Full Version: What does Jerry say?
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
Apparently Jerry Jones has a good side. For One, he rooted for the Eagles over the Patriots. But he also has an honest side that a lot of the sports media just flat out ignored. It also sounds like he's putting Garrett on the hot seat, which I'd rather he didn't. wink.gif
"They didn't have a quarterback either, and they got one, and then they lost him and they got one," Jones said, referring to Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles stepping in for injured starting QB Carson Wentz. "You didn't have [Ezekiel Elliott], so good excuse. But they didn't have a lot of their players."
"We got some comparables to where they are, so then why not us? What's wrong with us," he questioned. "They got a young quarterback. They got a young coach. They just got a better owner. Not as good a general manager but better owner."

Uh Jerry, you don't have a better GM either!

The thing the Cowboys have never gotten since the Jimmy Johnson years.

Character matters.

They never will as long as Jerry is around.

They want the loud, the brash, the swagger.

Character is what propels a team with so many injuries to do what we did.
This moron's gibberish is worse than listening to Alan Greenspan.

Did Jerry Jones actually root for Eagles in Super Bowl?

By Dave Zangaro | NBC Sports Philadelphia March 05, 2018 9:19 AM

It wasn't long ago when Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was screaming into his pillow about the Eagles' being in the Super Bowl while his team was at home.
But it turns out, he did the unthinkable a month ago.
He rooted for the Eagles.
"As much as we have the rivalry that we have, and as frustrating as it was for the Cowboys not to be playing, as much as all of that, I was proud of them, given that narrow set of circumstances, could root for them," Jones said last week to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "That takes it right down to just absolutely no choice, you either do or you die. And I want to go again."
Like the Eagles in 2017, the Cowboys were the No. 1 seed in the 2016 NFC playoffs, but they were bounced in the divisional round. The Cowboys followed up their 13-3 season with a disappointing 9-7 mark.
Jones said the Eagles' Super Bowl victory has put more pressure on the Cowboys, who haven't won a Super Bowl since 1995 and haven't made it past the divisional round since then.
During the 2017 season, the Cowboys eventually ended up losing Ezekiel Elliott during his six-game suspension that hung over the team all year, and they had middle linebacker Sean Lee for just 11 games. The Eagles, of course, lost their starting quarterback, left tackle, middle linebacker, running back, special teams ace and kicker.
"So just the fact that they did it the way they did it, really for me it sure eliminates one of the real excuses," Jones said. "You can say that you just can�€™t have the kind of depth, but they didn�€™t have necessarily that kind of depth but they had enough that they shifted some of the ability of the team to execute their parts where they had their regulars, and we didn�€™t do that."
