Jerry Jones Shows Off Sadistic Side, Says He Wants People In The Organization To Suffer
In an ominous, terse tone befitting the maniacal ranting of a bloodthirsty tyrant, Jerry Jones clearly articulated his unhappiness and anger regarding the most public yet of his many humiliations involving his Cowboys during a postgame tirade yesterday. The frustrated owner warned that heads will likely roll due to the disgraceful performance the team had in its 45-7 drubbing by the Packers. Via FOX Sports Southwest:
“There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences,” the Cowboys owner said. “I’m talking about within the team — players, coaches who have got careers. This is certainly a setback. I know firsthand what it is to have high expectations. I think unquestionably that our expectations were thinking we’re something we were not, possibly looking at what might be relative to a Super Bowl. All of those things have certainly contributed early.”
Well, I suppose it’s a good thing that Jones has recognized that a 1-7 record can certainly be looked at as a “setback.” Better late than never, I guess. This development can only mean bad things on the horizon for beleaguered coach Wade Phillips (from this point forward, Wade Phillips has to always be referred to as beleaguered, no matter the situation), among others within the organization, and despite Jones’ public proclamations that Phillips would be the head coach of the Cowboys for the balance of the season, my guess would be that all bets are off at this stage of this embarrassing nightmare.
When attempting to explain exactly why things have gone so horribly this season, Jones was at a loss:
“I can’t put my finger on it because I don’t have enough fingers.”
I don’t know why, but I find that quote quite amusing. Don’t have enough fingers. Ha. I suppose Cowboys fans probably don’t, but that’s there problem. For everyone else, we are free to enjoy watching this epic trainwreck from afar. It certainly is mesmerizing theater, to say the least. How ’bout ‘dem Cowboys?!?
