There is no denying that the Dallas Cowboys have been annihilated by injuries this season, but they’re also just not a good football team, both of those statements can be true. Losing Dak Prescott for the year was a disastrous blow, they’ve had injuries all over the offensive line, and Andy Dalton being knocked unconscious last week makes things even tougher for this team.
But at the end of the day, the game of football can be cruel, and this Cowboys team is 2-5 on the year after being embarrassed the past two weeks.
Despite the injury woes, fingers are being pointed all over the place, but most are in the direction of owner Jerry Jones and the head coach he hired to replace Jason Garrett, Mike McCarthy.
Jones joined 105.3 The Fan for his weekly radio hit on Tuesday morning and let’s just say he was not in the best of moods. Host Shan Shariff asked Jones whether or not there was a leadership void in the Cowboys’ locker room and Jones got snippy with him.
Shan Shariff: “Does your team have a leadership void?”
Jerry Jones: “Where, in the offensive line?”
Shan Shariff: “Just overall…”
Jerry Jones: “But seriously, seriously. Where would you have a leadership void? Is it an experience void? Is it a talent void? I’m not trying to be cute here. The answer is no.
Shan Shariff: (Attempting to clarify the question)
Jerry Jones: “Well, just shut up and let me answer it. No.”
Leave it to the 78-year-old owner to close out the interview with some ‘old adage’ that has absolutely nothing to do with anything.
Again, the Cowboys are in a tough spot due to the many major injuries their team has suffered, but they also play in the worst division in the history of the NFL and are just one game out of first.
