Jerry Jones: Cowboys had a “morale victory” against the Broncos

Despite the fact that the Dallas Cowboys were one drive away from defeating the Denver Broncos on Sunday,  but ended up squandering the game away with another Tony Romo fourth quarter interception, owner Jerry Jones believes his team had a morale victory.

“I do. I know what’s going to happen to me when I say this, but that’s a good term,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.” This is a morale victory. It’s not a loser talking here. We can build off this.  I feel as good as you could possible feel at 2-3. We are going to win enough games to get where we want to be. And get knocking on the door to where we want to be. This was a moral victory to day for us..Yes.”

Jones praised Romo’s performance despite the interception.

“I see the fundamentals of what our plans were when we were in the off season and Romo was going to take more of a responsibility,” Jones said. “If he plays like that. We are going to have a heck of year and will be knocking on the door. We will beat most teams if we play like that.”

Tony Romo didn’t do anything new today.  He once again put up elite numbers, but choked when the game mattered the most.

  • Dallas fan forever

    Romo did not choke at a time when the k\line needed to be its strongest it failed. Everyone can say what they want but if you score 48 points in the NFL and not win thats a failure of the defense not the guy who put the points on the board

    when you start thinking and talking like this owner and the fans buy it, you will end up like the eagles fans. they have not won a championship since 1960 and that is not what this game is about. after many years of not winning a championship the eagles fans were content to settle for lesser goals,like beating the cowboys became a successful season ,and whatever it would take to not see failure. the cowboys have been failing now for 19 years and the owner is trying to convince the fans that lesser is ok. well not for me and not for the great cowboys of the past. he has blamed it on everything and anything except the truth. He is the problem and will continue to be the problem as demonstrated by this morale victory talk. One thing and one thing only made the cowboys great in the past and that was a win it all attitude and giving everything they had. Keep letting this clown convince you that smaller goals are fine and the cowboys and their fans will be just like the eagles fans soon and will not win for 53 years. How many head coaches have been the excuse? how many offense or defense head coaches have been the excuse? how many QB’s have been the excuse? to much talent, to many great players and coaches have come and gone while avg. or less is acceptable in the past 19 years. and this type of talk proves my point. When this owner allows a GM to come in and he stays out of the team functions other then ownership, then and only then will we not end up like eagles fans.
