Dez Bryant had two chances to respond to Jason Pierre-Paul’s claim that the New York Giants were going to rough up the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
‘That was one that will hang with us for a little while, but it’s not the end of the world,’ said Jones on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan.
Jason Garrett will make it through the bye week after a 49-17 loss to New Orleans, preaching the importance of not overreacting to by far his worst game in two-plus years since he was the midseason replacement for Wade Phillips.
The resistance to change is understandable. Garrett’s entire foundation – not just as a coach but as a person – is unflappability. And Jones’ stated position is sound as well.
The offseason decision to give play-calling duties to Bill Callahan was full of drama. But Jerry Jones was very clear on Tuesday when asked if the responsibility could change hands yet again.
The Dallas Cowboys were beaten and battered heading into Sunday night’s game against the Saints. They left New Orleans in even worse shape.
With multiple reports this past week of Cowboys WR Dez Bryant having issues with a possible herniated disc, GM/Owner Jerry Jones made it clear he has no idea where a report like that came from.
At the end of the 2012 NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. This week, Ryan brings a defense he improved from the worst in the NFL into one of the best to a big game with the team who gave up on him.
Jerry Jones said on his radio show Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan that defensive end DeMarcus Ware was likely to return after missing the first three games of his nine-career with a thigh injury.
On Sunday, Bryant threw fuel on the fire after receiving an unsportsmanlike penalty in the second half for removing his helmet while arguing with officials.
The Cowboys will need a consistent pass rush to disrupt the NFC’s top passing attack on Sunday in New Orleans. They’re expecting help from a familiar face.
As painful as a loss in Detroit was a week earlier, Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys put their season in jeopardy when they fell behind one-win Minnesota in the fourth quarter at home.
