had to do it over again, we would be really scrutinizing our footwear. Our cleats. We had trouble digging in, so to speak. Well you say, ‘That’s an excuse.’ It is not because not only physically but we had trouble digging in with just the effectiveness of our defense. And we did not stop them, and we did not stop the run.”
Still sounds like an excuse. Head coach Jason Garrett is supposedly getting an extension and Jones said if he was on the coaching market, he “would’ve had five offers.”
Cowbyos quarterback Dak Prescott, who will be in his final year of his contract next season, had two touchdowns and 492 passing yards in this postseason.
Cowboys last made playoffs in 2016 and won their conference in 1995 where they moved on to win their fifth Super Bowl.
