Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been more willing to be publicly critical of his coaching staff this season given the sky-high, Super Bowl expectations Dallas entered 2019 with. Sunday following a 13-9 loss to the Patriots was no different.
“You should be able to come up here in a season with a good team and be able to play the New England Patriots, with the way they’re going during these years and pegged with the home-field advantage in this climate, you should be able to come in here and lose a game and not have it [be] a statement game one way or the other about your team,” Jones said via NFL Media’s Judy Battista. “We’ve managed to get ourselves in a position where playing this game was a statement game about us. It’s frustrating to me to just be reminded that some of the fundamentals of football and coaching were what beat us out there today.”
“With the makeup of this team, I shouldn’t be this frustrated,” Jones added.
