Jerry Jones 'Dumbfounded' Dallas Cowboys are 1-6

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is so distraught by his team’s play this season that he can’t even get their record correct.

“I’m embarrassed. Of course I am,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 35-17 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon. “And, to every fan, I should have and do take the ultimate, ultimate responsibility. I do. That’s the way we’re structured. That’s the way I run it. There’s no question that I have the plan and executing it to have the best players and the best coaching that we can have. I’m dumbfounded that we are 1-7.”

Jones misspoke during his post-game speech. The Cowboys are actually 1-6.

“You couldn’t get me to say it, but you know that I thought we had a team here that could be one of the top competitive teams in the NFL,” Jones continued. "I’m very, very, very sorry to our fans. You should have better than this.

“You can tell by the way some of the things that we’ve done to certainly make the Cowboys everything you want them to be, you should be able to tell that I won’t rest until we’ve figured some things out to get us in a different spot. … What it is, I don’t have that.”

Here is a great quote from ESPN analyst Mike Ditka about the Cowboys.

“If they’re not toast, they’re pretty well charred,” Ditka said. “…I didn’t know Jon Kitna was still playing football. I really didn’t…Not that he can’t play, but it’s going to take a big effort to rally around him.”
