Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a tough Sunday

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did not have a good day Sunday. Before, during, and after the game, things just did not go his way.

In an interview with Bob Costas prior to the game, Jones, the team’s owner and GM, said he would have fired another general manager who was in the position he’s in.

‘€œWell, I think so, because he was there to dismiss,’€ Jones told Costas. ‘€œI have always worked for myself, and you can’€™t do that. You basically have to straighten that guy out in the mirror when you work for yourself. But certainly, if I’€™d had the discretion, I’€™ve done it with coaches and certainly I would have changed a general manager.’€

Jones also affirmed his support for coach Jason Garrett.

‘€œThis is a long-term thing with me,’€ Jones said. ‘€œI like what I’€™m seeing. I don’€™t like that we are 3-4, but I like the direction.’€

The Cowboys lost a close game to the undefeated Falcons, 19-13. The game could have gone the Cowboys’ way if they’€™d made a few key plays.

“Very disappointed that we didn’t have a chance and play better in the second half,” Jones said. “A play here, a play there might have made a difference. They’re 8-0 because they’re a good team. They play tough at home.”

Matt Barrie of NBC5 in Dallas-Fort Worth tweeted that following the game, Jones was seen pounding angrily on the Cowboys’€™ locker room door because he was locked out.
