Cowboys owner Jerry Jones [1] did not have a good day Sunday. Before, during, and after the game, things just did not go his way.

In an interview [2] 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 [3].

‘€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 [4] tweeted that following the game, Jones was seen pounding angrily on the Cowboys’€™ locker room door because he was locked out.
